Yeah...I was a bit sad that my local Mapins only had the 500GB version...but consoled myself that I can fit a 2TB HDD sometime down the line. Been using mine a couple of days and so far so good, registered for the 2 year warranty online no problem.


It's easy to upgrade these to an AV 2Tb drive... Seagate video drives or Western Digital drives are the best


Got one of these recently and it is very slick. The only caveat is that the DNS settings seem to be locked down and I can't get the box to connect to a VPN for US Netflix...


Big thanks OP. We bought one of the very first Humax Freesat Recorder boxes when the very first came out (Dec 2008??). Ten years (and several new remotes) later it's still going strong but I'm increasingly aware that sooner or later it's going to conk out on us and I've been looking for another one, at a decent price, for ages. We were in the pub when I read your post. I couldn't find the 1TB version close to me but Maplin in Basingstoke had one 500GB version in stock. So off we trot and yes, they do indeed have one last one on the shelf for £139.99. However the sign says £139.99 for the 1TB version which was incorrect, so they give my an extra 10% off. Bargain!! They said this was because it was an 'open box' item but it looks pristine to my eyes!

Ah Nicely explained. Ta very much


A Sky Q Mk 4 LNB is encrypted to only work with a Sky Q box, whereas the old Sky+ LNB would work with both Sky+ and Freesat. You would need one of these, IF you have a Sky dish/LNB, or a Sky Q box installed in your home.


No biggy but ... wrong picture in the post .. this is a Humax HB 1100s .. heat added though .. good price


Its the HDR 1100s that has a hard drive built in but the HB 1100s you need your own externally usb 2.0 hard drive

Started with normal SKY and updated to Q, the engineer changed the dish, so presume I have the wrong LNB. Thanks for your help


Two questions - did you start with ordinary Sky or Sky Q? If you started with Sky Q you would almost certainly have the "wrong" LNB. If you started with normal Sky then changed to Q, did they change the dish and LNB? If they did then you would have the "wrong" LNB, if they did not then you would have the "right" LNB. To be honest, if you can access the dish then changing the LNB should be a doddle, the LNB should be fitted at a 15% skew but apart from that everything else should be set up. If you cannot do it yourself it should not be too expensive to get it done by an independent engineer.


It'll have likely 6 or 8 feeds, but no identifiers etc. Contact Sky saying their install borked your freesat box and you want it rectifying.


Damn, didn’t know this, didn’t ask for one, but is there any way of identifying if the engineer fitted one? No freesat box for me then, glad I read the comments before purchasing!!


Makes sense, would save money on costly TV transmitters and satellites. It's not really feesable for the BBC just yet, not everyone has the internet and open reaches speed is so low for some it wouldn't work, maybe a 4g or 5g IPTV box is the way forward.

BASKET10 worked up to last week, it doesn't now. For info only.


Should be possible to watch 4 HD like this if you can put up with no EPG and fiddling.


Because of the 4HD together with their catch-up app being withdrawn, after many a year with my Humax Freesat PVR, I've just bought instead the FREEVIEW PLAY RECORDER FVP-4000T 500GB - MOCHA (REFURBISHED).


Really happy with my purchase. I love the "this channel is available in HD, press OK to watch" which was a bug bare of mine on Virgin and Sky. Picture quality is much better than my old Sky HD+ box, I'm impressed.


This code works on all refurb products currently up, I just checked. 🔥

Not quite. They give you Freeview HD in a much better user interface than a Now TV box. Your TV guide will go forwards and back 7 days each way for you to watch catch up on most channels and shows. In terms of apps, it has things like Now TV for movies on demand, and Netflix built in too. Also, if you happen to have BT, Plusnet, TalkTalk or KC broadband, you'll be able to pick up their own extra channels and services (as per your package, or extra charges you agree to. For example TalkTalk offer the Sky TV channels through YouView for a few pounds extra per month, and that option is generally a better experience than Now TV passes, should you opt to take them)


What do these do? Are they same as a NowTv box?


You could always still use this with a couple of powerline adapters? This is how I made them work in other rooms usually with better broadband performance than I would get over WiFi too! Other than the Now TV Smart box which isn't really anywhere near as good you don't get any other options that would do the job other than subscription based offerings like a Sky Q Mini box, or a Virgin Tivo V6 Box


UI for Now TV isn't as good. And they really try to push you into using their services. Last time I looked at the smart box it didn't even have a proper TV Guide for Freeview!


