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...

Re: System hangs

Hi, I've also found a reboot or a restart of the streaming service to be quite effective. See http://community.vboxcomm.com/viewtopic.php?f=12&t=112 for how to do it from a phone or tablet. I also now schedule a restart (via a scene within the home automation software Domoticz that runs on on my Ras...

Re: System hangs

Thanks for the update. I will try the older version next week. It took me quite some time to set up the box last time so I need to find some time around work and family to fit this in. Any ideas when the next release of the firmware is due? For example I logged the issue of "Enable EIT" not working ...

Can I have an update please???? Re: System hangs

Can I have an update please? Having answered OrlandoM's question only yesterday my VBox has just hung again today (with the same symptoms as the screenshot I posted on 21 April), missing 2 recordings completely while I was out. This is extremely annoying as I bought the Vbox for improved reliability...

Re: System hangs

Hi, yes from time to time it does hang. I've found that if I restart it, either via the web GUI, if it responds, or by pulling the plug if not, then it seems to work again. Sometimes I've managed to navigate to the services page and just restart the Streaming service - quicker than a restart.

How do I get support for my Vbox?

I logged my problem with my VBox here on this forum several days ago and included a log. See http://community.vboxcomm.com/viewtopic.php?f=11&t=91. I also emailed details to support@vboxcomm.com. I've not even had an acknowledgement that you have seen or read the incident. Am I in the wrong place? P...

Remote shutdown and restart

Just a little tip to remotely reboot or shutdown your box for when it inevitably plays up and you need to restart it. This can be done from an Android phone using "HTTP Request Shortcuts" or similar so you don't need to find a PC/tablet. Shutdown http://<VBox IP>/cgi-bin/ManageApp/ManageApp?OPTION=4...
