    HDR-FOX T2 in Sweden

    I've sort of let this slide, as I mostly use the online web "Play" services of the various providers these days. My trusty old Topfield box which is breaking down, is soon going to be replaced with an unspecified OEM box from my ISP when I get 100Mbit optical fibre, and I'm guessing it will be...

    HDR-FOX T2 in Sweden

    It seems there are minor differences between the machines - both are listed as handling 1080p, but according to users here in Sweden, the BXR-HD+ can only handle 1080p24-25 while the HDR-FOX T2 can handle 1080p50 - though with all the other similarities, I'm inclined to believe it's only...

    HDR-FOX T2 in Sweden

The main thing I'm interested in is having a box that is approved, so I can get support from the broadcaster if there is a problem with my subscription...

    HDR-FOX T2 in Sweden

    Being a technician by trade and blood, I am hardly going to rush into modifying anything without proper caution, but I also refuse to pay for intentionally nerfed devices unless I am able to un-nerf them myself. The ID from the screenshot is 80A0.7F00 I haven't actually bought the box yet, so...

    HDR-FOX T2 in Sweden

    Hi! I wanted to tell you that the HDR-FOX T2 is also sold in Sweden, under the name BXR-HD+ T2. However, the Swedish broadcaster has opted to force Humax to cripple the box severely. All internet/network-based functionality is gone (they claim the Ethernet port is a "service port"), as is the...
