Web interface version: 1.0.10-1 - "remote" broken

Not sure when this started, but I found the remote function is broken.

Each button functions only once. e.g. I can change to channel 3, then to channel 5, but not back to 3 as button 3 & 5 no longer function. (keys show as emitting on the webif graphic and the button history)

It seems to be something to do with IE11 - Firefox works OK.

Setting compatibility mode, rebooting the Humax or reinstalling IR did not change anything, but clearing the cache resets the problem - for one keypress per key.

Web interface version: 1.0.10-1
Custom firmware version: 2.21 (build 1897)
Humax Version: 1.02.32
IR version 1.07-4

Interesting, I use Firefox to access mine too so hadn't noticed since IE11 updated. There did used to be a similar issue with the virtual remote on Firefox I think. Sadly as often with IE updates, IE11 breaks quite a few things... got customers having to stay on IE9 or a mixture of Chrome, Firefox, and IE versions on the same machine for the different web portals that their customers and suppliers expect them to use. Just uninstalled it off this machine as one customer VPN doesn't work beyond IE10 and is IE only :-( No doubt can be solved, but was simpler to just uninstall..

I can't easily test with IE11.. any web developers reading who can test and see what's wrong?

Hi, not my realm of expertise but the following might help.

A "send" file appears in the cache for each keystroke - deleting that file enables that key again - once.

In developer mode I can capture the network traffic as below:

First use of 1 -2 -3:

/plugin/ir/send.jim?code=ONE HTTP GET 200 text/plain 55 B 141 ms XMLHttpRequest 2964 16 125 0 0 302033
/cgi-bin/status.jim HTTP GET 200 text/html 0.54 KB 3.46 s XMLHttpRequest 4790 0 3463 0 0 296885
/plugin/ir/send.jim?code=TWO HTTP GET 200 text/plain 45 B 78 ms XMLHttpRequest 22293 0 78 0 0 282767
/cgi-bin/status.jim HTTP GET 200 text/html 0.54 KB 3.52 s XMLHttpRequest 34789 0 3525 0 0 266824
/plugin/ir/send.jim?code=THREE HTTP GET 200 text/plain 45 B 78 ms XMLHttpRequest 53166 0 78 0 0 251894
/cgi-bin/status.jim HTTP GET 200 text/html 0.51 KB 3.52 s XMLHttpRequest 64788 0 3510 15 0 236825

Second use of 1-2-3

/plugin/ir/send.jim?code=ONE HTTP GET 304 text/plain 45 B < 1 ms XMLHttpRequest 78984 0 0 0 0 226154
/plugin/ir/send.jim?code=TWO HTTP GET 304 text/plain 45 B < 1 ms XMLHttpRequest 90231 0 0 0 0 214907
/plugin/ir/send.jim?code=THREE HTTP GET 304 text/plain 45 B < 1 ms XMLHttpRequest 108858 0 0 0 0 196280

I believe the response of "304" means the file was retrieved from the cache instead of the server.

Also in IE11 developer mode there is an option to "always refresh from server". Selecting that makes IR work again.

Therefore I assume some "no-cache" options need to be included somewhere - possibly in /plugin/ir/send.jim or maybe /plugin/ir/remote.jim

Hope that helps...:)
