On my previous Humax, If I was watching a recorded program and I then watched live TV for a while, when I went back into my recorded programs, I was taken back to where I had been in the list of recordings.
On the 5000T, I am taken to the beginning of the list.
Is there something that I can set so that I will be taken back to where I was on the list of recorded programs?
How do I go back to the recording I was watching(24 posts)

I don't think there is sadly.
I too was used to an old Humax box (9300t) and was suprised when my 5000t didn't have the same feature (I'd assumed all boxes did what the 9300t did and took you back to the previously watched programme as I hadn't experienced any other boxes to know any different).
I thought I might write to Humax to let them know it's something I liked about the old box in the hope they might add it into a future update.Sun 30 Sep 2018 12:56:12 #2 |
There is a Recently watched menu.
I think it's Home > arrow left (to the leftmost option???) and select it > arrow left again. One of the options is then Recently watched - it is paired with All recordings.Wed 10 Oct 2018 9:37:58 #3 |
That sounds great thanks. Sorry to appear a bit silly, but can you tell me which button is Home?Wed 10 Oct 2018 14:01:27 #4 |
The big blue one on the remote control that gives access to everything..Wed 10 Oct 2018 14:04:38 #5 |

OK thanks, I have the RM-L08 with an FVP-5000T so I think the translation of your helpful instructions would be:
Press the Blue "On Demand" Button
Left arrow to "Recordings"
Right arrow to "Continue watching".
Down arrow and select recording.Wed 10 Oct 2018 17:53:35 #8 |
Thanks so much for all the advice.
My blue button does say On Demand on it, hence my confusion re the home button.
I’ve tried the method suggested, but, sadly, still don’t get offered the recording that I’ve just been watching.
I’ve decided that this is a dealbreaker for me, so, even though I’ve just bought this one, I’m going to look for another PVR. I would welcome any recommendations of a PVR that does fulfill this requirement.
Thanks again.Sat 20 Oct 2018 8:25:58 #9 |
Replace the 5000T with a secondhand pair of HDR-FOX-T2's. Connect both to your home network. You can watch any of the recordings made on one box in full-HD quality on the other. This will retain your up to 4 channel recording capability.
A G2 Humax satellite box will do what you want but of course you are back to two recordings at the same time and a dish is needed.
I agree the 5000T order of recordings is a pain. Going to try the above using my 2TB 5000T. Will post what happensSat 20 Oct 2018 9:58:54 #10 |
