    When we connect to the tv portal, we get what appears to be a scam message. It is littered with spelling mistakes and bad grammar, but essentially suggests that our humax account is dormant and will be deleted unless we login (classic!). Pressing 'back' clears it from the screen and we can proceed as usual. Just annoying that this message pops up every time we connect to tv portal. Any suggestions as to how to kill it?

    It's not a scam it's Humax conforming to the DPRD regulations.

    Just noticed that there is a 'don't display again' option, which appears to work when selected. If this really is an official notification then Humax would instil more confidence if the message didn't include poor spelling and bad grammar. The message comes across as a typical scam. eg Humax spell notification as nortification. Sentence structure and content is somewhat suspicious in places.

    Anyway, scam or not, I have got rid of the 'pop up' message.
