    humax pvr9200t file transfer ubuntu 7.10

    i have struggled with this problem for months now. it has been the only reason i ever boot to windows, but finally after gathering data and advice from various sources i got it working under ubuntu 7.10. see attachment

    This is how i did it:

    1. install libqt4-dev, libusb-dev and build-essential in synaptic package manager
    2. download and extract source code from http://www.andrewdsmith.plus.com/hummy/
    3. Open terminal and navigate to the extracted humax directory.
    4. Run "qmake-qt4 humaxGui.pro" ( ubuntu 7.10)
    5. Run "make".
    6. Run sudo /wherever the humax folder is/humax/humaxGui to open software as root
    7. Connect USB cable between PC and PVR.
    8. click connect on software
    9. hopefully your all done

    I am by no means an expert at linux or the command shell. I have spent months trawling various forums to get this working. all i have done is listed the steps i took. if these do not work for you then sorry i probably cannot help,

    Wow well done. I've just been lent a Humax box and reading through other forums on the Humax/Linux issue I came to the conclusion that this wasn't possible. Might give this a go. Thanks very much.

    I got humaxgui connected to my humax pvr9200t, when using sudo as mentioned in first message. But What I don't see, is any saved programs on my humax box. So do you have any idea what could cause this, and what would be the solution?

    PS. What would be best solution to try to get humaxgui working when using as user, not with sudo?

    I have tried both, first it was D2 by default and it seemed to be empty. Tested it again and yeah, D2 seems as empty. It connect ok though and shows Serial number etc. of the humax box.

    I have the same problem with the client not correctly parsing data from the Hummy.

    Turning the debugging on I can see data relating to recorded programmes being received by the client but its not parsing them correctly.

    I have a TS model - don't know if a firmware change may have broken something. Device information seems to mostly work although the recording status is intermittent.

    Hi, I am trying this on Ibex (8.10) and can get as far as loading the software and running the humaxGui by clicking on the icon in a File Browser window. When I click the 'connect' icon, it tells me that it 'Failed to connect to the device'. I'm unable to run the program from the terminal with sudo as it tells me to in the first post. Does anyone have any ideas please?

    Well I've now got the program running so all is well there, but I can't see any file on the Humax now, similar to the post above. I can connect and change between D1 and D2 but see no files. In the status window I get:


    Connected.

    HUMAX PVR Mass Storage (V1.0)

    Serial No :534A1E013031

    Any clues?
