Whatever the Gadget show says the two best PVR's are the Humax and the Topfield... :thumbsup: If they say anything different they are wrong! :p

Absolutely, and the Humax beats the Topfield of price.

The main thing for me is to be able to copy to PC for burning favourites to dvd. Sony and panasonic hybrids seem to implementing encryption to prevent making dvd copies.

I ordered one from Comet who were doing this for £149.99 in silver last week, plus 3% Quidco.

Notice they have since shunted the price back up to 179.99.

If John Lewis give a 5 year warranty on this then its a good deal, although seems like a sturdy piece of kit so fingers crossed she will last the course.
#8
Daft question this....

Does this unit come with Freeview or would I need a Freeview box...?

Thanks.
#9
Comes with Freeview x 2 Tuners!!!

I've had one since it came out and recommend it 110%
#10
How would this work with a ntl cable box?
Would I be missing some features of this humax if I connected it to my ntl cable box?

Can I connect it to my network by using a USB dongle?
#11


Thx, I botched it up as a client arrived :thumbsup:

I love my Humax, I only have the 8500 model but it has served me well the last few years and i'd highly recommend the brand.

Can I connect it to my network by using a USB dongle?


Sadly, no. There are no networking facilities within the firmware.
#13
I think it only accepts freeview over the air and nothing else!
#14
I too bought the silver one from Comet for £149.99 last week, and it's brilliant :thumbsup:

A nice deal (thanks!) but JL only give the standard two year warranty on this.
#16
I tried to buy the comet deal but after 4 phone calls and being assured the order would arrive I was told the order had been messed up. I was too mad to make a new order and found John Lewis instead. Incedently the humax comes with a manufacturers 2 year gurantee so the John Lewis 2 year guarantee is not such an advantage as it usually is

Hi,
I was just wondering, if i want to record something off my sky box how does it work? Do i have to put in the times of the show like a video recorded?
thanks

You can't, its a freeview box :whistling:
#19
Me too, I bought one from Comet last week - brilliant!

Think this is my first post here :)

Right, any hummy 9200T box is the same really they all use the same hardware except that the HHD can be changed for a more bigger one, and te changed the case colour to black - those 500GB HHD can fit inside the unit (must check before you do though!)

As with the firmware on the box, I have version 1.00.15 which is the latest version out on the web, you can easily upgrade the Hummy box 9200 to the latest version by serial port and the programs from hummy (online)

In the coming weeks, version 1.00.20 should be out which is group 2 of the freeview which means:

Series link: Allows viewers to programme the DTR to automatically record every episode of a series

Split recording: records two-part programmes, for example a film with a news break.

Alternate instance recording: Suggests an alternative (repeat) time for the same programme if a clash in the recording schedule occurs.

The PVR-9200T will also be upgraded to handle these new features via an automatic, over-the-air software download.

The new version I hope will be done over the air update, if not done via a pc with a serial port :)

Like darren999 said, you can't

The Hummy 9200 can use record items from the aerial (freeviw)
#22
same here I got fed up waiting for a new OTA update, so I did on via the pc in the end :)

But one thing about humax,,, well done for keeping the old 9200 working to the new free view standards which are coming into play soon :)
#23
Will this in anyway help me to transfer recorded programmes from my Sky Plus box to my PC, where I can edit the programmes accordingly and burn them onto DVD? If not, then does anyone know how this can be achieved?

No, as a couple of people have already said this is a Freeview only box. You could do what you want with DVD recorder (or DVD/Hard drive recorder) unless $ky do something to block the signal, but I doubt that.... :thumbsup: I don't have $ky, so can't try it.
#25
thanks for the information guys :)

Evesham are selling their 250GB model for £120:

http://www.evesham.com/products/info.asp?e=1A7821D9-A736-4A2F-9A5D-5CC112701BC5

is that a good deal too?
#27
does anyone know if humax (or topfield) are planning a network model any time soon?

I'd like another PVR - but an ethernet connection is vital, USB is no use to me. I've been waiting and hoping, but no joy yet. :/
#29
Daft question time!!
My Sky box has 2 ariel out boxes that I use to put sky into 2 other rooms. If I plugged the ariel out cable to the ariel in socket of the PVR could I then record Sky programmes?

No, you'll need either a sky+ box or a dragon cam for your pc to record sky programmes.

Good spot... there is a 5% off code on HUKD too, making it even cheaper! :thumbsup:

It's a nice unit at a good price , but ,if you have no means of saving your recorded footage then it's not worth having I'm afraid , as it's just on the hard drive ....[unless I've missed something here ]. I've looked into these a while back and opted for the Lite-on DVD/HDD unit for around £90 . This unit is a 160gig drive with a DVD player/recorder with Allwrite technology ....meaning it will write to either +/- disks .It has no freeview but will connect to anything with a scart to record from . Once you've recorded something it has it's own thumbnail that can be viewed , deleted or merged with another bit of footage .I hope this answers some of the questions regarding the different types of PVR's.

Why is that, I record programme's and then I watch them, I don't wanna save anything forever - watch it once then thats it I don't wanna watch it again!

Great box.

You can save your recorded shows onto a USB flash drive then transfer to your PC.

Won't fit.
You need a "printer" USB cable.

The thing is your recordings will all be analogue copies (because scart is an analogue cable). With a humax/topfield they are PDTV (pure digital TV) captures. That means little to no loss of quality from the original. The picture quality is far too soft and smeary looking from analogue caps for some people (others however find them fine - all depends on your definition of quality).

As others have said, you can save to the PC with a humax/topfield - but the problem is you have to use USB to transfer the files, which is neither convenient (unless your PC and PVR are close together) or fast (painfully slow in fact). If the speed doesn't bother you then the humax is certainly the best PVR on the market.
