Humax to re-transmit firmware update for older DVRs

Freeview retune fix repeated

Set-top box maker Humax is to rebroadcast the long-anticipated firmware updates for its Freeview DVRs this week.

Owners of Humax's PVR-9150T, PVR-9200T and PVR-9300T will get a second stab at downloading the software from 28 June.

The revised firmware is claimed to fix UI and system slowdown woes that have hit all three boxes hard since the last major Freeview retune.

Humax previously released the software through its website, though few users have the serial port-equipped PC and null-modem cable required to transfer it to the set-top box. Humax issued the firmware as an over-the-air update earlier this month, but many owners missed it.

"Unknown to me, my PVR-9200T had crashed and so was unable to pick up the download," one Humax user told Reg Hardware. "So I'm very pleased it's being repeated. The system slowdowns have wrecked an otherwise excellent DVR."

Humax's broadcast schedule runs:

  • PVR-9200T 23-25 June
  • PVR-9300T 25-28 June
  • PVR-9150T 28-30 June

Humax said the firmware will be re-broadcast a third time, in July. ®
