Grade A means a refurbished one doesn't it?
suspended#2
Yes - taken From website - But they have a full 1 Year Warranty
These products are either older models we are attempting to clear from stock, or "Grade A" ("Grade A" units are marked with the suffix -G or -GSP at the end of the part code). Grade A's are predominantly store returns that have been tested and where appropriate repaired to an "as new" standard in our own service centre or factory. They come fully boxed with all accessories and full instructions and are all backed up by a complete 1 year on site warranty.

Generally these units are on the latest software version but this cannot be guaranteed so free software updates are available via 'Over the Air' transmissions (when available) and at our support website at http://www.humaxdigital.com/hcsa.

great little machine- plus i found humax to have good aftercare service (required for another product).
#4
ive had this model 2 years no problems at all easy to use great picture and you can record 2 programmes at same time on different channels! Best thing i ever bought paid £126 at tesco
#5
Nice deal,just bought a Topfield 5800 pvr for my daughter instore at Currys reduced from £179.99 to £79.99 (no box tried to get it reduced but wouldn't have it)
#6
Def a deal worth considering but shouldn't we be going for HD now since it's just around the corner?

Humax HD-Fox T2 for example?

Could regret not putting that £130 towards HD.
#7
Er!!!!

Done it again.

Must learn to READ properly.

Saw Humax + £130 + and jumped to conclusions. Duh!!
#8
My old Thompson Freeview PVR has a 2 week TV guide - how come none of the others use the same guide?

I mean, why do companies use the 7day rather than the 14day guide (assume its down to cost, but i find it very useful, and worth the extra)

Nevermind - all the answers about EPG here
#11
Our thomson dhd4000 has lost its epg because it's not broadcast anymore. 4TV is dead :(

freeview HD is 2 years away for most of the uk and very odd to compare a PVR to an HD freeview receiver.

I have this box and its superb and even better now that the latest firmware allows the unit to store the epg when in standby.
#14
Yeah it's a great piece of kit. Has picture in picture function too. They regularly update firmware too which was needed as until the last patch when on mine was really sluggish at times but it's perfect now. It's quiet too after another firmware update turned off cooling fans unless they're required rather than running the whole time. Great price this too as they're £130 new.
#15
Can confirm, based on 1.5yrs of usage, that these are GREAT boxes. You MIGHT find very early references to fan noise, but that went away a LONG time ago with a firmware update. (If the box does arrive from Humax without the very,very latest firmware you'll be okay as they are still actively (re-)transmitting over the air - and also have it available for download on their website - though that requires a serial port update.)
Incidentally these use a SATA 3.5" hard-drive so if at some future date the drive does die, you can simply replace with a suitably specced one with minimal hassle (though by then hopefully Freeview HD w/be far more cost-effective).

You can get the PVR9300T-G for £30 more which has a USB port and more disk space amongst other features.
#18
why is this expired?
#19
I bought a Grade A 9200 about a year ago from Humax Direct. Fair play to them for eventually fixing the software despite the age of the box. By far the best Freeview receiver, with picture in picture and uniquely record two watch a third live.

Next box will be a 3View, so the Hummy is going to eBay country in the next few weeks.
#20
I had one of them, bought it just over 2 years ago, it started being hit and miss about when it would record, sometimes it would do the first ten mins of a film I set it to record, sometimes it wouldn't bother recording anything at all, now it's dead.

Humax never replied to my emails, I took it round to a mate who fixes satellite receivers who took one look inside the thing and said it was a piece of cheap junk with a dodgey power connector, a bent circuit board where they had tried to force it in wrong and a cheap rubbish hard drive instead of the western digitals they used to use in the satellite receivers, and that humax have really gone down hill in the last couple of years.

So be forewarned anyone thinking of buying one, they have gone seriously down hill.

The USB port doesn't work though. Humax have never activited it and never will. I know because I got the PVR3000t a few months ago brand new, the USB port had been removed completely.

I used to have the PVR 9150T until I upgraded to the 9300 for bigger disk space, upscalling and HDMI. Got mine for £99 brand new 2 years ago from argos, best humax deal ever, just a shame I never got a few more machines for friends. For this price though, its well worth owning as the argos deal will never be repeated.

There are 2 ways to get the EPG, scrape from each channel or licence from someone else. The 2 week one is as a result of licencing from someone else but you run the risk of havinga defunct box if that provider goes belly up (see one of the other posts)

I have the t-g version and there are lots of problems with them.
Sound goes out of sync when you rewind, programmes vanish from recording schedule at random
Recording conflicts are not easily sorted and it's hard to tell what the PVR has decided
The remote's atrocious with many essential functions hidden under a slide-down panel. I mean, what's the point in an 'instant replay' button that redoes the last few secods being hidden?
You can't access a programme synopsis from the list of recorded programmes you have to start it then check you're on the right episode
Auto-padding can't be used with series link
Prone to bad digital artifact - oddly enough particularly bad on animation.
Very little information viewable at one time in EPG, only 5 channels and 2 hours viewable at once.
Updates to channels wipe out all scheduled recordings.

There's more, but you get the message. It should be good, but it's not nearly as good as it should be. I can't understand why it gets such high ratings on the Gadget Show, Which? and many other sites where it lists at the top of their lists.

Oh, the USB port? It apparently worked on earlier models but no-one used it (suposedly). It is there on the T-G model but software disabled. Humax won't allow youto activate it and it has been roved from future models. But to put the thing in and not allow the owner to decide if they want to use it or not? Says a lot about the company's ethos to me, especially as it's listed in teh product specs!

nope the T-G is NOT this model so pretty irrelevant post tbh!

My Humax pvr-9150t is the best bit of electronic kit I have ever owned
