Humax PVR 9150T Switching on in the night

My 9150T switches itself on in the middle of the night. The standby and recording lights are on. The only way I can clear this is to effectively re-boot the machine by switching it off at the wall because the remote control will not function during this time. When I check my recording schedule, there is nothing there to be recorded at that time of night and when I check the recorded programs there is nothing there either. Please help.

    I Have exactly the same problem.

    I have the identical problem every day. The machine is running every morning and does not respond to the remote. Plus the machine fails to record any programmes in its schedule when this happens when I am away.

Many PVRs are updated at around 3:00am (software and/or EPGs).
Check you HUMAX settings - I think there IS a way of turning off auto-update.

I think the PVR is trying to update the software but is obviously unable to do so.

My humax pvr 9300t is affecting my programmes and switching itself on and off every few minutes


Try switching it off at the mains for a few minutes.

If that doesn't fix it, I suspect that the disk is faulty or corrupted.

9150T keeps switching off


This may be due to disk corruption or, more likely, failing PSU capacitors.

After switching off and on last night the volume and mute on stopped responding on Humax remote. IT is PVR9150T and remote RT531B. TV Remote works fine with volume. Humax remote works fine on all exce


Note that this type of device is designed to be left on at all times, so should not be switched off each night. I suspect that it has some slight corruption in the user-settings, so a factory reset may be required.

We are all having the same problem. It must be data error sent for TV listings. No idea what to do though. Just wait I guess. Very annoying though.

HUMAX PVR-9150T : REMOTE CONTROL DOES NOT TALK TO BOX - This has only happened recently and is not a battery issue. The box displays green lights on ''standby'' and ''tv'' I have tried reset, but cannot...


I also have this same problem. Freezes after about 30 seconds to a minute after switching on. Think it is possibly related to the program listings sent to it. May be some error. How do I fix though???

Humax digital recorder picture freeze every 10 minutes


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)
