Summary: Further to my previous comment on 11th December 2012 and after reading other comments and reviews, I took my Firefox Back to my supplier. Within 12 Hours they had cleared it down for me to Reinstall. This I did ' Well it loaded in a few minutes and now carries out all of the functions absolutetly to the Letter. I can only assume that Either Samsung TV and Humax did not hit it off first go. Hwever I am Delighted. Thanks Humax.
Summary: Bought a nice Samsung HD TV. Excellent throughout. Bought HDRFOXT2. Easy to operate but my signal strength was reduced. The picture became washy and the sound was reduced a bit. I have checked signal strength for TV Good. But through Fox box No good. All of my cables and connections are good. Is anybody else disapointed?.
Cons: It downgrades my sgnal . Al chanels above nine are weak when played through this box
Summary: Great device for those not wishing to subscribe to Sky or Virgin services. Although a large initial outlay I believe the PVR is worth every penny. Particularly when you visit www.hummy.tv for the information on the customised firmware. This gives the device additional features, such as remote scheduled recording, a web interface, a bit torrent client, iPhone interface, Sky Player, News Ticker, access to network storage devices (if you have media stored on your desktop,...
Pros: Customised Firmware, general good build quality
Cons: Expensive, limited on what video formats it will play
Summary: Somewhat disappointed after previous 9300. expected improvement to the awareness of recording as with other machines. display is unreadable unless on your knees in front of unit. Needs the red light when recording whether in standby or not.
Pros: great hd picture
Cons: display unreadable. red recording light does not operate in standby
Summary: After much research I'd shortlisted this box (Humax HDR-FOX T2) and read various forums and reviews before finally purchasing in Sept 2011. I was put off buying all the earlier PVRs because of widely reported problems/crashes with the boxes, fortunately I've not experienced one issue with the FOX T2 so far, it seems most gremlins have been ironed out. Firstly it's absolutely simplicity itself to set-up.
Pros: Excellent image quality, TV Guide is clear and easy to navigate, Very easy to set up, Remote control is easy to use
Summary: No noticeable problems so far - 2 weeks ownership. No HD in area yet, so I was surprised that CVBS video out is better than RGB, but this is explained in another forum - nothing to do with Humax. I prefer SCART over HDMI at present because TV switches channels automatically with SCART device so I don't have to select the source on the TV. Francis C Worrall said he couldn't remove TV voice over. Not sure what he meant, but the Mute button is top left of remote.
Pros: Accurate Series Recording, picture quality, easy to use
Cons: Dull display in standby, brighter scrolling during playback can't be turned off
Summary: Had some trouble first time round, managed to iron them out, picture quite good, but the sound having to be turned up full on unit is a step back, when you switch back to TV the TV set is loud, normal viewing TV on sound 20, watching a recording TV sound 25, hand set very big, unit very quiet when on, the clock and message on front too small and wrong colour may as well been left off much use as a chocolate fire guard, over all pleased better than the Sony that kept...
Pros: record whole series, good start up, plenty of storage
Cons: too much plumbing got to scroll through too much, hand set could have been better layout, sound.
Summary: Picture not what i expected, sound poor you have to turn sound up to full on unit and then turn sound up on TV (Sony full HD 1080p new model) the more the plumbing the easier it is to stuff it up menu far too long winded, set it up had to rescan 3 times missed channels, got latest software from Humax a doddle to install, not helped, picture keeps freezing or braking down says poor signal, run diagnostic on aerial strength 100% no problem with TV or my old Panasonic...
Summary: Without doubt a great device out of the box, but to see this thing really doing some good stuff try the Customised Functions available from the clever people at www.hummy.tv - then it does everything Humax wish they'd put on the box in the first place AND everything all the other PVR manufacturers are wishing it didn't.
Pros: Great picture, nice navigation, play to/from home network
Cons: Not a lot - in fact once it's customised nothing at all.
