Summary: Bought 10/11/2007, set up was very simple and straight-forward. Delighted with the ease of use and how quick it will record on-demand, so much nicer than my Liteon DVD Recorded. However after just 7 days, I noticed that the screen keep going black for a split second, sometimes once and sometimes five or six times in a row. I went back to the TV and found nothing wrong with the same program.
Pros: Ease of Use, Quick Recording, Good Picture Quality
Summary: Overall this is a great unit, and my reason for only rating it 6 is due to its reliability problems. I have had 2 of these boxes, after the first one repeatedly froze during viewing live broadcasts or recording broadcasts, at least once a day. The fault was not a signal problem, just hardware or firmware. My second box is better but still likes to freeze up every now and then. Humax say they are aware of the fault, and will be releasing a firmware upgrade.
Pros: Great recording quality, quick fast-forward and rewind - 64x!
Cons: Picture can sometimes freeze, even with very strong signal
