I have the custom firmware on 2 x HDR-Fox T2 and it works well. More information here https://wiki.hummy.tv/wiki/Custom_Firmware_Overview https://wiki.hummy.tv/wiki/Install_Modified_Firmware The DetectAds package is one of my favourites as it automatically removes ads from recorded programs. https://hummy.tv/forum/threads/detectads-announcing-detectads-version-2.6534/
Does anyone have experience of the fox HDR with custom firmware? Also I have 5000 fvp but if I press the Netflix by mistake does anyone know how to get rid of the log in screen? Tia
I had the PVR8000T as well back in 2004. Got the the FOX T2 in 2010 and still going strong.
I've wired around my living room already for my sky box so I'm good. Managed to get a dtr t4000 1tb V3 for £55 on eBay. So will see how it goes but if it's rubbish £55 isn't too bad. Seen V2 models but no idea if there are differences between the versions.
Only problem is it doesn't have built in WiFi so you need it next to your router or you need a powerline plug.
