i have the flat version, it's great, and a better display than the curved
Out of stock :(
Shame this is curved. I got the flat version of this last month for a similar price and Yodel smashed it on delivery, last one so no replacement :(. I was gutted but I couldn't live with a curved screen.

Why would Humax send out a 2nd box for what is likely to be a compatibility problem with the Sony TV? I assume you had no other TV that you could have tried to connect the Humax to?
Agree with above negative comments about Humax customer service. Once ordered a Humax refurb Freeview PVR and the HDMI wouldn't work with my Sony TV. Turns out to be a moderately well known issue where each manufacturer blames the other (Sony HDMI is perfect on all other devices). Humax CS were deeply reluctant to send a 2nd box to try so I gave up for a refund and never found out if that model can work with my Sony. Pity as my very first SD PVR was a Humax and was great to begin with, till Freeview frequency rejigging by the broadcasters plus god awful software updates from Humax destroyed that box.

It's primarily a Freesat box so it's probably not for you. It is however, worth more than £20.

While LG TV's might not be to everyones liking for reasons others have mentioned as a pure price deal I thought it was good and hence the post. This is a 2016 model that can process High Dynamic range content encoded using either HDR10 or Dolby Vision, all other brands only support HDR10. The lowest price now is £1799, for me personally the saving was worth it as it was on my shortlist.

If this is actually a freesat HD tuner (as opposed to just a satellite HD tuner) then it should go off and discover all the 100s of channels and put them all into the Freesat HD EPG. That's how my old Sony works. Try the automatic tuning mode and enter your post code if it asks.

Just be aware that the channels numbers are different to those on Freeview HD.

Otherwise, pretty good deal. I found it really useful having freesat on the bedroom TV as there are more channels (such as the +1s).

It's my understanding from reading reviews that oled is far better than LED. Now, I know LED (and thus TV) has HDR, but I was under the impression that oled is so superior to LED that it blows the HDR function out the water. Am I wrong? For this price you could get a decent oled TV. Plus, doesn't HDR need a HDR source? There aren't really any HDR sources out yet, and when they are out surely oled HDR would be out and reasonably priced - in which case, is this TV expensive and redundant? There isn't a point in paying a premium for an HDR TV for future proofing if by the time the source is out, much better TVs are available. Am I right?


There is 2 HDR devices out, Samsung 4K HDR bluray player and Panasonic HDR bluray player.

OLED v HDR set depends how the individual sees and likes the different visual fidelity.

I work in Currys so I am lucky enough to spend a lot of time around the different TVs and trust me the LG is not all it's cracked up to be - motion blur is horrendous on them.
The reason for this is that it is not OLED but OLED backlighting. This means that it is no different for motion than any other LG TV.

Just wait. LG's OLED will be dropping below a grand during the summer. If you're gonna pay 700 for 4k means you really appreciate quality and then you can pay another 200 for the best. Just imagine buying this now and stumble upon an OLED deal 2 months later. Bummer...

From last years Samsung's you basically want JU7000 upwards at minimum in my opinion. This 7500 is basically the JU7000 with a curve and slightly better response time.

Does anyone have any idea when the Hisense H8 series (50H8C & 55H8C) will be released in the UK? There is very little info on the internet & these are the models I'm holding out for.
I decided to go for this TV as I really needed one due to other TV breaking

I'm not sure how I feel about it, I've noticed a lot of lag on Netflix 4K, and playing Uncharted 4, it doesn't look very good and it feel very choppy and laggy, despite the game running very smooth on my older Sharp TV.

Hmm...
If you're planning on gaming on this TV, don't. Unplayable input lag.

Can anyone else confirm?
will SD content look good on this set
SD content looks awful on any set.
Wish they would ditch the SD channels now
Nonsense, SD looks fine on my plasma, looked great on CRT too. It's modern TVs that make SD look terrible. :-) I'd love to see more HD channels too though SD will be here for a while yet.
Ok for those interested, the TV is up, wall mounted on a cantilever bracket, the picture is awesome on Netflix 4k and superb on HD channels, I'm no AV geek or expert, just a family man who wanted a decent ATV for us all.
Not had a chance to try all feature but the switch between inputs is slick and it works well withy humax box.

