Humax FOX T2 reboots on file scan

Postby rich2013 » Tue Dec 18, 2012 7:21 pm

Hi

I've connected a Humax Fox T2 to the latest version of PMS. It connects ok on the Humax, and you can navigate through the folder structures, but as soon as it needs to read files in the folder (to list them) then the Humax reboots itself. This is the debug.log that gets created in PMS :

You can see that it has set the profile for the device as POPCORN Hour automatically. Any thoughts on how to resolve ?

Thanks

First of all you have to realize that PMS does not know which device connects. It has to guess that from the incoming requests. Luckily devices tend to send fairly distinct request headers, so PMS can tell them apart.

PMS does not know your Humax Fox T2, but appears to be sending similar headers as the Popcorn Hour.
I don't know if that is harmful. To be safe, you could try to create a specific humax.conf as described in the FAQ:

FAQ: My device is not supported by PMS. How can I create a custom renderer.conf to make PMS recognize my device?

However, I'm not sure that a humax.conf will fix the reboot on the Humax side when scanning files.
It sounds more like a bug on the devices side: it should never be possible for any external DLNA request to cause a reboot when requesting files.

Have you tried asking on the Humax support forums?
