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.


  • Smart Recording allows you to record an entire series at the touch of a button, and even detects potential timetable clashes. Best of all, it suggest alternative recording times.


  • The HDR-1010S 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.

Q & As


Humax HDR-1010S &lt;free time&gt; Smart 1TB Wi-Fi Freesat+ HD Digital TV Recorder, White 4.7 5 19 19
Really good So much better than our previous Humax, which just died. Very easy to set up and much easier to use. . 11 July 2014
Excellent! Excellent product. Smart white finish to match my white television. Very easy to set up after connection to satellite dish using easy to follow on - screen instructions. Easy connection to wi - fi. The 1TB. hard drive stores lots of recorded programmes. Excellent picture. Would recommend! 07 June 2014
Excellent Free TV and TV Catchup The Humax1010S is all you could wish for in free TV and catch up recording. A great selection of Free to view channels plus a massive Storage capability. That combined with on line access (in this case wireless) to on demand channels such as BBC I player, ITV Player, Channels 4 and 5 on demand and other selected services. Easy to set up and a good menu system complete the picture. The remote works well but could do without the click feedback on the buttons. 05 June 2014
Rock solid alternative to SKY+HD Strongly recommended box. I would have rated 5 stars if not for a couple of really minor issues. Very good order+collection service. HW installation - straightforward. However I had to redo setup when I connected second antenna cable. I guess I should have followed the instruction to connect both RF cables at the beginning - I connected only one. Very easy setup process except one glitch: WiFi key requires entry in lower case (doc doesn't say that). Attempts to input key in upper case fails WiFi connection. Operation: very fast and easy to learn GUI. No hangups on key pressing - what a relief compared to ever slower SKY+HD. I'm very happy but just for completeness a couple of points to improve GUI if anyone from HUMAX is reading this: -too many clicks required to resume watching (just pressing play button should resume play automatically) -no option to enter the number of minutes to fast forward a recording (SKY box has it) -automatically switch to HD variant channel if available (at the moment box only suggests this) I didn't use much of internet services but I can confirm it worked OK following installation. 27 May 2014
Excellent, easy to operate recorder Having watched my viewing of Sky dwindle down to just a few programmes I decided it was time to cancel my subscription and I replaced the Sky Box with the Humax WiFi recorder. The savings on my Sky package will pay for the box in just under 7 months. I will then be saving £37 per month. The product is easy to operate - I was able to set it up without any bother (I'm a 67 year old female). It linked to my router easily and though I wasn't keen on it being white I've grown to quite like it. As for the missing Sky programmes I've been able to access the ones I watched much more cost effectively. 19 May 2014
Easy to use product We wanted to change from Sky to freesat so we have by having the humax HDR 1010S installed, we have found it easy to use and will enable us to do all the things we could do on the Sky box, this model only comes in white, but soon got used to that. 22 April 2014
quick & easy to set up with many features, by ex Sky Customer Ordered box from John Lewis online collected next day (yesterday from Waitrose). I set the box up in less than ten minutes including downloading an update & setting up wi fi without need for any instructions, very impressed. I have been a Sky customer for the past 12years, upgrading with the technology, last Sky+HD 2TB box. My first smaller memory +HD box became unreliable & the memory was insufficient so I purchased the larger capacity box when it became available at full price, that in its turn became unreliable. I contacted sky & was willing to pay something towards an updated wi fi NEW box but after two days of many phone calls I decided to purchase the Humax & terminate my Sky contract. I pointed out to sky that I could not receive my package without a reliable box. I think I have make the right decision purchasing this box & look forward to at least more than 18months of reliable use from this box. The picture is good, the sound control mentioned is not an issue & the menu system has many extra features more than the sky system. Overall so far given ease of installation, quality of picture & they many extra features I am delighted with this Freesat box & no more monthly payments. NB The only thing I would say is that the small sticker attached on the rear that continues over the edge is NOT meant to be removed. I did not realise this until I had removed as the small size of the print is not visible from the top which states do not remove (to do with warranty). I thought it was just an advertising sticker/logo hence it's removal. The sticker should be larger with the message displayed on the top of the box 16 April 2014
Humax HDR-1010S Spent a lot of time considering the purchase of this item due to the cost. Easy installation & functionality means we are extremely pleased with this product. We have now replaced the remote with a Logitech Harmony Touch. 25 March 2014
