REQUEST - Plex Client for Humax STB

Hi,

 

Here in the UK,  Humax are popular STB's used to access either Freeview ( DVB-T / DVB-T2) or Freesat ( DVB-S2) channels, with integrated add ons for all of the On-Demand content available from channels featured on Freeview/ Freesat.

 

Humax have a " App Market" ( https://www.myhumax.net/AppMarket) which features a limited range of apps which can be installed on the STB's. I believe they are HTML5 based, and if I remember correctly the Plex for Samsung app uses a HTML5 based browser to act as a Plex client.

 

Would this be a possible route to bring Plex to Humax?! It would be a very popular feature as Humax boxes are popular here in the UK, and also have very good review's!

 

Alex

    I couldn't get my Humax to play anything which was transcoded at all. Resorted to adding an AC3 track to all my new rips in addiction to the DTS track :/.

    I've got the HB-1000S

    I'm using an HDR-Fox T2. The DLNA server occasionally throws a "file format not supported" so an official app would be awesome!

    I am about to purchase the new Humax 4Tune. Between Plex and the slingbox style features of the Humax unit this covers pretty much every TV and entertainment eventuality I can think of!! I would love to see Plex on Humax. This would truly be a one box solution!

    Out of interest what are the DTS issues that people have mentioned above when transcoding?

    This would be an awesome addition to the line up - it's so much easier to have one system to play all content rather than haveing to switch out for different apps

    For the WAF i'm looking for an all one box that can be a DVR for UK Tv as well as a plex client, to replace my aging Windows Media Centre and PHT setup.
