Thanks to Jimux from allsats team for the following:
Basically we have intervened between the hard disk and the firmware drivers by diverting output to a logical disk instead of direct to the physical disk. The system works well on all the disks we have tested but our resources are limited so we would like all members with TM800 boxes to try it. Whilst it is only necessary if, like me, you have a disk that wont record the system is robust and can be used on any disk.
Installation is two parts.
1. Install the attached DiskUtilities.xml file in /etc/ppanels 2. Open PPanels, Internal Disk Utilities
. Download software – don't worry it sits on the hard disk and does not reduce memory space like addons do.
. Create a disk of a suitable size. The process is slow but you can leave it running and go back to watching TV.
. Set the default recording path. And now you are ready to record to your internal sata disk, regardless of what make and model of disk you have. We would appreciate feed back, both positive and negative so we can enhance the system if necessary. Functions
create 18.104.22.168GB disk
Set new default recording path
Move recordings en mass to internal disk/movies, front usb, rear usb
Delete en mass all recordings in logical disk
remount disk after a reboot Presentation
Only valid functions are shown.
Cannot make disk before downloading software.
Cannot download software twice
Cannot delete or move non-existing files.
Can only move files to mounted devices. Note: This software will work on any TM800HD image, but the PPanel presentation layer relies on the enhanced Andromeda-HD PPanel interface to show all helptext and output correctly. The Andromeda PPanel has 3 lines of context sensitive help text, a wider window with more characters per line and dynamic highlighting of current line to assist in reading wide output. further information also available at allsats.co.uk ]]>
