I do wonder if you actually lived with this box for a while.?
Major issues with lip sync, constantly need to reboot to solve it.
Unable to play from usb or network without apps. Picture and sound well below the FVP5000. You can't back up recordings to USB nor transfer to the hard disk.
Lots of potential, sadly very poor implementation.
The app only talks when on the same network too, so of little real use. Streaming on a tablet whilst someone else is watching on the device creates even more synch issues.
I bought it back in November, wish I'd sent it back. Persevered as I expected the issues to be sorted quickly with updates.
Humax peaked with the Fox HDR which was brilliant and worked really well. The 5000 was ok, but could forgive for the extra features.
