    Hi, I'm fairly new to FVP4000T and FVP5000T use having recently got hold of one each for personal use. I got the FVP4000T first and now use the FVP500T. Looking into playing the FVP4000T recordings on the FVP5000T, it seems I can do this over the wifi network - the FVP4000T files can be found and played on the FVP5000T.

    The question is, is there any way of transferring them so that I can empty the FVP4000T and give it to a relative? USB doesn't work, presumably because of different file types or encoding issues. Does anyone have any knowledge in this area? I will get rid of the FVP4000T when the programmes have been watched but transferring them would let me do it now.

    Are these HD recordings?

    What software version is the FVP4000T running? The file types should be the same. HD recordings won't be decrypted by copy to USB.

    The boxes can play each others file over your network because the dlna client and server is TCP-IP compliant. The sending box provides the decryption key to the receiving box. Guessing if you physically move recordings to a box that didn't make the recordings they will not play because the encryption key is unique to each box.

    Thanks for the reply. The recordings are HD.

    Much as I thought. Pity there isn't a nice little software routine to decrypt them. I'll have to be patient, as will my relative who's getting the FVP-4000T.

    Had the two boxes been HUMAX HDR-FOX T2's you could have done what you wanted to do. Very easily.

    Same goes for the HDR-2000T, I've managed well with those and the aid of an old Humax hdd - WD Green 320gb AV drive in a powered cradle. Copying through usb is dreadfully slow though, usually done overnight or longer.

    Could you confirm that the FVP-5000T will play HD content from the FVP-4000T? Will the FVP-4000T play HD content from the FVP-5000T (my guess is no)?

    Hi, coming back to Martin on this one. Both units have software version 1.03.51 which I think is the latest version.

    With both units on and the 5000T selected on the tv input, going into the Media section brings up the 4000T in the media list and the files on it are accessible and will play.

    Doing this the other way round, the Media section on the 4000T doesn't show the 5000T in the list so no access to the files.

    Question for anyone, how can I stop the yellow message which tells me I can't play through hdmi link because my tv doesn't support some feature or other? The 5000T and 4000T both play through hdmi without problems, just the annoying message which disappears after a few seconds.

    I think that you mean DTCP-IP (Digital Transmission Content Protection). Everything that connects to the internet is probably TCP-IP compliant!

    Thanks; that confirms some previous reports. I suspect if you make an SD recording on the 5000T that will show up and be playable.
