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: 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.

Pros: Customised Firmware, general good build quality
Cons: Expensive, limited on what video formats it will play
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.

Pros: Excellent image quality, TV Guide is clear and easy to navigate, Very easy to set up, Remote control is easy to use
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.
