So, I've tried all that and still no joy.On my first install it did not initially work either and still wasn't working a couple of days later.
What I did that finally got that initial install working was:
First - Reset cookie data via the hidden menu - https://wiki.hummy.tv/wiki/Hidden_Settings_Menu, - but no joy
Second - reboot as per Black Holes suggestion, - but no joy
Third - Switch to standby and then switch power off for about a minute while I went to do something else, - bingo.
/var/lib/humaxtv/browser/cookies4.datsuggests that the iPlayer code may be stashing the responses (the www.bbc.co.uk cookie displayed by the linked tool needs decoding with the JS
decodeURIComponent()function). I did have to claim to be over 16.
Nothing unusual there - iplhack seems to be restoring normal functionality!I was able to... access iPlayer via the Humax Portal this afternoon on one of my HD-Foxes, at the third attempt; on the first try, the set-top program (in this case acting as a web browser) crashed; on the second I got no further than the "loading" screen.
My philosophy is "let sleeping dogs lie" or "if it ain't broke, don't fix it!" So until I-Player was broke it didn't need fixing but when it did, I was sure to get help here.It might. 3.10 is very old, and could potentially not include hooks which iplhack relies on (directly or indirectly).
That's not really fair, and the migration out of beta into mainstream is very slow. Anyone who can benefit from running a beta package should do so, particularly after it's been released long enough to get forum comments if there are problems... and I don't think any have been raised for iplhack. Another data point is always welcome.A beta package doesn't give that impression.
What do you mean - a different solution from iplhack? No.Is a different work around being considered that keeps this a beta?
Did you have to install iplhack? You don't mention that here: but I believe it was already installed, and updating the FW doesn't change the installed packages.SUCCESS
I downloaded and installed the latest firmware (Humax Version: 1.03.12 (kernel HDR_CFW_3.13) ) as verified by the webif Diagnostics panel and started the TV Portal, loaded I-Player and it runs.
iplhack was already installed.Did you have to install iplhack? You don't mention that here: but I believe it was already installed, and updating the FW doesn't change the installed packages.
The Wiki doesn't indicate anything that might have affected the operation of iplhack between CFW 3.10 and 3.13, but if you only tried the iPlayer app once or twice failures might just have been its natural flakiness.
Most of the discussion from #91 on should really be in the CF forum, or possibly even the beta forum.
Absolutely not. As I have been saying so often, correlation may be indicative but it is certainly not "demonstrandum". The apparent correlation needs to be confirmed by many more examples (but there won't be many people running 3.10), or a plausible explanation found.
Search should find it whatever section of the forum it might have been in, but in any case we're only talking about the continuing discussion on a custom firmware theme. Keeping stuff where it is meant to be makes it easier to find!For me, I only found this thread through looking for iPlayer problem. If this information was moved elsewhere, would other "non-experts" like me, find it?
Good to confirm, thx.iplhack was already installed.
Presumably, you'd have found the earlier references, such as this. But this has become a bit of a franken-thread, including a lot of stuff that wouldn't be relevant to a stock FW hold-out, so I understand why you might not have done so.For me, I only found this thread through looking for iPlayer problem.

That's very interesting, though as BH says not necessarily conclusive. Maybe some root certificates were updated between 3.10 and 3.13 without mentioning it in the release notes. Or was your CF 3.10 version based on an OEM 1.02.xx FW, which doesn't work with the current iPlayer site? Though that would have failed for years, rather than just since September.With respect to CFW 3.10 against 3.13, multiple attempts to run iPlayer on 3.10 failed but it ran first time on 3.13. QED
