Why isn’t teletext or the red button on the remote control working?
My unit fails to connect with WiFi although I have full signal.
- Turn the Humax Box off with the remote or the button on the front of the box
- Unplug the Humax Box from the mains
- Power down and then unplug the Broadband Hub/Router from the mains
- Leave the Broadband Hub/Router off for 5 minutes
- Plug the Broadband Hub/Router back in at the mains and switch the power on
- Wait another 5 minutes and plus the Humax Box back in and switch on. Then with the remote or the button on the front of the box power it on.
If after performing these steps and you do not have access to internet services, it may be blocked by a strict firewall. Check your modem/router settings and if required, add the Humax box as an exception with full access.
You may also need to ensure that the following ports are opened on your router for the Humax Box.
Check your WiFi Security Key Type
If you are not seeing the router/hub and cannot connect then the issue could be caused by the default WiFi encryption protocol on the router. Make sure that the Hub is set to "WPA" auto or "WPA-PSK"(Tkip). If the box is unable to connect then you would need to try the router on WEP temporarily to rule out any WiFi security issues. You may need to have your ISP walk you through the process of changing either the port information or the WiFi protocol.
How can I pair my remote?
- The Humax Aura remote control supports both infrared and Bluetooth connectivity.
- Your remote is already paired with your recorder via infrared. During the initial set up process, we will guide you to pair your remote via Bluetooth.
- The remote LED will flash Red when paired via infrared and Green when paired via Bluetooth.
- If you do not pair during initial set up, or subsequently un-pair, the easiest way to re-pair is to press the Google button, this then displays the pair screen, and holding both the i and OK buttons for 5 seconds will start the pairing process.
