    I wanted to transfer some of y recordings from my new Aura, like i did with my T2, to my external hard drive. I think I need an ftp app apparently, can anyone recommend one please?

    Hi, will the new Aura be able to transfer SD recording for archive like the old FOX HDR T2? USB transfer to HDD or USB Drive via USB ?

    Unfortunately not.


    I am very confused. Have things changed? I ask because the Aura Manual seems to say it is possible.

    I can see the recordings in Windows Media Player and play them on my PC but Media Player does not allow me to download them.

    Use FTP on your PC. Download a free copy of FileZilla.

    Login id = aura
    Password = 0000 (unless you have changed it)
    IP = The IP of Humax Aura (look in the same area as your clipboard attachment - under settings). Windows Media Player may also show the IP.
    Port = 2323.

    It works, just tried it.

    Or use the webpage at http://ipofhumaxaura:8080. It might need DLNA enabled.

    Many thanks!

    I will try it. FileZilla is the thing I was missing.

    I'll post how I get on with it.

    The Chrome way works the same as the 4000 did.

    In Windows open Windows Media Player
    Find the Aura 4K Media Server, click on Videos and all your recordings should list
    Right click on one and go to properties.
    Select the first bit of the link up to the .TS
    e.g. http://192.168.0.64:51003/web/pvr/HCONTENT:42.ts
    Copy that bit into the browser bar in Chrome or Edge and the file downloads as a .TS that can be played in VLC

    Thanks. That is very simple and worked for me.

    Firefoz downloaded the file as HCONTENT 45.mpeg so it lost its title. Windows Media Player failed to open it but it opened and played with MediaMonkey.

    It may be a problem with my Windows Media Player as it keeps throwing up error messages even after reinstalling it.

    The download is a lot quicker than copying files off my FVP-4000T.

    Thanks. My Aura IP address on my network is 192.168.1.163 so I went to http://192.168.1.163:8080 and it opened up the Humax Mobile Control page[i] which leads to a list of the recordings. I can play the recordings on my PC which is on the same network as the Aura but I cannot download the files to the PC.

    So have you tried Filezilla?
