I have had this model, for four full years. It was £249 then, so in my opinion, for an old bit of kit, this is way too much. I've seen refurbs for £49 previously but not about right now.
The £49 refurbs would be the single tuner HB1000S, this HDR is still a current Freesat 'Freetime' model with built in wifi. Thought £149 is the regular refurb price, vs £179+ for new with 2 years warranty. Your choice, not voting!
I agree with Queer

As the model was released in 2015, can I have a link to the supplier of your time machine? X)

We got ours last year (October) to replace the Sky box we ditched. It's a decent machine, but the firmware can be a bit flaky at times, needing to be restarted more than the Sky box did.

Still, it does Freesat recording, Netflix, YouTube, iPlayer, ITV Hub or STV Player, Demand 5, 4 for all, streaming from NAS drives etc. If it did Amazon Prime as well, it would almost be a perfect device if you don't own a smart TV.


Quite right! I blame my mild dyslexia for mistaking my HDR1000S, for this item; apologies.
Mines a refurb had no probs, if you do then send it back. That's why we have warranties but you pays your money and takes your choice.
Had two refurbs from them, first was DOA but they replaced it sharpish and the second is still going strong.
I wouldn't touch a refurb. had enough trouble with brand new humax units.

I would love to swap my sky box for one of these sadly the Memsahib has no interest even though she never uses the Sky channels. She just does not want to learn a new system.
Has your wife given you permission to use the internet?
Grow a set. The fight back starts now.

Wonder if they are returns because of the dodgy free time app issue. £139 on the webpage -

I bought Humax Refurbs before, always like new and never an issue. That said if there is an issue you have 14 days to check it out and they have to pay the postage if defective. £146 price includes next day delivery.

You can often pick up brand new BT boxes on gumtree or schpock for less than £25. I have 3 including the last one which is the HD version which was a tenner.

No warranties, but worth the risk in my opinion.

Never use Humax Direct, every unit they have and replace during the warranty fails!!

Have they improved their remotes on their newer units? I've got one of the older Humax Foxsat+ HD recorders and the responsiveness and lag is absolutely shocking.
I've got a Fox T2 (Freeview) - not sure if that's the same. One fix worth trying is this
1. Switch on your TV set and the Humax product that you wish to change the remote code.
2. Make sure that any other Humax product that you do not wish to control is in Standby or powered OFF at the mains.
3. Point the remote control towards the remote control sensor of the target receiver.
4. Press and hold the 0 and OK buttons simultaneously for 5 seconds until the PVR button on the remote stays red.
5. A message will appear on the TV screen:
You can change the remote control mode.
Press a Numeric Key (1 ~ 6) to select the mode
Current mode: Mode 1
6. Press a NUMERIC button (from 1 to 6) to select a different mode.
7. A message confirming the change of Mode will appear on screen.
My remote is still a bit laggy, but it seems to work much better - the erratic remote was driving me mad!
Thanks for the advice. I will take a look at this, much appreciated

Surely better to buy a BT YouView DTR-T2100 500GB box for about £50 on ebay - comes with YouView, Netflix, Now TV and all catchup channels.
Or better still, from cex for £55 which comes with a years warranty

Fantastic box

This isn't a good deal at all

Unfortunately, and unusually for Humax, the FVP4000T has been problematic since its first release:

https://myhumax.org/forum/forum/fvp-4000t-1

There have been goodness knows how many firmware releases to try to sort the problems out, but every time one issue is fixed, another one pops up - random reboots at present.

Check out the Amazon reviews. This model should never have been released on the market. Theoretically, it's brilliant - but only when it chooses to work.

You can buy these new for £149.99. Richer Sounds will beat that price by £5. So £145 all in brand new. Why buy one refurbished?? Some of the sites online give 2 year warranty.

I just bought the 1tb model from them today. They price matched at £179.99 and then knocked £5 off. Very little haggling required. Try looking at Pricespy.co.uk. Great comparison site. Queues can be busy pending on the size of the store.

Do you have to have high speed broadband for this ?

Not for the core PVR functionality but would be recommended for the catch up TV functionality like iPlayer, ITV hub etc, would probably work on slower connections, just not in HD for the catch up TV....
Do you have to have high speed broadband for this ?
A bit cheaper than RRP but IMO these are pricey for only 500GB storage and the names just make it sound like they are trying to ape an overpriced coffee at starbucks ;)

Seriously, Humax do make fine PVRs but if you shop around and are fine with used (which basically includes refurb anyway) far better deals can be had. I recently got a Humax HDR-1000S 2TB (Freesat PVR) on eBay for just over £100. Yes the 1000S is an old model but who cares, it still records TV just as well, you don't really need the latest model with PVRs and can save a lot by getting last years (or couple of years) model.....

