Try switching to a SCART connection and removing the HDMI (temporarily) to eliminate CEC.
Two postings and you conclude not an isolated issue. Have you tried covering the front of the unit with say a piece of cardboard ? I'm with the other posters, it's most likely a rogue source of IR. It's most definitely not a common issue. Have you got other Humax kit like , Foxsat-hdr, HDR FOX T2, HD FOX T2 or HDR 1000/1010S boxes ?
It's definitely worth trying the suggestion in #41, the CEC control system built into HDMI goes by lots of other names depending on Manufacturer Anynet, Smart-Link etc. use CEC controlOnly thing I can think of at the moment is that the Anynet system (controls surround sound systems etc through the Tv) on my Samsung TV may be the problem.
Strange issue this one!
But watever it is doesnt seem to be rectified by getting a replacement box! This problem seems extremely rare so the likelihood of two people getting two faulty boxes in a row each is extremely unlikely - unless the issue effects them all!
It seems probable that all hdr fox t2's would exhibit the same issue with your exact setup. So it would suggest an incapability with something else its hooked up to or it's caused by something in the environment its in.
So, what is your setup?
-surround sound yes/no
-surround sound hdmi or optical out
-hummy in cabinet yes/no
-hdmi cable type (1.2, 1.3 etc)
-anything else in close proximity to hummy

Not sure of the model but it's a Samsung TV. Surround sound yes. Surround is via the HDMI at the moment, so I'll try the optical out as an alternative. Not sure what HDMI cable type I have. There's a wireless router close by to the box. Will try switching that off also. Finally, I'll also try the scart set up to see if I get the same problem with that. Will keep you posted...
I have been having the same problem with quite a new box ('RE' version with new tuner). Unfortunately I don't have the receipt and Humax want £110 to 'exchange' it, so I decided to have a look at it myself. The fault (in my case) is in the electronics of the front panel. I swapped the panel with one from another HDR (ca. 3 years old) and this fixed the problem, but the fault is now manifesting in the older box. I tried removing the on/ off switch and the volume/ channel buttons from the panel (buttons only) but this has no effect. Neither does covering the IR receiver. As it is a relatively easy component to replace, I got the soldering iron out and removed the IR receiver from the board: this did not fix the fault. As there is nothing else I can do to fix the board I am currently trying to source a replacement.I have recently purchased a HDR-FOX-T2 (2 weeks ago) and am having the same problems as above: changing channels (up and down); changing volume (up and down); and going into standby mode on its own accord.
It looks the same to me: the board is green rather than the blue of the new main board. I have uploaded a photo showing the serial number sticker etc. The blue LEDs are a deeper blue, with a more purple hue than the old boxes (e.g units supplied with loader a7.30). This is similar to the later 'old hardware' boxes (e.g. supplied with loader a7.33) though, so is not a new development.That's interesting. The RE models have a newer firmware version on the front panel - does the hardware look the same?
