Summary: Before we get stuck into the HD-FOX T2, a bit about Freeview HD. It's finally launched, but only in two areas of the UK – Manchester and central London. Don't fret, though: HD coverage should extend to around 50 per cent of the UK by the summer (see www.freeview.co.uk for more info). Currently four terrestrial channels – BBC HD, ITV HD, Channel 4 HD and S4C – are available, while Five HD should be available later this year.
Excerpt: This was the first Freeview HD box to market, and snaffled a five-star rating on its very first outing. Part of the appeal is that, unlike the other units whose USB and ethernet inputs currently lie dormant, this Humax is already DLNA compatible, meaning you can stream media files (including DivX Xvid, MPEG and JPEGs) from a PC or networked storage device through the box's ethernet socket.
