It wasn’t that long ago that we were so fed up with the endless problems we were having with our Humax PVR-9200T/9300T PVR boxes that smashing the things to smithereens was becoming an ever more attractive option.
It seemed an awful lot of Wirefresh readers had also suffered similar frustrations with their Humax PVR boxes, so we thought we’d tell you what’s been happening with ours since our last rant.
The good news… and the bad
The good news is that the freezes have mainly disappeared and the ‘stuck’ remote control issues appear to be fixed. At last!
The bad news is that some recordings still aren’t showing up and the noisy fan is still staying stuck on unless you physically turn the box off – and therefore render it useless for making any timed recordings.
We’ve no idea why the Humax thinks it needs the fan permanently stuck on night and day when the machine isn’t actually doing anything, but there appears to be nothing we can do it about.
Humax’s support site (a hideously designed Flash-powered thing) contains no useful information, so it looks like we’re stuck with the thing pointlessly wasting electricity until we bite the bullet and just get rid of it. When that day comes we certainly won’t be replacing it with another Humax, either.
We’ve had pretty much a thoroughly miserable time with our Humax boxes and found their support to be absolutely awful. But how about you, dear readers?
Tell us your stories!
