Re: Use Recordings Offline

If you can get the grey VBox Live TV app (legacy) to work! Seems very buggy to me on the several Android phones/tablets that I've tried.

Not quite sure why this one is promoted as the "pink" one seems to work so much better on phones and tablets, even though the notes say it's for tablets only.

Re: DVB-EIT support

Thanks, sadly the beta version 2.57.17 has caused me so many other problems with the whole system hanging and missing recordings over several days (http://community.vboxcomm.com/viewtopic.php?f=11&t=91&start=20#p780). So I am now loathe to use anything except the 2.57 that came with the VBox. 2.57 i...

Re: System hangs

Support people - it's really hard to try to help you to diagnose anything when you are asked to help "with your hands tied behind your back"! If I can't get the web interface to load then I can't change the log settings or download the log! We need an additional way to access the VBox! I've made my ...

Re: System hangs

We really appreciate your willingness to help! So, how about the diagnostics firmware suggestion then?? It's not easy to help very much without something like this. I am not at home or keeping an eye on my system all the time. The channel listed are the frequency number and not the TV channel OK th...

Re: System hangs

Hi Support, How about a diagnostics version of the firmware for people like myself who want a system that works and are also willing to help? I can pretty much pinpoint the time when my system crashed last time - I had 2 recordings in action (via MythTV). Both started at 1510 GMT. One recording term...

Re: System hangs

And loads of recordings failed again today - system completely hung. I will have a look for the xml file in a minute and send it over. However please note that all my recordings are done through MythTV, not directly from the VBox, so will this file help? I've been using MythTV now for 11 years and b...

Re: System hangs

Oh dear, I was so hopeful with this new firmware release but sadly it still hangs, meaning that all recordings fail to work until you come home a day or 2 later and log in excitedly to catch up on your recordings to find they haven't recorded! (A reboot seems to be the best fix). I updated my firmwa...

Re: power consumption & tuner locked

Hi, This doesn't answer your question directly but I do the same thing from within the home automation software Domoticz that runs on a Raspberry Pi.You can set up a scene to turn off the VBox then after a delay of 60 seconds, power off the timer switch. You do need to be able to send commands to th...
