It doesn't fit under "Announcements", "Introductions", "Site/Forum Issues", or "The Hummy Arms" either, so proposing it shouldn't be on the main listing sounds like sour grapes. The alternative is a major reorganisation of the whole forum.
Given that forum search tools tend to be pretty useless for finding older information, gathering any related info into a dedicated thread would generally be helpful. So I'm for having separate sections for this, and other subjects.
How about creating some new sub directories under Humax Set Top boxes to tidy it up?
Humax Set Top boxes
-Other Humax/Non UK
I think a new directory for Audio/Video File Manipulation is a good idea, as its not technically a subject that should be limited to one specific box's forum - it can relate to quite a few if not all of them.
