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.
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.
Excerpt: I recently bought this freeview player as my old one packed up and I am so glad I did! The Humax 9200TB is a basically a freeview player that has a built in hard drive. For anyone that has ever heard or used Sky + then this is exactly the same thing.
Summary: After running with Sky and a DVD recorder this is fantastic, it is slow in gathering all the programme data but I turn it on before I need the EPG and then a full week or more is loaded when I want it.
Great value, great performance and very easy to use.

Excerpt: Having read lesmo's reveiw I just thought I'd add my comments. First let me state that I do not own this machine, but my father in law does. I had purchased a Sony DVD Recorder/DVR/Freeview tuner which the father in law liked.
Summary: This product will revolutionise your television viewing. It is dead easy to use and has plenty of space for recordings. The add fast forward button is great, as is the ability to record on a weekly/daily basis. Cons?
Pros: Never miss any show ever again. Or watch pointless ads.
Cons: Due to programming shifts can sometimes miss the last two minutes of a programme leaving you feeling cheated.
Excerpt: We bought our Humax PVR-9200T not long after moving into our new house in December 2005. We decided on the Humax PVR as it came with a Freeview set up and the facility to record programmes along with a host of other minor functions.
