  1. Sorry to ask the question again – can I use the USB port on my box to record programmes on to a memory stick/pen. Non techy so please let me know.
    Thank you

  2. @Graham

    No, Humax don’t allow recording to USB like TechniSat do, but you can transfer recordings from the in-built hard drive to USB memory stick etc

  3. I have have limited success in getting an emailed response from Humax but it’s always answered by a guy with serious literacy issues!

  4. Ref my question regarding recording directly to a USB Stick – thank you admin.
    I have looked at the menu etc and cant see how I can record/transfer from the HD to USB.
    Again being a non techy I have to ask how to do it, any help/advice much appreciated.
    Thank you

  7. Re 24
    I had same problem with freezing, now resolved by setting to power down when on standby, this causes set to reboot each day at time set to turn on, problem cured.
    Is it possible to set so as current time is shown on display, if so how.
    Time is shown if I pause then restart but not able to get current time.

    try this worked for me put your usb memory pen in the front of your (HDR), click media then click on opt+setting then file manager, then OK, (OK on remote) then move across to your usb press OK on remote to open your usb then highlight the recording you want to copy the copy symbol should go green, press OK on remote you should then get function menu with copy on it, press OK on remote, and Rob’s your uncle as the say,

  9. I purchased my HDR box back in Feb. 2009 and have been extremely pleased with the picture quality and overal functions, including simplicity of use; however I was informed about two months ago that new software was available and hence tried to update via the HDR box but was unsuccesful.
    1 – On checking my system I was on version 3 software and advised that ver 11 was available at the time; however since then, this has been superseeded by version 12.
    2 – Given I have set my HDR box to receive automatic software updates from installation, clearly there has been a problem with my system as it has not updated automatically via OTA (Over the Air) . I have a twin cable installtion.
    3 – I have followed the upgrade process as per the instructions on the Humax web site without any success to date – this is despite trying three different size USB memory sticks (1,2 & 4 GB), re-installing system, leaving system on overnight (advised necessary to receive ‘OTA’ updates..?)
    4 – Despite many attempts to upgrade, all have failed to date – Message ‘Error E-OS’ displayed every time (assume Operating System error..?)
    5 – I note from various comments on the web that other people are also having similar problems – is there a definitive upgrade process for the new Ver. 12 s/w that works…? ( or, maybe I have a defective box..?)
    6 – I also note that the firmware level on my system indicates version U.52 whereas I understand new HDR units have U.53, is this the problem..? I have not tried to upgrade the Firmware as yet
    Any advice to resolve my upgrade problem would be greatly appreciated.
    Regards, Tony
