suggestions please (freesat?)


Novice Member
Hi guys,

I've used the foxsat-hdr custom firmware for a long time. It's amazing, thanks for all your time and effort! My setup consists of 2 HDR boxes and a server, all linked via NASmount. This work perfectly at home and as I have to travel regularly I can move programs to watch when I'm away.

I have an apartment in the UAE, where I have a WD Livetv box which is quite unreliable (freezes regularly, doesn't like large USB drives). I'd like to replace this.

The question is, will a new Humax freesat recorder work without a satellite connection? I won't be using it to record, but transfering to the HDD or pluging in a USB drive. I'm open to other suggestions, but I like Humax as these boxes have been bulletproof.

Many thanks.
