Nice price for a really great machine - it will transform your life. I see they also do the PVR-9300T 320GB model for £199.99.

mystery cold voters strike again

What’s the mystery? People think it’s a cold deal and vote it cold.! :thinking:
#4
I've been looking for one of these! Thanks.

out of stock around Doncaster/Sheffield/Leeds/Bradford/Wakefield/Warrington/Widnes/Leigh/Runcorn and for home delivery
#6
Just consider before investing in new PVR equipment to assess WHAT MEDIA you want to record.

With the launch in recent months of Freesat with several HD stations you MAY want to consider getting a PVR that can deal with Freesat not Freeview.

THAT SAID there is NO current Freesat PVR, although one is due later in the year - from Humax at least.

Oh please, don’t encourage everyone to post a comment every time they vote for a deal or the threads will be swamped with comments; now that would be idiotic.

As far as I can see £130 is the RRP so what’s hot about this!

I think the RRP is £149, so £129 is a good deal. Its a mystery because the cold voters dont say "I voted cold, its cheaper here...[link]" :thumbsup:
#11
This doesn't have all the features of the 9200 and probably will be cheaper by Christmas

However, I'm going to buy this tomorrow as my formerly brilliant Daewoo DS608 box has been killed by freeview 'network enhancements'. Thanks for the post...

So it's a good deal because a horse told you so; keep on taking the meds.

Maplin sell a Free-to-air HD satellite receiver for £149.99 that, although not "Freesat" branded, will receive the same free-to-air channels, and has a USB port for connecting an external hard-drive (to give the unit a PVR function).

Cheaper from 24electric.com (£123.84), but they're out of stock :-(

Voted hot as its a good price, but beware:
Argos have excluded this item from their 30day money back guarantee
This model (unlike the 320GB model) doesn't have an HDMI connector

Dixons have the 9200T in stock for £139.99 delivered if you use the voucher 10PVR plus Quidco at 3% is available.

The 9150T is missing a number of features that the 9200T has:

USB connection to transfer recordings to a PC.
Optical S/PDIF audio output.
RF Modulator.
Video out over RCA.
Front panel display showing channel name and number.

The 9150T has a low power standby mode that the 9200T doesn’t but apart from that it is basically a cut-down version. There are reports on DigitalSpy and/or AVForums that the 9150T is louder than the older versions as well.

(a) Got cheaper here (URL goes here)
(b) Service/Product is **** (URL goes here)
(c) Am not interested

Just my luck! Aside from the chair deal from Argos, none of the other items posted here have been in stock around the Yorkshire area - Leeds, Bradford, Wakefield....:x

The Bumph states 2 (twin) tuners, does anybody know if they are both freeview tuners? Not even the Humax site states the answer, which leads me to think it only has one Freeview tuner. Anybody know for sure?

It's a Freeview only PVR so both tuners are digital.
#23
Thanks for the info. I've just telephoned (prior to your reply) a well known national electrical retailer and they stated catagoricaly that the Model has 1 digital and 1 analogue tuner............Argos catalogue (as usual) is unclear, it even states the it has not got a common interface slot, which apparently it has........Still confused.........Thanks again for the info
#24
it is cheaper here tho also out of stock:

http://www.tribaluk.com/humax-pvr9150t-freeview-62508037.htm

not voted either way :)
#25
I'd be massively surprised if this had an analog tuner. What with analog switch off already started and it being a new model.
in fact i'd go so far as to say there is definitely no analog tuner.

As Agharta said, it's a Freeview PVR, so I suppose Humax just take it for granted that everyone will know that both tuners are digital. You make a fair point, though.

It is definitely two digital tuners (it wouldn't function properly at all any other way), and the advice you were given from the national retailer was just plain wrong, as so often is the case with these guys. Try John Lewis if you want some proper advice (it wasn't them was it?).

Whichever Humax you buy, you won't regret it, though I'd go for the 320GB model if funds permit.
#27
Can anyone please tell me if it's possible to record two channels at the same time and watch a previously recorded programme from the hard disc.
#28
Thanks for the good advice Agharta & Newbold, much appreciated.
#29
I voted cold because I found Humax PVRs to be overpriced at best and poor at worst....my digifusion box cost me about 100 quid a few years ago and was doing the proper 'record a programme not set a timer' years ago

Have you tried the latest versions of the firmware, though? Way better than they used to be, with the big advantage that you effectively get a new improved operating system free of charge with every major update.

Mine's a 9200T, had it for nearly 3 years, and I can honestly say that it's the most useful device I've ever bought. Totally reliable, so far, though you have to accept that at some point all hard drives will fail, and has transformed TV watching totally. Until you've tried one of these you don't realise how very good they are. Not remotely like a VCR - way, way better.
#32
Out of stock at Argos as well I see...
#33
I also have the 9200 and agree with Newbold 100%. I paid £179 for mine a couple years ago and it has worked excellently since I bought it. Output to a 37" Samsung LCD tv is excellent, sometimes I forget I am watching a Freeview recording and think it a DVD. Quality of recorded programs depends on the channel you are recording and what bit rate it is broadcast at.
#34
Just buy the 9200 160GB direct from Humax for £99 + delivery or the 320GB for £129 + delivery (Grade A refurbs with 12 month guarantee) http://www.humaxdirect.co.uk/prodCat2.asp?cat=Factory

Yep, I second this! Plus that cutdown model is FUGLY compared to the 9200T.

I don't have the Humax as my 4 yr old Thomson 4000 is almost perfect apart from disc space. However the Humax's are regarded by many techy types on various forums (Digital Spy etc.) as one of the best PVR's and they have a pedigree of satellite receiver building. They do seem a bit costly though.

They did have a system (on the 9200) that required the box to be switched on and running (not standby) so that it populated the EPG. This feature put me off because it appears to mean you can't just switch on briefly to 'set the video' before you go down the pub although I'm told in practice the information populates quickly. My Sony 870 works in the same way as this and I know the information for some channels is missing on start up and it populates after a few minutes i.e. my point re waiting to set the video. My Thomson EPG on the other hand always seems fully populated even at start up even with changes to programming. So, I'd be interested if this feature remains on the newer Humax models. Of course if you never switched the Humax (or my Sony) unit off or to standby this wouldn't be an issue.

The Humax is much quicker to load the EPG with the new free firmware installed, but still not instant. There's an easy workround, though - you can set it to switch itself on an hour before you want to use the EPG and be quite sure that when you want to use it it will be fully loaded.

My 9200T is generally quick to load the EPG data but occasionally certain channels can be slow. Some channels took roughly 30 minutes yesterday but that is rare.
