I noticed that the TV Portal has been updated with 3 new additions Picasa, Teletext Holidays and Facebook, Also it is no Longer BETA
You can see the portal from a PC browser by typing in the URL - I don't think it lets you do anything though. There is some kind of encrypted exchange which authenticates the Humax box with the Humax site.Was there a method for fooling humax portal into letting you use it from a computer? If so, this could be a good work around to watch iplayer when outside of the UK
There is, but it isn't straightforward. You need to extract the client certificate and private key from the Humax firmware and reverse engineer the password that protects the private key (humax2010hdrfoxt21kssl) then change your browser's user agent and make it authenticate with the portal web site using this private key/certificate pair. You also need to request the same URL as the box which includes the MAC address and system ID as part of the request..Was there a method for fooling humax portal into letting you use it from a computer?

A couple of days ago I asked Humax what's happening and this is the response received today:
Sky player is still in development, we have no release time at this stage.
Facebook and some other services were launched in error, they shouldn’t have appeared on the TV portal yet as our engineers and software department was testing something, although Facebook did appear for some time, we believe key aspects of the application were not accessible, such as login. When we have a release date for future applications we will contact customers and update our website accordingly.
