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. This isn't too much of a problem if like me, you record something then when you've watched it you simply delete it, however if you want to keep stuff you rapidly begin to run short on space!
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. The box has series link so you will never need to miss a programme again and can record TV and radio.
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. Firstly if you were to look at the box itself then it is certainly something you will easily forget. It is a big black square box essentially! It is not overly attractive at all.
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. The picture is excellent, the logic simple to use, it is a joy to own and use, it's a pity there are not more good TV programmes to watch with 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. However he did not feel the need to have a machine that recorded DVD's, so after some research via the internet he narrowed his choice down this Humax machine.
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? Missing end of programmes (although this is supposed to have been sorted with the new software - just need to update mine!) No series record option. Thats it! Overall a fantastic product that changes the way you watch tv.
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. For those of you in the dark ages or still on analogue TV, PVR stands for 'Personal Video Recorder' and is essentially a computer type hard drive contained in a TV receiver box.
