"We're beginning to sound like a broken record, but this is another quality set-top-box from Humax..." 'What Hi-Fi? magazine'. 5-star review. Tested at £150.

Your favourite TV 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, so you don't miss out on your existing channels. Quite simply it's High Definition TV through your standard aerial for free!

Built-in PVR for recording
Also included is a built-in 500GB hard drive. This will record up to 300 hours of standard TV or 125 hours of HD TV, and lets you buffer for up to two hours - perfect for watching a programme from the beginning while it's still recording. The same facility also lets you pause live TV, while twin tuners let you 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 on-screen guide.

Latest connectivity
Boasting the latest version HDMI connection, the HDR-2000T is equipped for the future. If you're still waiting for an HD TV you can use its SCART socket, and should you want to plug the HDR-2000T through your hi-fi or home cinema it's got both RCA phono and optical digital outputs. A USB socket allows you to plug in external hard drives or memory sticks for playback of saved media. The Ethernet socket lets you plug the HDR-2000T into your home network and take advantage of network updates and web apps.

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

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

Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 92 reviewers.
Rated 3 out of 5 by An average sort of DTR This DTR is large compared to other ones nowadays which for me counts against it as I like things as small,neat and unobtrusive as possible.It was fairly easy to set up and remote control also fairly simple to get the hang of. Having had 4 DTRs in the past 2 years all of which went wrong the minute they were out of guarantee period I went for this one purely as it came with 6 year warranty and was a very reasonable price. I went on to buy the dongle so that I could use the Humax TV portal but it was very clumsy to use (when I could get wifi signal which was a bit hit or miss!) All you gain that is at all worthwhile is BBC iplayer and YouTube. However the YouTube is next to useless as the search keyboard is agonisingly slow, fiddly and clumsy to use so I just gave up on Humax TV. I may get an Amazon firestick or a ChromeCast instead. This DTR is ok though pretty basic and seems old fashioned by today's standard but it's pretty cheap and if you get a long warranty a reasonable buy. 13 August 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Value for money would recommend this product . Good insurance cover for little money. 05 August 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great all rounder Exactly what I required. An HD recorder. It has all the required Freeview channels. And some great little quirky features. 18 July 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very easy to use and great quality Set up the pvr in minutes, very easy to understand instructions. 04 July 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by This product is easy to operate. I swopped the 4000T for this 2000T because I found the former so different from my old FOXT2. The 2000T is probably as close as I can get to the FOXT2 with similar screen layouts. The only disadvantage I have noticed is the 2000T is not fitted to work with Wi-Fi however I can still watch Catch -Up with the Smart Hub on my Samsung TV. Finally I cannot praise the Richer Sounds Edinburgh staff enough, especially the Manager Garry who has given super service and home support in the swop over period. I can recommend Richer Sounds for any future prospective buyers. 02 July 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Beats the competition again I have only given this four stars due to I am comparing this directly with the Humax Feesat box I purchased a year ago, which frankly is nothing short of stunning ! The HUMAX HDR2000T 500GB is without doubt good but I was somewhat concerned about some of the previous customer reviews re reliability so purchased the 6 yr after care, which I was informed after that Humax was supporting it directly as opposed to Richer Sounds, (there's a story there somewhere). Concerns about reported noise problems, as yet, have not been evident. EPG & recording not as intuitive as the Freesat box, though I am still learning all the features of this one. The red light used for both indication of standby and recording can be confusing. 02 July 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by The humax is amazingly easy to function I have 2 now they are brilliant and I wouldn't go anywhere else to get it than richer sounds. 12 June 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by Poor performance with Panasonic TV I am absolutely sure that this unit is another brilliant box from Humax. If you have a Panasonic TV (Plasma 42") however, beware. The aspect ratio is not correctly adjusted to give full screen on transmissions in 4:3. You have to manually adjust the settings on the Humax box to tell it you have a 4:3 TV before it behaves correctly, then switch it back for 16:9 programmes. Having spent a while on the phone to Humax support they have come to the conclusion that "It is what it is", "There is no work around". Very unhelpful having just bought another one of their products. By the way, just to put this into context, I have been a happy Humax user for six years or so. Previous unit was a DuoVisio 9200T which worked fine with the TV on aspect ratios. Needed something with HD as an update. New Humax units do not tick all my boxes... This is not a reflection on Richer Sounds, they have been brilliant and found me an alternative which works. 11 June 2016
