    Volume a little low

    Hi Chaps I recently bought a sound bar that plugs into a HDMI port on my TV which sounds great. the only issue I'm having is that when I change to different HDMI inputs the volume has to be adjusted on the TV. Basically it's too quiet an output from the Humax. I have maxed out the volume on the...

    Broadlink RM pro 2 remote control

    Well I'm fairly sure that if anyone wants to listen to the conversations that the wife and I have then good luck to 'em. Not the most informative or riveting chats I'm afraid.

    Broadlink RM pro 2 remote control

    Just as a follow up, I received the Broadlink RM pro and have successfully set it up to turn on and off the HDR fox T2. I also set up a routine so that Alexa will turn on the Hummy, TV and room light when I issue the appropriate voice command. Just for good measure I also have the Broadlink...

    Broadlink RM pro 2 remote control

    Was just thinking of using the Broadlink to turn on the Humax in response to a command issued to an Alexa device, and at the same time turn on the TV and maybe the room lamp using a routine. I never thought of using it for more than basic command like change channel, off/on etc. I guess it would...

    Looks like my Hummy is pooped

    The Hummy had been working perfectly well until the fault occured. Save the odd green screen issue which is usually fixed with a power off from the remote and a few minutes wait. On rare occasions a power cycle would be required to clear a persistent green screen. But this has occured since...

    Looks like my Hummy is pooped

    Well, tried re-flashing with latest version and problem still exists. Then tried the system flush image and guess what? That's fixed it 😁 Very grateful to you guys on here. Mistakenly I was convinced it was a hardware problem. You chaps are diamond geezers. Made my day.

    Looks like my Hummy is pooped

    Well after many years of great service my wonderful HDR Fox T2 has finally stopped working. Switched it on this morning to be greeted by the usual Humax splash screen on the TV but it will not progress past that. The display shows Cust Fw 3.13 but again it will not progress. Anticipating this...

    Plans for new drive purchased as spare

    Just received a new Seagate 2Tb drive and would like to prepare it for use. I have a spare Humax box with a 500Mb drive and will put it in there to get it formatted. Can I then use it to copy files from my original box via a sata to usb caddy as a back up and when necessary fit it straight in my...

    Hi folks, just to be clear, if a 4gb drive is fitted can the Humax access the whole 4gb for recording purposes? Thanks

    Replace 500Gb drive with 1Tb

    Quick question about converting a 500gb box to 1gb. Knowing that my 1Gb box is getting on a bit I managed to purchase a second hand T2 with a 500gb hard disk. If and when my original box gives up the ghost I would like to just swap the 1Tb drive into the 500gb newer unit. Is this possible...
