These are simply fantastic. Don't regret dropping Sky (as I don't watch Sports). Benefits over Sky HD box - much bigger hard drive, supplied with universal remote, can tape 2 programmes and watch a third, uses much less power in standby and is whisper quiet. Recommended at £247. I paid £260 a few weeks ago from Spectrum TV but that came with a 2 year warranty.

Richer sounds will price match this and give you a 5 year cover for extra £22.95 delivered

If i buy this, will the Sky card still work with this and give me Freesat? Can't drop Sky altogether, as i have their "FREE" broadband. Heard this box is the best.

Cracking deal

I got this a couple of weeks ago as ive never had sky and didn't want to cross to the dark side......
I pricematched the richersounds price at comet as I have a cashback card that gets me another 5% off.
I love the features, the hard drive size and most of all the PQ!! Brilliant on SD.
That is a good job really because when I asked the installation engineer how many HD channels I would get he replied 2!!!! OMFG!!!
Realistically it's only one, (BBCHD) so I'm pretty gutted and want more HD content.

Occassionally ITV show some HD programmes worth watching, such as the UEFA Champions League Final on Wednesday and the FA Cup Final on Saturday, both in glorious HD. I expect that watching football in HD makes a big difference on larger screens than normal SD.

Don't know the answer to this one. There's plenty of forums covering this kind of thing. Freesat use the same satellite as Sky.

Agreed, Spectrum TV were faultless in their delivery and ordering. Nice and quick. I tried to order from Richer Sounds first, but I didn't understand their "price match with a smile" policy. I stopped smiling (and they did) when their price match price had to include NEXT DAY DELIVERY. I thought this was very mean and cancelled my order with Richer Sounds. I won't shop there again, though I do realise that forum members are pleased with them.

The Humax box does have a few "flaws" - the slightly PC style of media navigation (clunky), you have to point the remote directly at the box, the FAT32 only compatibility, etc. But, these are niggles, compared to the excellent picture quality. BBC HD and ITV HD come across excellently. I cannot recommend this box enough. You don't get Dave or Virgin 1, but then my built in freeview on the telly has these. I can't wait until more HD channels are added (be nice to include Channel 4 HD) or access to BBC Anytime.

Best price for one of these. I wish they would come down a bit more been very slow to reduce price. I think I'll wait until more HD progs go HD on freeview

Got one from Richer Sounds £249.99 VIP Price (Register online for Emails)
£24.99 for 5 year cover refundable if not used

The box is good; More HD please!
Very good sound via opt out too amp; on all chanels

Series link recording works well to date

]Nice surprise is usb upload of photos & mp3 s
(Someone must crack it to paly divix from usb eventually)

I now have a 20 GB juke box of mp3s on it

With the refundable cover I think the Richer Sounds offers the best value
Middlesbrough staf where cool

My customer journey from the Richer Sounds Cardiff Sounds weren't cool. It was very cold. Icy. No warm welcoming smile. No attempt to make me feel like a valued customer. No carrier bag for my purchase. No price match - they told me to go read the small print on the website. Never again.

This just beats the Richer sounds VIP deal. :thumbsup:

5 Year warranty from Richer Sounds would most likely be a lot cheaper than a Dixons rip-off extended warranty.

Dixons and DSG aren't renouned for their outstanding customer service either!! It took endless emails to their MD to get them to honour a back order on this box when it first came out before Christmas. :x

It's a superb dedicated Freesat PVR box and has the capabilities to control motorised systems. It's not in the same enthusiasts league as the GDS or Dreambox's etc. but for the money it's a great buy. The Panasonic Freesat PVR & Blu-ray burner will be out in a few months time but you'll need £999 to get hold of one!! :w00t:
