I'm interested in getting one of these but do you know if you need a dish or cable to connect to and how many channels you can receive on it?

No dish is needed, thats for FreeSat. This requires the standard aerial you would use for FreeView.

This has the same channels as FreeView with some additional channels in HD.

No dish or cable needed, but you will of course need to live in an area where Freeview HD is available.

Thanks for the Rep.

Over the standard freeview channels I think there's only BBC & ITV broadcasting in HD at the moment. I'm not sure if it'll change in the near future though.

key this is like doberman said you need to be in an enabled area, London only at the moment, Emley Moor starts this month, check the freeview site before you buy.
As far as recorders go this has been getting good preview press, records, and also supports online services like iplayer! ;)

Link below to all HD channels currently available and forecast for the future - also shows what areas Freeview HD is currently available in and due dates for other areas.

This is the same price at Amazon - although you could get Quidco via Dixons.

There's a review of this in What Hi-Fi this month. They give it the thumbs up. but as mentioned only selected areas for HD broadcasting at the moment - London and Manchester I read - and only 2 HD channels.

What did disappoint me a bit was that they said the HD quality was below par of the Freesat equivalents :thinking: - a bit 'softer'. Now maybe it's a bitrate thing or maybe just requires further tweaking/development, but I know I won't seek out Freeview HD until there is a twin tuner Humax PVR available.

Until then I have a Freesat receiver and was thoroughly dissappointed with the lack of HD broadcast programming - even now, there is no change to the channel lineup since purchase about 18 months ago.....

I'm definitely going to wait for the dual tuner PVR to come out. It's on my shopping list as soon as it's released.

Well done ... my deal (slightly more expensive) went cold!!

Please be mindful that many of us wont get Freeview HD in some areas until 2012!!

I bought a HD-FOX T2 from Richer sounds.
I have an ongoing problem that needs a fix
In the sound menu the default setting is
L L
If I change this to
L R
Change of channel or after a power off & on
It will not stay changed
It reverts to
L L
I did not buy a product to improve the quality of my viewing
Only to revert to Left channel mono with every change of channel
Humax didn’t reply to this enquiry I emailed them
So I contacted Humax customer services
They said we know about this it will be fixed in a software update
I asked when & was told we dot know when
Buy a T2 if you like mono or playing with buttons
Thankfully Richer Sounds where much more helpful
