Recommended Firmware Update Steps

To ensure a trouble-free firmware upgrade with no interruption to your recording schedule we recommend the following steps. 

Note: Your recordings will be safe as the following steps will not touch your existing recordings.


1. Ensure that you have all the Information you will need later

Before resetting the Humax you should write down your IceTV account details, and Wireless security details (if using wireless).

You will need the following IceTV account details
  • IceTV Username  (from 'Menu > Settings > Preferences > EPG Type > Existing' on the Humax)
  • IceTV Password
  • Your selected Region  (from 'My Account' on the website)
  • Device Label  (from 'My Account > TV Recorders' on the website)
If using wireless you will need the following wireless settings (from 'Menu > Settings > System > Internet Setting > Configure Wi-Fi' on the Humax) 
  • Network Name
  • Security Type
  • Password  (from your router or modem)
The wireless Password is your wireless network's password, also known as a passphrase or security key.
