Hi, thanks for your prompt reply I can see the humax on the Midea player and it is in the listing of the network listing.Your computer needs to be running a DLNA server program before the Humax will see any files on it, a basic DLNA server is built into Windows Media player, look in Library >> Media Sharing and see if the Humax is listed
prpr's comment was because (before edit) post 2 got the acronym muddled.
HomeHub3 does not allow DLNA?? This seems unlikely as it is a common thing for people to want to do (particularly BT customers who probably have little technical knowledge and just expect their smart TVs etc to "just work"). If it's really true, you have a cause for complaint (and so would many other BT users). What does the BT users forum say about it?
Bear in mind you are not expecting DLNA to work on the outside connection to the Internet, only within the home network.
I have been on the BT website forum and it would seem from what I have read there that BT don't won't to answer the questions. I know it's early days yet but after posting on the same forum and emailing BT direct and not getting a reply I am beginning to believe they don't care, I'm paying considerably more for an inferior service.
Is the Netgear an ADSL modem/router? If so plug it in and try it. Depending on its actual capability you might not get your maximum data rate. If the Netgear does not work satisfactorily it would still be possible (I think) to use the HomeHub as the modem and the Netgear as the router, by disabling the relevant functions on each.
