Excerpt: I purchased the Humax 9200T PVR (Personal Video Recorder) about two years ago, for the bargain price of £160, online. It's revolutionised TV watching, it's been so useful to be able to record programmes and watch them when you fancy, and to rapidly fast forward through adverts, or pause when the...
Excerpt: On a whole this is an excellent PVR set top box. It works very reliably and records a large number of data. I think it is quoted as being able to record around 30 hours of stuff which isn't too bad, however by todays standards the hard drives are a little larger now.
Summary: Worked like a dream when new, but over last year the unit freezes and will not allow any changes to channel selection, preset recordings don't always take place, or unit keeps recording on one channel all night long. When unit is working the time to change channels gets longer as time goes by.
Pros: being able to record 2 channels and watch 3rd (depending on channel)
It's a good box, but it's certainly not finished. Think of it like a beta.

Excerpt: We bought the PVR 9200T, essentially, as it had been recommended by The Gadget Show on Five (who generally know what they're talking about). Unfortunately though, the box hasn't quite lived up to its reputation. First, the good points. The picture quality is actually very good.
A great machine when it works, sadly fails too often

Excerpt: I bought this on a recommendation. I also recommended the machine to someone else. So we are talking three machines here. The one belonging to my friend who recommended it. The one I bought. The one belonging to the friend who I recommended it to. One has been back for repair.
Excerpt: HUMAX 9200TB I had previously been using my PC's TV card to watch and record Freeview programmes but in order to schedule recordings, I had to leave my PC on all the time, which I don't like doing. To combat this, I decided to get the Humax 9200TB Freeview PVR (Personal Video Recorder).
Excerpt: I have used the PVR for 3 years now and it is an amazing PVR for recording from Freeview. The features on it are excellent. You can record 2 programmes at the same time and watch a recorded one, or record one programme and carry on watching live TV.
Summary: Fairly easy to operate after initial learning curve.Edit function is good where you can select a portion of a recording to keep & then delete the rest of the recording thus saving hard disc space.
Pros: Picture quality,reliability.
Cons: Remote could be laid-out better & is a bit big.