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?

Only 10-bit panels with HDMI 2.0a deliver true HDR - this is an 8-bit. However, it will be able to play HDR content in a limited capacity because it has a frimware update to HDMI 2.0a.

To reduce this confusion a new standard has been agreed called Ultra HD Premium for all panels that are 10-bit and therefore can deliver true HDR. Hope that helps!

Umm isn't HDR new for 2016 TVs?? As it looks like this is a 2015 TV based on JL reviews.
Digged a bit on the HDR and found this in avforums which is a bit of a let down if you were keen on HDR10.

Although the JU7500 doesn't support high dynamic range (HDR) it does include Peak Illuminator for improving the dynamic range.
I have been looking at this TV for the last couple of weeks. From the reviews on John Lewis it sounds like there is an upgrade that enables hdr. It's also currently £749 at ask direct or £759 at Crampton and Moore

might seem like a silly question to some - but does this need an existing satellite dish or does it come with one(_;)
With all due respect, I'd say you might have been on to something when you said it might seem like a silly question.. to some.. but not me though ;). Now that aside, it does not come with a dish. I think most people start of with Sky, get fed up of paying their excessive bills every month and switch to Freesat. When you cancel Sky, they don't take the dish away as you effectively own it. IT is then a simple matter of plugging the existing satellite cable into the back of the Freesat box.
thanks for your patience and for taking time to reply, now i get it ...appreciated :)

> Slower to boot up than Sky.

The slow boot time is quite annoying and none of the firmware updates have improved this. It does mean you need to take the Humax out of standby first before you turn on your other gear (TV, 5.1 system etc.).

> Having to click 3 buttons before getting to "Favourites" each time, is annoying.

I delete all the channels I don't need so I don't have to use Favourites at all. Snag is that the Humax adds brand new channels automatically without prompting (which is very irritating indeed) and I have to manually delete them (which you can only do when the Humax isn't recording). The lack of channel reordering is highly frustrating too - can't have BBC One HD as the 1st channel, BBC Two HD as the 2nd etc.

> The "clicking" sound on most of the remote buttons, soon gets very annoying!

My remote packed in (took immense strength to get the buttons to work) and I bought a "silent" clone replacement for less than half the price of the orignal. Different button layout again, but all of the functions are available and I've got used to it now - it's a better remote simply because of the button silence if nothing else :-)

I think the worst thing about the UI is indeed the lack of shortcuts (no use of the 4 coloured buttons - well used by Sky boxes - is a criminal offence in my books) - trying playing something from USB or DLNA requires way too many presses for example.

my mate was paying sky £50 month for all channels,,he has cancelled and now has same channels for one off (fee) of £60,ok he doesn't have 7 day epg or all the fancy bells and whistles sky had,,but to be able to watch all same programmes for said price,,he is well chuffed and no going back

But sadly the supplier could hop off with his cash at any moment and the line could go dead. He had zero come back as what he's doing and what the supplier is doing is illegal.

Obviously you save a vast amount of money but you pay your money and take your chance. He could be left stranded next week.

There are also plenty of boxes that do have 7 day EPG. But they need regular updates and you need to know how to do this. They're not for those with no tech knowledge.

Nonsense. I got one with no knowledge whatsoever. Took a few days to learn everything. It's actually best to FTP into the box using a program like FileZilla which means you just drag and drop from your PC over your network, without having to do anything with the receiver. Samba is also a good program you can use within your receiver.
If you're inpatient and unwilling to learn, then yes, it's not for you.

Nonsense. I got one with no knowledge whatsoever. Took a few days to learn everything. It's actually best to FTP into the box using a program like FileZilla which means you just drag and drop from your PC over your network, without having to do anything with the receiver. Samba is also a good program you can use within your receiver.

If you're inpatient and unwilling to learn, then yes, it's not for you.


​Not nonsense. I've worked with enough IT illiterate numpties over the years, and you can deffo forget Samba and FTP.
Another thing. These little gift cards that are the sole reason to buy these and get free SKY. The money funds terrorism.

you can pick up a Humax/BT T2100 box for the same price (~£59) on eBay. It's not Freesat but it's excellent.
£58 from cex with two year warranty. Fantastic boxes.
Can you transfer recordings from the T2100 to a PC?

no, I don't think you can

you need a HDR-FOX T2 for that (?)

