    farewell hummy

    I liked the pi also but went for total convience with a WDTV Live. If anyone wants the HDR they can have it for £50 + £10 postage. I have a HD that i'll hold onto incase I get nostalgic!

    farewell hummy

    Moved house so decided to get the Virgin Media tivo after having various humax devices for about 6 or 7 years. I'll miss the handyness of the HDR FOX T2 but mine was struggling with hdmi issues recently with my TV and theres no budget / desire for a new TV. I bought the T2 so i could have a...

    Connected to a different TV today (forgot to try and replicate the issue as they only had a shite aerial) Brought it home and reconnected - same issue was replicated instantly. working on getting a scart.

    New hdmi 1.4 cable didnt make a difference Philips had a fairly useless reply: I've double checked the specifications of your TV - it seems that HDCP issue occurs. Every 8-10 minutes new protocol code is generated to connect both devices - that code needs to match - unfortunately in your...

    Thanks BH.. i'll have a think if im prepared to drop the £ on it. We are hoping moving house in a month and i might just get a Virgin Media Tivo and come up with a different solution for other media. I've just finished some downgrades, TV on 2.20 and Humax on 1.02.07 and same error. So to be...

    Yes tried that Tony. Chris you are on to something. i do recall flashing the TV firmware sometime in the last year on a whim. So I could have went from 2.2? to 2.25 with that HDMI 'fix' and then 2.26 recently to try and fix. You could well be right. Ive got TPM62E_2.20 from some old driver...

    Chris its on HDR_FOX_T2_1.02.28 at the moment, still happening. Not sure how far to rollback, i cant identify exactly when it started, certainly since Christmas. I'll maybe try HDR_FOX_T2_1.02.07? TV is http://www.p4c.philips.com/cgi-bin/dcbint/cpindex.pl?slg=en&scy=gb&ctn=32PFL5406H/12 and...

    So what exactly does this do? Not sure if I want to throw more money at this issue, part of me is tempted just to ditch the humax :(

    [CFW 3.00] Customised Firmware version 3.00 released.

    Noticed this yesterday when installing on a factory reset humax. I didn't mention it as I assumed it was just my humax as it currently giving me grief on a different issue. Removing the wifi dongle allows it to boot ok.

    Just to update, Manual HDMI switcher does not resolve the issue. Its getting beyond a joke. By kid turned the TV off tonight and it took about 2 hours of powering off / on / mains power down / hit & hope. Fed Up. Need a button to handshake or something. Ive ordered a 3rd hdmi cable to be...
