With many enhancements over previous models, the Humax HDR-2000T 500GB is set to advance Freeview+ HD still further.

YOUR FAVOURITE CHANNELS, IN GLORIOUS HD


With free access to High Definition channels, the Humax HDR2000T is the perfect partner for your HD TV. In addition to free HD channels from the BBC, ITV and Channel 4, the Humax will still receive the usual standard Freeview TV and radio services, meaning you don't miss out on your existing channels: High Definition TV through your standard aerial for free!

WATCH YOUR FAVOURITE TV WHEN YOU WANT, WITH A BUILT-IN PVR

Unlike other Freeview HD set-top boxes, the HDR2000T doesn't leave it at that. Also included is a built-in 500GB hard drive. This personal video recorder will let you record up to 300 hours of standard TV or 125 hours of HD TV. It also lets you buffer the program material for up to 2 hours - perfect for watching a program from the beginning whilst it's still recording. Furthermore, twin tuners give you the flexibility to watch a different channel to the one you're recording or record two channels at the same time! As you'd expect, there's an easy to use 8-day onscreen guide and interactive TV service via MHEG.

THE LATEST CONNECTIVITY

Boasting the latest version HDMI connection, the HDR-2000T is not just compatible with today's HD TV but also equipped for the future. If you're still waiting for an HD TV, then you can use the standard SCART socket in the meantime. Should you want to plug the HDR-2000T through your hi-fi or home cinema then it will happily oblige with both RCA phono and optical digital outputs. Added to this you'll find a USB socket. This allows you to plug in external hard drives or memory sticks and playback your saved media. With the Ethernet socket you can also plug the HDR-2000T into your home network and take advantage of network updates and web apps.

FRESH NEW STYLE

This new style of Humax set-top box ushers in a host of improvements. Amongst these are improved connectivity, enhanced memory, reduced power consumption and smart new looks within a smaller casing. Smaller than ever, the HDR-2000T fits neatly where others won't go. The two colour LED neatly distinguishes between recording (red) and standard operation (blue). The sleek silver and black finish complements pretty much any TV, too.

Smart new looks and an enhanced performance, the Humax HDR-2000T/500GB is more impressive than ever.

Rated 4.2 out of 5áby 28 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5áby Does the job required Set up by Richer Sounds engineer so easy as ....... 06 April 2015
Rated 4 out of 5áby An excellent device. It does everything claimed in the description, here and more. The HDR2000T is unobtrusive, quiet (no discernible fan noise) and neat. It gives excellent picture quality. There is a multitude of features available via broadband, including BBC iPlayer but not the other Catch Up players, however that may change because applications can be downloaded once they become available. There are two snags, one is the limited status indication; there is no way of telling whether the unit is in the Standby or Recording mode. Another gripe is the inability to use the TV, without the Humax switched on. The consequence of this is that you have to have the unit On all the time the TV is On, although you may not need the features it provides. An incidental point: the USB wifi adapter did not work for me; the connection was much too slow but a cable connection to the router works satisfactorily. 30 March 2015
Rated 5 out of 5áby cheaper than BT Vision Box I am glad brought the Humax HDR2000T because The BT Vision I had to pay for HD ú12 per month so had to change new Humax freeview does have HD does not charge a penny every month also recording lots easier than BT Vision Box 26 March 2015
Rated 5 out of 5áby Humax hdr2000t I love this recorder. Bought as replacement for Tvonics recorder which I thought was great until it packed up. Easy to use. Easy to setup. Improves both picture and sound through tv. I can even beam pictures from my phone to look at on screen. Brilliant. No complaints. 25 March 2015
Rated 4 out of 5áby Great Freeview PVR Easy to set up, watch, record & play back. Works well - no problems so far! 24 March 2015
Rated 4 out of 5áby Upgrade from PVR Previous PVR started to go wrong so decided to upgrade. Initial teething problems in that could not watch normal TV unless HD was switched on. Contacted Humax who said it was a feature of HDR2000T, annoying. However, software was going to be downloaded to cure this. Waited 5 weeks no download so contacted Humax again who said it had not been done but I could download the update on the net via flashdrive. Did this and now can watch TV but Humax still interferes with tv symptoms occasional blank screen or pixallated picture for 10/15 seconds, annoying. Will have to contact Humax again about this. 24 March 2015
Rated 4 out of 5áby No Complaints Unfortunately I had to return a TV Onics Freeview Recorder but was able as part of guarantee to exchange the item for this Humax version. Wow, I`m impressed an excellent recorder which is doing its job nicely. As I`ve only been using the box for a couple of weeks its a bit too soon to give a long term review however I`m pleased with its features and screen layout, a very easy to use recorder. 17 March 2015
Rated 4 out of 5áby exactly what i needed While technically not a saorview recorder it is sufficient to give me an epg and an ability to record. very easy to set up the only disadvantage is that you cannot reorder the channel list but that is only a minor irk 23 January 2015
