    Wouldn't it be nice if Humax had this enlightened attitude!

    I wonder what would happen if we ran the Digital Stream's main executable on the Humax :mad:

    It may work with enough fiddling, the base hardware is identical. It might not interface with the tuners or display though!

    Their kernel might be worth a shot too - it's the same major version

    Yes indeed. Humax can certainly attribute some sales to the work of this community so it does make sense for a vendor to be supportive to some extent. I can also understand why one wouldn't want to get involved!

    I'm sure we are all very grateful you are so hands-on. It must feel like something of an albatros at times!

    I'm told that the Humax uses a different chipset for Dolby Digital decoding - Digital Stream went with the standard Broadcom 7405 (and had to suffer the Beeb changing their minds on HD audio after shipment) whereas Humax waited until the dust had settled and chose their options then.

    Some early testing suggests that it should be possible to get OS-level stuff working cross-platform ... though some things on the DS are in different places and will need to startup differently.