Second hand freeview box where you can pay to subscribe to BT sport, doe shave apps but needs a hard-wire internet connection. The nowTV smart box seems better value for the same second hand price

HUMAX have now updated the software on the FVP-4000T so that it now runs the same software as the FVP-5000T. So this is an even better deal now


I have the FVP-5000T. It's quite good but the software is quite buggy, for example:- Sometimes when I press pause and then unpause it subtitles are then displayed even though they are set to off and the only way to get rid of them them is to turn the subtitles on and then off again. It's quite an annoying 'feature'.


I've managed to get Standard Definition freeview recordings transferred via USB to play on my PC


There are several YouTube videos showing how it is done but not tried it myself. Looks a bit of a faff tbh.


Do any of these Humax units allow you to transfer HD recordings onto another storage device and watch them on say a computer? Or are they still locked to being played on the very same Humax unit?

The reason bought the 4000t


These are OK, but the three-tuner ones are more versatile and well worth the extra.

dreamt12 B graded 500gb version here. I ordered a b grade 4000t last week, came well packed but outer box was battered. Had a generic fly lead and hdmi but the humax was in great nick. Wiped it over and it looked almost brand new. 2 year warranty at cex too. Delivered free in 2 days. There an a grade 500gb 4000t for £105 on their site too. Just depends if you want the 1tb or not or new. I wasn't that fussed and am happy with my box for £85


Or if 500Gb enough £149.... No in Currys its £209.99, thats the 500GB one.

... At the time I couldn't see anything on the market that was better for my situation which was wanting as much free UK TV as possible in my house which has crappy TV signal but an existing Sky dish.


I have two of these. They're OK. I have got used to them and I have saved a fortune since not having Sky. The worst thing is the amount of time they take to come on. I feel that Humax are still investing in them as there have been a few updates in the year I have had them.


your most likely right hence the focus on new freeview play boxes instead.


Correct me if I'm wrong but isn't Humax's lack of development of Freesat recorders down to the gradual demise of the satellite TV market generally. I imagine that most Freesat boxes will have been bought to make use of redundant Sky dishes, but now with Sky moving over to streamed TV for the future the demand for Sat TV boxes will inevitably disappear.


True they are slow compared to a lot these days, and I would happily pay for a proper (fast) refresh of my HDR-1000S refurb. But it is still more than useable and doesn't leave me hating it with everyday use.

You are right; DTR-2100s appear to be plentiful (not sure why there are so many) and so are a good choice, provided your reception is good enough (it may just be me that has had reception problems with them.)

No longer available.


Those talking about having switched from foxsat hd, have they sorted media player / networking ability, because the raydon firmware turned it into a much better piece of kit like watching around the house. Doesnt look better - looks like a cheap scanner !


It's 2017, is there now asingle cable solution between the recorder box and satellite dish?


Maybe a good price, but the delivery is from the 18th August its July now!!!


There seems little point in this box then? HD fails = all recordings are lost


Good deal I replaced my Humax Foxsat HDR with this. Nice interface, responsive, only downside is you can no longer export the recording even if they are not HD :-(

That depends on your perspective. I like that as we have 2 TVs of the same brand, and that stops the problem we used to have with my partner suddenly deafening me with the XBox/PC. And the remote itself acts like an all-4-one style remote, so you could use it for the TV as well.

​change the eco setting or standby mode...on my box slightly different model it then starts up much quicker..


I have an HDR 1000S, but stopped using it when a common problem of the internal HDD not being recognised surfaced. I immediately went out and bought a Zgemma H2S (and added Wooshbuild with a Sky Q-lookalike skin) which I much prefer, though it is a bit technical to set up (Wooshbuild makes it a lot easier). Love that the Zgemma has an excellent Web interface and that you can indeed copy recorded HD programmes off it (a terrible, terrible restriction of all Freeview/Freesat recorders). Also relieved that it has no internal hard drive - just slap a decent capacity external USB stick/drive on it and away you go - if that goes wrong, just swap in a fresh stick/drive.

Back in stock and ordered this morning. Leaving sky in a couple of weeks!


​You can get the BT branded version of the Humax DTR-T2100 for amazing prices on eBay, news ones usually sell for under £100 and pre-owned ones for around £50-60. The common misconception is, even though it is branded BT, you don't need to be a BT Internet user. You just won't be able to access the BT TV services, but the recording function and on-demand players all work a dream. Here for example is a new on eBay for £75...

it's two separate modes and you can't record in non-freesat mode either. to be honest, it's enough of a faff to not bother with.
