  1. Magic Pvr Arrived Today

    Dealspace is still on Ebay, but apart from that I have no idea. http://stores.ebay.c...space-Australia

    Deal Extreme have a similar power supply with the 5.5 x 2.1mm plug. Slightly more expensive at $9.20. They have the same free shipping as the ebay one. http://dx.com/p/replacement-power-supply-ac-dc-adapter-for-router-more-12v-4a-1m-124157

    KTFaith, could try upgrading the firmware: http://www.magictv.com/au/support.html to 6.04AU.

    Delphi, was it a brand new unit or a reconditioned one when you bought it?
  6. Magic Pvr Arrived Today

    Very similar to the one in the link below, just need to check plug size: 5.5 x 2.1mm at Jaycar. http://dx.com/p/repl...2v-4a-1m-124157

    Just out of interest, is there some sort of scheduled automatic disk defragmenting of the internal drive, or is this not really needed, as long as you empty the trash?

    Seems ok now: http://www.magictv.com/au/index.html http://www.magictv.com/au/downloads/MTV4000PVR-Owners-Guide-v1.0.pdf http://www.magictv.com/au/downloads/MTV-AU-Owners-Guide-v1.0.pdf

    With the old 5.10 patch the startup mode did make a difference for me and I suspect some others. When I used the All Off standby mode the system settings were not being saved, and this meant all settings including the channel scan needed inputting again everytime the PVR was powered up. Does not matter now as the new 5.10c seemes to have fixed that bug for me

    Very nice. The new MTV4000 firmware update has worked flawlessly for me so far and does not lose system settings when in All Off standby mode Thanks for the firmware.

    Is it possible that because you used Fast Startup to begin with, the system settings were saved and when you changed to All Off the system settings were left over from your previous Fast Startup setting? Bit like the To Do List being saved. I went straight to All Off and have always used this setting. Maybe settings are not being saved in this mode correctly? I might try going to 5.10 again, but use Fast Startup first, then go to All Off, to see if that works. Only problem might be if I change a system setting in the All Off mode, will it actually save that setting or keep the old save from Fast Startup? RE: advantage of using All Off -> Not really an advantage, more that I know that if there is a power failure, the PVR system settings will still be there and not have reset everytime it loses power and no recorded shows. I live in a regional area and get the odd electricity blackout.

    Installed 5.10, found I had the all off standby problem, did factory reset, did 5.10 setup again to see if factory reset fixed it, lost system settings again on power down. Installed 5.08 without doing another factory reset and seems to be working.One thing I did notice, with 5.10, after I did the first setup (before factory reset), powered down, lost system settings and put the settings back in again, it still had all the "To Do List" settings saved, all the TV programs to be recorded were still there from the previous 5.10 setup.

    Just confirming this part happened to me as well. 5.10 firmware loses all its settings when in all off power saving mode. Reverted back to 5.08, no problem.

    I think of those threads as info commercials. I don't have a problem with them, getting some info and usually a review, as long as you know the poster sells the units and benefits from these info threads. Personally, I would not base my purchase on one source of information.IMO video quality comes before features. No use having all the features in the world packed into a unit, if it has poor/average quality video. One of the reasons I bought the Magic.
