I have had no issues whatsoever since applying the firmware and applying a factory reset
No issues for me since firmware update and factory reset either.

Humax / Re: Firmware 1.06 for Humax HDR7500t to be released

What difference do the power settings make and why would people leave the box on all the time? I use a Logitech Harmony remote to put the tv and Humax into standby at the end of the day, I always had power saving and automatic shutdown on and it never missed a recording or lost the epg.

Since the new firmware issues I have turned both to off but it doesn't seem to make any difference (unless the box failed to go into standby I guess it would be on all night).

The workaround for the Padding issue was to disable all power saving features - see "Padding Missing" thread for details.

I've had no issues since I factory deserted the box. Now working fine

Hi Swamprat96,

Good to hear everything is working.  Could you please confirm that you have power saving features enabled?

... It's an interesting question which I think put's the 10% discount into perspective and still stands should you wish to accept it.


Kind Regards,

10% discount?  Available to all customers who have suffered this problem and patiently awaited 1.06 for 6+ months?????????

Anyone tried 1.06 with power saving enabled yet?

After watching more shows last night and not being able to see the end because its cut off, I have now switched back to the freeview guide to see if its reliable.

I am so cheesed of over being sold a known dud unit. Honestly IceTV pull these from sale until you have a confirmed working update.

Are you talking about back to back programs in the above quote?  If not, have you tried the power saver workaround detailed in the "padding missing" thread?  Although I would not consider it a satisfactory long term fix, it seems to solve the issue while we (eagerly) await the forthcoming update.

Touch wood - I haven't seen this issue for about a week now.  Not sure if it's something that's changed with the IceTV EPG or if the power work-around has suddenly decided to fix things for me...   :o

As I mentioned on 26/5, the power settings have no effect on this issue for me.

Well I asked Humax for a progress report and got the following from the lady I have been dealing with there..

Is your Power Saving in Standby and Automatic Power Down OFF?
You will see above two options ON as a default.
Please turn them off.
Then, please turn the box off using rear switch and turn it back on.

As a IceTV user you need to have HDR-7500T to communicate with the IceTV server all the time.
When Power Saving in Standby is ON, when HDR-7500T goes into the standby, it goes into what we call ‘passive standby’.
It means none of USB ports, network, terrestrial etc will operate during standby mode.
(Only those require to wake up HDR-7500T at scheduled time which were stored before HDR-7500T was put into standby will run)
Therefore, if you have above options off it will not communicate to the server and you will lose some recordings you set up during HDR-7500T was under standby and paddings on some recordings.

We were carrying out investigations on paddings as many customers were claiming contrary opinions on paddings.
We have collected valid testing results from comprehensive testing with IceTV EPG on HDR-7500T and very close to put an end on the padding issue.

Until we have final confirmation I cannot say whether there is any permanent resolution on padding issue but there may not be a need of any resolutions.
I've now been testing this suggestion for a few days.  It doesn't appear to have any effect on the problem.  Padding is still being missed on many (most!) recordings.

Yes I also have this issue, but view it as minor compared to the padding problem.

I've now missed the end of Masterchef three nights running due to this issue >:(

Thanks for the workaround, Dave.  I'm on the Gold Coast and regularly see this issue on 9/NBN and 7/Prime networks.  I'll let you know if it works.

FYI - My issue in the original post was not related to streaming and/or DLNA, though I do have the unit always connected to our LAN.

As noted earlier, I haven't seen the problem again since the first occurance.

Great - Thanks for the update Dave.

So is progress being made on this issue?

Hi Dave,

I for one really appreciate the fact that you are keeping us in the loop on this issue via the forum.

Are you in a position at this stage to give us a rough eta on the fix?  Will it be in the form of an update to IceTV or a firmware update?
