anybody found a wi fi dongle that will work with a 2000T not Humax let me know what works I only want it for upgrades dont use it for catch up TV so I dont see the point in buying the specified Humax one just for software upgrades.
thanks

Software updates (assuming any are actually broadcast) are delivered Over the Air (OTA) so you don't need an Internet connection for that purpose.

yes but I've had Many humax boxes and firmware fixes updates are done online but thanks
Even when done on-line, the custom for HD/HDR-FOX (and presumably 1800/2000T) is that the firmware update is released as a downloadable zip file, which you then unzip to a UPD and boot the Humax with it in the USB socket. We are not aware of any updates being released for 1800/2000T yet, so I suppose it is possible they will break the mould - but in any case the updates get distributed through OTA.

If you do want to procure a dongle just in case, see here: http://hummy.tv/forum/threads/hdr-fox-t2-wireless-dongle.127/page-16#post-70491

I would be interested to know which Humax boxes that you have had, which have had firmware updates online? I do not know of any that have been updated this way.
