    Hi

    Simple question I think. Does the H3 support the Freesat recorders ??

    thanks

    Thanks for your quick response Barry.
    It seems an unusual development path unless, perhaps, Humax are moving away from the satellite source ?

    We have two humax satellite recorders:- a 1100S and a Foxsat (I think is the name). I'm trying to find a good way of watching the recordings of (+control of course) the 1100S in the second room and the espresso seemed a lovely solution. Any ideas anyone ? Are there any other more joined up products ?

    many thanks

    Gerry

    As the G2 boxes do not have a DLNA server (only a client) then only a wired solution will work which needs a second TV or Monitor.

    eg this uses a thin single cat 6 network cable.

    https://www.amazon.co.uk/Neet%C2%AE-HDMI-Extender-Single-Control/dp/B013T5IQH6/ref=sr_1_fkmr0_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1532766607&sr=8-3-fkmr0&keywords=neet+cat6+hdmi+extender+with+loop+through

    The other way round is possible if the Foxsat-HDR has the custom firmware add on installed. This has a DLNA server package and as the G2 boxes have a dlna client you can view Foxsat-HDR recordings.

    They have a request for quote out for the G3 boxes so definitely not the case. The simple fact is Humax initially promised a DLNA Server on the 1000S series but later could not deliver on that thru lack of processing power, so you will never see remote viewing on that platform.
