cHarOn you old bugger, you've created a thread for the NTD37-HD already? But it's not available!!!

Bono2007, what are you talking about? The NTD36-HD only plays WMV HD, not HD DVD files. This device doesn't support H.264 or AVC, unfortunately, unless it's MPEG-2 HD.

next month or in 2 months it will be avaible ;-)

So, cHarOn, you have 2 months or so to help your poor friends here, in the forum, hehe

Do you think that bloody Novatron will release a very final firmware for the NTD36-HD following your release?

I miss DViCO's support on my old TViX... they replied to each mail of mine... Ah...

The FTP link is alive and it points to a video 1280x720 MPEG-2 (HD) which I am currently downloading...

hi guys, and thanks a lot for a splendid forum.

i downloaded the patched firmware from hdd-player.de (thanks guys!), I installed it and everything looks fine.

I realize, that I have to format the disk in order to take full advantage of the new firmware.

However, I seem to have a few problems that most likely occur because I misunderstand a few things;

1. i haven't re-formatted my drive yet - but I should be able to ftp (with f.ex. total commander using the IP as host and ftp/ftp as credentials). This doesnt really work.

2. when I use f.ex. Advanced LAN scanner, I can't see the IAMM on the network (the LAN scanner scans the full 192.168.1.0-255, and shows all the other machines or nodes on the network) - at the same time I can connect with the NDAS, so the IAMM is clearly online (via wireless)

There was a script that came along with the patch. Is this script to be placed anywhere on the IAMM so that it is read at boot time? If yes, where and how do I put it there?

Any help or tips much appreciated - step-by-step wouldn't hurt

love, and thanks for a splendid job ! cant wait to get it working,

Frederik

Hello Frederik, I think we must wait for cHarOn's response, but I can attempt to reply the first ones, although not having installed the firmware myself.

1. If you leave the drive formatted to NTFS, you should be able to *read only* from the drive. Unless this firmware abandons all NTFS support, which I don't think so. So you can't connect to the IAMM or you can't read/write? FTP is not a verb so I can't ftp means nothing important!

2. On previous firmwares, the IAMM never ever showed on the network. Even when I put DHCP on the IAMM, on the router the name is blank. This means that there is no network device ID or name for the IAMM, so don't try to find it in "Network Neighborhood". If you ping it, does it respond? That's essential. Also, maybe you should disable the NDAS connection first, perhaps the driver locks or does something to FTP or LAN scanning.

3. No idea about the script. cHarOn can respond...

1. when you look again to hdd-player.de where you download the firmware there as the end of the download thread an FAQ in english, it is better when you take root/hdd to login! Did you enable an static ip to your iamm, you can try the network also in the webbrowser with http://(IP IAMM) when there shows something then ftp must work to. ext3 is an option you dont need to take ext3 but only with ext3 you can upload to your IAMM

2. You cant find your IAMM in Networkplaces but you can ping your iamm

3. I wrote into the FAQ that you must put it in the root of your internal HDD or you can put it on an USB Device but it must be it the upperst place of your device.

Hi everyone !
Thanks for your works !!
Iinstalled the las firmware "ntd36hd-1-1-1-2-157ftp" on my cibox
It works fine !!
I just have a question :
i m using ftp and have acces to the root of the cibox
Is it possible to modify the files to "write acces in the directory "/usr/curacao/gui/"
I would like to change some of icons and some text !
i can see the icons and file text but cant replace them !
another question !
How to make my own firmware ? mean compile a ".pkg" file and use it to change this files as a firmware will do ??
Thanks !!!!
post #257 of 491
i think on page 3 or 4 in this thread there is an description how you can build the firmware and no you cant change the bitmaps because this files are in the readonly rom.

cHarOn
post #258 of 491
thanks for your response !
puting a new firmware is it the only way to change the bitmaps ???
Thanks

Hi Guys,

Thanks for the quick reply.

I tried to ping it, but theres no response. I guess i have a problem with my network. Sorry about the bother.

I set it up with a static IP, and it connects ok to the network and can see shared folders on my other machines. I could see it using the (uh!) NDAS software, which I deinstalled incase it blocked anything.

I was using a special software for scanning the LAN, i wasn't referring to Network Neighborhood. But anyway, thanks for the tips.

As I said, i guess its something with my network, even though it is strange i could "NDAS" it but not FTP it

If ill find a fix I'll post it i case anybody's having the same problem. Any suggestions from you guys much appreciated

Best regards,
Frederik

Hi guys,

Just debugging, still can't get the FTP to work with the new firmware

Apart from installing the new firmware, there are no other steps I should follow in order for the FTP to work on the Iamm, correct?



Best regards,
Frederik
post #263 of 491
do you have an router where port 21 is locked?!?! with firewall? did you try to open the iamm in your browser?!?!?! http://ip iamm/

cHarOn
post #264 of 491
hi charon,

thanks for the reply,

yeah, iv'e had no luck with any of theres or a combination of:

ping
static ip
dhcp
wireless
cable
webbrowser
scanning the lan with Lan Scanner (not network neighbourhood)

i can easly ftp and i haven't closed any ports in the firewall. i was able to see the unit before i uninstalled the dreadfull ndas software using the ndas interface, but no luck with ftp.

the thing is, after installing the firmware, i don't have to do anything else in order to boot the ftp server on the iamm, correct? cause I havent done anything apart from installing the firmware, putting the script in the main folder and restarting the damn thing. i can see you names and the new firmware info, so the firmware is installed.

i am quite sure it's a brain dead error that I am doing that has nothing to do with the firmware itself, but rather som silly error i have in my setup

but if you could confirm that it should work out of the box, all things considered, when the new firmware is installed, i'd be delighted.

best regards,
Frederik
post #265 of 491
hmmm no idea anymore?!?!?!?!?! but as you said you dont need todo anything that the ftp starts on the iamm it is already started when you boot your iamm.

New firmware is out 1.1.159 from Novatron mine will follow soon, it is official on the new devices which come to hdd-player.de but it isnt on there website?!?! I dont understand why they dont release it there, if you wanna try it because we have no changelog you can download it at hdd-player.de in the downloadsection in the forum.

cHarOn thanks for the update. You are right, Novatron didn't update their site. Perhaps they want to test it internally? Who knows. But thanks for the great work you've done. And don't forget your Greek friends
post #268 of 491
lol no it isn´t for internal testing because all devices what the admin gets from novatron has now the firmware 1.1.159 onboard so it must be official!! i dont understand why they dont post it on the homepage, but please can you try this firmware if this brings the greek subtitles to the right thing ;-).
AND NO I DONT FORGET THE GREEK FRIENDS HAHAHAHAHA

cHarOn, thanks for your nice comments! I just registered so that I can access the downloads. Are you sure it's the final official v159 firmware as the one that Novatron will post on their site?

But I can't seem to find this download, my German is very poor, it isn't on the "Downloads nur für registrierte Benutzer" folder. Can you please direct us to the right link/thread of the forum? Danke schoen!

I will try to see if it plays Greek subtitles, do you know if there was a change from Novatron?
post #270 of 491
hehe Downloads nur für registrierte Benutzer is the wrong i give you an direct link

http://www.hdd-player.de/phpBB2/index.php?topic=223.0

but you must be registered

and yes it must be an final because all new devices from novatron which comes to germany hdd-player are already with 1.1.159 installed
