Humax H3 Media Streamer. It has Netflix, YouTube and the TV player app, amongst others, plus subscription access to 'premium' channels.
It would be good to know if any of these are to be added later. It also claims to be able to play 'all recordings' from a networked FVPT.
If this is true, it could be very attractive to FVPT owners. However, I recommend getting confirmation that it can play high definition recordings from an FVPT before buying one. I got that email as well, and had to laugh. It looks and has features very similar to the Q box Sky are currently promoting. I wonder if Humax are manufacturing it for Sky. Brian Administrator Staff member. MontysEvilTwin said:. I wonder what protocol they are using to stream high def. Presumably it is not DLNA?Flinging live and recorded television around your home, Humax's tiny H3 breaks the lounge room shackles.
Australian free-to-air television can be painful to watch, but a decent Personal Video Recorder can turn broadcast television into your own personal Netflix — automatically recording your favourite shows each week so they're ready to watch when you flop down on the couch.
Credit: Wayne Ludbey. Of course these days we expect the freedom to watch our favourite shows on any device, anywhere around the house. While the HDRT PVR is designed for your primary television in the lounge room, the H3 Espresso is likely to end up connected to a secondary television in the bedroom or rumpus room. Like most streaming boxes, the H3 lacks a TV tuner and aerial input. The box also has built-in Wi-Fi.
Humax throws in a decent remote control but unfortunately it's not the most elegant or user-friendly onscreen interface. You can watch live standard-def and high-def channels on the H3, streamed from the Humax PVR on roughly a 5-second delay, with the same picture quality as the free-to-air broadcasts. This is brilliant if you want to watch live television in the bedroom but don't have access to an aerial socket. You're not breaking the law and the networks can't stop you, so you don't need to worry about the blackouts of premium sporting events like the footy enforced on the broadcasters' live streaming simulcasts.
The H3's strength is that it also lets you watch shows recorded on the PVR, but it doesn't support remote chasing playback so you can't watch the beginning of a movie while you're still recording the end.
One limitation when watching live channels remotely is that you're reliant on the twin tuners in the Humax PVR in the lounge room. If someone in the lounge room is watching Channel 9 on the PVR while recording Channel 7, then you can't watch Channel 10 on the H3 in the bedroom or on the mobile apps. At this point you can only watch channels from the Seven and Nine networks.
The Fetch TV Mini has an aerial socket and built-in tuner, so you can watch live television in the bedroom without tying up one of the tuners on the Mighty PVR in the lounge.
The downside is that the Fetch TV Mini can't stream live channels from the Mighty, as the H3 can from the Humax PVR, so with Fetch you're out of luck if you don't have an aerial wall socket in the bedroom.
There is a workaround because the Mini supports remote chasing playback from the Mighty, so you can start recording on the Mighty then start streaming from the Mini on only a slight delay.
Humax’s new H3 Espresso media player lets you stream live TV
The Mini's catch up apps can also tap into some live simulcasts and Fetch is looking to extend this. That's a better deal than you get from the Fetch TV Mini and most modern streaming boxes, harking back to Swiss Army Knife media players like the WD TV Live, although admittedly these days most people don't need these advanced streaming options.
You can also use the H3 as a wireless display to stream content from smartphones, tablets and computers — although it's not as flexible as something like an Apple TV or Google Chromecast.
The H3 is not compatible with Apple's AirPlay, nor is it recognised as a Chromecast-compatible streaming device, which means the H3's wireless display feature is unlikely to work with some internet video apps. Thankfully you can screen mirror using Android's Cast feature if you enable Wireless Display. The H3 is also recognised by media player apps like 8player on iOS and AllCast on Android, for streaming content across your network.
Unfortunately the H3 isn't designed with Australia in mind and doesn't feature catch up TV apps from Australia's five free-to-air broadcasters.I have had the t a while and recently added the h3 box for multi room. My t holds my recordings and I can access them via the h3 in another room. The problem I am having is that when I play a recording via the h3 and get to the adverts, I try and ffwd and guess when they have finished no 'live' fast scan pictureafter it stops, the progress bar on screen jumps to the left and then I'm back into the 1st part again before the adverts.