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....

I have the older model. It has saved me a fortune since leaving sky. I now have Freesat and NowTV entertainment, it now costs my about £3.50 amonth (buying cheap NowTV offers) instead of £36 and I watch exactly the same channels.
Can you record NowTV channels on to the Humax?
Thanks

No you can't, but there is no need as the NowTV has most things on demand so that you can watch it when you want to.

Way cheaper to buy a BT branded Humax box (although based on a different model), unless I'm missing something?
This is a PVR with series record it uses SAT inputs and can record 2 channels at the same time.
It has a 1TB hard disk and you can series record etc.
Files from the HD can be coped to USB (SD only HD files are encrypted and can only be played on the player that recorded them - Shame
Agree the BT Humax unit is cheaper but this is a lot more capable this can also stream content from the youtube app on Android etc...
It supports UPNP and can stream MKV, AVI files locally or remote (SMB etc)
Finally this is FREESAT not Freeview!

Ahh, missed that it was Freesat, all good :)

But is it exactly the same channels
I thought sky have a lot more channels than nowtv plus now tv sky channels are catch up only ?


​you only miss out on a couple of channels. if you look through your sky TV guide you think you have tons of channels but now many are +1 ect and ones that no one ever watches. you can use your now tv box as a catch up but you can also watch all films live and it's the same for the movies

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
Can you use an external hdd on these?
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.

Good news in regards to the panel though.

Looks mighty nice. Sadly my search for the ever increasingly elusive 37 inch telly must continue!
This one is the curved one. Possibly if you ignore the depth, it may be the same width as the 37 inch when look at it with a flat front. J
That was my initial thought... Or hope anyway.
Checked the specs, and it's literally 1 inch too wide to fit in the only practical place it could go. As tempted as I am, I don't think the landlord would appreciate me chipping away at his walls!
Thanks for the thought though.

Its a piece of rubbish - better to get yourslef onto ebay and buy a used or new Talktalk youview box DN370T or better still a DN371 - Got mine for £15 - better than this junk it records two channels and has all the iplayer gadgets and no you dont need to have a talktalk account to use it unlike the Virgin Tivo boxes for sale on ebay which are about as useful as a chocolate tampon - although if you can get one for a tenner you could always open it up and use the 500gb/1tb western digital green hard drives in your pc! Just remember the Tivo hard drives are green so arent that fast.

What are you on about? This is not Freeview (with added internet PPV services), how can you be comparing two different formats of receiving a television signal....have you even thought about why there are differing ways to receive a television signal?

Now let us get onto your other piece of fiction 'piece of rubbish'...not everyone is you...whilst I appreciate being able to record two channels on my Freesat box (yes, you may have guessed it, my aerial is lousy and I appreciate the choice of channels Freesat affords me) not everyone needs that.

If this is 'junk' then equally the Freeview based Youview options are 'junk' to those that cannot use them.

Ive just bought this from the liverpool branch....and got it for £378! and its awesome....

No issues with fast moving sports, sound quality before ive even connected it to my AV is really decent. The built in OS and apps are really simple to use and contain quite a bit. Everything ive cast so far to my chromecast has streamed really well and looks good quality and the reason i say that is because i wasnt sure how it would cope on a 49" compared to a 32".

Plus 6 years warrenty and i have to admit the service by richer sounds is second to none!!

