This is a brilliant price for the newly released Humax, i've read about it on these forums but nobody has put it as a deal, which I think it thoroughly deserves!!! I have the older PVR 9200T since it first came out and it has been abolutely brilliant, now availiable in black, silver coming out soon(PVR9200TS)Postage is dependant on weight and it shouldn't weigh more than 5KG which costs £7, or it can be collected from any Martin Dawes ( NorthWest or Midlands)

I do like the spec. price is not so hot.
But I thought Top UP TV was dead. no new contracts.

I have the old 9200t what are the improvements in the new model?

The change seems to be this has the FREEVIEW PLAYBACK logo associated with it - and new suffix with: B for Black and S for Silver.

One of the new features is Freeview "PDC" style recordings - ie instead of just recording the timeslot, it can record the event as long as the broadcaster is sending the right info (eg when programmes are delayed by a live event running late) or a couple of minutes late/early as a spoiler versus other broadcasters schedules. There's stories that as the difference is just software the older models can/may get a software update in due course.

Humax UK don't have anything on their website (they seem to live a few months in the past), but their online store has the three models listed at
humaxdirect.co.uk/pro…pvr

Think Top up Tv has been replaced by Top Up TV Anytime I am unsure whether you can use the old card reader. Price is not anything great but is the lowest price I can find.
The specification looks good. We use pdc function on a video and it works well.
This a more reallistic purchase than the Grundig at GUS.

Top up tv is being phased out and the new version is different

This is a really good machine, and the price is excellent, I paid £220 for my Hummy when it first came out and have never looked back.

If this was advertised at £100 but was a poor performer, the temp of it would be in the +ive, some people don't realise a bargain can cost more than a few quid:x

Ive read a few places that the PVR 9200T is 'the' best, is there a price difference between the old one and this new one?

Really tempted with this.

How is this possible with only two tuners? Surely you would have to either watch a previously recorded program, or watch one of the channels being recorded?

Freeview channels are grouped together as Multiplexes (MUX) there may be half a dozen or so channels on each MUX and each MUX is then broadcast over the same frequency to your Digibox. As long as the 3rd channel you want to watch is on the same MUX as one of the channels you are recording, then you can watch it. Clever eh!
