Tivo uses a wireless USB adaptor. They sell for around $45 - $60 dollars at most electronic stores. They use them to update the tv guide as well as download additional programming such as tivocasts. It's better to use than the phone linew.

What does code 576p indicate?


576p means 576 lines, progressive scan. 576 is number of visible lines on the UK system (and other nominally 625 line countries). The normal transmission system for these countries is 576i (interlaced scan), so I suspect that you are only seeing the 576p indication because there are no channels, and your TV is interpreting this as progressive scan.

The reason for no channels may be a poor signal from the aerial, or that the device (Humax or TV) has not been tuned. If you have power-saving enabled on the Humax, it will not pass on the aerial signal to the TV when the Humax is in standby. If this is the case, either turn power-saving off, or use a splitter to feed the aerial separately to the TV and Humax.

Humax hdr-1100s . Has anyone used a triax tri link with this pvr. If so, what connections did you use?


Use the RCA connectors on the Humax. You will need a suitable adapter lead, such as:

This version has a switch to set whether the signal goes from scart to RCA, or RCA to scart, so you'll need to find the correct setting.

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.

How do I get connected to broad band with my humax/freesat


Is it a wired or wireless connection?

If it is wired, check that the cable works in another device (such as a laptop).

If you're using a wireless dongle in your Humax, you will need to provide the wireless key to register the dongle with the network. You may need to do this in another device (such as a laptop).

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!
