Note Note: The packages on this page are now considered as non-current, they have been superseded by the New Portal. These packages lost a lot of their functionality when Humax introduced the App. based TV portal and Version 1.03.06 firmware.

Portal Xtra1

The Portal Xtra1 Package was the second generation of the original Custom TV Portal, It incorporated all the functions of the original Custom TV Portal and also had extra features

The Portal Xtra1 package cannot be installed at the same time as the original Custom TV Portal, it is compatible with the custom-portal plugin architecture, so the foscam plug-in works with this too.

How do I enable the Custom TV Portal?

It can be installed from the Standard Web-If Package Management list
