I have just purchased a new Humax tv recorder (FOX T2), it has a USB
port which can be used to connect to a LAN and router for tv internet
use, with things like iplayer (bbc) etc. I am using a wifi usb dongle.
I noticed that the first file system the User's Manual lists
compatibility for, in an external hard drive is ext3, which I thought
I continued thumbing through to the appendices, and suddenly saw lots
of free software stuff.
'...... The licences for most software are designed to take away your
freedom to share and change it. By contrast, the GNU General Public
Licence is intended to guarantee your freedom to .....'
The hardcopy User's Manual has 105 pages and page 98 onwards is Open
Source Software Notice - GPL softwae Linux, busybox, avinfo
LGPL uClibc, libexif, id3lib
and an appendix with over 6 pages of GPL and LGPL licences shown.
It took me a little while to check I was not dreaming.
