I have a humax hdr 1100s for less than six months and I have had issues with the thing which are exactly the same as the vintage humax I replaced.
At random points, the humax freezes. the remote is unable to stop playback, change channel or or do anything. In short the whole system freezes. Further, the tv also freezes and I have no control over the remote for the tv or the remote for the humax.
The only way to get control is to yank the power cable out of the box and wait up to two hours.
Why is this happening and what can I do to prevent it?
Further information that you are likely to ask:
The humax is switched on at around 8am and is used for an hour, usually replaying something on the pvr, with fast forwarding over commercials. It is switched off via remote around 9am.
It is turned on again 11-2pm then off
It is turned on again for up to two hours 6-8pm
It is turned on again for up to two hours 10.30 -12.30 all with much fast forwarding over the commercials.
It is switched off overnight via remote but is on standby.
When it freezes, I can do nothing with the remote. Nothing responds. Further, the tv remote does not work to return the tv to tv status.
I take out the batteries from the humax remote, then pull out the power cable at the back of the machine. I then press HOME and '0' on the remote. After this I can get control of the seperate tv remote.
After two hours, I plug it back into the power and the humax works perfectly.
This issue happens around once a week.
The remote for humax and the tv are seperate and not paired.
It is currently with a sony bravia tv but this happened when we had the panasonic tv.
I have changed the batteries on the remote.
Hdmi cec is turned off
Tv is on correct source for humax when in operation.
I follow the same process each time i turn on to view - tv on using tv remote, watch tv for a few mins, press on button on humax remote, wait for it to boot up and auto change the channel, then watch humax.
Humax is on standby overnight.
I would like to know how I can stop this happening as it is very annoying and if I have to yank out the cable, anything I had scheduled to record now will not record.
