Upgrade your TV to Smart, in an instant, with the Humax H3.


Smart functions - for any TV

If you fancy the features of a Smart TV without changing your telly, then the Humax H3 is the easy answer. Simply connect up via HDMI and you can enjoy a range of apps and content streaming - just like with the best Smart TVs. Using an app like YouTube lets you enjoy the vast array of video out there - all from the comfort of watching on your TV's big screen.

Playback from other sources with the Humax Media Player (DLNA)
Using the Humax CAST app you can take control of all the music, photos and video on your network. Thanks to DLNA compatibility, the H3 lets you stream content that's stored on other devices - such as your PC, laptop or NAS (Network Attached Storage) drive. With DLNA you can view photos stored on your computer on the big screen or watch videos sent from your laptop - all without the need for any extra cables.

Connect via Wi-Fi. Operate from your smartphone
With built-in Wi-Fi, it's easy to hook up to your home network hub. For a more stable connection, an Ethernet connection is also provided. Although the H3 comes with a basic remote you can upgrade the experience by downloading Humax's CAST app for your smartphone or tablet. Available for both Android and Apple iOS, the app lets you enter text and use your smartphone as a mouse pointer touch pad. It also makes casting content directly to your TV easy.

Hook up to your music system
As well as an HDMI socket for connecting to your TV, the H3 also comes with an optical digital output. This is ideal for connecting up to your digital music system. Nearly all AV receivers and many amps and systems feature an optical digital input, letting you enjoy crisp and immersive sound through your music system, rather than the TV's tinny-sounding speakers.

Not your average 'black box'
Fitting easily in the palm of your hand, the H3 is compact and easy to find a home for. The smart 'Espresso' finish also makes a refreshing change from the usual 'black box'.

Make any TV a smarter TV, with this great little box of tricks.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great idea, but poor implementation Bought this with a Humax 5000T recorder to stream live TV and recordings to a separate AV room. But severe dropout problems when streaming this way. Was using Virgin Hub 3 router and direct Ethernet connection, but Virgin and Humax could not sort it , so now using ASUS router driven by the Virgin as a modem only and it works. H3 interface is way too simple and should work like the 5000T. But I understand this is the only way to stream recordings to another room.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Great picture, shame about the interface and UI Bought together with FVP-5000 to update a Fox-T2 that we have had for a number of years (just coming up to it's third hard disk). Initial impressions good, but on further use, the software is very very flaky in use - go once into a menu, and the next time it will be different. The DLNA and Network player options look neat, but there is no detail on how to set it up - ie use full url like //server/share/folder, or smb://server/share/folder, etc. I have not been able to get this to reliably see network share at all, and I am used to administering networks. on the one occasion I did see the network, I just had "samba share" selected, but no server name, and no user - this appeared to get me onto the network, where I could see the workgroup, but navigating any lower than the server was impossible. also DLNA doesn't work very well, and with Win10 pc on the network, the FVP5000 was no longer visible on the network through DLNA. Honestly, the User Interface is so bad that it is almost unusable, and the lag between telling the box to do something on the remote and actually doing it is ridiculous. Makes the whole process of using the box so tedious and cumbersome, not to mention frustrating. Seems Humax have pushed this out without full testing, and with nothing by way of technical documentation or support to be able to use it. They also haven't responded to tech support request via website, even just to acknowledge. I'm going to run with it a while to see if the initial stability issues "improve" or become less cumbersome when it's up and running. Unfortunately the experience so far makes me wish I'd just bought a second PVR instead. If the reliability doesn't improve, the whole lot is going back, FVP500 and the H3, as it was only bought as an integrated solution to my media needs. by the way, if anyone at all understands what the syntax is for adding a samba or other network share, then please post it, the Humax FAQ is about as useful as a chocolate teapot.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Initially it was unstable I agree with the other reviewer but suggest he uses the TV+ with his recordings. Humax told me to do this and it worked better. However I have had issues and up until Tuesday this week I was going to send it back. I suspect Humax released this box with unfinished software. Since wednesday this week, I have been able to play my recordings without a problem. I did a factory reset and then reset the server settings on my FVP4000t. I also suspect that Humax sent out a patch to repair dodgy software.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Only partially works I purchased the H3 to play programmes recorded on my Humax fvp-4000t Pvr in another room using the DLNA facility on the H3 but it does not work even though both Humax devices are connected to my router. I have been in contact with Humax who have been patient and helpful but as yet no solution has been found. Most other features on the H3 appear to work. The problem could be with my router but I don't think so because the H3 did work correctly in conjunction with my Humax fvp-4000t on two brief occasions. I live in hope of a solution, then I can recommend the H3.
