Summary: The on Demand content only had BBCi Player. The ITV Player does not work. On the whole its ok. Wish I had got the HDR 1000S Model. as this is include freetime and much more on demand content. I got a used model and it did not include any instructions.
Summary: Bought as a replacement for Sky. Interface not as good as Sky's Good storage Does more stuff than Sky, e.g. Has a search facility for programs and can get iplayer and other Internet players. Slow to startup.
Summary: On initial set up, it just froze. I was ready to send it back! Took a long time to settle down and do as it was asked. Still plays up on the odd occasion, and refuses to save all the channels. Saves most, but some keep disapearing, so have to keep retuning.
Summary: I've had Sky + almost since it was introduced, and having read the reviews for the Humax FreeSat Box, and getting fed up paying the £60 a month to Sky I switched over. However i've got to say its not quite as good for a few reasons.
Summary: I'm a long-term Sky customer who got fed up with their exorbitant fees for just basic channels that are free elsewhere. This box is very average, and I'll explain why (and yes, I have the latest firmware). THE BAD The remote control is just awful. I counted 56 buttons. 56!
Summary: This is a review of the Humax Foxsat-hdr, not a Freesat review or a guide to installing a sat dish ect.. One thing I was critical of initially was the cost. Why is this unit so much more expensive than the practically identical Freeview version? Possibly Freesat licence issues.
Summary: One major problem with this otherwise excellent PVR can occur when you try to record two programs with an overlap. Sometimes a message appears that there is a program conflict which prevents recording the two programs.
Excerpt: We bought this box instead of Sky as it was a one off payment for free satellite TV including high definition channels. We had it installed by a company and it did look slightly complicating, so I'd recommend having it installed by others and not bothering to try yourself.
Summary: Generally I am very pleased with the product. However, there is one important missing feature that I find bizarre. It is not possible to set the PVR to record a program in the future on a non-Freesat channel! One of the main reasons for buying this product is that there are two lnb inputs.