Mine powers on from red light to green just using the green circle to turn on and vice versa. Have you tried pressing STB then green circle, not being sarcastic.
After it's been idle for a couple of hours and the light is red, I click on STB, then the top right power button, the red light goes out but the unit doesn't power up.
If I turn it off from the mains and do the same sequence, the rest light goes out and green comes on.
Sorry only just seen this. It sounds like it's faulty to me. Fingers crossed they are good at sorting it.
Yep and yep - cheers

just an update... Humax arranged for a courier to collect and exchange the receiver, which went well. problem fixed - no more problems with standby! (customer service was ok, but did take a couple of follow up phone calls)

4) Remotes work well but Humax make the BT TV box so if you have one of these you need to only have one device on at a time.
There is a secret to avoid the BT TV (or any Humax conflict) :) with the BT TV box powered off, and your Humax box on, press and hold OK and 0 on the Humax remote for 5 seconds. You should get a prompt on screen to change the remote channel (frequency) - press between 2-5) and your done! Works great, and Logitech Harmony remotes recognise this too 8)
Thanks did this on the FoxSAT unit and it worked fine, took me a few goes this is a longer guide if anyone has issues.
Many thanks! Remember the newer YouView units are locked to code set 1 so you need to select a number from 2 to 6. The default for the FoxSAT is code set one same as the new YouView units.

Has anybody bought one of these in the past?
Do they last?
I got a couple of the PVR 1000 first one fine, second one was having issues with recording. I ran ran some checks on the drive (took it out and connect to a PC) bad sectors - Ran Spinrite on it. Reinstalled all fine. Both units now >4 years old used daily.
A couple of things about the Humax units
1) Picture quality is MUCH better than the units built into most TV (I've a Sony and the SAT image on the Humax is much better than the TV's SAT tuner) I fact I'd say of all the receivers the Humax picture quality on FreeSAT is very good. Audio is flawless
2) The Humax units I've seen are really well made and they run cool with virtually no noise except for the HD
3) On some model you can connect a USB drive and copy programs off the disk. However HD recordings are encrypted. The cheapest way to record unencrypted HD is with a Raspberry Pi and MyGiga DVB-2 USB stick £14 with a TV Antenna.
4) Remotes work well but Humax make the BT TV box so if you have one of these you need to only have one device on at a time.
5) If you are used to Sky you might be surprised how good the picture is and the units are cool to the touch!
6) The Power supply is built into the box and is well made I've had Humax kit that is 8 years old still going strong!
7) The newer humax models support on demand TV and you can push Youtube from your phone to the Humax (Andriod) not sure about other Phones.8) The older PVR TV units can use modified firmware allowing FreeSAT channels and unencrypted Astra in the same channel list. (There will be no or series record EPG for non FreeSAT channels)
Great find! Heat++
do the Astra channels include sport?
No
Bought twice from Humaxdirect in about 4 years. First was a HD-Fox-T2 Freeview (add a USB drive and it becomes an HDR) and the one that arrived on Tuesday was a Humax HDR-1100S 500GB Freesat.
The Freeview always has this ghosting problem, like encryption scrambling around the edges of images when the USB device is plugged in, but a few power offs and on fixes it. Without the USB it works as it should every time.
The Freesat gave me a shock tonight, as it appeared to have powered itself off. PSU showed no green light, after swapping cables and everything, leaving the PSU unplugged for 10 minutes, and trying again it came back to life.
The "Graded" stuff is a bit hit and miss, though it does come with the same 1 year guarantee.
You pays your money and takes your choice, but Freesat has way more interesting channels than Freeview.
Same here but with 2 new Freesat boxes. They kept going off. For some unknown reason, after 30 to 45 minutes they list power. I returned the first one and swapped it. When the second one did the same, I just asked for a refund. I am ditching sky and need a reliable Freesat recorder. Any advice?
Freesat set-top boxes with record seems to be a niche market, with Humax seeming to have the most products. There seems to be Bush and Manhattan offering lower cost options.
Freesat advertise these ones, including a Sagecom.http://www.freesat.co.uk/get-freesat/all-boxes



Manhattan is the best of these, but difficult to source, and the Grundig,Bush and Goodmans are the same but in different cases.

We bought the white 1010 wifi model last month as an upgrade for the old Foxsat box we had.

