    Anyone enjoying watching the one planet thingy currently on the 4k iplayer ?

    Having received notification of postings on here I decided to look at them again. At 30gb's a time it would be easy to fill up my hard drives. I have many other 4k films (1917 recently which is 66gb) so I will watch them one by one. It takes about one and a half hours to download an episode and...

    Even though I have a 5.1 system I use a sound bar most of the time. I can't be bothered to fire up 5 channels of amplifier and a sub except for a special film. I was just listing what the 30gb file would offer. I have downloaded the file even though I streamed the originals from the BBC in 4k

    Just looked at my favourite sources of this series and they are 30gb for 2160p so be patient.

    My LG OLED loves it and the images are quite wonderful. I do however have 50mbs so I do get the full bandwidth. I understand that the BBC server negotiates a bandwidth with your IP address and supplies that. They do recommend 40mbs for best picture. I enjoy "how we did it" at the end almost...

    Disable OTA has woken us at 4am 2 nights running

    I do get a banner (on my LG B7) telling me that one of the Humax devices is available even though they are only set to record but no switching on etc or changing input. I do find it irritating but cannot prevent it.

    . I believe it is called HDMI-CEC and it may be why the TV turns on. Just a thought.

    Disable OTA has woken us at 4am 2 nights running

    That implies that whenever the Hummy is set to record it switches on the TV? I have 2 Freeview and 1 Freesat recorders (Humax) connected to a Smart TV none of which do that.

    Firmware hiccups?

    I have been very pleased with my receiver except for a recent problem. I turned the receiver on 2 days ago and discovered that all my recordings had dissappeared and the usb hard drive was not accessible. The receiver reported that the hard drive was 7% used but I was unable to set recording...

    schedule a recording manually

    Many thanks for the rapid reply. I have just set a recording (following your instructions) for the 20th February. I have justed read the manual from the Humax web page and there is no mention of manual option! Is there anywhere to look for any other undocumented options for the HB-1000S...

    schedule a recording manually

    Can one set a recording without using the Freetime listings. I subscribe to digiguide and have TV listings up to 3 weeks in advance. There are programmes which are on BBC4 which I want to record in HD and are only avalable to me via satellite. I have bought a HB-1000s + a usb hdd partly for...
