Sadly, the next flagship Freeview models are Youview boxes.
I do think Humax missed a few tricks here, though. I guess their programmers think the Cfw is in competition. They should have embraced it and its creators. After all, their f/w was based on GNU code, so what do they expect?
In a similar way, when Apple got its iPod software dreadfully wrong in the early days, and coders produced a better f/w, they got locked out by Apple in the next release. It's more about pleasing the manufacturer than pleasing the customers.
