I leave my humax set to record for the 6 weeks I am away once a year. For the last two years it has cut in earlier than the programme time, starting with a minute and after a week, 5 mins early , gradually increasing to 25 mins. after 6 weeks. It is very frustrating to keep missing the end of a programme, then finally almost all of it. I have checked the time setting is acurate on the actual machine several times. I can find no reference to this problem in the handbook and would like to remedy this urgently. If I do not switch the tv on for a week, it is also out buy a few minutes, gradually increasing again. HELP PLEASE


Whats the most common cause of hardrive failure on a white 10/10 humax box where it doesent recgonize your hardrive even when you have replaced it. ive bought two white boxes off e.bay and both have the same problem. This seems to be a common fault with the older humax boxes. If theirs nothing humax can do about it, then they should take responsibility for this. I will never bye a white box again.


When I play programmes through the T2 sound is briefly interrupted at regular intervals eg ~once per minute, disconnecting the T2 cures the problem but it means the error occurs whenever I record. Any suggestions?

I am unable to access the list of recorded programs. No response when pressing the MEDIA button


75% of my recorded programmes have disappeared overnight ! HELP


When I go to the Media section to select a recorded show the Deleting . . . is in the top left hand corner of screen even tho I haven't selected anything to delete, I cannot record any more programs.


NO SOUND


I have found that all my recordings have dissapeared and also the box will not record. I have gone into the menue to clean up HD hard drive but it is not there. My grand kids will be upset as all their films have gone. Hope you can help.

Problem: The unit has just frozen up. It keeps freezing and then shutting itself down.

There are 0 comments on this problem.

Solution 1: It can be extremely frustrating when this happens. Most of the time, there isn't much you can do other than turn it off and then on again, at the mains if the power button isn't responding.

However, there are a few things you can check to help prevent it in the future. Number one is check how hot it is. Freezing can happen when the unit isn't properly ventilated or is in a hot place. Make sure all the vents are uncovered and there is nothing on top of it.
You might also want to check for system updates.
Finally, you might consider turning the unit off and then on again regularly to reboot it. Freezing often occurs when it has been running for a long time, so once a week or so you could try to reboot it by switching it off and on. If you don't want to do this yourself, you might consider buying a timer switch to do this for you at a time you know you won't be using the machine, e.g. 4AM.

Problem: Recordings keep failing. Sometimes when I record a programme, I get an error message and I lose the recording.

There are 0 comments on this problem.

Solution 1: Recordings fail for a number of reasons. If you schedule the recording and it records - but records the wrong thing - the box might be tuned to two different regions. Reset the channels and manually tune them if you suspect this to be the case.
If the unit is on a series record but has missed the programme, check the programme guide to see if future episodes are being recorded. It may have identified the programme as a different series for some reason, so set a series link on any future episodes that are not being recorded.

Other failed recordings can show a problem with the unit. One or two failed recordings do not necessarily mean that your unit has a fault - it could be due to a power cut or your box could have (unluckily!) frozen or crashed prior to the start of the programme.

However, if there are numerous failed recordings and it continues to occur even though you can watch TV OK, it sounds like a problem with the hard disk and this will need to be either repaired or replaced.

Problem: Picture keeps stuttering and is blocky and pixellated.

- Check that the fan is working and that the back plate is not getting hot. If it is not working you may have cooked the motherboard. I have had two Humax failures, over a few years, due to this problem. If you are lucky just replacing a faulty fan will sort the problem. You will also have to do a disk format to get rid of corrupt files You might also need to do a factory reset and then go through all your setup options again.
