WOW!!! Wait for this!

Bought this just before Christmas last year when it was posted on this website for £119 at PC World.

I did a Comet 10% price beat which took it down to c.£110.

Great machine and is definitely one of those "how did I manage without one before" gadgets.

Pricewise £140 is not that great considering it has been cheaper and with a replacement model, it will only get cheaper as a clearance item soon.

Wow, that is a tempting upgrade from my ageing (but loved) PVR-8000T.
#7
I upgraded to a 9200TB from a 8000T last Xmas, and it was definitely worth doing, but £139 is not mega-cheap and with the new model about to ship and on pre-order for £20 more, I'd give this a miss and order a 9300.

What's the purpose of those USB2.0 ports... Can you ACTUALLY transfer content to and from any storage device connected to them

No.

This is a freeview PVR box.

Why don't they call it DVR? (D for digital) PVR sounds lame....

On the 9200 I know that you can transfer recorded content off the Humax and onto a PC. However, it actually runs at nearer USB1 speeds.

It's a different thing isn't it... Sky is Sky, and Freeview is Freeview... the technology is similar but they are two different systems. The Humax box is recognised as being one of the best PVR's around for those happy with it as it comes albeit at quite a cost over cheaper models that can be had 100 quid cheaper. The Topfield is the best for modifying and customising how it runs...some would say how it should come from the factory anyway. This deal takes around 20 quid off the previous best price, 35 quid typically but it still represents one of the most expensive PVR's.

I had my first PVR around 5 or more years ago, for those that have never had one the recording quality looks exactly the same as that broadcast and you can do things like play the programme that ius still recording, pause live tv while you make a cuppa, some will record two things at once...they are fantastic machines. However unlike VCR's, some people seem to be plagued by problems which are often considered to be reception quality issues. If you buy one it may be worth considering a digital quality aerial or signal booster.

For a Humax this is a reasonable price but with the new model just coming out, refurbs on the Humax website at less cost and Freesat coming It's not the mega-bargain that I would hope for. Stay with my 3 year old Thomson for now...only 40 gig drive but works perfectly and there's b*gger all on anyway!

I think you're missing the point. Sky+ is great, but without Sky is utterly pointless. This is an equivalent of Sky+ for people with Freeview.
#22
I have preordered. Going to sell my 500gb Topfield 5810 as I much prefer the 9200T Humax I know use in the bedroom.

i know what your saying but theres nuthing relly on freeview really
#24
Anyone any idea when the new one actually comes out??? as in How long have we got left for this price on martin dawes? http://www.martindawes.net/ProductDetails.aspx?pid=PVR9300T&cid=digital_set_top_boxes&pcidl=&language=en-GB
Also is double the HDD and HDMI upscaling and Component in the only extra features? Because I wont be getting a HDTV for quite a while and so for a SDTV is the only benefit the bigger HDD?
Even if it is I will still go for the new one so how long have we got on this preorder offer? I NEED THIS SO BAD.....
#25
OK, you know how it says Out of stock? is that just because its preorder or will it not let you order it as they havent got enough. I just want to get my order in... (at martin dawes, not dixons):-D
And I can't seem to find a post on HUKD for this new 320GB one at martin dawes, is there one? if not I don't suppose there are any promotional codes for martin dawes are there? as I can find any on HUKD, Or Quidco actually, anyone know if martin dawes does quidco?
#26
A great machine with an incredible number of features inc. record two channels at a time, pause while you make a cup of tea, one button recording, add your own mp3s and jpegs to disk etc etc.

Bought mine beginning of year ( £170 ) and very pleased with it - easy to set up - this is an oap speaking. Storage disk size is huge and I rarely use more than 50%. Acknowledge new version will be bigger but not sure many will benefit.

Also excellent forum for discussion and problems

http://www.hummy.org.uk/forums/index.php?act=idx

Have a look at the forum and I don't think you'll be disappointed. If you are a techy you can go really deep with it but as an ordinairy human bean I find it good and easy to use at level 1.

Either you don't understand or you are being deliberately obtuse.

As a machine the Humax it is easily better than the Sky+ box. Easier to navigate, better quality functions, not as laggy, overall more user friendly.

Sky+ has better content but that’s got nothing to do with the specifics of the box. Why do you think Sky users have to pay between £192 - £540 a year in subscriptions alone?

Compare like with like. Sky+ is comparable to similar services like Virgin, BT, etc. This Humax is comparable with boxes from Topfield, Creative, Grundig, Goodmans, Panasonic, Sony, etc, etc.

You wouldn't compare a car directly with a bike just cause they are both modes for transport.

I have both Sky+ and this PVR and choose to watch the Humax when a programme is available on both.
#28
Anything like this freesat compitible yet?

Depends, if you haven't got a Sky dish then a Sky+ box is pretty useless.

Good find but i think I'll go with the HDMI version when that comes out......or isn't that as good as Sky HD ? ;-)
#30
I've had my 9200T (silver) since launch. Can't fault it. It *WILL* change your terrestial viewing.
View mine on a 42in plasma via RGB. Can't fault the picture.

With the most recent firmware update (earlier this year) it brought the ability to series-link programmes.

I rarely watch TV 'live' now.
#31
Would it be worth investing in teh newer model and perhaps waiting for the freesat equivalent if it ever happens?
#32
Can someone tell me if I can use this to record programmes from my virgin media cable box.
i do not want to subscribe to virgin foe a V+ box.
#33
I read somewhere about there being a HD PVR by Humax that would have a built in HD decoder so that it can receive and display freeview HD at 1080p.

Absolutely delightful. Those who are waiting for the 9300 will pay a premium for some extra HD space and HDMI (which may not even be of benefit in many cases as the content is not HD). This is the absolute dogs ****ing ********. It really is that good. ****, I might even get another. Great post. Voted very ****ing hot!

Don't think so, but Humax do make a Freesat HD box, however it does not record. There isn't any freeview being broadcast in high def (unless you count the Crystal Palace trial), so any box that displays 1080p is just upscaling.
#37
The Humax Freesat HD doesn't record, however the is a recorder due later in the year. I guess it depends whether Freesat takes off and they sell many of the non-recorder freesat boxes.
[COLOR=#810081]http://www.humaxdigital.com/freesat/default.asp[/COLOR]
Given that there must be 80% shared componetry between a Freesat and Freeview HD recorder it would be cool if Humax came up with a box that could work with either a sat or aerial input, but I guess that would be too sensible.
#38
The new Humax PVR9300T is available to order right now for £159 from http://www.martindawes.net/ProductDetails.aspx?pid=PVR9300T&cid=digital_set_top_boxes&pcidl=&language=en-GB :thumbsup:
