Product information

The Humax HDR-1000S recorder will unlock a whole new world of online and satellite entertainment. Enjoy over 150 channels, many in stunning HD, as well as on-demand services like BBC iPlayer, Demand 5 and ITV Player. The HDR-1000S also has a clever roll back TV guide, so tracking down those pesky missed programmes is as easy as checking what’s on next. It’ll also pause and rewind live TV, and even record two channels at the same time - no more timetable clashes!



  • Combining freesat HD, BBC iPlayer, 4oD, Demand 5 and ITV Player the Humax HDR-1000S delivers over 150 channels of viewing goodness. Complete with an easy-to-use electronic programme guide, even setting reminders and browsing for missed programmes is a breeze.

  • The huge built-in 500GB hard drive allows you to record 125 hours of HD and 300 hours of SD content. Need to run to the kitchen? Just pause live TV, come back and carry on from where you left off. You can even rewind and relive cracking goals or dramatic moments with the push of a button.

  • Twin tuners make it possible to record two channels at the same time, or watch one while recording another. The roll back electronic programme guide even makes it easy to pull up those programmes that you forgot to record.

  • Built-in upscaling will bring your favourite standard definition channels up to date with near-HD quality.

  • The HDR-1000S has enough connectivity to join just about any AV setup. The HDMI port makes it a snap to connect to compatible sets and enjoy HD viewing, while the SCART output has older AV equipment covered. There are also two USB ports for media sharing and expansion.

  • Easy to set up. Just hook the DTR-T1000 up to your TV aerial and broadband connection via ethernet and go. There’s even an HDMI cable included so you’re ready to go straight out of the box.

Please note: To enjoy freesat broadcasts you will need a dish and cabling installed. freesat does not require a contract or a subscription – just a one-off payment for your dish and installation.

A new world of watching An excellent product, worth the expense. Works well. 11 March 2014
Good Box Having brought this to bring back to France I have not fully got it working as you need two sat feeds and we have only one,but from what I have seen this is a good product and once connected correctly will be good. 11 February 2014
Humax HDR-1000S Smart 500GB Freesat+ HD Digital TV Recorder This Humax freesat HD recorder is easy to set up and provides an excellent quality picture. The ethernet port is a plus feature as a wired internet connection is often better. The hard disc, 500gb, is large enough for most people. I can recommend this model. 21 January 2014
Happy with present. We bought this as a present for our son, he is a bit of a tech geek. He was extremely happy with all aspects regarding it's performance and would recommend it. 18 January 2014
Sky Beware-Real competion at last I am very satisfied with this product having spent over 10 years paying Sky an ever increasing subscription for many channels I never watch. The setup I found to be very easy and when adding my local post code during the setup I was delighted to find I at last get our local BBC1 West channel.I was fed up with the Midlands channel(which is not local) on my Freeview tv. Although the remote control is not so easy to operate as Sky,I am getting used to it. 10 January 2014
Great product Easy to set up, took minutes. Recordings are simple and picture quality is great. The box looks a bit tinny maybe and it takes time to connect but these are minor complaints. Great delivery service as usual from John Lewis. 19 December 2013
