A Smart TV is the ultimate entertainment for this connected age. They can play videos from the Internet, including BBC iPlayer, or show off content from your smartphone or tablet on the big screen.
DLNA is a system that lets devices that store media - such as laptops, smartphones and tablets - beam videos, music or photos to devices that can play it, like your Blu-ray player, AV receiver or TV.
If you have a wireless network at home, this unit can hook up to it straight away, without you having to connect additional cables or buy a "dongle" or other accessory.
With TVs getting smarter all the time, they need more powerful brains. This model features a quad core processor so all functions are super quick.
Often referred to as Full HD, 1080p is to the most common HD quality signal used on Blu-ray discs and more. A 1080p TV or Projector shows every detail from these signals.
HDMI is the most common way to connect your devices. It can carry high definition picture, sound and even remote control commands between equipment.

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.

Initially it was unstableI 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.

Only partially worksI 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.
