I didn't think the aura app was available yet and it has to be said user reviews of this device have been less than stellar and that's definitely put me off picking it up. Hopefully firmware updates will help going forward...
No product is perfect...the biggest problem is the general public can be ignorant. As always most of these products are a "Work in progress" I'm sure everything will come to fruition.An interesting review, but take a look at the 60-odd pages on myhumax.org discussing the Aura. There are plenty of issues out there, which the review didn’t cover.
Mine has 2 hours on screen at once.UI still looks pretty poor, especially the program guide - only 7 channels at a time, only 1 1/2 hours on screen at once, current 'live' stream (this is a negative), so much wasted space and limited functionality. We don't all have 20 inch TVs these days Humax.
What I do not understand is how you can describe the features of the app when it is not available, so you can not have verified them, and they keep putting the release date back so they obviously can't get it to work.
Maybe the app is in "Alpha" mode because the PVR is certainly only at "pre-Beta" stage it has so many bugs!
I bought mine direct from Humax - the app was promised last November - IF they can't deliver it by the end of January I will be returning the whole lot for a refund - NOT as described or fit for purpose at the moment.
The Aura app is now available to download from Google Play. Now all I have to do is add my Aura box to be able to use the app! I tried several times earlier this morning with no success. I must have another go during my lunch break...
I can't see it, what is it called tried Humax, Aura and both of them. Unless it was there, didn't work, then recalled???
I have the app and can see and use all aspects apart from the TV guide...I found it now, I dont know why it wasnt there before. Maybe because I had the play store already open!
Closing and reopening sorted it.
Now I have it ........ Im a bit underwhelmed!
Rolling out over the next few days... Humax Aura « My Humax ForumThere's a firmware update for the Aura available now, I have just downloaded it....
Release notes say it adds FTP server capability, amongst other things
It adds auto refresh rate switching, and says it fixes some of the bugs like the live TV app crashing,
It also enables the remote to control TV volume directly.
