    Will the FOX-T2 play the new "internet" freeview channels? It says any box with MHEG capability will work, Channel 117 for instance.

    No, and Humax have no plans to release an update to support them. In fact they cause problems with the Humax software if you try and tune into them.

    Why? Were you promised IPTV when you bought it?

    You could argue that the box is meant to support the offerings of freeview.
    But the argument on humax's side is that it does as long as its how it was in 2010/2011.
    Now however, freeview has changed the spec a little..

    Is there any post from Humax saying they will not ?

    I know they'll probably not but the site did say this, although that's not IPTV is it

    Internet TV Portal (Sky Player, Catch Up TV, Internet Radio and etc are available) future upgrade*
    * Not available at launch, in development.

    Nope, thats just about the portal.. which is now launched. Sky Player is still AWOL, but we have ways around that ;)

    Not directly but it was supposed to support MHEG5 which is all that is needed I believe.

    I does support MHEG5.. its just a newer version of it that allows IPTV to work.
