Manufacturer's Description
FOXSAT-HDR

The FOXSAT-HDR is an award winning twin-tuner Freesat+ digital TV recorder (DTR), bursting with Freesat+ recording features to capture the incredible colour, sound and crystal clear images of HD channels from the BBC and ITV. The FOXSAT-HDR also gives you access to over 140 TV and radio channels including other services such as BBC iPlayer for the ultimate viewing experience.


Large recording capacity
Boasting a massive 500GB hard drive, the FOXSAT-HDR can store up to120 hours of HD programming or up to 300 hours of standard definition shows so you’ll never miss that crucial episode of your favourite show. The FOXSAT-HDR is perfect for those households where arguments over the remote control are guaranteed.


Viewing made easy
An eight day on-screen electronic programme guide makes it simple for anyone to scan the Freesat TV schedule and plan your viewing. By pressing the ‘guide’ button on the remote an attractive and intuitive TV schedule will appear to effortlessly scan through programmes and plan your viewing days, or even weeks in advance.


Amazing choice with twin tuners
A double booking in the TV schedule is never a good thing, but luckily, thanks to twin tuners, the Humax FOXSAT-HDR ensures a peaceful household. Because the recorder comes with two digital tuners, one programme can be watched while another is recording for viewing at a time that is convenient to you. Two Freesat channels can even be recorded at the same time while you watch another recording so you’ll never miss a thing.


Advanced recording features
The Humax FOXSAT-HDR is jam-packed with other recording features for the Freesat+ digital TV service:
Live pause and instant rewind – desperate for a cuppa but there’s no ad break to grab one? Don’t panic! It’s easy to pause any live show and go and quench your thirst. Then come back to the TV and simply carry on wherever you left off
Series recording – if you know you’re going to be out and about when you’re favourite weekly drama is on, it’s easy to set your FOXSAT-HDR to record every single episode at the touch of a button
Schedule tracking – if there’s a change to the TV schedule due to breaking news or an over-running programme, there is no need to worry about missing anything. The FOXSAT-HDR will track the recording according to broadcast signals and ensure you receive every last second
Split recording – For those long movies with a break for the news, the FOXSAT-HDR will ensure it records both halves of the film to eliminate any disappointment
Chase Play - no need to wait until the programme you are recording has finished before you can start to watch it. With chase play you can start watching from the beginning even if the programme is still being recorded


Energy saving
This eco-friendly recorder boasts less than 1watt power consumption in standby mode, ensuring energy efficiency at all times. And because software upgrades will happen automatically, as long as the box is in standby mode, there’s no excuse to waste more energy than necessary – and you can save yourself a bit of cash on the electricity bill at the same time.


Other features
BBC iPlayer features on the FOXSAT-HDR and this can be accessed via the red button service. Anything you’ve missed from the BBC can be easily viewed on the big screen. The box comes with a HDMI slot including cable for transmission of amazing high definition pictures and sound. Parental controls also mean that access codes prevent young children watching inappropriate content.

That's one opinion. I'd say the hard disk size was pretty irrelevant as neither size is enough anyway. The usb works perfectly for offloading to external decent sized disks and you then have a far more portable library. Hence a 20 quid saving for the smaller disk seems a better deal to me but I'd want to know what the condition comment meant.

That's your opinion too pot_belly. 320GB is enough for me. I haven't enough time to watch more than 320GB worth! Or rather - I've better things to do.

The post the other day was for £231 from Amazon, it has fallen in price again since then as stated in my opening sentence above, hence the new post, I see now that the other Humax post has now been amended by the OP to reflect the new lower price on Amazon.
