Good But Has Its Niggles
After having sky+ like many others i was looking for a recordable system that i could use with my Samsung LCD which doesn`t have freeview due to it being one of the earlyer LCD`s on the market .
After reading many reviews which include freesat PVR and freeview PVR`s i decided to give the humax a go
Its a prettey simple saterlite and is fairly easy to use , It has a very good SD picture and the HD channels are also very good . There are only currently 3 HD channels but there are more on the way . The Humax is future proof as you will be able to add internet service to it in the near future . The niggles i have with it are that you lose a few channels that you get with freeview but gain acouple of others but there nothing to shout about . The remote is shocking and realy badly layed out and could do with a complete overhaul and the responce between the remote and satalite is slow so you can wait and extra couple of seconds after typing the numbers in before it apears on the tv by which time you have pressed other numbers and it gets alittle annoying at times . Apart from this its all good and you have the option if your a recording junkie to add an external HDD and it comes with twin tuners which some PVR`s fail to have . I hope in the future Humax replaces the controller and then i would say its even nearer to being perfect
