Currently I have a Humax 9150t but am looking to upgrade to HD, mainly for HD channels but also to upgrade the box to one with HDMI and optical out.
My area won't get Freeview HD until next year, but i would quite like it for the World Cup, so need to decide quick!!
I can't go from having a PVR to not having one, so i quite like the Humax Foxsat PVR, currently £230, plus £30 odd for a dish with me installing it.
Looking at it though i believe i will lose a couple of channels, but possibly have more in the future?
So then i thought i would wait until freeview HD comes here, Humax have just announced their Freeview HD PVR for July, at £350, figure by the time i get it here it would be similarly priced to the Freesat one
I don't really think i NEED to have it for the World Cup, so i suppose that shouldn't really be an issue, just don't really know what to do.
If i can receive freeview with my aerial will i be able to receive freeview HD through it, it looks to be an old, tiny aerial but seems to work ok atm, obviously if i had to buy a new aerial that would bump the cost up loads.
Perhaps i should install a dish, then buy a freesat box (non PVR) and run alongside what i have now, then sell it after the world cup and wait until Freeview HD comes here
Any help appreciated :)
