20 Most Recent Humax DRT800 TiVo Video Recorder Questions & Answers

Time for a new machine I think. Sounds like corrupted memory - fortunately the loader is still working - so you may be able to do a software update. So search the web to try and locate the last software update image and apply that using a laptop, with a USB to Serial converter cable, and the Humax windows firmware update tool. Not sure that any of that is still around given the age of the machine

This may help, especially if an update has gone wrong;
Turn off
Unplug aerial and turn on
Perform a defaults reset (you'll lose scheduled recordings and any changes you have made to settings)
Turn off
Plug in aerial
Turn on and perform a second defaults reset.

If that doesn't do it, please repost.

sounds like you are now picking up 2 transmitters, 1 Winter Hill, 1 welsh- Moel y parc. Due to the increased strength of the new Moel y parc signal
see http://www.digitaluk.co.uk/postcodechecker/main/trade/pr25+3ss/1/0

You can see its the channel 46 in orange thats your problem
Do the same retune but unplug the aerial until it gets past 46 so that it only finds the channels 56 and above that are from Winter Hill.
Bad news is that for you it gets worse when the extra channels come on next month. Looking at the aerial and maybe playing with attenuators might filter out the Welsh one

Yes, the Tivo will just record in standard definition, instead of high def.

You can still hook the two up together, though.

What I would suggest (and have done in the past) is this:
Split the cable coming out of the cable box.
Hook one up to your HD cable box, and the other up to the Tivo.
Hook the output of your HD cable box to one HD input on your TV
Hook the output of your Tivo up to a different (non-HD) input on your TV.

This will allow you to watch HD while recording standard definition, and vise versa.

Running the HD through the Tivo will work, but will limit you to not be able to watch HD through it.

Hi John the steps below shows you how to use the remote. If you need more information there's a link included for the Humax website. There you'll find the codes and also setup guides.

How to use the Universal Remote Control
1. Select the mode(PVR, TV, DVD, AUDIO) you want to set by
pressing the corresponding button on the remote control. The button will blink once.
2. Keep pressing the button for 3 seconds until the button lights on.
3. Enter the 3-digit code. Every time a number is entered, the button will blink. When the third digit is entered, the button will blink twice.
4. If a valid 3-digit code is entered, the product will power off.
5. Press the OK button and the mode button will blink three times. The setup is complete.
6. If the product does not power off, repeat the instruction from 3 to 5.
• When no code is entered for one minute the universal setting mode will switch to normal mode.
• Try several setting codes and select the code that has the most functions.