To be honest we've not recorded any programmes on it yet as you can watch anything you miss on the built in catch up services.
Incognitoso
What are you getting with free sat ?? All good TV channels need to pay .
+ High range smart TV have built in dual antenas Freeview + Sat + old type antena
Connect HDD via USB and record : )
But now all this sat and Freeview - Replacing by IP TV
BT Fibre coming to all houses so speed to stream dual or 3 stream at the same time will be now problem NONE cable NONE antenas NO Recorders as IP TV give pre -recorded

Not everyone can get Freeview due to location or the lack of having an aerial fitted, but still may want to watch live TV and record a few things....

So that has freesat inside,sorry I don't know much about these things could somebody explain what you need
With free view a standard aerial is needed.
With freesat you need a satellite dish (Ie previously had sky or had your own dish fitted).
Thanks

just ditched sky and hooked up the 500gb, straight swap and no complaints. These also have an app for netflix built in which was a bonus. for non techies, 2tb is a good option, for best value, by the 500gb and upgrade yourself.

Ozodimal, was the remote you recieved white or black as the HDR1010s originally shipped with a white remote? I'm just wondering if it's a bit of pot luck as to what remote you get.
The remote was white, like the box, and both appeared brand new. Sorry not to make myself clear. I've got it running from my old Sky dish which I now have to upgrade to HDplus (ie quad LNB and additional coax down lead kit). Got in mind this one and would appreciate comments:-

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/120608902844?_trksid=p2055119.m1438.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT

Or this one with a single coax:-

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/270460946585?_trksid=p2055119.m1438.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT

Latter probably better for me, as I have an older dish than a Mk4 and will need an LNB adapter

Thanks

It arrived today (16/03/2016) and checked out all OK. Remote is the "universal" type on the RHS of Majumba's pic. All the accessories were neatly coiled, etc, in sealed packets and the 1010S itself appears to be in mint condition. Very pleased with the item and indeed with Freesat. Thanks OP!

Ozodimal, was the remote you recieved white or black as the HDR1010s originally shipped with a white remote? I'm just wondering if it's a bit of pot luck as to what remote you get.

For anyone else who has ordered one of the refurbs, did you get a programmable remote to be able to control the TV, and if so which model did you buy? Looking to get one myself and would prefer a programmable one if possible.
Thanks Majumba. Your HDR 1000S remote doesn't seem to match the picture in the Manual, where it says that the TV button will blink once when pressed. If it doesn't then it suggests that Humax's claim that refurbished items (including ancillaries) will "look and work as new" is not the case with your remote. You have a 1 year warranty and it should be honoured! Have you tried going through the TV setting procedure ignoring the fact that the TV button does not light? It might work if you haven't. Obviously something I'll have to look out for (same remote on the 1010S).

The remote I received doesn't control the TV like they normally do, which is really annoying. I've been in touch with Humax who were going to swap it until they found out it was a refurb. Grrr!!!
Have you viewed the instructions for harmonising the remote to your TV in the appropriate manual (1000 or 1010) via the links in my post #86 above? If so, are you saying that the codes given don't work?
The codes don't word as the remote is not universal. Humax confirmed this. I'm not saying everyone will receive a non-universal remote, but I did.
The universal control I got with my HD-1000S is on the right and the non-universal remote I got with the HDR-1000S is on the left. You can see that the STB and TV buttons don't illuminate. Some other buttons have been moved around too.

have bought myself one. mentions nowtv above have bought myself the black Friday 6 month free net nowtv box, also have a chromecast that provides 3 free months.

can I set up an account through the humax box then? will it let me record these channels & therefore be better or is it blocked from letting u record
In a word Humax S*** will never buy any of their products ever again fault occurred on mine just after 2 years after a re-tune same happened to my sisters both new products and CS wanted to me to pay over £100 to have it repaired and didn't want to compensate me in anyway what so ever, £160 for 2 years service unit looks like it just came out of the box Humax never again rubbish product rubbish company!
Must admit, the service we've received from Humax has been excellent. We bought a refurb from them not long ago and it was indistinguishable from new.
I just bought one earlier for £114.10 including the compulsory min £7 delivery

Use code HUMAXBD1 for 10% off

Be careful with Humax refurb. If it goes faulty outside a year, the customer services team won't help even though they should. They will try and sell you another one instead. My complaint is ongoing. Spend the extra, buy new and avoid the hassle. For a bit more you can pick up a new one from Argos.


"for a bit more" as in 1/3 of the price more?

Bought one of these refurb units for a similar price a year ago. Still working perfectly, great kit
Ordered using the discount code. Thank you.
Does this have youview tv guide? to scroll back a few days for on demand stuff? its for a 63 year old so ease of use is first priority.

