SOURCE: How can I extend my humax freesat box into another

my suggestion, come out of the box with a splicer cable a small 6 inch piece is enough. Get a high quality cable splitter such of what the Cable guys would use, you can buy them at a hardware store. Note that you can get more than a 2 way splitter however the more you split the lower the quality at the other end,. Anyway you split the cable after your cable splitter 1 to the tv, and take the other one which ever room you want.

My youview has taken over my humax channels


Put BT box into standby. This is probably due to the scart connection. Try to connect both boxes via HDMI if possible.

Humax Freesat was working fine then lost signal and now is not reognising postcode. We have unplugged/repluged, checked all cables (all OK) and tried to restart but as it is now not recognising postcode...


This can happen if the dish is slightly misaligned. I believe the postcode tables are read from a satellite which is about 0.3 degrees away from the Astra satellites. If your dish is slightly misaligned it may not be able to receive it correctly, also the following is the standard procedure which you've probably already been through, but I hope it helps:

1. Freesat Detection Fails / Invalid Postcode
  • Unplug the Foxsat-HDR from the mains and unplug the cable from your dish which is connected to the LNB IN
    connection.
  • Check that the "F-type" connector is firmly on the end of the cable.
  • Power on the and follow the Installation Wizard again.
2. If still not Detecting the signal or verifying postcode
  • Select NEXT through the Installation Wizard and then FINISH at the end.
  • Press the OK button to enter the SETUP menu and Select Manual Tune.
  • Select the following Transponder (11428 H 27500 A) from the list of Transponders.
  • Check that you are receiving stable levels for both Signal Strength & Signal Quality or >50%.
  • If you are not receiving sufficient Signal on this Transponder then you may require an installer to check your
    Dish Alignment, LNB, cabling, or connectors.

Humax PVR9300t keeps freezing, have received instructions from Humax on resetting PVR to basics which hasn't solved the problem. Is now starting to freeze during recordings.


Apparently there is a new Humax software update which will be released on 3rd March 2010 - leave your box on standby that night & hope for the best.
There are a number of us with the same problem. Curently the only solution is to power cycle the box (turn off & on again from the switch at the back)
