  • 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...
  • 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.

Good but with annoyances

  • Summary: Bought the first one about three months ago from JL (slightly cheaper at the time). Failed after a month, Humax did try and help but to no avail, so the box was replaced by JL. Second one appears to be fine and has lots of good points.

HDR FOX T2 - Stretching Freeview To The Humaximum

BNibbles, Ciao

  • Excerpt: NEVER SAY ‘NEVER AGAIN’ It’s official. I am indeed a Freeview+ set-top box fetishist. I’m now losing count of how many I’ve written about in the past, (he tries adding up on fingers and wishes he was a Chrysalid).
  • Pros: Versatile PVR with HD Freeview and internet access for iPlayer etc
  • Cons: Will 500 gbytes be big enough .  Some aspects of underachievement to be addressed

Good for the money, slow box, un-intuitive remote.

  • Summary: The remote selecting between tv and pvr just to turn the TV on and then access the system is just clunky. Great amount of storage for the money but nothing inspiring happening here unfortunately.

Just about good enough, but cannot be used with Auto HDMI switchers

  • Summary: Struggled with this for 6 months and have had to rip it out and sell it now. I only have 2 HDMI ports on my TV for Sky, Apple TV, Bluray and the Humax so have tried various HDMI switchers.

The best is not perfect.

  • Summary: This machine has very much going for it and it is a shame that some of it's most annoying faults are caused by the firmware. Some reviewers say it doesn't freeze and some do. Mine certainly freezes all too often.

Humax - great idea but slow response times frustrate

rogerb, Amazon

  • Summary: From West Wales. The Humax is a good idea and worth having. Storage of programmes is well organised and clear. The buttons on the control are very small and the lettering is so small one almost needs a magnifying glass to read them.
