hi guys,I bought a Humax HDR 1000s and am having a play with it since last night.I think its a nice setup and seems smooth out but im not getting any channel list when i switch from freesat to fta,i can switch between channels but am getting no list or epg to view,i know i can only get now and next with fta but im not getting anything at all on the humax in fta mode,all im getting is the channel name in the botom left of the screen,i have done a full scan and could see all the channels coming in during the scan but theres no pop up screen with any info about channel,program or whats on,is the reciever only good for freesat or is there a way of getting a normal fta menu,regards

You need to so a seperate scan in non freesat mode.

You can then order/delete them as you see fit.

thanks for the reply,i have done the scan just as in the youtube clip and have it working the same,its just i had expected the usual fta epg and program synopsis,not having a channel line up and synopsis in the stb mode is a bit of a let down but the feesat mode is ver nice,cheers

They just want to differentiate (Fresat vs Free to Air) it out a fair bit and make the freesat option more attractive I suppose. It's in their interest so can really blame them. Glad the video helped anyway.

anybody know how i can share out the humax HDR 1000 over a network. I would like to be able to drop mp3 files onto the box and then be able to play that file via the humax/tv. can seem to find any information on this out there.

When FTA channels are being discussed on this thread, are we talking channels which are on satellite but not part of Freesat? (As opposed to FTA channels on terrestrial, e.g. RTE on Saorview?)

Cheers guys.

i'd say satellite FTA as the humax doesn't not pick up the terrestial irish channels (saorview)!

Thanks kooga. That's what I thought but wanted to make sure I understood correctly.
