Q & As

Humax HDR-2000T Smart 500GB Freeview+ HD Digital TV Recorder 3.8 5 18 18
Used in a caravan At home we always watch TV through a PVR. We bought this PVR because it will run on 12 volts from a caravan supply. Power consumption is very low and when reliant on your leisure battery, consumption is important. It gives us the freedom to watch and record programmes in the any location. 23 August 2014
Free view recordings with ease Very easy to set up, easy to record and watch tv. Internet connection not worth bothering about as there are only one or two things you can access 12 August 2014
Humax HDR-2000T This machine appears to do what it says on the tin unlike the samsung BDF8500 which we had to return. 29 July 2014
Fine but one big drawback for me This product gets so much right. I like the programme guide and the menu is simple. It is also easy to record. But I like to listen to the radio through the TV, particularly when I'm working at home. On my old system, the radio page used to show which song was playing. But this Humax insists on going to a really annoying jumping-clock screensaver which is distracting and doesn't let me see the screen. Apparently, there's no way to switch it off. 16 July 2014
Good Much better than the previous model (PVR9300) Easy to use. Red light does not always change to blue when switched on other than that VERY GOOD 09 July 2014
Fairly satisfied We have had this Humax for a month now and it seems OK. It replaced an old Digifusion box whose hard drive gave up the ghost. The plus points of this new box are: Series recording. Energy saving once in standby as the hard drive powers down (unless recording in standby). Very quiet operation when on. Facility to check hard drive for errors. The negative points: Takes at least 20 seconds to come out of standby, although it has saved energy as the hard drive was off, see above point about this. The menu fonts are very dim and small which is a pain. Has not recorded some programmes for unknown reason. It also has a very backward issue inasmuch it cannot record the channel it is tuned to in the background (time shift recording) whilst a recording is being played. We thought we hadn't set a setting but in the troubleshooting section it states that the machine cannot do this. A very backward step seeing the old box could do this. I don't think we would have bought this set if we had known this, we were going for the Panasonic but that machine does not have a SCART socket which we must have. We have not tried the Internet part of the set. Due to this we cannot give this set full marks. 01 June 2014
Happy Bunny I love this. It's very easy to use - even a techno-phobe like me can operate it. I hardly ever watch anything in real time now. 13 May 2014
Not bad but not great Being used to Virgin Media's Tivo, this is a big step down, But I am getting used to it. The main negative point is that where you have a menu within a menu, it is near impossible to see the options. The search feature is useful, and I would have returned it without this feature. I do like that the optical out does output in dolby surround. 14 March 2014
