I have a recorder box bought from ART4HD on ebay that looks like the ME-1000. It has RTD1262PA as the main chip. The unit has read only NTFS 750Gb sata. NMAP shows the Telnet port 23 is open but it i can't connect with putty error remote system disconnects immediately. Any suggestions on how to regain telnet support. Root is in flash can I do a pivot to linux on the internal HDD?
wheller, How do you know that the NTFS drive is read only. It is a recorder device.
Try telnet instead of putty. My device does not connect to putty but telnet works. I have a HD Media player which came without a HDD. It has space for a Sata HDD. I installed a 500GB HDD.
I booted a CD on the notebook and had already tried telnet and got the same respone an immediate logout. I can ping the unit and play video over the network from my windows vista notebook so I know that the network connection is working i feel that it is something to do with permissions on the media recorder but without telnet I can not look at the config info in /etc to fix it. I have used the GUI to reset to factory settings but that didn't help either. I can record to a FAT formated USB drive so that part of the app is working as well.
I had used the procedure above on a ScreenPlay Pro to enable telnet and it worked fine. You need to install the utility on MS Windows (later uninstall it) to use Linux OS to read the ext2 partition of your device HDD.
I am sure you can do it.
Unfortunatly the kernel is in flash not on the Hard disk so I can't see it from the USB port but I will make other use of the ext driver so it will come in handy anyway. I am a hardware designer so if anyone has a RTD1262 datasheet I can probably connect the serial port up and get in that way. The unit still plays back video and works as a USB drive with windows I would just like to get it's drive available over the network so I can transfer files from my PC to it without physically connecting it to the USB port of the PC.
