Question about Humax DRT400 TiVo 40-Hours Video Recorder

1 Answer

Can I use HUMAX like a 24 hour surveillance recorder?

I don't want the HUMAX for TV. I want to ise it to record a camera for 24 hour surveillance. I do NOT have TIVO service. I also do not have a manual for the unit. Any idea how to do this?

If not, is there a customer service number or online manual somewhere?

Thank you!

For the TIVO series 2: hit the TIVO button, then go to messages and settings, then to to video input, then go to change input, then pick which input your camera uses. It will ask you if you can see the picture. If you can click the answer and then hit the select button. Then hit the TIVO button again then hit watch live tv. 
The Humex should work very similar.

This device has a fan that will turn on when the temperature of the internal hard drive reaches a certain level. The problem may be due to a faulty sensor, fan or both. here's a forum for this hardware that may be of help: http://hummy.tv/forum/forums/hdr-fox-t2-freeview-recorder.13/

How are you changing from recorded to TV? If you are switching the TV input, it could be because it's looking first for analogue TV stations but there are none any more, so it then reverts to the SCART and shows the Humax satellite station. If you are just pressing STOP on the Humax then you shouldn't have a problem, but if you do have the problem then the Humax must be faulty.

Humax DRT800 DVR recorder has no sound


Loss of sound is often a problem with the SCART connections. The SCART may not be pushed in securely, or if the SCART is old the pins may not be good. Check SCART is securely in, or try another SCART lead.

I can't figure out how to record two shows at once on my DRT400 Humax Series 2 Tivo.


You can't. The unit doesn't have dual tuners, so your stuck with just recording one show at a time. Sorry.
