1- is it possible to change the audio language on a media video, many of mine have dual languages
2-if I disconnect the Ethernet cable & reconnect to Wi-fi it doesn’t remember the Wi-fi password
3-HDD or maybe fan seems a little noisy whilst the box is on.....any suggestions
4-maybe a feature request section could be added, with maybe a voting option, suggested to Humax also
5-also when searching in TV guide you can have ( LIST) favourites or e.g. movies but not movies in favourites...have also suggested to Humax to allow favourites plus a category
6-think Drama should be added t the list for TV guide searches
7-would love to see a wish list auto record facility as is found on the virgin tivo box, suggested to Humax
8-most of my video on my HDD is in MKV format, some are ok some play audio only and some not at all, but just jump to the next playable video, these play ok on my standalone media player, think Humax support for USB HDD video to be not that great
Sorry about the list, but seemed a lot easier than making multiple posts.....
I do think if Humax or this forum had a feature request section with voting, would save duplicate requests and help gauge how popular ideas were.......
The broadcasters have no way of specifying what is a movie by programme, only what the channel usually broadcasts (eg Film 4). The Freeview epg system does not have this capability, it wasn't designed that way.
So lacking this data in the epg stream Humax or any other box maker clearly can't do this.
You can use free mpeg editing software to delete unwanted audio tracks leaving only the one you want.
Because this software does not recode video content the process is very fast. Best approach is to change the container to the box native recording container (transport stream .ts with SD video compressed using mpeg2 and HD H264/AVC as broadcast).
Use the free software MediaInfo to identify what your files actually contain Video, Audio, subtitles and audio described audio tracks.
Have you seen the price of a 2TB SSD. The 2TB Seagate pipeline in both my HDR-1000S and FVP-5000T is inaydible even when sitting 1 metre from both boxes.
