Hola peeps, I am working through the woosh build. I'm up to the bit where it asks about intialise the hard disk. The hard disk was on the box prior this recent flash. Will it need formatting again as the box has been flashed. Cheers

Yes it will but post in the wooshbiuld infinity support section for help is the best thing to do (y)(y)

Good morning, so I am successfully using the Woosh build which I love by the way. I am using a external hdd which I have always used. I successfully manage to record programmes I wish to watch but when it comes to play back the programme the box goes into reboot. Once it has rebooted then if I press play again then it plays no problem, although if I try to fast forward or rewind then it may reboot again. I attach the message that pops up. Do I need to follow what the pic says or is it just a simple fix? Thanks

Not sure bud. I have always used it with ipab with no issues. I have tried initialising it and the box finds the device which I select and it says box has been initialised. There is no prompt offering what to format it as.

Does hdd have its own power supply as in plugged into 13amp socket.
Check in mount manager it should list your usb devices

No the device does not have it's own power supply. It is a Samsung m3 portable. External 1000.204 gb. There is an option to convert ext 3 filesystem to ext 4...should I press this?

Yes its not setup for recording do it and retry.
I only use powered externally if using hdd as usb only might crash box.

Does it now show as like above picture?
Try recording a newer item and see if that plays ok.
Other possibility usb port cant handle drive? might need a usb powered hub to work.

Hi, I'm sorted I think. Just follow the instructions in this link, seems to have worked for me. The programmes I recorded before doing this still cause the reboot but what i recorded today work fine...
