Yes, XBMC adds a DNLA server to the PC.Can I stream the other way round- from xmbc down to the humax?
It is not necessary to decrypt if streamed by DLNA rather than played by network access. I didn't realise XBMC was able to cope with HiDef .TS at all - is it only by direct access, or does it work with DLNA as well?I can stream both standard and high definition recordings from my Humax to XBMC.
You will need to install the custom firmware to remove the protection flag from HD recordings and to decrypt both SD and HD recordings. You will also need to install the Samba package so that you can set up the Humax video folder as a source within XBMC (Add videos > Browse > Windows Network (SMB) > Humax > Media >My Videos).
Obviously, but that does not negate the facility. Streaming in either direction by DLNA is available regardless of custom firmware being installed.it's not much use unless your media files are in a format that the Humax will play.
That's good news, thanks. (For other readers: this is only possible for HiDef recordings if the Custom Firmware and the auto-unprotect optional package are installed.)tried it - HiDef files play fine in XBMC over DNLA.
The Humax does play some MKVs, It depends what is contained within it
