Cheapest Hummy around , I paid £180 for my silver one 6 months ago
#4
These are excellent devices. Best thing i have bought for a while :thumbsup:
#5
Great bit of kit for the money! (I have the 9200T)

Im hanging on however for the new HD humax being released intime for the freesat HD service due to start in the spring 2008 Link: http://gadgetshow.five.tv/jsp/5gsmain.jsp?lnk=101&id=658
#6
this is what i'm getting for xmas :) its already wrapped up and under the tree :-D
#7
Everybody's selling these off now, ready for the new 320gb model which is due out shortly - already available direct from Humax. Great machine, but I'm waiting for the new model.
#8
So does all that gibberish mean I can pretty easily hook this up to my sky dish to get sky in my bedroom instead of having to watch it downstairs?
#9
I've just got the silver model for £165 including delivery from Hughes, which I didn't think was too bad a price for the silver model. But £155 for the black version is good!
#10
Has this box got a component output?

Has this box got a component output?

No - no component. Topfield has but have also read that the RGB SCART gives a better output than its component output.
Don't forget Quidco plus if you have an Egg card you get 3% cashback if you use that. It was even cheaper at the weekend when there was a 5% off code too.
I wouldn't say everyone is selling the machines off. Prices of these have been rising and falling for the last year or two but have held well. Not everyone will want to spend the extra for the bigger hard disk. The main pressure will be from the competition if someone other than Topfield manages to produce a reliable, quality machine for significantly less.
#12
Great price for a great machine. Apart from the dual tuner (which means you can record two overlapping programs), it's so much simpler to use than a DVDR, and the pause/replay live TV buffer is always on while you're watching a channel.

I paid £180 back in June when this model was released, Comet were then asking £199. But all electronic stuff slowly falls in price.

No, it takes a terrestrial aerial plug and tunes in the Freeview channels. scart (RGB or S-Video) out to a TV, second scart (S-Video) to a DVDR or VCR. USB to transfer recordings to a PC.
#13
No amount of 'heat' can actually convey how great a product this is.
It will truly change your entire way of watching TV - only, it will take you some time to understand this.

You'll learn to pre-record everything. The up-coming 'series-link' feature is great, and a God-Send.
And once watching pre-recording programmes, you'll soon learn to ad-skip through the boring bits.

And then there's "timeslip" - want to go get a beer? Hit pause. Got get the beer. Return to the sofa. Settle in. Press 'play'.

It's genius. Plain and simple.
#14
I am seriously thinking about one of these as an upgrade to the cheap digifusion refurb (or digihome i always get them confused) i got, that is great and from what ive read and heard this is 100 times better, still not got the hang of skipping through ads on that though as the fast forward speeds are really fast. The usb to pc connection is a great plus in my opinion. The main reason though is so I can try some of the hacks you can do on the other box it'll replace! This is the only gizmo I can think of that gets constant glowing praise from all owners I have yet to find a bad review of one. They seem consistent in quality standards.
#15
Simple decision ...Buy it! This is an excellent PVR and the wife and I have been very happy with it. Voted hot.
#16
I've had one of these for about a year now and I love it. All the comments from the people above are correct so I won't repeat them. This device is simply brilliant and is well worth £155. :thumbsup:
#17
Great PVR, but before you buy it is not just the 320gb one that is coming out soon.

Next year sees the launch of Freesat, and Freesat will contain HD, and the Freesat Humax PVR will be able to record in HD, which is presumably why they are launching a 320gb version.

So if you have or can have a satellite dish Freesat may be a better choice than Freeview, and it may be worth waiting for the Freesat PVR to come out and drop in price.

That is what I am waiting for.

No - no component. Topfield has but have also read that the RGB SCART gives a better output than its component output.

******. I'm trying to find a decent PVR with a component output. I use the RGB on my Thomson straight into my LCD TV at the moment, along with a DVD recorder and a Showcenter, but I want to incorporate an AV receiver into the system - for which I'd ideally like a component output, as changing to S-video really seems like a step backwards from RGB.
#19
Dont know if they are any good but Netto have Grundig PVR with 160Gb/twin tuners next week for £99.99
#20
Hi, I have had this machine (previous version) for several months.

Fantastic, as stated in other posts, this will change the way you watch TV, our kids love it.

I have been running the version of the software with series linking etc. for about 3 weeks, it works fantastically (note not all channels broadcast with the relevant information, this is shown in the guide). My kids love this option to get all their shows recorded automatically.

Freesat has been available for over a year on Sky, I know, my in-laws have it, one-off fee, card send from Sky, then you get loads of channels for free. I assume you are talking about the fact that they will become HD?

Best piece of kit I ever bought. Had for a full 12 months now and never crashed once. My old digifusion did well to last a week without needing a reboot and losing stuff from the hard drive.

