“Humax FoxT2 Freeview HDR PVR”

Written on: 06/02/2013 by Chris at sandhurst (28 reviews written)

Purchased for the changeover so we could carry on recording TV programs now the old analogue VCR is redundant. Absolutely delighted with this once we got it set up. Bit fiddly to get going initially but really easy once you get the hang of it. Especially like the features allowing you to record a whole series with a couple of button pushes! Playback excelent, and 500gb is ample for us. Lots more features we havent used yet, like networking etc… Read Full Review

“The best machine out there in its class”

Written on: 02/04/2012 by Komutt (5 reviews written)

I have loved humax PVR's i have owned 3 now. The latest model is my favorite so far. Crystal clear oictures, east to use and very functionable. Ok so the portal hasnt delivered sky player yet as promised by humax, however do a google search for hummy tv and you will get access to a wealth of customised firmware which includes sky, also a decryption program allows you to save programs (hd) from the box and play an any other device. Forgot to set a recording, dont worry you can access your… Read Full Review

“Best on the market”

Written on: 23/03/2012 by Daz69 (1 review written)

As the title says, yes, this is the best on the market. All the others seem to lack one thing or another. Some have got more smart tv for instance but start up and channel changing plus upload of tv guide is poor (very slow), some have "what you think" very good hd picture until you put it on the same tv as the humax (believe me, you WILL see the difference, it surprised me as well) and last of all, the most important thing, the price. Most of the HD pvrs retail around the £300 mark, like the… Read Full Review

“It is all too easy to say that something you once had...”

Written on: 18/03/2011 by diablo944 (16 reviews written)

It is all too easy to say that something you once had is better as it never failed, or better as it had more options. With Tivo US killing off the series one Tivos in the UK in June we needed something to take care of our freeview recordings. Nothing comes close to beating the Tivo EPG, but trying to give an informed judgement on a new box means discounting all experience with the Ultra reliable Tivo which served us for ten years without failure....

I have to start with this single Tivo… Read Full Review

We've gone tha same route (TIVO to Humax) and agree with most of the above. I have successfully archived a program to a USB stick and played on the laptop with Windows Media Player. Firmware update is June (OTA).

Nreview's Response to diablo944's Review

Written on: 21/09/2011

This review pretty much sums it up. A couple of points missed;

It is a dual tuner, so one can theoretically record two programs at the same time and watch one of those channels (or a pre-recorded program) however it almost seems to have 2.5 tuners in that you can record two channels at the same time and then, depending on the channels you are recording watch a 3rd channel. It's hard to work out what channels you will be allowed to watch on this third (or 1/2) tuner but is dependent on the other channels that are recording. This is not a negative point as an extra 1/2 tuner (however random) is better than just the two.

The other point which is a negative is the TV portal. You have to buy a dongle which when I bought cost about £25 and came from Germany. It is very temperamental although that may be down to be internet connection. Regardless the only channels presently that can be received through the TV portal are BBCi and Wikipedia and so is an almost pointless feature. Hopefully they will resolve this soon.

I'd give this product a 8.5/10
