    Hi, thanks for the add.
    I have a 5000T and wanted an espresso to use in the other room but it doesnt support subtitles and I am deaf. So I'm thinking of getting a refurbished 4000T, will they play each others recordings?
    Thanks.

    Thanks Grahamthompson. I have looked at that link. I dont need to be able to watch HD recordings one player to another, just standard. It looks as though this would be possible with a 5000 and 4000. What do you think? (Im not tech savy!!).

    You will certainly be able to play SD recordings but this will be using DLNA and I can't make subtitles work via DLNA; perhaps worth asking Humax Technical support if subtitles can be made to work.

    Martin Liddle, thank you, subtitles are essential to me. I will contact tech support as you suggest.

    Martin Liddle, a further question if you dont mind! If used 2 x 5000T machines would I have the same problem with DLNA & subtitles?

    I don't know for sure but I suspect the same problem would exist.

    Both are essentially identical other than minor cosmetic differences. So has to be yes.

    Note even sure if two HDR-FOX-T2's can view a recording on another with subtitles intact. Martin might know. I have two but second is currently not connected to accommodate a 5000T

    No they cannot.
