Humax / Not impressed with ICE
« on: November 26, 2012, 10:56:35 AM »
 :-[  A lot of blood sweat & tears went into a hardwire LAN connection to the Humax but I finally performed a digital extraction & registered etc to hook up to ICE yesterday.

So, reset all timers only to find on viewing last night that not all of "Sunday" was recorded.  As usual it started late but then chopped off at 7.30.  My understanding (obviously wrong) was that ICE actually followed broadcast time so more accurate recording on the Humax 7500 was possible.  Bottom line it is worse than the MAGIC I also use where there is an automatic 10 minute padding at the end of each setting.

Yes ICE does handle series nicely but, doing most viewing on SBS (where times are pretty accurate) and ABC (similar although not quite as good) so that option is no great plus in this house.

Result, at the moment I very much doubt I'll be paying $99 at the end of the freebie time.

Humax / Re: Just Bought into the Humax 7300T & about to sample ICE

Header correction - typo.  Of course it is a 7500T.

Is there no way of editing posts here?

Having to verify all posts is a bit of a PIA, particularly when it often requires more than one attempt,  but I guess there is a good reason?

Humax / Just Bought into the Humax 7300T & about to sample ICE

Second try at the first posting here.  No idea what happened to the other one!

The Toppy 7150 died so purchased my third Humax - still have a single tuner SD operating downstairs.  This is the 11th PVR owned and has nice ergonomics like the MAGIC.

I initially rejected the idea of ICE but have been persuaded by another DTV poster to give it a trial so here I am.  I'm awaiting LAN cabling but have bored through double brick walls and other obstacles ready. I just installed firmware 1.07.

Like DTV, this looks a friendly helpful forum.  Here's hoping not too much help will be needed! ::)