Over the air free software upgrade is due in January which will add extra features such as Series Link meaning this box just gets better and better. I paid £180 for mine so this is a good price especially if you can use quidco etc.

Really will change the way you watch TV.

Voted hot.
#22
I'll add to the glowing praise for this. Had one until the summer for about a year (now got a Sky HD) and whilst the menus are easier on Sky + machines I still miss my Humax. PVRs can be temperamental and picture quality from freeview boxes in general can vary but the Humax never let me down and put out a much better and stronger freeview picture than the one received via my TV which has freeview built in.

Yes you could wait for the next version to be released but as with all technology if you keep waiting for the next upgrade you will never dive in!
#23
Does anyone know if this unit is compatible with Home Choice? Also, is it better than the Sky+ box? Thanks
#24
Humax are really good and at a very competitive price. I've had one of their PVRs for 2 years. Best money I ever spent.
#25
Same price at Laskys:
http://www.laskys.com/tv_and_dvd/free_view/digital_tv_recorders/humax_pvr9200t_b.html

If you are into 3 or 5 year warranties the Lasky ones are quite a bit cheaper than the Dixons ones.

Well then you should go for the Topfield then. The Topfield is probably even better than the Humax as it gives you component out, is fanless so is silent, can be updated via user programs (TAPS) which include ones which emulate and sometimes surpass Series Link and you can store your recordings in folders (unlike the Humax). Sadly it costs a bit more. The new Topfield version due out soon will have HDMI too.

What is Home Choice? The Humax (and any other brand of PVR) cannot record from external sources - so if Home Choice is an external source then 'no'. If you want something with a user interface like SKY+ then you can get a TAPS program for the Topfield which emulates that. The comment above yours suggests the user interface is easier than that on SKY+. For me the Humax is better than SKY+ because you don't need a satellite dish.
#28
Thanks - Homechoice is a cable/broadband company - it transmits TV through cable. We are also thinking of moving to Sky.

Bottom line - can we use this box to record TV programmes transmitted by Homechoice (via cable) or Sky (via satellite)? Are we better to get a sky + box for this?

No - you cannot use any PVR to record Sky or any cable transmitted programs. The only things that could do this is a box for the purpose e.g. Sky+ or a DVD recorder (which I think will be more fiddly).
#30
Had one of these for 2 years now - can't live without it.

Every time I go to my parents house and watch TV, I find that I keep wondering where the pause button is on their TV

Just be aware that the Humax can't can't timeshift two channels at once like the Digifusion PVRs can and also if you change channels while timeshifting you lose the timeshift and get dumped back to live TV. All the Humax fanboys don't seem to mention this much. :whistling:

I think you are talking about something totally different, albeit may be referred to by the same 'Freesat' name.

In 2008 the Freesat system is launched. This is a separate satellite system to Sky.... the blurb...
'Freesat is a brand new, all singing, all dancing, digital satellite TV service from the BBC and ITV. freesat has no monthly subscription, just a one-off payment for the digital box, satellite dish and installation - so you pay once, and watch forever. It will even come with subscription-free, high-definition TV programmes. And because freesat is broadcast via satellite, it'll be available to almost every household in the UK when it launches in Spring 08.'
AND
'freesat is a joint venture between the BBC and ITV and comes to you from many of the same people that launched Freeview. freesat came together formally as a joint venture in May 2007, and is funded 50/50 by its shareholders, ITV and the BBC.'

And Humax are involved in the kit - see here for example.

True, but (they/we)* do tend to simply record *everything* that we want to watch, at which point this becomes irrelevant, except where flicking between two channels, while already recording 2 others+.

*delete as appropriate.

+actually, I think the main time shift recording of the current channel doesn't work when already recording 2 other programmes, but I never have cause to use this, so I couldn't say for sure.
#34
Anyone know what rate of Quidco cashback Dixons give on PVRs?

Not clear what category these come under.

The Humax fanboys haven't mentioned the dodgy power supply units that a large percentage of the Digifusion units came with. I tried 2 Digifusion units both of which failed to work out of the box before giving up on them. A friend faired a little better with his - his lasted a year before losing everything on his hard drive.
I haven't heard of many instances of a Humax failing completely in this sort of manner.
To be honest I have never thought I needed to timeshift two channels... or even one. If I want to record something I do.. if someone comes to the door I can press 'Record'.

Hello all

Went to Currys this lunch time and said I would be interested if they sold it at the same price as Dixons (£154.99) - They price matched it with no complaint - it was on the shelf at 179.99 originally. (They just confirmed the price through the tills in the store which have internet access to check Dixons price).

It was very easy - and a great way to get it before Christmas.

Merry Xmas!

Nice one well done! :santa:

Cant say im really that surprised though as Currys & Dixons (Also PC World) are the same company, so I guess that's why they didnt quibble.
