    The Humax TV Portal has changed, you can register an account at www.myhumax.net to link to your set top box.

    The downside is that the HDR-FOX-T2 does not seem to be supported. :(

    Try a different email address if you have one, just to see if it works?

    I've had a HDR-FOX T2 and HD-FOX T2 for a couple of years now (used to have two Toppys); I've just selected 'TV Portal' to find the appearance has has change, it's labelled 'TV APPS', Internet radio now works and it asked me to register on myhumax.net using a reg' code given by the portal. I've been on 1.02.29 since July.

    Registered on myhumax.com, using the reg' code generated for me on my Humax TV Portal, only to be told my device is not compatable - bah, what's the point?

    Can anyone explain please?

    Weird, wasn't expecting humax to roll out anything new at this point. Will have to check this tommorow, but a quick look at the site shows a remote scheduling feature!
    Maybe they are finally paying attention to the mods?

    According to Barry over on MyHumax.org an update to the browser in the HDR software will be required and currently it isn't clear when this will be available.

    I just tried it on the HD-FOX and although the appearance has changed (like a tile interface) I was still able to access iPlayer. There was a "reg code" button but I ignored that. I will try the same on the HDR-FOX shortly.

    Ditto HDR-FOX. I can access iPlayer, I had to agree to the privacy policy to access YouTube, and I can access Internet Radio - all without bothering with a reg code.

    HDR-FOX is on 1.02.20, HD-FOX is running 1.02.29.

    Could it be new users who have not before accessed the TV Portal are falling into this pit?

    What is 'this pit' you talk of Black Hole?

    A pit-fall!

    I thought the earlier posts indicated they couldn't access the services without this reg code thing, but on second reading they only specify Internet Radio - but I can still access Internet Radio without a reg code so I'm not quite sure what's going on.

    Either way as long as I can still access iPlayer (and rip the stream) that's all I care about.

    One major change I have noticed from the new format of the TV Portal, the old portal continued the live channel in the PiP until an app was selected. Now there is no PiP (OK - I know it's not strictly a PiP).

    Yeah i don't like that either BH.
    Its almost as if they want to force you to use it in silence.

    For what it's worth I much preferred the old portal. I don't suppose we have a backup of it somewhere, available to re-skin the portal?
