Summary: Our Sony Recorder that we had for a number of years finally 'gave up the ghost'. After an initial panic we decided on the Humax HDR-Fox T2 to be the replacement. It was easy to set up and being able to record two programmes whereas the old only could offer one, is a real bonus. Would recommend it.
Summary: All the reviews, including technical experts rated it as one of the best machines around. Unfortunately for me, it seemed to be missing it's 500GB hard drive.It had to be a one off, so I returned it in the hope of exchanging it for an exact same model,but they were out of stock! So with my refund off I went to where I knew they had this machine in stock. I've now had it a couple of weeks, and so far it's living up to my expectations, hence my 5 star rating.
Summary: Having researched the Humax HDR-Fox T2 I bought it as it had good reviews and I can honestly say it is very good,didn't take long to get the hang of the controls, free HD and it prompts you when there is an alternative to the channel you are watching to press the ok button and it puts it straight on to HD, great and no monthly payments as well, I was actually told by someone who deals with electronics that I had made the right choice.
Summary: We bought this excellent Freeview box to replace our Sky box. Excellent picture, sound and loads of connections HDMI, Scart, Phono to name a few. Very simple on screen menu and a nice channel guide. The box has a twin tuner and can record two programmes at the same time and pause live TV. The box is almost as big and heavy as the old Sky box but is pleasing to the eye. We connected it to our roof aerial and did a channel search.
Summary: So far we are delighted with this Humax recorder. We have had various types of recorder and this one seems to be the most efficient. Recommended by a relative who has also found it to be very reliable. Easy to programme and to set up.
Summary: Needed this recorder to supplement the Sky box, as we record most stuff that we want to watch, rather than watch tv live. Very simple to set up. The on-screen display took a bit of getting used to, as it's so different from our Sky box but still easy to use. Definitely a good buy and one that we have already got good use from.
Summary: This is the 3rd Humax box we have bought over the years - 2 FreeSat and this Freeview box. Like the others it worked straight out of the box and despite living in a 'fringe' area for Freeview it gave good reception on all of the principal channels. Recording is easy and seems to be accurate timings.
