Summary: The Portal - the arena that gives access to BBCiPlayer and Youube, etc went down over a month ago. I contacted Humax and they say they are working on it. I purchased this primarily for the portal access. AVOID HUMAX like the plague. Unreliable, disgraceful aftercare.
Summary: This was a disastrous purchase. It has been returned with all the return postal costs to my purse. Despite 4 phone calls to the helpline, the recording system did not work. The online answers did not help. Have now bought the DTR-T1000 'YouView' system which has its bear traps.
Summary: I bought one of these units via Huumax direct sales. I wish I bought it via Amazon. I managed to get the unit set up and tuned etc. But I then had a problem that on initial switch on the most likely results were either no picture or a pink picture.
Summary: Having read the reviews of this product (and others) on the Amazon website, I came to the conclusion that the Humax box would be the one to have, IF Humax lived up to their promise to issue a software upgrade to fix all the niggling issues with the product.
Summary: I discovered an inherent fault on the box which results in sound being delivered via the Left channel/speaker only. When I tried to correct this in the settings menu it reverted back to the left channel/speaker very time I switched program.
Summary: I bought the Humax HD-Fox T2 from amazon. As usual the item arrived quickly. I immediately unpacked and set up the box. Everything worked well except for one important aspect. The volume output was at least half of everything else that I attach to my tv. I found this to be unacceptable.
Summary: Change channel and the sound becomes L L even if it has been set to be L R. Unlike the other reviewer who returned his to Richer Sounds, I'm keeping mine. Humax know of the problem and will release an OTA fix eventually although no date has been set as at 30/3/10.
