No idea, just using the voucher posted here.

hotukdeals.com/ite…s-/

Reading this, there has been mixed results using the vouchers.

works fine for me, but I think a lot of these vouchers don't work via a direct link
SO
go to google.co.uk

search for:
Humax LU32TDR1
then click the link, add the item to your basket and go to checkout and enter: EM4744 in the required part, ie (Got a Voucher you'd like to use? Click here Please note: if you have a username you will no longer need to enter it.)


should come to £311.99 which is a cracking deal for a TV & twin tuner PVR. Humax make great Sat & Freeview/PVR gear so no reason to think the TV would not be anything less.

Remember quidco as well ...:-D

Alas not what I am looking for but great deal all the same.:thumbsup:

This is all i get ?

Are you lot getting me at it or what :x I'm now getting the this code is invalid done exactly what you said :thinking:

Great deal if you can get the voucher to work.....

I went via Quidco and the voucher EM4744 works.

I’m thinking of this for my parents but I’m not sure how good the PVR is. Any idea if the PVR can record to disk whilst you simultaneously watch a recorded program from disk?

PVR`s don`t record to disc but you can connect to computer and download to hard drive then disc

Right i have it now :thumbsup: you need to click the link on google thats says Use voucher ID 'EM4744' & username 'edsave' for this price. Ends today.

Seems a bit silly that's its only letting you enter it this way now how do i get this to work with quidco :thinking:

Working for Waterloo now, if only we can get you fixed too........

Maybe a cookie thing or something going on?

Here is a review I found on t'internet: -

This Humax HD-ready, 32-inch widescreen LCD TV can store about 70 hours of recorded TV and pause live TV – but can't record two channels at once and neither sound or picture quality are much to write home about.

It features an analogue tuner plus twin digital (Freeview) tuners in the form of an integrated PVR (personal video recorder) with 160GB hard drive.

Standard picture quality is a little wanting. Our expert viewing panel spotted soft and smeary colours, and a general lack of detail, especially when watching dark sequences. The high definition picture is naturally better but lacking some depth and a little grainier than we'd expect.

The sound isn't great either – our listeners were not impressed at all, despite some good dynamics and thumpy bass. Higher frequencies are often distorted at their peak, the sound is rather thin in places and speech can be uneven. To top it all there's a slight fan noise (from the PVR).

This TV has 2 Scart sockets, both of which carry RGB. One HDMI socket is also located at the rear of the set, but facing down, so it's a little awkward to get to. Sockets for portable devices are positioned at the side of the TV, but recessed and behind a flap. There's also a headphone output jack, which mutes the TV speakers.

The Humax has a digital audio output socket, so can be connected to a home cinema system, but unusually lacks dedicated stereo audio output sockets for connection to a hi-fi system.

The digital tuner has a 7-day EPG but only displays information for a single channel at a time. Irritatingly, you have to exit the EPG to check what's on another channel.

The remote control is larger than average, with a very good angle of use. It's also uncluttered and sensibly laid out. However, the text and PVR keys are under a flap with poorly contrasted dual labelling.

A coordinating rotating pedestal stand is supplied and the Humax can be wall mounted if a suitable bracket is purchased.

Pros: Integrated twin tuner PVR

Cons: Picture and sound not great, can't record two channels at once, irritating EPG
