A purchase regrettedI experienced the same problem as BeeGeeRH. The product would not switch on. I had to switch off the power supply and reboot. You provided a replacement, but this manifested the same fault. Eventually I read on the web that the solution was to change the setting 'Network Service' to off. This seems to have worked. Fingers crossed. But the whole experience over three months was dispiriting. I have yet to make a wifi internet connection, and can hardly focus on the finer points.

Great features...who needs Sky!This 1 trebyte recodable box is mega easy to set up and use. I cancelled Sky in the summer due to rising costs, but missed the ability to live pause and record series.
This box for a one off cost is an excellent alternative as, most of my viewing is on freeview channels anyway.
I would genuinely recommend to anyone in a similar position.
Only negative if I'm being picky is that the remote control is quite big. The upside is it's easy to navigate.

Some improvements could be madeBefore reviewing the product I would just like to,say how very helpful the young man (Mak) who served me was, he dealt with a not very tech savvy 70+ year old with good humour and he is a credit to his profession.
Some features could be improved, It would be helpful for the partially sighted if , on the programme guide, the channel number on the left could be abigger, also I would prefer the recorded list to be a written list instead of a picture, it would be easier to navigate multiple recordings. There does not seem to be sufficient clearance at the base for adequate ventilation, just an extra 1/2 centimetre would give more airflow,.
It will take me a few more days to get used to the techy bits but so far so good.

Updated version of the original Humax 9051TThis latest version has a lot more to offer. Catch up TV, Freeview HD, a terabyte of memory to hold a huge amount of recordings, IPlayer, ITV player,, All 4 etc. My biggest bug bear is that setting up recordings were a lot less complicated. With the old system you could scroll through the day setting recordings as you went along. You could continue to scroll through days picking out programmes throughout the week. With the new Humax once you have set up your programme and you are viewing a future date you do not go back to that date to continue, the screen jumps back to the current date, therefore you are scrolling through to get to the date you were last working on. You are continuingly going back and forth which slows things down immensely

Hummax freeview box 1T CappuccinoVery easy to install and use. Clear manual information. Set is very stylish and unobtrusive. Buttons on remote large and clear (some remotes these days need a magnifying glass to read the lettering above each of the tool buttons).