Got one 2 days ago, delivered today. After 3-4 hours of testing decided to return it. Decoding quality of non hd channels is really bad, worse than my Goodmans. Menu guide navigation is also slower, not happy overall. I don't think I will trust Humax products anymore after this. I have had great expectation from the product, now disappointed.

Surprised at that, as most reviews are excellent. Perhaps a dud?
Ordered one. One year warranty too.
Ordered one, deal still active.

does this model include netflix out of the box or does it require a update

Edited By: shakey1981 on Mar 29, 2016 12:02
Few months down the line no issues at all box looked new to me. Very impressed with my 1st Humax so happy to be not funding Wayne Rooney and the rest of em anymore
purchased. thank you. :D

I saw a mention of firmware,
I'm beta testing the new firmware that includes netflix on my 1010

When will this firmware be available to the public? This is the first mention I've seen of netflix on these boxes.

I was planning on getting an ariel instaled and going down the youview route for th sake of not having to get a seperate box for netflix but if this is getting netflix it'll save me having to shell out for an ariel.

For reference: my PC with 3 tuners, 32Gb RAM, fast drives and a 3.3Ghz hex core started to struggle above 10 simultaneous SD recordings, started dropping channels at 14. They're doing pretty good getting 4 out of low end hardware. Especially if they're HD streams.
What PVR software (I'm hoping Windows) do you use please?
Windows is not really very good at being a PVR I'm afraid Linux is king when it comes to PVR setups.

After many years and setups I find it much better than Linux due to better support for TBS drivers. ArgusTV/Win10 is rock solid. I find Windows as a front end more problematic as Kodi cannot maintain focus so here Linux based OSes are better IMHO. I run FireTV/Kodi and OpeneElec boxes with a 4 tuner TBS DVB-T2 card on the backend.



Also fire tv kodi and openelec are both Linux based.
Can't comment on Argus TV as I haven't used it but a headless Linux server that does everything, file server, Dlna, PVR, cloud backup etc. Is what I use and it has been faultless.

I also use kodi clients for true multiroom that can all access shared recordings, live tv etc independently. I tested recording four channels whilst playing 4 movies and it didn't fall over.

Shame this is Freest, been looking for a Human Freeview deal for a while. Heat anyway.

Thanks
I have a refurbed 1000s and it's been going strong for a while now.

Good points: Excellent pic quality on HD channels, pretty quiet, no subs required, catchup nicely integrated into EPG, will play video content via USB/DLNA, Showcase (TV picks from Freesat) can be handy to skim through weekly to pick up stuff to record, YouTube/BBC Sport+News apps a nice bonus, handy Search facility that picks up progs from the third input char onwards.

Bad points: Pointlessly clicky buttons on remote, can't re-order channels (can delete them though which is what I do), adds new channels without prompting you first, UI is clunky (too many menu levels in places and criminal lack of coloured button shortcuts), front panel LED often has massively distracting scrolling text (insulation tape fixed that for me!), a couple of apps have pay-per-view content which totally goes against the name Freesat in my books.

It's not a perfect box (and some buggy firmware updates haven't helped, though the latest update finally seems OK), but on balance, well worth the purchase, especially if you're ex-Sky.

It may be the slimmest but it's relying on a not so slim sub to get the depth of sound so you need to stick that somewhere. Anyway have some heat because it's 6:22pm

Good post OP. Unfortunately £22 pounds for postage to Northern Ireland. I could but a new one for that much extra. So fed up with companies using overpriced couriers for Northern Ireland when Parcelforce will deliver here for buttons.

Is it still the case that the HD recordings can not be transferred to Windows for editing?
From what I understand freeview is for from an aerial and freesat if signal off a satellite dish. Don't know if any do both. Been looking at the DTR models myself, sound better than the HDR? Can't remember what the difference is though, there's even a dtr-t6000 for hi-res recording of sport.
I have the 1TB wifi-less model. It's a great bit of kit. You can connect it to your internet router/firewall, and there's a FreeSat app for Android which in theory allows you to set the timer on the set top box; in practise I find it doesn't work reliably.

Is there some code to get shipping for £6 ? it shows the shipping as £7 on the shipping page and as £7 when I add it to the basket

Just checked it myself - looks like it's £7 - I'll amend post. Sure it was £6 when I posted last night!

Why are Freesat boxes all so ugly?
Better looking than a TiVo box tbh

See what I need is a freesat box with a built-in nowtv app. That would tidy up a few things
Bought this earlier this week. Wouldn't say it was factory sealed and completely new but it's all fine.
It comes with a one year warranty which is all I could find that a brand new one would come with too?
