    I can only comment that I believe the Humax / BT boxes are the same except for the remote controls.

    Apart from the branding difference, the BT remotes have a dedicated button for accessing BT content.

    With your proposed set-up you may have to consider whether the internet speed from your phone is adequate for reliable tv reception. Also any costs that might be imposed given a high demand on your data tariff.
