Hello and welcome to JustAnswer, an independent Question & Answer web portal.
I'm Maria Nina, your tech expert for today.
Sorry to hear you're having issues with your remote. Hopefully we can sort this out quickly.

If you cannot control your Humax with it's remote control you should check that the remote control is in PVR mode. The PVR button should light up red whenever you press any other button on the remote control.

If either the TV, DVD or AUDIO buttons light up you need to press the PVR button once to switch the remote control to PVR mode.

If no buttons light up, or all 4 buttons are repeatedly flashing one after the other, you need to replace the batteries with some fresh AA batteries.

Whichever button I press the TV button lights up

Using the PVR button doesn’t change anything.

Try taking the batteries out of the remote, then press 0 and OK for 30 seconds, replace batteries and try again.
