Summary: Bought this to replace a Sky box. Turned out to be a mistake. Seems to have a mind of it's own.Misses programmed recording on a regular basis.Was difficult to set up. Has frozen on a few occasions. Typical of modern technology.......rushed onto market before problems are sorted,with little back-up.
Summary: This unit is great as a single LNB channel machine. It will not allow you to record any 2 chosen channels. Once a channel is selected for recording it will only allow certain other channels to be viewed or recorded, it 'blanks' them out.
Pros: One off cost for box - no subscriptions required
Excerpt: Had mine for over 2 years. Got it when I quit $ky and have never looked back. iPlayer and ITV Player have been a great addition. HD Picture is great and the upscaled SD looks good as well. Sorry to here about the problems that the other reviewer has had but I have not see this at all.
Summary: As everyone on here has said, picture quality of this box is superb, even in SD it is better than that of the sky HD box. Once you get used to the convoluted menu system it is reasonably easy to use as well.
Summary: After a long wait we finally got the Humax HDR. Having used a Tivo for many years I had high expectations. Technically the box is very good, the picture quality is excellent as is the sound quality.
