A re-post but still a good deal. This has been available for many weeks.
#2
couldnt see this particular model being posted previously
#3
That's a good price for the 320gb version, not sure if it's necessary, i bought the 160gb version brand new from Comet a while ago for £117 and im nowhere near filling it, with loads of things on, about 8 films included!!!

I was looking at the Humax boxes but went with the Topfield due to the noise created by the fans in the Humaz boxes, something pointed out in pretty much every review there is.
#5
Yeah, it does have a fan, i hardly notice it now though, only when the TV is off

I bought one of these a few months ago. It's a cracking piece of kit. I've managed to nearly fill it up, only got about 18% free. I don't quite understand the people that go on about the noise, do they stand infront of the thing listening to it or something?

Highly recommended :thumbsup:

Nice one :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup: Do you have a 9300 and if so how quite is it now, as I want to upgrade.


Owners of the PVR-9300T are advised to leave their recorders in stand-by mode overnight between 27th to 29th November. If you have a PVR-9150T, the over-the-air update happens between 5th and 8th December.
Humax is at pains to stress that all of its PVRs manufactured from October 2008 already contain the Smart Fan Control software.

Try Googling Humax 9200 fan noise and try to tell me people arent complaining about the noise from this model.

I agree, Id advise people to make up their own decision, I couldnt care less what people buy. It amazing how attached people get to bits of hardware.

You said “pretty much every review there is” Which is just not true. Yes I am sure there are some noisy ones. The only reason I have a Humax is @ the time of purchase it was £100.00 cheaper than the Topfield. The only reason I wouldn’t buy a Topfield now is I would be forever tinkering with Taps:thumbsup:

The 1st 9200 we got 3 years ago was quite the latests one is slightly noisy but not bad its in a bed room and daughter records when she is a sleep sometimes and it doesn't bother her. The latest model I believe was noisy but fixed with a recent firmware


Yes it does support series link and Humax rock they get good reviews that's why I buy Humax for support, and well built gear

I am getting the freesat box real soon when I can get one
#26
I bought one of these form Humax direct, great service, great product cant even hear the fan = 10/10

Humax' customer is generally the retailers. They have demo models used in store, places like John Lewis etc. If the demo stock is owned by the retailer, they sell it off cheap. If the demo stock is on loan, they return it to the manufacturer.

Most of this refurb kit is ex. demo stuff that has been firmware upgraded etc. to bring it to "as new" condition.

Some early 9200 models did have a noise problem, but it was more a hard disk vibration than a fan - many people just don't have a clue what they are listening to. If the unit was placed directly on a wooden floor or on certain TV cabinets, this could magnify these vibrations a little - making them seem a lot louder.

Many affected owners returned these models and had them replaced with a silent unit that is almost completely inaudible and considerably quieter than and Sky+ box ever sold.

I bought the 9200 from Humax Direct a couple of months ago.

My unit was brand new, unmarked in any way, still had the original film on the display, all accessories in brand new condition in sealed bags and all in an original pristine box.

Great bit of kit.

Yes there is a small amount of noise (mine stands on a glass shelf beneath my TV) which is inaudible unless the room is in total silence and you are standing right by the unit; but this is mainly a disc noise rather than a fan and can be remedied very simply. For those who do experience any noise look on [url]www.hummy.org[/url] or the Humax forum on the digital spy website for solutions.

One person simply placed small pieces of felt underneath the feet of the player and this eliminated the noise completely.

mornin' ----

does anyone know, can you TURN OFF the INTERACTIVE NONSENSE on this Humax ?

I have a Thomson 4000 , and it has the option to do that, this is a godsend, all the bbc " PRESS RED " nonsense is removed......why the bbc insist on permantely having a press-red sign beggars belief.....
#33
quick question,

with regards to the SERIES RECORD, can you set it so that it pads the start and ends times, seeing as all programs are late these days.......

( why is that ? years ago they were bang on time, these days no one cares, why has the bbc become so sloppy about this ? )

The trick is to only watch recorded shows. The "press red" won't appear on a recording. You can't cancel it from live TV on freeview.

Please do tell if you know of any electrical manufacture that doesn’t get some returns:whistling: My 9200 is coming up for 3 years old, it’s starting to play up. I am going to buy a new
Humax, that’s how good I think they are:-D

"Freeview Playback" incorporates a series link function along with accurate record. When the show starts, the broadcaster sends a signal to tell the recorder to start. If it over-runs, you don't miss the end.

That's the theory.

In reality, broadcasters can be as sloppy at sending the signal as they are at starting the show. For most purposes it's just fine, but it can miss 30secs here and there - particularly on Channel 4/5.

You can disable accurate record and use automatic padding instead if you wish though.
#37
thanks for the info.................

on the thomson, you can disable interactive , so u dont get the press red nonsense, is there really no option to disable interactive on the humax ?
#38
Does it have a setanta sports slot ?

My Verdict : Humax 9200 is RUBBISH.

sorry guys, but from what Ive found out about the Humax, it seems it is an astonishingly poor pvr.

1) EPG takes 10 mins to load EVERY TIME u switch it on !!!

is this for real ??? I have a Thomson 4000, and have tried also 2 others pvrs, and they all stored 14 days of epg data on the Hard drive.... the humax stores in it ram and needs 10 mins to download it everytime u switch it on ??? === are the designers retarded or something ? ===

2) series record - u cant use padding in this mode !! WTF ??? are the programmers really really thick ??? there is no point to series rec, without the padding, as the ' accurate record ' feature isnt, so its either KNOW that u r going to miss the last 3-5 mins of program, or gamble that the accurate-rec will work ( ie the data is transmitted correctly - i know pdc never worked properly )

So, 3 years later, and still no one makes a pvr any better than the thomson.... its all a big joke, u would think programming some software for a freeview recorder was the most complex task on earth.....

disappointed again.

ps: is there no way the government can force the bankers that run the tv channels so that they transmit programs at the precise time ?

the bbc used to do this, in the 1960s , now 40 years later and with computer accuracy, they are running 5 mins late every day... what a bunch of bankers , everywhere you go, u see them, theyre everywhere
