About the TechniSat HDFS Freesat HD Digital Box

The HDFS Satellite HD Digital Receiver with freesat has been designed for the reception of both Standard Definition (SD) and High Definition (HD) programming. The freesat specification offers a fully featured Electronic Programme Guide (EPG), interactive ‘Red Button’ services using MHEG-5 and HD programmes from ITV HD.

The HDFS allows multimedia playback of movies, music and pictures from external USB devices, memory cards and Compact Flash or via a networked PC using the Ethernet port. The network connectivity can be extended further with the addition of the TechniSat USB-WLAN Adaptor to provide a wireless solution.

In addition to freesat mode, the HDFS has a TechniSat mode which offers the extended features and functions expected of a TechniSat receiver, such as multi-satellite reception using DiSEqC and motor control.

    I have tried for hours nw to get my HDFS to see my computer via the WLAN adapter, but no joy. The instuctions are very basic, no troublshooting guide….
    Have set up a shared folder, don’t know what else to do.
    I think the link is there as I am getting no line through the double arrows. And I have BBC Iplayer now, which I did not have before.

    You won’t see anything on the network if you are using Win 7 – it’s been broken since the box was released and never fixed despite numerous requests to do so by users.

  2. I have also lost the radio channels (but I have them on my Sky receiver so it is not the dish). I called Technisat and they told me to update the software with version 2.41.36.8 which is available on their website. When I visited the website the version available is 2.41.36.7 (which is already installed on the HDFS). I called them back and they said they did not understand why the latest software had not been uploaded to their site and to “try again next week and have a good weekend”. So we just have to wait. This is no way to deal with problems or customers.

    Let’s see what happens “next week”

  4. Hmm, seems the epg/radio channel problem is still here.
    I’ve left my box on for 4+ hours today and still now update beyond today.

  5. The failure to populate the EPG properly and the loss of radio stations are still problems on my HDFS. It is running software version 2.41.36.7 which is the one currently available on the Technisat web site. Posts 102 and 103 above refer to a later version 2.41.36.8. Is it known if this fixes either of these problems?
    Technisat’s email help responses have failed to mention this update, or anything else in the least helpful.

  6. Hello Chris,

    The loss of radio channels is a bug on the HDFS when you switch from Freesat to Technisat mode.

    The “solution” is to reset to factory settings and the radio channels are restored…

    However I have 2.41.36.7 and I can’t find the new firmware either…

    Can you email me it please admin?

    Thanks

    Dan

  7. Hello Admin
    I have a Technisat HDFS. The 2.41.36.8-1666b software doesn’t appear to be anywhere anymore on the Technisat site. If you have it could you email it to me so I can update my box. Thanks a lot!

  8. My hdfs will will not find 119 (ITV HD) with a London post code, however it will find other variants using Belfast or Manchester codes.

    Anyone else got this issue?

  9. I am having problems with timed recordings on my USB stick (an Adata C906). The USB stick is new, it formats with no problems on Windows 7 as NTFS and Linux as ext3. Quite often it will not record programs, or attempting a new recording will corrupt the whole stick so it has to be reformatted by the HDFS. Any suggestions?
