First of all i thought this is the cheapest i've ever seen this Humax PVR.

But.......isn't this just a Freeview HD box, with a seperate hard drive that you have to plug in as well ?
In which case i cant see how they can call it a PVR..... Only a single tuner as well.

Actually not a good deal. You can buy the components for £125 all in including delivery from Amazon.

Yes, it uses a external USB 500GB drive (provided as part of the deal) as stated in my post. If you want this model with an integrated 500GB you pay between £276 and £350 according to Google Shopping (google.co.uk/pro…log?q=humax+500gb+hd&hl=en&cid=3582734805896608097&os=sellers#)

If you can see a better deal than mine for the money, then please post it.

This is NOT a pvr, so thee description is a bit misleading. Plus as already mentioned its a single tuner and w/o hdd can be had for 95£ (new) on the same auction site. So the remaining 50£ for a no brand HDD, doesnt make it a hot deal for me.

I dont like these second hand car dealer style sellimg tactics, so Cold for me....

I think a good deal. My Humax FoxSat with built in hard drive is one of the best ever electrical purchases I've made. I'd live with using a USB device for £100 less as long as the interface was the same.

Dodgy listing. Read it carefully. It's not for a Humax PVR.

The HD-FOXT2 isn't a PVR, it's just a receiver.

And you can buy it, and a 500GB hard drive for a lot less than £145

And while you're at it have at look at the negative feedback for faulty goods & poor service.

Definitely cold.

the humax hd fox can be had at tescos for £90 leaving you £55 for the hd?
not good deal

The point i was making, is that its NOT a PVR. Its just a Freeview HD reciever with a seperate hard drive.

There is no need to be rude. I was looking for a HD Freeview recorder and saw this, and thought it was an excellent package and bought it. I thought someone else might like it too, which is why I posted here, although I am starting to wonder why I bothered. Its no skin off my nose whether or not HD Direct make a sale or not.

Also, the fact that you refer to Buffalo as a 'no brand' suggests you don't know much about PC hardware as they are the number one PC peripheral manufacturer in a little third world backwater known as Japan.

The PVR is a great spot so well done, but I'd avoid the Seagate. I had the 320GB model and the USB connector gave up the ghost after 4 months.

yes please where is the code?

This is cold as its just a HD freeview box, needs a beta firmware upgrade to get it to record and add your own HDD or memory stick!

Tesco sell it for £89.99 delivered to store for pickup and you get 28 days to try it and if it doesn't suit you can take it back for a full refund, bet your ebay merchant wouldn't be as forgiving if something didn't work out with the box..

Feeble, dont take it pesronal as i never doubted your good intention to share and help others. I was just commenting on the eBay listing, which shouldnt call it PVR for all the obvious reasons. Also i think more than internal or external HDD, its the single tuner (correct me if wrong) thats putting me off.

you are an absolute star! i was gonna purchase this for £90 for fathers day!
thansk!

the seller must be laughing all way to bank as 22 muppets have bought it, god some ppl,pmsl
veery dodgy description, if not misleading

Thanks everyone, nearly bought it myself until i read the comments, you are all stars

Not quite comparable to proper PVR. For a start only has one tuner, and even the ability to watch another while a recording is in progress is limited to watching a channel on the same multiplex. I personally find that there are only too often occasions when there is nothing of particular interest the whole evening, and then suddenly, at say nine o'clock, there are several programmes you really want to watch, (and then afterwards probably nothing of interest)! The ability to record at least two channels at a time should normally mean you can cope with two recording, and watching one other simultaneously.

You say you've bought this package. I hope your comments about the Buffalo hard drive mean that you've already got it, because according to the listing you'll get either the Buffalo or the Seagate.

Good comments hear, apologies, cold vote from me!

Humax is the leader in PVR's by a mile (Which servey best buy 4 top are all Humax http://www.which.co.uk/technology/tv-and-dvd/reviews/pvrs/best-buy/table/)
and from personal experience the others don't come close.
