Free remote record app for freesat, Includes remote control too! NOW RELEASED!!

20
Found 13th Jan 2014
Just accessed recordings on my Humax HDR-1000s and got an advert to show that they will be releasing a remote record app later this month.

iOS only at the moment, android is apparently in the works but I think it's a nice freebie.

Hopefully its a nice heads up for all those out there on freesat. Not sure of what boxes this will run on but as the Humax HDR-1000s was advertising it, one can only assume it will run on this!

Cheers

*EDIT* Companion app to control your device with your phone/tablet is also included! See more in this link here: freesat.co.uk/pag…ate

Just found a little bit more information on this: freesat.co.uk/pag…ate

Looks like it might only be the Humax boxes for now.

I wonder if it will work with the HB-1000s with a USB hard drive plugged in?

Looking at the forums earlier, I think it will. If you do an update if it has not updated already, and go to recordings afterwards, do you get the advert for the app?

Im not saying this is definitive, but it would be a good indicator!

Thanks

Shame it's not on the Freeview HD box too

I don't have it yet, I have the humax foxsat hdr but after a while it just stops working (no signal). So thinking of getting one.

Maybe try it in store if you can before you buy?

Cant remember the difference in price now but I can highly recommend the HDR-1000s.

Id imagine as ever and like the BBC, developing for iOS is easier than Android due to the number of devices/software versions available. That said it would be nice.

However, if I read between the lines, you will get a freesat id to tie to your box and login with. If you can do it on iOS, you may be able to do it with a browser. Therefore while not exactly brilliant, there may be a way to do it with and android device.


I am speculating though, so bear that in mind!

The flash message on the Humax HDR1000s is bordering on VERY ANNOYING as there does not seem to be a button on the remote that will cancel it

The title needs updating to say Humax.

Freesat make no direct mention that this is only ever going to be for Humax. I do make reference to the fact it appears to be for Humax for now.

I think making freesat users aware it exists at the moment is the main goal.

If you have not already seen the title change, its now available to get in the app store! It includes remote control of the box as well. Nice one Freesat!

Enjoy everyone!

Cheers

Good find, and to extend the information a little, YouView has got an app for Android (possibly IOS too from memory) and work very well!

Actually it's the opposite - it's a lot harder to code for, and have an app accepted on iOS so developers tend to get the more difficult one out of the way and then develop the easier Android app second.

Looks like we might both be right, and wrong!

Not to open up a debate about it but I remember reading this some time ago, so fished it out if you are interested.
