    Hi guys and gals :)
    Please excuse the following ignorance, my excuse is that I'm new to this stuff !!
    I (think) I've just installed the customised firmware for my version which is 1.02.28.
    How do I know if it's "taken" ?
    Is it meant to appear on the front panel on start up because it doesn't.
    I'm trying to now install the web interface but when I enter the IP address into the firefox address bar it just doesn't connect.
    Would this be due to the fact that the firmware hasn't taken or am I missing something else (more than likely) :(
    Thank you in advance for any help that you can give this "newbie"

    It sounds like you have downloaded the official Humax firmware and not the custom firmware, check the different sections in the download page.

    There is a step-by-step guide on the WiKi HERE

    Hi again peeps :)
    First of all, thanks for the replies.
    Ezra, I had read that guide (many times) which is why I was so frustrated that things wouldn't work.
    I had also seen the different types of software/firmware available and could have sworn that I had got the right on (on the 3rd USB stick that seemed to work) :mad:
    As it now turns out......yup you've probably guessed.....I had indeed got the official and not the customised file.
    All sorted now (still took 3 tries for the Humax to "like" the USB stick), and web interface all up and running!!!
    Now I just need how to use it and to get the most out of it.
    I've tried playing some file thru it but no luck, which isn't a problem as I have had success by firing up VLC on its own and going thru local network/UPnP etc.

    Thanks again for the help...I bet you wish all problems were that easy to sort out ;) but then again not everyone is as stupid as me :D
