    Hi,
    I have two new set-top boxes made by Humax. These are the HDR Fox-T2 and the HD Fox-T2. I wish these to be able to communicate through my wireless home network in such a way that the HD Fox-T2 can download (watch) programmes saved on the HDR Fox-T2 and both be able to independently view files (eg pictures) saved on my main PC. From what I read about these Humax prodicts this 'should' be possible. My knowledge of the networking is limited so please try to be gentle with any advice! I presume that I will need a WAP on each box, but what settings to use to allow the home network and the Humax boxes to both recognise them is beyond me.
    Regards.
    John.

    I have a HDR-FOX-T2 and have it connected to the Intenet via a WAP - I used the Edimax EW-7209APg WAP , as it have 5 ethernet posts and so I could use the one device to connect the PVR and also connect the TV
    it works very well

    I have a server on the router and can access media, videos, music, pictures etc and works well, also using veracast on the TV

    I have just recently started to play with TVersity as a media server, which also does file conversion on the fly to play FLV files - although still very early days

    I dont think you can stream between devices - this is the planned update for the HDR - now due in January !!! but dont hold your breath this has been due for release since about September

    Theres a useful thread running at avforums on this device - its up to part 4 and some very long posts - but I think in part two was the edimax discussion and how to set up