Try again and it gets worse, jumping more towards the front of the recording. When I try and rwd it then jumps forward. I have tried a factory reset on both boxes, reset my network, took the lot to a friends house and tried on another network completely and I still get the same problem.
Spoke to Humax support and they have swapped out the h3 but this one is still the same. They say they cannot help me further. One of the tech support guys told me he had a similar problem on their h3 in the office and told me John the manager was dealing with it via Korea John is always too busy to come to the phone I'm not impressed at all with the Humax 'support' centre. Has anyone else experienced similar problems with their h3 and can offer some advice, please?
Tech support told me that I was the first to enquire about the error Hi Steve, I don't have a H3. It has been mentioned a few times on this forum so there are some out there.
Accessing anything over the network via my fvpt is hit and miss and it's easy to tie the box up in knots, flakey best describes it and I don't use wifi or network power plugs. I only have HD recorded on the fvpt bar one SD file and only for test purposes.
As such only this one SD file is available for playback tests. I'm not sure what Humax were thinking with the H3, it seems to be an android media player. The app doesn't work on my tablet, but does for others. Personally I don't think the fvpt or the H3 have any hardware problems, just software, as I'm sure you've experienced. Unfortunately afaik, the H3 is the only device in town that'll access the HD recordings on the fvpt.
If you have an android tablet or phone I'd be inclined to install the app and then at least you'd be able to compare. The only bit of advice I can offer is to be patient with it, i. Hi Damian Many thanks for your reply. I have tried your suggestion and I am still experiencing the same problem.
It's got to be a software issue in either both or one of the t or h3 boxes. It's such a shame that Humax cannot come clean and just admit to the issue; I'd be much more inclined to keep the boxes then, if they were prepared to listen. At the moment, if Humax cannot come up with any solution, then both boxes will be going back.I have managed to download all 3 apps and get the remote to work really well, though I can't work out how to skip a day on the guide, as you would holding down the 'right' button on the regular remote.
If anyone knows how, I'd love to hear. However, my main question is about the Media Player. I have managed to download a number of programmes onto my iPhone but I can't work out how to play them! Any ideas please?? I don't have an iphone or the box. You would need a DLNA server app on the iphone and the content shared.
Humax launches H3 Smart Media Player
I don't have the box either bit on an iPhone, VLC or MxPlayer will play decrypted ts or m2ts files ie SD only along with a wide variety of other formats, but I usually play them from a portable wifi hard drive not from the phone storage itself. Perhaps Barry would know more about the capabilities of the Humax apps. Of course we don't know what the format is, however HD shouldn't be an issue unless it's itunes DRM protected content. I assumed, as he said he has downloaded them to the phone using the humax apps?
Perhaps the OP will clarify. Certainly an area of confusion. I was assuming the video files came from a internet source.
Youtube downloads for instance. On a Samsung Android mobile device will play most video using the built in app yet to find anything it wont play including downloaded p24 movie trailers.
Barry administrator Joined: Feb '11 Posts: 8, The app lists the programmes but there is no option to play, which is odd, given the name of the app!! I need help from someone who actually has the app, hopefully who has got it to work!
I've now had time to test this on ipad mini was confused as to why you were downloading but now know why I'll check this with Humax Towers. RSS feed for this topic. Please Login or Register. Username: Password:.HUMAX TV+ H3 demo
I can't see any posts here about the Humax apps but it seems an appropriate place so here goes. Graham I believe the OP is trying to play them on the iPhone not the other way round. He said he has content on the iphone he wants to play via the Humax box network media player. I have Android smartphone and tablets but principle is the same.
Barry administrator Joined: Feb '11 Posts: 8, offline. Re guide I don't have iPhone but on ipad mini TV Guide app - is there not a drop down menu for date above channel number, there is on ipad. Live TV app if accessing guide there is a calendar icon next to the date, again on the ipad. Media - as other members, clarification needed. Does nobody on this forum use the Humax apps then?? Sometimes it is not immediately convenient to check out problems.
