Conclusion: Overall, Humax have done a great job adding this functionality, not only to new purchasers of the PVR-9200T, but also to existing users of what is an almost two year old device. We’d love to see this level of support from all other manufacturers of high tech kit in a fast moving environment.
Pros: Series link gives Sky+ functionality without the monthly subscription, dual tuners allow recording of one channel while you watch a 2nd, easy to use menus, excellent picture quality
Cons: The quality of the series functionality is only as good as the information transmitted by the broadcasters, so you sometimes miss the end of programs, slow EPG programming still persists
Conclusion: Priced at around £200, the Humax is reasonable value for a PVR with these sorts of features, and is a worthy investment if you’ll taken advantage of them. In comparison to a standard Freeview box you’re looking at paying around £150 extra for the convenience of time-shifting and record, but any that...
Pros: 160GB hard drive for up to around 90 hours of recording, dual-tuner, very easy to use
Cons: No component output, DVD player or card reader, minus points for aesthetics
