Humax / Have you tried the Humax remote from App store?
« on: April 28, 2014, 05:50:08 PM »
I've always thought the Humax remote was difficult to use with the play and FF etc buttons being a bit small. Can do it all from my iPhone now with bigger buttons. Nice. Hadn't seen a review here before about it.

Humax / Re: Humax freeze on Wi-Fi problem - Solved

Sorry to bump this but thought I should mention that it is also important to not only 'Manually" fix the IP address of the Humax but also reserve the IP address in the router too. Note the Mac address of the Hummy is what comes up in the router not what is shown in the Hummy menu settings (they are incorrect). I also set "Automatic Power Down" to 'on' and "Power saving in standby" to 'off' so that my wireless connection is not broken. Hope this helps as it saved me a lot of heartache if I had to put in ethernet over power cables.

With the Hummy media server turned on I can also see it on my PC using VLC and on my boy's PS3. Very convenient to have recordings played back throughout the house. I had trouble trying to do this before.

Humax / Re: Humax HDR7500T Freezes with Firmware v1.08.04

I have seen some people adopting my suggestion about using a fixed IP but really that is only half of the (possible) solution. You should try reserving the IP in the router also.

If you make the Humax static IP only, then whilst it is turned off or powered down, that IP can be stolen by another device in the house causing all sorts of problems when the Humax is turned back on again. I therefore suggest also reserving the IP address in the router using the Mac address of the Humax so the IP will not be allocated to another device. Now here is an interesting fact that has been picked up before. To reserve the IP address in the router, use the MAC address that comes up in the router when the Humax is turned on and not the one shown in the Humax menu under Settings. It seems they no longer match after a software upgrade.

The other thing that I have done is to turn off "Power Saving in Standby". Although my Humax powers down ("Automatic Power Down" is on) the WiFi connection is always maintained.

When I first got my Humax it was freezing all over the place but the above fixed it. Not even a glitch in 6 months. My assumption is that with this setup, the wireless connection establishes itself very quickly when turned on at the switch and is maintained throughout.

Humax / IceTV remote scheduling on standby?

With the Humax 7500t can you remote shedule with the unit in standby but with Power Save 'OFF' ?

No worries. It obviously saved you money too. I wonder how many of the ethernet over power line installs mentioned in the forum were really necessary.

Humax / Humax freeze on Wi-Fi problem - Solved
« on: October 23, 2013, 12:13:44 AM »
After I bought my Humax, I had same problem as others with it freezing when scrolling recordings or even menu items. This usually occurred straight after I turned it on. I figured that it may have to do with the Hummy still in 'boot' mode when I scrolled and that this was exacerbated with the device taking time to sort out it's IP address on Wi-Fi. I thought that maybe it would help if I set a static IP address for the device and also reserve the same IP address for the device in the router. I know that is redundant but my thinking was that it would shorten the Wi-Fi connection process. It worked. Been running for a month like this without one freeze. Thought I would share.

Guys this info absolutely excellent for a newbie. Some of this should be pinned. I will be ordering soon although it seems like I may not be able to rely on wireless?
Thanks

That is a fantastic instruction set nis220sx. I have not bought this unit yet but your info will save me hours of searching and experimentation when I do.

When the files are copied to a USB drive, are both SD and HD recordings unencrypted?

Thanks!
