So is progress being made on this issue?
Yes

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?

Thanks,
Michael.

Does anybody know if this problem is specific to Humax with IceTV, or does it happen with the freeview guide also?  I read a post earlier in this thread which indicates that the problem occurrs when the IceTV guide data doesn't match the Freeview data wrt program start/end times.

I would have thought the Humax wouldn't give a crap for the FV guide if it's been told to use Ice...

Lingfish,

See

and

http://forum.icetv.com.au/iceforum/humax/37/padding-missing/3333/msg16514#msg16514

for info from Humax support about this issue.  Just wondering if anyone has verified that Freeview does in fact work....

FYI, my unit hasn't frozen again since my original post.  So I'm willing to accept that the issue is minor.  Now, if only they could fix the padding problem....

I definitely recall having the problem on Nine, Seven, 7-Mate and Ten (which is every station I have series recordings on).  So, for me it doesn't appear to be network-specific.

Humax do not respond to emails on this issue (so far for me) and ICETV are pushing this unit as their top pick, and yet it has an important features that simply doesn't work.

Padding is essential for ICETV to work, and this unit is frustratingly unrealiable without it...

P.S. Has everyone who commented here emailed Humax, maybe if we ensure everone complains they may wake up and do something about it..

I emailed Humax about this issue and didn't receive any response.  However, it does appear (from other other posts in this forum) that Humax and IceTV are working together on a fix...

This problem has been much worse for me over the last week or so. Almost every recording has no padding now....  :(

Humax / Frozen Unit
« on: March 16, 2012, 08:12:10 PM »
I have been one of the many people afflicted with the infamous Humax padding problem, but last night my unit suffered a different problem.

At about 8pm I tried to power on the Humax, but it was unresponsive.  I tried with both the remote control and the power button in the centre of the ring on the front panel - neither successfully woke the unit up (the circular led on the front was orange).  I was reluctant to cycle the power to the system as it was supposed to be about half way through recording MKR, so I just left it.

This morning I cycled the power and checked the recorded media - it appears to have frozen about 18 minutes into MKR (there was an 18 minute MKR media file on the disk).

Needless to say, wifey was less than impressed - last night was her Grey's Anatomy and Desperate Housewives night...  She's now making noises about sending the thing back...  I sure hope Humax fix these problems soon or that may be what I'll have to end up doing.  :'(

Anyone else seen this behaviour?

Hi Dave,

I emailed Humax support a couple weeks ago, not IceTV.

Glad I found this thread.  I have previously sent an email to Humax support regarding this issue without any kind of response.  Happy to see someone at the company is working on the problem.  Hopefully it will be resolved in the next fw update.
