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. After about 10 goes at switching it on, it would finally give me a proper picture over HDMI. I tried different HDMI leads and different HDMI inputs and tried different turn on sequences.
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. It meant me turning the volume on my tv up to near maximum just for this box. TV's are not meant to work that way. The sound became slightly fuzzy.
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. I'd describe Humax support as unconcerned and almost offhand when I spoke to them.
