1.2Mtr Polar MTG yes it has been on the arc for 25 years and is now fixed on 13 East using two pairs of rusty molegrips. Unlike me they never groan but always perform.

:-Welcome1 to the forum dredd2005
When it says waiting for Humax connection you need to switch to standby and then switch on again and the software will download. The update should then take place. In answer to your second question you can only download manufacturers updates from specific satellites. What satellites do you receive?

hi there

ty for the welcoming and answering your question

i did turn it off using the key on its back then re turn it on and i got same message
"waiting for humax connec"
then i turned it to stand by mood then re turned it on
and same message !!!!
the last update i had was " toh 3.2 " 2003

i did it in some receivers store , but this store moved to another location
and i dunno wot to do !:(

btw i used a connection cable that was usb 1 side (adapted to my laptop compaq presario) and a serial on the other side (adapted to my humax)
i mean to say by adapted "connected" then i used same cable connected to my laptop using its large serial port on its back and the serial connected to humax.
and then again i used same cable serial to serial (from desktop pc to humax directly)

i recieve hotbird , amos , eutel sat , nilesat , arab sat , astra 1 , and 2 turkish sats not to mention 1 iranian sat and 1 greec sat !
ty for ur help , i really appreciat :rolleyes:

I would certainly suggest a connectivity problem, I thought you had to use a null modem cable with a Humax. If you are unsure do a search on the site for humax null I did and I think there is sufficient info for you to manage. click here
BTW Just for clarity the website downloads are only for legal manufacturers software, for the special Toh patches you refer to these are not available via satellite and again if you read that thread you will find the source
