    This forum was setup with the primary aim of aiding Humax PVR and STB owners. While we encourage forum members to help themselves and each other out via discussion and exchange of information, we discourage activities that might cause people to ‘infringe’ laws and/or break terms of conditions of third parties involved.

    We currently view the activity of decrypting HD recordings on the Humax PVR as one such activity that might break the terms and conditions governing the use of the Humax device imposed by the UK broadcasters, and hence we will remove links and posts instructing users to do this.

    Please co-operate with this forum’s terms and conditions and refrain from making posts with information and links which encourage users to readily perform this activity.

    I registered for this website forum about 5 days ago, and have been waiting ever since for verification and password. Nothing so far.
    Can you advise why the delay, or progress my registration.
    I cannot see where to send my request other than here – I hope this works.
    I have tried setting up my details again, but cannot progress it as “my email is already in the system”.

    I am trying to control a Humax Freesat HDR in another room using a Marmtek power mid IR receiver/transmitter. All hi-Fi equipment works fine except Humax, where a double click is required to operate the box.
    Any ideas for single click operation please. Handset work fine with Humax if pointed directly.

    Hi – just been reading on the forum problems with the download loop of the software update for HDR 2000t – via ariel.
    Indeed – but found a solution.
    Download and unpack the zip file of update to USB stick.
    Power off the 2000t.
    Remove ariel from 2000t.
    Insert USB stick.
    On power up – IMMEDIATELY press menu button on remote – to prevent upload attempt via ariel again.
    If file is correct on USB stick – download and install should commence and complete very swiftly.

    I have never used a forum or blog before but as my Humax HDR-2000T 500GB recorder caused me such irritation recently I figured I should share the solution.
    My Humax decided to start updating it’s software a week ago and when it got to 99% it then returned to zero and started all over again in a continuous loop. It stated do not disconnect but after 3 times I removed the plug and HDMI cable for a while in the hope that this would resolve the problem. It didn’t.
    After a week I rang John Lewis in Cribbs Causeway, Bristol where I bought it, the nice man helpfully found the answer to get it out of the loop. Here goes….
    Unplug the Humax for at least 10 minutes. Next, sit on the floor by the box under the television (that’s where I expect yours is too) Plug the Humax back into the wall/multi-socket and immediately when the HUMAX wording appears on the screen, HOLD THE CHANNEL DOWN BUTTON in for 30 seconds. That’s the upside down “V” not the one on the remote! The light on the front will turn to blue. When you release the down button, either the television will either automatically come on or the blue light will go back to red. If it’s red, wait a few minutes for it to settle down then touch the remote on/off button. The Humax should be out of the loop. Good luck.
