So I have been NBN ready for over 2 months. I never received any letter advising disconnection although my neighbour did...so I'm on cable and now guess I will be on for at least another 6 to 9 months based on the NBN Co HFC remediation that supposedly now needs to happen.
I am on the $90 pm (no contract) bundle with Fetch and home phone and speed pack.
My Fetch box died a month or so ago following a software/fw update....no amount of reseting soft or hard gets it to boot correctly. So I may as well get them to replace it...but before I do that is there any way I can get the recordings off...happy to pull the hd and connect to PC but not sure of the file formats...just realised this has turned into a Fetch question...oh well...
So anyone know or do I just lose my recordings...I do feel there has always been issues with the major software/fw updates...i have had to soft reset on several previous occassions just to get the latest OS installed, but this time nothing works.
The Fetch is rigged to not allow any recordings to be taken off. PVRs are great devices but unlike VCRs, a major drawback is that if the device goes you often lose all your recordings. In general Optus only take 1-2 days to deliver a replacement so I'd get that started today and you will probablybe sorted for the weekend.
