    Man in Norfolk - 12 hours ago  » 
    We are also having this problem. We have 2 Humax HDR 1000S receivers.
    One has a hard drive and won't work on iPlayer, the other one without hard drive works fine. Both from the same dish. The non-working one has software version UKSFAA 3.00.98
    Thew working one has UKSFAC 3.00.98. I don't know if that makes any difference. Anyway I hope either BBC or Humax sort it out soon!

    I've already mentioned on page 1 that a HB unit (UKSFAC 3.00.98 software) appears to be working - Humax Towers are aware of this.

    You do not have 2 x HDR's you have one HDR and a HB.

    BBC passing the buck to Humax. Received this email today:

    'Thanks for getting back in touch with us regarding the ongoing issue with Humax devices accessing iPlayer.

    We have raised the issue and been in touch with Humax who have confirmed that they are investigating the issue.

    Unfortunately we have not had any further information than this from Humax but I can assure you it is being looked into.

    Any updates will be posted on our known issue page for the problem whenever they are available.'

    Two weeks now since the problem started. It really isn't good enough.

    Not good enough?? It's an absolute disgrace on both Humax and BBC's parts. This is a basic service which is working fine on Humax Freeview boxes. Surely this should be a simple fix. Why has this required 2 weeks worth of investigation, still ongoing? I think we're being had over a barrel in an attempt to force the purchase of a Freeview box or the newer Freesat 4K unit, which is awful.

    My feelings exactly. Especially when the blurb on the BBC iPlayer fault pages still indicates that Humax Freesat boxes are still supported.
    It does look like an effort to steer Hummy Freesat owners to the new 4k boxes...

    Thank you to Humax and the BBC and to you all for your input.

    Yes, thankfully at long last it now works again! Thank you BBC, Freesat and Humax for fixing fault. Please keep the boxes supported. They may not be the current unreliable newer Freesat box that overheats (!), But many users have spent a lot of money purchasing their equipment and stay loyal to Freesat brand. Now back to using my Humax 1100s. Happy viewing! John L
