I got a refurbished humax box from their website and have not had any trouble still comes with full warranty so if you need one get it they are amazing.
Perhaps the worst EPG I have ever used. Compared to more modern PVR's this one really looks its age. Mine now sits amongst my other A/V equipment unused and unloved. Decent picture quality but after that it's all negatives.
Such as?
Cannot believe dms05 humax is quality we have had a humax pvr for 4 years no trouble at all epg so easy and build quality very good indeed !
if you never use it and think its rubbish sell it on ebay !

Just ordered one prior to posting. Seems you are out on a limb, dms05, regarding your alleged negatives. What do you want for £89 - thunder and lightening?. After all is said and done it is a Humax brand. Say no more.

+101 from me - Humax is the best picture and the easiest box I've come across and I know nobody who has one that thinks otherwise. My Humax is ancient, old enough to have been entered into the oldest Humax in use competition that Humax held, but wouldn't swap it. Have tried a few other boxes and my antediluvian box won every time.

p.s. waiting for the New Year and expect to pick up a Humax YouView HD bargain.

Completely agree - my parents have one and I find it horrible to use compared with their HD/HDR FOX-T2 PVRs - worth paying the extra for the twin tuner Freeview HD HDR FOX-T2 model.

The menu's on the (Colleco Vision) look better then this 8bit bag of sh**, the only reason why I have you is because of the CAM slot for ESPN.
Somebody please create a nice looking PVR with a CAM slot!
My Humax is amazing. 6+ years old and still going strong. EPG isnt the prettiest but faster than most cheaper Freeview boxes even today. A bit bright in a bedroom but I covered the display with the darkening film they put on car windows and that fixed it Also installed variable resistor to slow the fan down to point where it is essentially silent.

Maybe mention in title that it is 320gb and HDMI?
Also they still seem to be releasing software updates!
Nice deal needing to upgrade my old Humax

What on earth are you going on about? Type slower and in English.
I didn't rubbish Humax, I just commented that the 9300 is now very dated and I have other equipment that outperforms it. I didn't want anyone to buy it expecting to get an up to date Humax UI with a decent EPG. The EPG takes a mammoth amount of time to populate, doesn't have folders for series recordings and the graphics remind me of a Sinclair Spectrum. As far as I'm aware the software/firmware OTA updates are just continuous rebroadcasts of the same firmware as the 9300 is still shipped with out of date firmware.
I love my humax, by far the best box out there. I paid this price for a useless bush that crashed very two minutes and was amazed when I eventually got my humax at how well it performs.

Which pvr would you recommend please?

Any humax pvr is a very good buy indeed easy to use and last for years !! Forget bush hitachi dion etc etc all crap which will freeze in a year or so i know i bought a digihome that lasted just over a year before i bought humax !
Can anyone confirm that the programme guide on this model is up to date, i have an old thomson top up tv box and the guide is limited and therefore means i cant set future recordings

Yes you can do future recordings and series recordings the menu gives you the choice to record the one episode or all.

What on earth does that have to do with anything?

I have an even older model, the 9200, and the EPG, whilst not grapically amazing, still allows me to do everything I need it to do. Record single programmes and complete series at the push of a button and I've always found the future programmes that I've wanted to record.

lol.read the question wrong

bit pointless having a pvr that you cant programme so of course it allows future recordings
@csiman - must be Christmas and too much egg-nog gumming things up! oO
Cheers OP, good deal
Got this about a year ago. Had a bit of trouble when it filled up and lost some programmes. Agree EPG was slow, but after software update it works a treat. At this price it's a bargain. Paid over £100 for mine.
Sorry about multi posting, deleted now. Not sure how it happened though.
