Very true, cheers searcher2
#3
Please can you tell me how to get the Egg and Quidco discount at the same time.
You have to go through a dedicated link to Dixons on the Egg web site, so how can you still go through Quidco at the same time.

Cheers

From another post about a Panasonic TV from Dixons people were reckoning that you didn't need to go through the Egg website to get the Egg cashback. I had a quick look at the Egg website and couldn't see where it said that you had to go through their link. My brother in law was trying it out to see if it worked on a TomTom he was buying so I will try to find out for you - but people on the Panasonic thread were reckoning they got both Quidco and Egg by going through Quidco and using the Egg card.

Best buy of the year, bought one for t'other lounge.

Had my first one for 18 months, best gadget I've ever owned. GOD, I sound like an advert for Humax! Never heard of them until I bought the single tuner 8000 which is in the bedroom.

Voted HOT.

Re this Humax comment - In addition to receiving Freeview channels the Duovisio can also receive pay TV channels with the use of a CA module

What is a CA module and can I record sky if fitted on an EPG?

Many thanks

I read the other day on the Which? website that Freeview will be launching a PVR under the Freeview label next month. Several manufacturers including Humax applied to make the boxes under licence. The unit will retail for about £150.

This Humax unit is excellent - will change your life! Great price too!

I got mine in Oct 2005 when they first came out and I use it almost every day great for recording programs and able to watch them while its crap tv time which is sadly all to often thanks to likes of Big brother and the rubbish on Saturday night now.


You can watch one freeview channel and record two other freeview channels in some cases depending on which ones.

I also heard of a newer model soon but these are good kits, I have 3 Humax boxes, 2 pvrs and one Fox-T and they brill

This is an excellent deal - I've had mine for nearly two years. The picture quality is excellent and, as mentioned before, you can record two programmes simultaneously whilst watching a recorded programme. My only criticism is that the unit can occasionally miss recording the end of a programme if the recording is set up using the EPG (electronic programme guide.) This is not the machine's fault as such, but if the broadcast overruns by a couple of minutes, the machine will miss it. Hopefully, somebody will invent something similar to 'Videoplus' or 'PDC' for these Freeview tuners.

RED HOT DEAL NONETHELESS!

You can fix this by setting "Auto Padding" to 5 mins (it records an extra 5 mins each side of the programme) Personally I have mine set to record 1 min before, and 5 mins after. I never miss the end of a programme.

Go to Menu> Record> Recording Start Time (1 min early)

Go to Menu> Record> Recording Start Time (5 min later)

Make sure you have software version v1.10 because you get a lot more stuff including this (ie up to 50 timers, 5 channel EPG etc) My only criticism would be that you should be able to save the EPG to the hard drive as it takes several minutes to load after turning the unit off, and also Series Link would be nice, I think Humax and the Freeview broadcasters are working on a way to do this eventually.

Hi, I've recently got sky for the first time & find that I could do with being able to record stuff when i'm out. I've spent ages trying to get my xp media centre pc trying to do this, but it just crashes and doesn't work, i got a black & white picture on svideo out, but can't get anything off a scart to yellow svideo in.

Anyway, i fancy getting something to record sky but without upgrading to sky+.

Can anyone help ?

Cheers

It's called "Freeview Playback". See here. It is not a brand but the Humax can have a label on it like "freeview playback". Humax are also planning on releasing an update to make the 9200T freeview playback compatible.

So freeview playback is just a generic marketing name for compatible freeview PVR's - much like sky plus!

I don't get it. Surely Freeview Playback just another name for a PVR. So why would Humax need an update to make the 9200T compatible? Can anyone clarify?

Gonna order the Humax now anyway

Cheers OP

#15
Theres probably some extra data that will be transmitted along with the Freeview channels to update the EPG and schedule if things change (ie a football match over runs pushing your programme back an hour) so your recording will still get what you want.

Humax would probably update the firmware to accommodate for that. Also Series Link would be good!
#16
Cheers for that Russ - makes sense

SirHugo :thumbsup:


Update: Just ordered!

This is a Freeview receiver. It will not receive or record Sky satellite channels.

CA module is a PCMCIA card. That will let you watch the TopUp TV subscription channels, and also Setanta Sports on Freeview.

