currys instore humax 9200t - £129.97 @Currys

I noticed on the pcworld website they had reduced the humax 9200t to £129.97 but didn't have it in stock or to reserve. I was speaking to a sales representative in currys about the above and he said Ill see how much they sell it. Cut a long story short he gave me a list of stores that had it as a display model in my area at the above price (product number is 192531). Buxton had 2 in stock btw

I had lots of trouble with the call centre trying to find if they did have it in stock. Went to the St Helens store after being told they had one and they had reserved me one but it wasn't there. Went and looked on display and it was displayed under the 9200tb model so you have to check. Result was a 9200t with 10% off for it being ex display.

Quick Question what is the difference between the 9200t and 9200ts?

thanks
Mike

I think the 'S' is to denote the silver version, though I may be wrong.

If you can get it for this price then go for it. Superb piece of kit.
#2
the 9200t is silver so i am confused.

I got it toay at st helens.

I was told the following stores had them
buxton
berry
altringham
southport

as i said tho the helpline is awful i rang up 15 times today every customer service rep didn't fill me with confidence

If you don't know what a PVR does You have been missing out. Record without tapes (or worse, DVDs*) and pause live tv to nip to the bog or just fast-forward through the ads. TiVo were the first gen and their interface is brilliant but their boxes are a bit old and slow now and only have one tuner. Humaxes are widely regarded to be the next best and have two tuners so you record one program while watching another. Is that what you needed to know?

*worse in terms of sheer fafferama, not picture quality I mean

The new software is due out next week 10am on Monday 14th January until 9am on Monday 21st January.

This is version 0.21 with will have group 2 of freeview playback options :)

Get a 9200 as soon as, as these machines are very good (beats my old digifusion!)

The 9200T is the original model and was only available in silver.
Then they brought out a black model (9200TB) and renamed the 9200T as 9200TS - but these versions had a newer version of the software (which had Freeview playback). You can update your 9200T to the latest software - but there is supposed to be an over the air update this month which will have Series Link.

Still confused?

EDIT : In response to benefits of a PVR - record whatever you want simply choosing from a program guide and watch when you want - skipping over adverts. Never need to watch live TV again.

I brought one of these two years ago and its brilliant...one of the best purchases I've made.
Well worth the £270 I paid at the time, and at this price its a great bargin...voted hot :thumbsup:
#10
I've been waiting for this price drop for two year. but now it is too little too late. I just bought a Sony RDR-HXD770 for £150 from Argos Thanks to HDUK. although it only have one digital tuner,but it have HDMI output socket that can upscale to 1080p, 120gb HD, dvd recorder, USB connection for picture and music, play DivX too. very happy with this.
#11
There are a number of these dotted around. I just called the Derby store and by giving him the PC World product code he could see it on his system for the same price and inform me which stores had them in stock. eg. There are 3 brand new ones in Leicester. I can get an ex-display one from Derby for £100 but I'm just waiting on a call back to tell me if the remote is with it.
#12
this is a hot hot price for the best peice of kit i have ever owned! Changes the way you watch TV from the moment it's out of the box! Great find! :¬)
#13
I've got a 9200T, paid £190 for it about 18 months ago. It's a brilliant bit of kit - totally changed the way I watch telly.

Also, it's got USB and you can (with a bit of faffing) transfer programmes off and put them onto DVD.

There's a fantastic community for the machine, based at http://www.hummy.org.uk

Am I right in thinking these do HD freeview when available?
H264 and mpeg 4 ready?

No idea re. HD / H.264 or MP4. Mine has component outs on the back, but I'd be unsure about those standards.

see http://www.digitalspy.co.uk/forums/showthread.php?t=595492
have vague memories of these being given to customers for the Beebs trial of hd over freeview from crystal palace transmitter last year/world cup 06.

I think I was confused with the Humax 2000

Still a good find and a a good price.
#17
These won't do high def when it comes BUT this is a great price (none coming up when I check). There are two standout machines, this one and the Topfield TF5800 - both superb.
#18
i would rather stick a broken bottle up my bottom than buy an electrical item from currys, dixons, or PC world !!!!

I read somewhere that the Guide layout was appauling. They've over done it with the size of text etc so it takes up too much space.
Nothing worse than a poorly designed UI... but I read that back in 2005 & can't find any recent pictures of it's UI. Anyone care to confirm what i've just said?

A firmware update about a year ago made the UI a fair bit better (1.00.10). Current firmware is 1.00.15 or 1.00.20 with 1.00.21 due imminently. I think originally the guide layout displayed 4 channels (with the channel currently tuned to at the top right) but after that update it now displays 5 channels. The update also made navigating the guide alot easier. It still would be nicer to see what's on on more channels simultaneously but guides I've seen that do so don't show you the channel you're currently tuned to.

I have Sky +. Is it worth while getting one of these machines, what can it do that sky+ cant ? What size hard drive do they have as my sky + 80GB fills up in no time at all.
#26
It has a 160gb hard drive theres newer model with 360gb HD

It can do what sky can do accept with freeview plus you dont loose the records unlike sky+ when you leave
#27

Forget HD freeview for a bit, here's pointer for something that might interest you
http://www.digitalradiotech.co.uk/articles/BBC-HD-channel-to-launch---but-may-be-delayed-on-Freeview.php
also, I bought one of these for my folks for xmas and think its entirely overrated - the remote control doesn't even control your tv so you will be using two, the pic quality is not as good under scrutiny as my Tvonics PVR (which's remote control does control the tv), the menus are disorganised whereas the TVonics is very intuitive, the only things going for the humax is that it can record two programs at once (which I haven't wanted to do yet) and has a USB port to get programs off and onto computers, if you can do without those features go for something like a TVonics which is joyfully simple to use.
One example - on the Humax to watch a recorded programme you click on 'menu' then on 'record' (yes 'record' not 'playback' or anything that makes sense), then select 'recorded programmes' then select the programme you want, it then starts playing in a little preview window and you hit 'exit' to go to the full screen again to watch it. On a TVonics you hit the 'library button' on the remote, select the one to watch, and click okay, you can also at the point select 'play from last stopped position' if you'd watched some of it already.

Funny how this question invariably gets asked in a PVR link. I think it should be put in the OP! :)
No PVR can record from external sources. You need something like a DVD recorder for that.

ok, my ignorance, i have V-Plus and a dbox so have never had to buy a dvd recorder or a PVR - I have every other gadget ever imaginable, but will shell out once the two are combined.

Not having a go at you at all... it just keeps coming up. And people want a DVD recorder with twin tuners... but they are different technologies. The PVR just records the signal as it is. The DVD recorder decodes it. The PVR therefore, all else being equal, should give a better picture. When a combined one does come it I guess it won't be cheap.

Went to Currys in Selly Oak tonight and they have the silver model at £129.99, reduced across all stores. The black model is still £179.99 and they wouldn't budge on the price as the codes are different. Didn't get one in the end as there was only an ex display silver model.

Exactly, these are discontinued stock at Curry's so they are getting rid of any they have. If you ring up a store, or the customer services number and give them the product no. 192531 they can check which stores have them in stock. A word of warning though, the stock system may be incorrect so it's worth calling the actual store before going down. (This was the case at Leicester, numbers available on saynoto0870)

On a side note, I managed to get empire direct to price match. As they didn't have any silver ones in stock they were going to put one on back order for me, but at the till the manager decided to let me have a black one. :-D

I forgot to say, this deal should not be expired yet.
