Re: Unable to perform OTA firmware update

I have an XTi-3442 on software version XTI_VJ.2.65 and I've been getting this same error message for months... https://i.postimg.cc/jdTSqdnp/VBox-Software-Update-Error.jpg At first I thought there just wasn't any new versions to download but now I think there may be something wrong. Can someone advi...

Recording File Date Format

I have an XTi-3442 on software version XTI_VJ.2.65 At the moment my recordings are being labelled "name__channel__dd-mm-yyyy_hh-mm". Is there a setting somewhere to change this format? I would much rather the date be formatted "yyyy-mm-dd" so that the files are sorted correctly. At the moment they'r...

What software to extract subtitles?

What software is everyone using to extract subtitles from recordings? I've tried a dozen different programs but none work for .mpg files. I can play the recording in VLC media player and choose "Teletext subtitles - [English]" and I get the full teletext subtitles as they appear on my television, in...

Re: Additional Recording time (padding)

One of the ABC channels here has a thing called "Best Fest" where they will screen a full season or more of a particular show each day over a 6-8 hour period, back-to-back, ad-free, and with as little as a 15 second station ID between episodes. Fortunately, they are almost always on-schedule with th...

Re: Additional Recording time (padding)

I have an XTi-3442 on software version XTI_VJ.2.65, and I'm simply logging in using the Vbox's IP Address via Firefox to change settings, then still using Firefox, I schedule recordings via <IPaddress>/livetv/

Re: Additional Recording time (padding)

I'm trying to figure out how these settings are applied (only within Vbox, no Kodi nor Plex). Are the delay settings locked-in when the recording is scheduled, or are they "live" (taken when the recording starts, or ends)? If I schedule a recording shortly before the program begins and don't change ...

Re: Recordings one after another with padding at the same channel

Sorry for the late reply, I'm just catching up on older threads. I believe this is caused by the same tuner being used for both recordings, whereas if the programs were on two different channels, a second tuner would be used for the second recording. I have asked for this to be fixed in the Feature ...

Re: Auto Set Date and Time on Boot Up

Seeing as it will never be the year 2000 again, an easy way to implement this would be a simple check: if (year = "2000") then (wait 10 seconds) and (mimic the "Submit" button function on the bottom of the 'System > Manage' page) This should run every 10 seconds until the date is updated and then st...

Making Better Use of Multiple Tuners

I have an XTi-3442 on software version XTI_VJ.2.65 Two requests in one post! Firstly: I've noticed that only one tuner is used to scan the EPG from a live signal while the other tuner sits there unlocked and unused. Would it be possible for the other tuner to start scanning the next frequency in the...

Auto Set Date and Time on Boot Up

I have an XTi-3442 on software version XTI_VJ.2.65 We've been having multiple mains power failures every day here with the bushfires, and every time the power comes back on and the VBox boots up, it reverts to the default date and time of "Sat Jan 1, 2000" at "12:00:00". And every time this happens ...
