...or just take a look at "Black Hole's Trail Guide...." - it's what I put it there for.
This is pretty simple but, as usual, there are a few variables to take into account. The instructions below should work, but are not the only way to do the job.
On the Humax
If you connect to your local network via a wired connection:
- Open the main menu. Select Settings - System - Internet Setting - Configure LAN
- Set Configure IP to Manual
- Set IP Address to 192.168.0.101
- Set Gateway Address to 192.168.0.1
- Leave DNS Address unchanged
- Click Apply
This will work for most routers. Some routers may use addresses not in the range 192.168.0.n, in which case the IP Address and Gateway Address will need to be set according to the router's address range. Worry about this only if these instructions don't work!
This will give your Hummy the network address 192.168.0.101. If you have set up a wi-fi connection, you do not need to do the above. Provided the wi-fi connection is working correctly, the Hummy should have a default address of 192.168.0.100.
- Click left to return to the menu
- Select FTP Server. Set to On
- Exit the Menu.
On the PC
- Download FileZilla from here.
- Install it
- Run it
- Click File - Site Manager. You should see this dialog:
- Click New Site and enter a name, then complete the dialog as shown below. Remember to end the Host address with 100 or 101, depending on the type of network connection. The Password is 0000 (four zeros), unless you have changed the default password on the Humax, in which case it is whatever you changed it to.
- Click OK
You should be ready to go. Click the down arrow just below the File menu:
Select the connection you just set up. The connection should open, with the local system on the left and the Humax on the right.
To copy from the local disk to the Humax, first open the folder on the right that you want to copy to, then select the file on the left that you want to copy and either double click it, or right click and select Upload.
Similarly, to copy from the Humax to the local disk, first open the appropriate folder on the local disk, then select the required file on the Humax and either double click or use the context menu.
Remember that the .ts files on the Humax are encrypted. To use them on your PC, you must decrypt them first: there are several threads on this forum explaining how to do this.
