This software is an MS Windows console application to control all aspects of the Humax PVR9200T PVR device attached to a host PC via a USB interface. It is designed to replicate the functions of the existing Humax Media eLinker V2.1 software and to add a few extra functions that users may find useful.
This primary focus of this software is to provide for more reliable video file transfers via USB from the Humax to a Host PC.

HumaxGui is a alternative to the Humax Media ELinker supplied with the Humax 9200t PVR. The application is based on the Humax Media Controller V1.02 source code supplied by Andy Chappell. The application allows the user to transfer images and mp3 to/from the pvr and transfer video files from the pvr. Also available are rename and delete files for both the device and host, as well as device information.

This program is an alternative to HummyReadFiles and HDC. Its main function is to provide a means to transfer the files from an old hard disk to a new disk when upgrading. It can also be used to backup files to/from a host computer (if say a reformat becomes necessary). It does not perform defragmentation as such, but if you copy all the files onto a host drive, reformat, then copy all the files back, the drive will then be defragmented. The disadvantage is that it is very much command line driven.
It can operate in one of three modes:
1. Copy files to/from the Humax disk onto the host computer.
2. If two Humax disks are connected to the host computer it can transfer the files directly from one to the other.
3. Recovery mode – used if the record list is missing/corrupt – list and retrieve recordings
* List recordings
* Copy recordings to the host computer
* Copy previously saved recordings back from the host to the Humax disk
* Copy recordings between two 9200T formatted disks
* Read the additional information about a programme
* Delete a programme
* Backup all programmes
* Recovery mode – list and retrieve recordings if the record list is missing/corrupt
When copying a recording from the Humax disk it will create the .ts file and three other files (.hre, .elu & .epg). These files contain all the information about the recording from the Humax disk. In order for the Humax to be able to play back the ts file when it is written to a new disk, some of these files must be present. They are as follows:
* .hre: Record list entry – this contains PID information about the ts file and must be present.
* .elu: This contains timing information. If it is missing the timebar may be incorrect and the (front panel) elapsed time indicator may run at the wrong speed.
* .epg: Additional information about the programme. This is not always present.
Therefore it is not possible to copy a .ts file onto the Humax disk without its associated .hre file.
It is now possible (using the utility ts2hrw in version 1.09) to create hre files using just the ts files (with some dummy information). See here for some details of the hre file format.
Do not allow Windows to “Initialise” the disk in disk/device manager. The disk should not appear under “My Computer”. If this is done accidentally use the “-p” option to HumaxCheck to fix the partition table.
The usual disclaimers and copyright applies, the author, poster, and host sites of this program hold no responsibility what so ever. Since this program is able to write to the 9200T hard disk there is a slim possibility that some as yet unforeseen form of corruption could cause the program to make the disk unreadable – use it very much at your own risk.

HummyReadFiles is a GUI program for transferring recordings from a modified 9200t or a drive removed from one. The main purpose of HummyReadFiles is to provide a fast method of transfer to a PC for editing to a DVD or Network Server. It will search for a valid hummy drive format and list the files, which can then be selected by means of the check boxes. The destination folder can also be changed if required. For those who are put off by command line tools (e.g. humaxrw) it is less intimidating, though it still requires the USB-IDE modification or removal of the drive.
It has some limitations if you have upgraded your Hummy to a bigger drive and have exceeded 256 recordings in that it indexes those extra files incorrectly (even if you reduce the numer to below 256). Also in common with the Humax Media Elinker it does not allow you to transfer back to the Hummy.
