Hello Humax Forum, forgive me if this question has been discussed before I’m a ‘newby’ so I’m still reading the forum for other tips and tricks.....
A few weeks back I bought a humax 4000t on recommendation and it’s great, however the box seams to become unresponsive?
For example tonight watching a catch-up program I wanted to pause to have a refreshment break, and even though the remote glowed red, the only thing that showed on screen apart from the continuing catchup program was the volume control up and down, everything else did nothing?
I placed the remote right in front of the box, and even pressed the power button on the box, and again nothing apart from the volume control via the buttons on the box.
I waited for 20 mins or so after the catch up program had finished, but was just left with the catch up 5 logo but could not do anything so I un plugged from the rear left for 10mins, and replugged and all was ok.
Another time, after turning the box off with the remote to enter standby a few days ago the box the following morning had a purple glow on the led, nothing was scheduled to be recording that morning and I had not set the power on function but again the box was unresponsive and again I had to unplug and reboot, the recording from the night before said there was no signal? The aerial is straight to the box? My old Sony recorder never had to be unplugged so can you help, I’ve the latest software on the box via a download via the Ethernet cable when I first plugged it in a few weeks back.
1. Is there an easy reboot other than unplugging as pulling the power to a hdd always feels wrong?
2. Is this just a Humax thing.....or do you think it’s a faulty box?
Please help, cheers Dean
