Get the official TiVo!

Gadgester, Amazon
10 April 2006
  • Summary: The Humax T800 is a poor clone of the official TiVo box, and costs three times as much! It's from a no-name company that may not be around a few months from now. The machine is noisy and makes you worry about whether the hard drive will go south any second.

would like input from other owners

Kevin Bartus, Amazon
7 April 2006
  • Summary: I have two of these units, bought about a year apart, set up on completely different televisions and systems. BOTH of them appear to create vertical lines on the screen, especially evident in red backgrounds. Anyone else have this issue?

  • Summary: The tivo part still works but the first thing that broke was the dvd burning part. Then 4 months later the dvd stopped playing dvds. Get a normal Tivo. They are grea this company is very poor. I will never buy a Humax anything ever again.

There are two versions of this TiVo

I. Leong, Amazon
22 March 2006
  • Summary: Evidently, TiVo got Humax (a Korean company) started in introducing their TiVo by manufacturing them first on the same assembly line. These are marked "Made in Mexico." On a receint visit to Circuit City, I saw four boxed examples of this TiVo on the shelf.

Image quality is very poor.......

Michael D. Adams, Amazon
17 March 2006
  • Summary: Where do I start? first off....I have 3 tivo's, two regular and this humax....when i first had the humax hooked up, i noticed the picture looked almost like it was breaking up, it was on a CRT TV and hooked up using an s-video so i blamed the problem on this.

hum... not so sure

Anonymous, Newegg
11 January 2006
  • Summary: Tivo's 30min - 1hour hold times are lame. You have problems be prepared to stay on hold. There customer service reps are poor and there phone service that you have to talk to is ... too much to even say.
  • Pros: Tivo / DVR / DVD recorder is cool- Hands down. Cant think of anything better then being able to pause live tv / record shows etc...
  • Cons: Mine did not work. The remote is very poor and as I have researched online it isnt only me having problems. They try to blame it on your remotes in the house etc... No,its this machine. The menu system is a bit laggy as well.
