Have had the Humax for a couple of years and find the recording quality excellent. Twin tuner is essential and the reason I bought it.
Have lost all my recorded programmes on my Humax PVR on at least three occasions when the system freezes and was forced to reformat the drive to continue. It has also frozen on a few occasions when powering off/on was sufficient to start it again. The latest problem is that it stopped recording both manually and automatically and again I had to reformat the drive to get it recording again. Keep losing the end of programmes as it doesn't track them properly and the 10mins extra isn't enough. To be sure of recording a full programme you need to record the programme coming on afterwards.
Without the 'bad points' I do like the Humax box and it has taught me not to get too het up when I lose recorded programmes.
There are more important things in life!
