Thank you for your answers.

My USB HDD is EXT2 formatted.
So now I have to either:
1. convert HDD to EXT3 and manually modify /dtv/usb/log, editing the entry already created by the TV when I inserted the HDD, replacing ext3 to vfat; will this modification be permanent?
2. convert the HDD to EXT3 and use the modified usb_mount
3. keep EXT2 format and use the EXT2 module and the modified usb_mount

Thanks.

You should modify this any time you insert or remove any storage device.

3. You can also try the rewritten usb_mount utility.

I've attached ext2 kernel module.

Hey,

I've just mounted my EXT2 formatted HDD! Works very nice!
I used the re-written usb_mount and the ext2.ko module.

Thank you very much!

Hi,

well, I only could make some few tests, but it gave me segmentation fault... It seems to fail mounting ntfs since it forces VFAT for all partitions. Anyway, you can record to EXT3 partition without any modification. What you cannot do is to play the recorded media :).

Best regards,
Alejandro

Hi,

It failed when I tried to "patch" myself the usb_mount utility. I tried with the written-from-scratch tool (thanks!) and it works out of the box. Now, 'm looking for a non-dangerous way to automatically do this without accesing TV each time to execute the mount command. Is it possible to make a new simple "game" that makes "mount /mtd_rwarea/usb_mount /mtd_boot/usb_mount" without ssh access?

Best regards,
Alejandro

Hi guys,

I finally used telnet.so and telnet.sh from Thumbnails extension (I didn't change icon yet) to perform the mount /mtd_rwarea/usb_mount/ /mtd_boot/usb_mount from Content Library. All you have to do is to load the extension and re-insert your drive with ext3 partitions. They should be visible from Media Player then.

I will investigate if it is possible to remount drives without need of physically unplug them from the TV.

Regards!
Alejandro
