I manage well on 2.5Mbps, but I wouldn't want to risk any less.
However, being as the HDR (and - I am informed - the HD-FOX running in HDR Mode) buffers the iPlayer stream to a file, I expect it would be possible to start the programme and then pause it, wait for the buffer to fill up and then either play it "live" or save it off to play another time.
Can anyone verify that?
Does anyone happen to know the bandwidth required by the Humax portal to stream live, non-HD iPlayer? I'm moving to an area with quoted speeds of 0.5Mbps and would like to know whether my HDR-FOX T2 will still work as I'm used to!
This looks as if it ONLY works with the custom firmware, and not with the 'out of the box' firmware. Is that correct?
Yes that's correct - the file is presumably always saved on the box even with the std firmware, but the mods allow access to it either directly via Telnet if you know those commands or more conveniently (for people like me especially) via the Web Interface.This looks as if it ONLY works with the custom firmware, and not with the 'out of the box' firmware.