Does anyone know if it can be used to record from Homechoice? Thanks
#20
word of warning, this machine is a little noisy. I have one in the bedroom and even on standby, you can hear the fan whizzing round. If you turn it off, it takes approx 4-5 mins to scan all the channels again. Apart from that, it's a great piece of kit. Really good price though !!!
#21
Even at £159 this is still overpriced for the hardware you get.. A RRP price drop is long overdue on these in my opinion ( or more likely a replacement model at a lower RRP as this unit is over 2 years old).

Whilst it is reportedly good, there are units with basically the same harware for £90 or even less.
The Humax has better features written into its firmware, but how often are they neccessary !!! I find it very rare that i even need to record two programs at once. Lets face it , most of the main ITV and BBC programs are repeated at different times on their other channels ( BBC3 , ITV 2, ITV3 etc). So if two did overlap you could record one of the re-runs.

The cheap Vestel PVR clones ( Techwood, Digifusion, Dual ) perform perfectly well and are well under £100.
They give the same basic functionality for almost half the cost.
#22
Don't forget you can always upgrade the HD if you want more space;

Not sure how easy it is with other PVR, but this one inparticular seems well easy!

I havent found mine to be noisy, only makes a light hum when recording. Some of the fans on the earlier models were noisy apparently, you can turn them off, at your own risk of course.

I'm tempted but I'd like a DVD Recorder/HDD unit and I'm trying to find out how much the new LiteOn HD-A970GX costs

http://www.liteonit.eu/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=217&Itemid=103

Any Ideas?

strange, fan on mine is quite noticable. Have dixons been flogging cheapo versions again ?
#26
This is still the best freeview PVR on the market and is a steal at this price. It is not noisy and I would recommend to anyone

Some people have found its to do with vibrating surfaces and putting it on a cloth or rubber mat can help reduce noise. Worth having a read here,

Life changing machine, well, it will change the way you watch television forever. I've said before it's the best peice of kit I've ever bought and would buy again tomorrow! :)

My HUMAX has always run quite silent, with a slight hum. Mine is housed in a wooden cabinet and I would of thought, if anything, this would enhance the sound of any vibration.

Voted Hot.

Mine is practically silent too? Maybe it's just bad luck that some have got noisier boxes? Excellent bit of kit... :thumbsup:

I find it quite sad that you come on here and slag off a machine that you don't even own, if as you say this machine isn't far better than most competition (topfield just as good) then why would people buy it...Humax is hardly a make that is well known so its not just coz of the brand.

The cheap pvr's are absolute crap and I think its well worth £159, mine is the best thing I ever bought....oh and I often record 2 programme's at once.

The humax comes with a 2 yr warranty which is great and even if the software is the only thing that makes it great and not the hardware..who cares...if that is the case then why don't the cheaper pvr's have decent software???

I have had two of these. The first one's hard drive failed after about 9 months. I got a full refund from John Lewis. My immediate reaction was to buy another one... The second one works fine but is a lot nosier than the first. I have added an additional resistor ahead of the fan and that has sorted out the noise issue now. It seems that there was a noisy batch.

simes - I really cant agree, the cheap PVRs are terrible in my experience, well worth paying an extra £50-60 for something well made.

mine arrived today and I am blown away just with what came in the box. 5 minutes to plug it all in and start watching. a quick read of the pdf user guide and I feel comfortable all ready. in fact I'm already looking on the humax community to see what else I can do!

one thing I have noticed is that if I have watched a program from start but only decide I want to keep it and hence press record half way through, it only seems to record from that point whereas sky+ that I have used previously will keep the program from the start

did I miss something or is that how it works on this one?
#37
Received mine today as well - haven't had chance to look at it yet though. Was surprised though that it was delivered just in the Humax packaging with no outer box. Also it wasn't sealed (or in great condition) so I'm hoping all the contents are intact!

afraid it works as a vcr would, only records from when you tell it to. You can't "backtrack" as far as I know. Is your machine silent or noisy ?
#39
ok. thanks. so I didn't miss something then. still heaps better than sky+ box!

I can hear a faint whirring of what sounds like a fan but only if I go and stand next to the unit and put it on mute
#40
If you press record yes it will only record from then till the end of the programme, however if it was already on the right channel then just rewind to the beginning of the programme and then press record and it will record the whole programme (this is because of the 2 hr continuous buffer on the channel that it is currently playing)
