Review of "Humax MG-TU1"
This review is done by a professional tester who loves testing different applications on Freeview STBs in his free time.I have developed certain test cases for testing the STBs and evaluating the results vis a vis different STBs availaible in the market. The following are the test results
1. Initialization: This is the first phase of testing done and is called as Initialization. The results are from basic test like booting the STB and allowing it to Load the programme/Applications and the initial tests around it. The results are given below1.1 Loading Check ---Time taken for loading the welcome screen Less then 20sec (normal standard is 20 Seconds)
1.2 Arrow keys Press the arrow keys while loading: up, down, left, right. It runs pretty well
1.3 MENU Key----Press MENU----- Exits app; displays resident software Main Menu. Which is pretty good
1.4 GUIDE Key----Press GUIDE ----Exits app; displays well
1.5 EPG.Power key---Press Power---Turn off STB: Passes well
1.6 Remote button '0'-'9'---Press '0'-'9' ----No effect: Passes well
1.7Color key---Press the color key No effect----Passes well
1.8 INFO key---Press INFO ---Channel Information shows up good
Picture is clear and channel change is almost instant.Interactive services load very quick compared to the nokia mediamaster on digital box .EPG is fantastic no need to buy a cretain saturday paper for telly mag again.Have only had slight picture break up but not serious.Only gripe is that i lost top up for 2 days after change over (all back to normal now) i also like the fact that it comes with a 2 year warranty as standard is very small and so simple to use even kids can change channel without having to ask what to do.2. Screen testing: Screen testing is the last and final testing where the screen is tested using the Remote control. This gives us a and performance of a STB with respect to its Remote Keys, Arrow keys, EPG loading speed, Interactive application speed, Red Keys, pop ups functions etc.
2.1 Banner ---Check for Banners at the Top and iFrame at bottom----It pasees well.
2.2 Default focus---Focus on first menu item--- Passes well
2.3 Loading---Average load time other than the first time. Loads is less then 2 seconds.
2.4 SELECT key----Press SELECT ---Corresponding screen is loaded.
2.5 Arrow keys----Press the up, down arrow keys----Moves the selection on the menu items.