Mrs Loyal works for Waitrose so I got a partner card which gets you 25% off at John Lewis, apart from electrical gear which is 12% I believe, but they don't ship electricals abroad.
Like of course stuff like that is way too large for her lug over when she flies over every couple of months but you can get some decent deals over here that balance it out when you strike whilst the iron is hot.
This is my fourth flat panel ...... my first was a 32 inch Panasonic I got around 2005 which was stupid money, like 1500 quid I think. Then about a couple or three years later I bought a 40 inch Sony which was even more ridiculous dough like about 1800 quid I think, then I got a 50 inch Samsung around 4 or 5 years ago that was 'only' around a monkey.
Been making do with a 32 inch Samsung over here which my old man bought before he died, was around 6 years old and did the job but I wanted something new.
I was unsure about a curved screen and if I'm honest had I been going to lob it up on the wall I'd not have bought it but sat on an AV unit you can swivel it about a bit. That all said n done as yet I've not noticed any of the glare issues people speak about but I've only had it a week or so, there ain't been much sun shining in the day and even if there was the 'brat bin' is pretty dark anyway.
I really fiddled about with the picture settings last night, kind of going with what an 'expert' from avforums.com advises and it's made quite a difference, very happy with it, and the 'game mode' preset is excellent
Other than my 'Lucky Goldstar' I've not really owned anything even worth admitting too to be honest, I bought what I think was called a Vistro? 42inch plasma about 10years ago for £800, which at the time i thought was the Mut's nuts, but was probably horrific even by AV standards back then.
I then bought a 39inch Polaroid 720p LCD TV for £400, which i gave away a couple years later as the screen tearing was terrible whilst playing Xbox360 games or watching fast moving sports.
Just before buying the LG i was using a 32inch CRT type BUSH TV for around a year - so you can see that my original question on which TV to buy was fueled purely on the basis that i just haven't a clue what a good picture looks like :)
Based on user reviews and some first hand impressions of TVs I've seen in store I've mainly been looking at Sony BRAVIAs and 2014-15 6 series Samsungs, all of which are around the £500-600 mark (which at the moment is the top end of my budget) I do want to see this LG in store and the Panasonic if possible before i pull the trigger though.
If i do end up buying one of these and it explodes or runs off with my girlfriend however, you'll have first dibs on the "I told you so's" ;)
Thanks for the reply

No need to thank me mate but you welcome nonetheless, of all the tellies I've listed above the only one there was a problem with was the 32 inch Samsung my old man bought over here in Austria.

Being the older generation and having paid a lot of dough for that set at the time the salesman talked him in to an extended warranty and luckily, or unluckily whichever way you look at it, the thing came in to use a couple of months before the time was up. The screen just went, like it switched on and there was sound but no picture at all.

Stöhr the local shop me old man got it from came and took it away, a week or two later it returned and all fine. To be fair that was at least three years ago now, never been a problem since then but I just wanted something new for me gaming.

Did me research and hunted around the usual places like mediamarkt.at and saturn.at and amazon.de till one of the half a dozen or so I was interested in had a biting price.

See I could be 'relieved of my duties' over here tomorrow and then I got a hell of a lot of gear I got to shift back to the UK so I really resisted big things like televisions for years but it came to the point I missed my proper telly, my home rig of Denon and Arcam delights, my Q Acoustics floor standers etc way too much and thus treated myself to all this gear over the last week or two.

As that irritating froggie who used to play for the frontwheels and jaw-dees said in his L'Oréal advert :{ because I'm worth it

Me well informed? Nah not at all so I'd not recommend anything in particular apart from not recommending Lucky Goldstar because they just have a bad name, bad image and the odd person I know who has had one had dramas with them.
I very recently 'upgraded' to a Samsung UE 48 J 6300 series curved which is two inches smaller than what I got back home in the UK but it was a decent price for a telly as well received by reviewers as this was one was when it launched last summer, I got it for €599.http://www.mediamarkt.at/de/product/_samsung-ue-48-j-6370-suxzg-curved-led-tv-1406120.html
Oh and I then went against all my extreme AV beliefs by not just investing in a 'one box solutuion' soundbar on Sunday just gone, but also purchasing a Samsung one at that.
Hmmmm I am more your Yamaha, Onkyo and Arcam kind of geezer on that front but Media Markt were doing a one day special on the Samsung HW-J650 which I picked up for €256. It's back up to €399 now so that really was a great deal for another product that has had pretty solid reviews from outlets I tend to trust as much as is possible in this game.
So there you have it, the darkest home entertainment secrets of a Brit marooned in Austria indefinitely revealed (_;) I hope you're happy now.
Nice, I've looked at the Samsungs previously, I was on the verge of buying the UE55H6400 last year when John Lewis had one on sale for £550 but i was too late and missed it :(

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:-

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).

PS; 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!

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.

