Home humax foxsat hdr software update
The Humax Foxsat HDR is a popular Freesat HD recorder which (like most set top boxes) has some annoying software bugs, due to the company's ongoing lack of thorough Quality Assurance.
To add insult to injury, the Foxsat also has a poor manual software update process which often fails. Problems seem to arise when the Foxsat can't recognise the Memory Stick, due to formatting issues or when the box doesn't find the firmware update (.hdf file), due to it being in the wrong place on the drive or having the wrong file naming convention.
The poor FAQ on the Humax website and their lack lustre after-sales customer service offer little help in the event of firmware upgrade problems. For this reason I have found a solution myself!
This brief self-help article explains how to successfully apply a manual Software upgrade. To download the latest software visit the Humax Foxsat Firmware Download page.
