Been looking for a Freeview HD box for my Mum and Dad and found this deal.

Its 500GB Freeview HD PVR with twin tuner for £184.99 after cashback.

Sony are doing £50 cashback on their PVRs claim form here
dixons.pan.e-merchant.com/gra…pdf

with possible 6% cashback (TCB) so could be as low as £170.99

Previously been looking at the Humax HDR Fox T2 which is a similar price and spec but without the cashback.

Also same price from Amazon but listed with Dixons because of the 6% TCB.

I got one of these for my parents, but it was so poor I sent it back and changed it for a Humax. There were software problems with it which they may have resolved, but disappointed with the Sony brand on this one.

I think an update has solved most of the problems they had. Is the Humax easier to use?

I would prefer the Humax but don't know if its worth £50 more?

I would definitely pay £50 more for the Humax, yes (although I didn't have to as the Sony and Humax were the same price at the time I bought my parents' one). They really like the Humax and apparently there is even a button to press that automatically skips the adverts in recordings.

If the Humax is too expensive, this Panasonic one may be worth considering for £224.90 with a 5-year guarantee : richersounds.com/pro…100
