Humax / Re: Wi-Fi Static IP
« on: July 12, 2013, 05:09:42 PM »
Hi Ian. I also have a Toppy 2460 and I have never had that issue you mention. In fact my network has been very stable and everything cruises along nicely by having the IP set on all the clients. My router is an Asus RT-N66U.

What I find a bit odd with this Humax is it allows setting of static IP on the LAN side, but not on the Wi-Fi side (well not that I can find anyway!).

I have 35 clients, all static addressing. I have had router failure before, so it is just a matter of plugging another in, set DHCP to off and away you go!

I'm at work now so I'll have a look when I get home. Unless the recent firmware changed it I definetely had it set . When you open wifi settings does it show DHCP? The setting is either there or under it

No, under Wi-Fi the only settings are:
Network Name, Security Type & Password

No expert but I have set the static IP for the Humax in the router settings, not on the Humax. That way every time the Humax requests a new IP the router gives it the same one. Most routers have the ability to set at least one static IP and usually several. It works for me.

Having said that, I don't really understand why a client device has this menu setting in the first place.



I assume you did that using the Humax MAC? I have never had to play with router settings for any Wi-Fi device before, they have all had that option in their own settings.

Tried all combinations, just looks like you cannot have static IP addressing on Wi-Fi. To me, one thing that lets this PVR down then. You can on LAN but not on Wi-Fi, bit odd!

Tried that, but as soon as I go "apply" in the LAN settings it tells me there is no LAN connection and I go no further.
I might try setting it up on a LAN connection first then insert the Wi-Fi dongle and see what happens.

Humax / Wi-Fi Static IP

Just received the Humax HDR-7500. One issue I have, and a setting that I have always seen in other Wi-Fi devices, is the ability to set static IP addressing. The Humax doesn't appear to be able to have static IP other than the LAN. My network is static IP as I have devices that I access over a VPN. Bit disappointing or am I missing something?

Your guide is showing Project Xtreme on Sunday May 19th at 04:30am. Both V8 Supercar website & other guides show V8 Supercars
Circuit Of The Americas Texas. Yet the race telecast on Monday morning at 04:30am is correct.

This will obviously affect the IceTV recordings for those that are not aware of the changes and do not retune their PVR's on the scheduled days.
I am surprised that IceTV themselves have not sent out an email notifying that this is to occur as the first change will affect Adelaide on the 3rd of May, just over two weeks away.

I know Adelaide had the analogue service switched off recently but I was not aware that digital frequencies will be changing Australia wide starting May 2013.
"The retune begins in May 2013 and is due to be completed by 31 December 2014. Different areas will need to retune on different dates"

We do receive the odd request for PP, but not enough demand to make it a priority.

I certainly would use PP if it was made available. It isn't so I have never bothered making the request.
I use PP for mostly all of my online purchases now. I certainly would use the facility.

IceTV EPG Content / Farmer Wants A Wife

Famers Wants A Wife, Wednesday Channel 9 Adelaide, last week was on the EPG for 8pm start, when it actually started at 8:30pm so the wife missed the last bit! This week is also on at 8:30pm going by third party guides but IceTV guide and my reservation is showing an 8pm start. Big  Brother, showing 7pm start and duration of 60 minutes is actually 90 minute duration.
