Humax are having problems and are starting to send out software upgrades (night-time updates) - seems to be related to the new formats on the MUXs for the digital switch-over. Our 9150T hasn't been fixed yet but due any day (I hope)

Subtitles not working on humax recorder


Try switching subtitles Off, then On again. Otherwise a factory reset will normally restore the function. Note that a factory reset will not delete recordings, but you will need to retune and re-program timers

I have a 9320 humax hard drive recorder which keeps freezing the only way to restart the box is switch it off and back on again, i am losing lots of recording with this problem


This may help, especially if an update has gone wrong;
Turn off
Unplug aerial and turn on
Perform a defaults reset (you'll lose scheduled recordings and any changes you have made to settings)
Turn off
Plug in aerial
Turn on and perform a second defaults reset.

If that doesn't do it, please repost.

My Humax Duovisio PVR-9200T often freezes completely and has to be switched off at mains for a few seconds. Or commands from remote (eg subtitles, menu, channel change) take minutes to respond. Or...


Remove the Aerial.
Switch on or if it's frozen switch off at the mains and on again.
Press Menu
Installation and enter password - 0000
Select 'Default Setting' and OK
Select 'YES' and OK to restore all settings to factory default.
Confirm again to start loading, enter the password again and it will start scanning for channels but won't find any.
Replace the aerial and press OK to rescan and now it will find channels. On completion press SAVE then EXIT on your keypad.
You won't lose any saved programmes but you will have to re-schedule your recordings.

I have a Humax 9200T 160GB. It freezes after being powered up for 1-2 minutes. I removed the Antenna cable and SCART to TV and it powered successfully for hours. Connecting it back together it freezes...


Removed the aerial cable which enable the unit to operate.
In installation menu selected "Default settings". Once this had completed, I powered down the unit, I added the aerial cable and powered on the unit. Unit then searches for channels and stores them "save" tab. Issue resoved.

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.

Humax Tivo will not record to DVD


After the update to 1.15 I had to delete EVERY recording on the unit. After that, any new recordings would burn just fine. However, some have found that same failure even after a hard reboot (repower). Called Humax level-1 support and they suggested a replacement unit so I swapped it out. But I've since learned that TiVo "pushes" a DVD firmware patch (possible supplied by Humax) from 1.08 to 1.15 and that patch is the culprit. That patch is suppose to make the DVD burn at a higher spin rate. After talking with level-2 Humax support they heard of the problem and said "the unit is working as designed", meaning, the DVD drive manufacturer specs say the drive is capable of a faster burn rate. So now I have Humax DTR800 #2 and so-far-so-good, but TiVo hasn't pushed the patch onto the box yet!