Bargain. I had the equivalent Humax Freeview box with an external HDD - worked a treat.
Alternatively, If you have half decent technical PC knowledge and an extra £30 you could consider a Wetek OpenElec box with dual Sat tuners for £99. With a bit of installing and tweaking you can get it to run Kodi + TVHeadend etc and make it a full blown PVR with all the other benefits of Kodi.
I got mine to replace a Sky HD box - recording stuff to a NAS drive rather than local HDD..
Granted it isnt as stable as a Humax or Sky box - but the flexibility and additional features more than makes up for it.
I love my Wetek for a lot of things, but I've pretty much given up trying to use it as a satellite box.

I had quite a few problems at the beginning - but then I was new to the world of Kodi / TVHeadend etc. But once I got over the issues, my box has been fairly stable for the past few months. I record TV shows to my NAS so that I can watch them on my tablet. I also record the more important progs to my YouView box - just in case the Wetek fails....

Good deal and great boxes, but bear in mind this one has not got the hard drive to record (I don't know if you can add one though).
The 6 years cover sounds good for £9.99 as well.

From TrustedRevies:

As if that wasn’t enough, the HB-1000S can also be turned into a PVR by connecting an external hard disk to the USB port. That means you can schedule recordings from the EPG and record an entire series at the push of a button. There’s only one Freesat tuner, so you can’t record one channel and watch another, but it’s great for recording stuff while you’re out.

Going to repost this here because this merchant's after sales support sounds terrible - not something you want to have to worry about with such a big purchase:
I would steer well clear of this company when buying such expensive items. While their TrustPilot overall score may appear favourable, the handful of reviews from customers who have actually had to test their returns process are abysmal. One particular review sited some most unusual demands placed on the buyer so I checked out their Ts&Cs to see if they actually did have the gall to put this kind of thing in writing and sure enough, they do - Have a read of this.
Most sections contain something ridiculous but the Delivery and Warranty sections are particular corkers. I'm sure a lot of these go against basic consumer rights in the UK. I say again - AVOID!
edit, I've compiled some of my favourites from the Terms and Conditions page for those too lazy to follow the link:
all appliances and TVs will be unpacked and photographed on delivery to ensure that goods have been delivered in perfect physical condition which may be used in case of any claims.
Er, what?
all goods are covered by a 12 month return to base warranty at your own cost
No thanks
If your product develops a fault after the first 7 days then please contact the customer service number for the manufacturer, to arrange engineer visit to remedy any faults.
I don't think so, contract is with seller, seller sorts this
No claims shall be accepted for damage or accessories missing on goods that have been opened and inspected on delivery and signed for in perfect condition with all accessories.
So an "inspection" done by yourself, most likely one rushed on by the driver/courier will be used against you later when you find out something is missing - nice.
You are responsible for your own shipping costs when returning faulty goods after the first 14 days from date of purchase
Wow
Anyone wishing to cancel a order and return goods after the first 14 days and within 28 days of purchase will be dealt with at our discretion.
This instils confidence
Goods that cannot be repaired or replaced after the first 28 days of purchase, shall be refunded in line with the amount of usage the customer has obtained from the product.
This is a first, I've not seen after sales care this bad anywhere before, at least not where they actually write it down for all to see.

No point taking out their extended warranty then

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.

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.

Or js9500
That's nearly £2k more.

Sorry my mistake I meant js9000 as someone already pointed out
The JS9500 is the one with the full direct LED array / local dimming and pic processing.

The 9000 just has the connect one external box which is upgradable and the Octa-core processing which may help motion but i really doubt you would notice.

Unless you get perfect calibration on the 9000 i doubt you would notice it for the extra money. The 9500 is sadly too far out of reach so i went for the 8500. Seems to be the best alternative for the money.

I would advise you to pay the extra and get the Humax. I have one of these and it is very glitchy, and the remote has to be pointed very precisely.

Actually, the one I have is slightly different, as mine has a recording function which also regularly fails too.

It has been sat in the cupboard for ages, as is was so frustrating to use.

Sorry, I can't recommend this brand from my experience.

Shame this is Freest, been looking for a Human Freeview deal for a while. Heat anyway.
http://www.humaxdirect.co.uk/refurbished.html
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.
