Hi, First post.

Was in Tesco Extra, Rutherglen, Glasgow this afternoon and spotted the best price I have seen yet for a Humax 9300T. I have just bought the 9150T from Richer Sounds for £3.00 more. Typical !
The price label was a standard yellow and red reduction one so would guess it's not store specific.

Anyone know if I can connect this up to the sky+ box to transfer programmes over?

Not the encrypted ones
I can record whats being shown on screen via the scart in the back of the tv set

Nice find and good 1st deal, voted hot

It's coming slowly and not for a full roll out until 2012 so I doubt they will be dumping stock that quickly especially as they are expecting the DTR to cost ~£300. Non-HD DTR's will be around for quite a while until the HD chipset prices come down.

It was the 9150T in stockport

Also the 9150T in Cardiff too at this price ...

9150T was £124.95 on RicherSounds website yesterday/today and option of 10% for 5yrs cover (refundable if not used). More in store, but if you quote website they will sell at website price.

Not just price but availability too - an LG spokesman at CES was blaming shortage of HD chips for their not including as standard on all forthcoming sets (though I'm sure the price delta for HD over SD chipset is a major issue too as the supply/price are totally interconnected).

Yes, not cheap. Tempted - we get Crystal Palace freeview. Probably get one for the World Cup though...

It's already available from Maplins maplin.co.uk/Mod…ule with free delivery for this weekend only.

I have one of the PVR 9300 and it is a cracking machine in my opinion. The HD for the DVB-T2 won't be available until 2012 so, if HD is a must for you, you could buy the Freesat version (as I did). There are only two HD channels on it at present but more are due to be rolled out from Spring of this year onwards. :thumbsup:

More HD channels if you pop it out of Freesat mode ;-)

Grrr now why cant my Foxsat do that, that would make it perfect IMHO. About time someone managed to hack the Linux OS on these boxes and enable FTP/network remote control

It's available now in most areas.

Like most PVRs there is no analogue input on these machines so no, you can't easily copy anything over from a Sky+ box.

Great machine, and a great price. Bought one recently from Richer Sounds for £159.99 - should have waited!

If you're waiting for the HD version with a record facility, it could be some time yet. This is a great stop gap.

Not true.. as someone has pointed out above....

Many areas wont get HD freeview until 2012 (including me). It 's mainly being rolled out in line with the Digital Switch Over (DSO) timetable as there isnt space on the transmitter Muxes. Some people on repeater transmitters will never get Freeview HD. AND everyone that wants to watch it will have to shell out for a new set top box, PVR or IDTV as none of the millions of previous exisitng freeviews boxes can decode the new HD standard.

However most of the current freeview boxes and PVRs, including this one, will still work in the future post DSO for Standard Definition so long as they have the digital tick mark so there's no need to throw out your old ones..

If you cant wait till 2012 and want HD now, go for freesat like I have .... of course you could always shell out over £400 each and every year to $ky!!

No he was talking about the Freesat version rather than Freeview because Freesat is on the same sats that host other non freesat non sky stuff you can change it out of freesat mode and watch these channels on the Foxsat box

Good point... or rather bad point in those cases! :?

That's one on the cases where freesat will be a free solution and why it was established.. and for remote areas that cant get terrestrial TV at all.

I can sort of see what you're saying there but maybe worth pointing out that on the channels common to Sky and Freesat you're watching the same signal from the same satellite irrespective of whether you're using a Freesat or Sky box.

Do all Freesat boxes allow adding of other channels manually, I thought I read somewhere they don't?

Noworries, that's a Freeview HD box rather than a Freesat HD box, it's the first box available that supports terrestrial HD transmissions.

The one i've quoted incorrectly on this thread is the 1st Freeview HD Box, which is only of use to those that have had the digital switch over...... no good to me till 2012 :x

i see so my freesatbox will be fine for the future?

So will this be better than my betamax vcr which packed up today?

Yes, you may like to consider a Freesat HD box in the future if you think there's much worth watching on the HD channels.

Upgrade to laserdisc imo.:thumbsup:

Has anyone actually got this deal? Judging by the comments it sounds like its £179 everywhere?

How long before there are enough HD channels on Freeview to make it worth getting one...............I'd say a good while yet.

I'm happy with SD on Freeview at the moment.

I get BBC HD on my Freesat and hardly watch it.
