How did I guess... it's second hand, and not described as that.

And before you make out it isn't, I have a Humax second-hand PVR from the same source, that has been full of niggling faults from the day it arrived but slightly better on a recent firmware update.

Some gift that was!

Sounds like a Refurb to me. You do have 12 months to sort out any problems, should there be any. If it is not working properly on arrival, you would be able to return it for a refund within 7 days.
#3
I would wait for HD box which is coming very soon. I know it's more but IMOP worth the extra.;)

Humax are very clear in saying "(Grade A)" prominently in product name and in features, and the site's section begins:
"What are "Manager Specials"?
"These products are either older models we are attempting to clear from stock, or "Grade A" ("Grade A" units are marked with the suffix -G or -GSP at the end of the part code). Grade A's are predominantly store returns that have been tested and where appropriate repaired to an "as new" standard in our own service centre or factory. They come fully boxed with all accessories and full instructions and are all backed up by a complete 1 year on site warranty."

Had a Foxsat-HD Grade A from them - couldn't tell it was anything other than brand new. Of course that model has no moving parts so was confident with their 1yr warranty - and they sent the HDMI cable that was meant to be included, but wasn't, straight away,

Personally had the lesser PVR-9150T model (new) for 18m+ and while it isn't perfect, it's pretty close.

I've had 2 so called refurbished items from Humax, they were both brand new.
#6
What's the problem, it pretty clearly states it's graded?

However, you can buy a new one for less than £150 from Amazon and Richer Sounds, so it's up to you whether the extra year warranty and brand new is worth an extra £25 or not.

Compared to the price of the latest 500GB version (£220) either a new or refurb of the older model is certainly worth getting.

My problem is the EXTRA £16 surcharge for carriage GRrrrr!!!
#8
yes wait for hd version

Depends where you live I guess. In S.East 3 to 5 day delivery is a more reasonable £6.

yes wait for hd version
Even in NW London M25 it's still 2012 before Freeview HD reaches people = LONG time to wait; though by then the Freeview HD recorders should be a more reasonable price.

I'm waiting for this to come down in price...

Humax HD Twin Tuner - £329
#11
An HD version is meant to come out this month. So it'll be worth the wait. With the HD version as well you can use a USB stick and stream to your PC and do a few other tricks. With this model your stuck having to record to either VHS or a DVD recorder, if you want to share or keep the content.

The machine the poster is talking about above (iaas67). That's the older humax 9200 which is a few years old, this is the newer 9300 which should be free of these problems.

Beware Humax machines. I have had two over the years and they eventually start getting problematic - specifically they will take an AGE to respond to remote control commands, which is VERY VERY annoying.

I think Humax sorted this out with an over the air update (well mine works fine now after suffering with the same problem you described).

As stated above, this was fixed in the recent OTA update and the patch can be downloaded from the Humax website for anybody who missed it. My 9200t had the same annoying problem (which was due to changes to Freeview after the boxes were released) and now behaves like new. Yes, an HD decoder would be very nice, but we can't all afford one. The Humax machines are still very good for the price.
#14
Humax machines are rubbish. My parents have had loads of problems with theirs and now it has packed up again. They put it in for repair but Comet have told them that it would cost more to repair than to buy a new one. So avoid any Humax products as they are a waste of money.
#15
Humax PVR's are great, I've had an 8000T and a 9200T and have been really happy with them. Really easy to use and very stable.

You must be one of the few lucky people. Humax products are rubbish and should be scrapped.
#17
shame , they are a great bit of kit at the rite price . iv had one a few year and its great and juat had another off a mate for £30 :)
#18
Why as this been expired, still showing as in stock
#19
I'm a big Humax fan. I had the PVR800T which my mum has got now since I upgraded to the excellent PVR9300T. The EPG comes up almost instantly now since the recent firmware update.

My review for the 9300T is the top one if your interested

Humax are the best available, I have 3 of them, no problems whatsoever.

You must be unlucky.

We have 3 X 9200's in this house plus my daughter is still running my original single tuner one [model 8000??]

As has already been stated many times, any issues have been cured with software updates.

They are excellent machines compared to what else is out there IMHO....


Your comments, cambourne03, are wholey uprepresentative of the vast majority of owners out there.
#22
Yeah have had my Humax for a few years now and have no problems. I am waiting for the Humax HDR-Fox T2, I know it will be expensive but think it will be worth it

I think if you read the feedback here and elsewhere you'll find that you're one of the few unlucky people. Most people are very happy with them. They do the job they're designed to do, they do it well, and they're reliable.

Likewise, I've got three 8000T's that have been running for years now without any problems.
#25
Any idea why this has been expired ?. Says it is still in stock and can add to basket
#26
will the new HD model reduce the prices of existing Humax HD boxes?
#27
I have a 9200T which I am gonna upgrade to this 9300T as I can flog mine on fleabay for £65 and then its only £70 to upgrade.

Anyone got one of these 9300T's? Is the picture better through HDMI on a 42" LCD vs Scart?

You will be lucky to get £30.00 never mind £65.00

I've owned the 9150T, which my girlfriend now has no problems. I own the 9300T and the Foxsat HD recorder, no problems. The 9150T must have been going 2 years now. All of them had no problems, if any problems crop up, you usually get an update.
