Got one yesterday and its nearly as loud as an xbox. EPG takes 10 mins to load every time you turn it on. The EPG is a mess too.
It even woke me up in the middle of the night (and I'd had a few beers too!).
Heard good things about Humax but this machine is just a joke. My Wharfedale WDTR1600 was better in every way except it didnt record two channels at once.
Its going back to Argos!
