I was asked what should be done to ensure there is no loss of TV during the switchover period. I did some digging a couple of things need to be done.
The Humax PVR-9300T needs to be retuned on April 4th and April 18th. If you have saved programs on saved on your PVR hard disk and wish to keep them. You need to carry out a factory reset. This will not delete your recordings but you will lose all your user settings and any timers you may have. So it may be worth making a note of them before you do the factory re-set.
You will need to do a second factory re-set for stage 2 of the switchover on the April 18.
The Humax PVR-9300T will re-tune itself to the new signals and settings.
To carry out a factory re-set do:
1. Press the MENU button.
2. Select Installation and press the OK button.
3. Enter the password using the NUMERIC(0-9) buttons.
4. Select Automatic Search from installation menu and press the OK
5. Automatic channel search begins.
Default password is 0000. That's four zeros.
The Humax is an excellent Freeview box. Affordable with a 320GB hard disk which allows 160 hours recording. It allows simultaneous viewing and recording of separate channels or programs.
The Humax has a couple of recurring bugs in the software. It occasionally hangs while switching channels. There are two solutions to the bug.
1. Wait. It takes 3 or 4 mins for normal operation to return.
2. Switch off and on. Normal startup follows.
The other minor irritant occurs during recorded programs replay. Sound drops intermittently. Hitting pause, then play sometimes fixes it. Sometimes not.
Otherwise its a great Freeview box.
That's about it.
If you run Debian stable, you'll have the default Debian browser installed. If you want a browser with more capabilities and plenty of add-ons (think ad-block and flash-block), then you'll be looking at Firefox.
Sometime ago there was a dispute between Mozilla and Debian over trade mark infringement, which resulted in Debian removing Firefox from their servers and replacing it with Iceweasel.
Iceweasel tends to be several releases behind Mozilla's current Firefox offering. So if you want the latest and greatest iteration of Firefox, you have to download and install it yourself.
Here's a quick run through how to do it.
Download Firefox 14
Go to http://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/new/
As root (superuser) do the following.
Unzip the downloaded tar zipped file.
tar xjf firefox-14.0.tar.bz2
Move the newly created Firefox directory to /opt
mv firefox /opt/firefox-14
Create a symbolic link to launch Firefox
ln -s /opt/firefox14/firefox /usr/bin/firefox
Enjoy fast surfing with thousands of add-ons.
