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 4.1 out of 5 by 7 reviewers.
Rated 2 out of 5 by Poor replacement for the 9300T This Humax is a retrograde step. The 9300T had picture in picture, A front display of either the current time, or the playing time or the channel you are watching. You can't edit a recording ( to take out the adverts). The TV won't even receive a signal unless the 2000T is switched on, or recording. I'm selling mine as I've got a 9300T off ebay. 18 April 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Easy to set up and use Simple to use easy interface smaller unit than previous models so fits better into units only downside is no channel display on unit fascia but that would make it bigger anyway. 29 March 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Humax HDR2000T 500GB Brilliant Recorder, its my first experience with a HDR storing films and favorite Programs. Picture quality is A1 as is sound quality. Setting Up I used the HDMI2 port and lead supplied. You will need a short coaxial Arial lead to connect the Humax OUT to TV IN. (THIS is NOT Supplied) Be Patient When you first switch on. Switch on the TV and select a station next the Humax WAIT 30 SECONDS as it takes around this amount of time to start up and show a picture on the TV. I have a Panasonic TV and found that whilst recording two programs at the same time I lost certain TV channels to watch. A warning would pop up saying cannot change channel while recording. To over come this go to the HDMI Chanel you chose to connect with the Humax in my case HDMI2 and change to TV this will now let you choose any program to watch whilst its recording Two Programs in the same time frame. The Remote is very good as is the on screen menus. Highly Recommended. 27 March 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Brilliant! Humax really have cornered the market in tippermost toppermost PVRs. This is the second I've had ( and I only got rid of the first because I couldn't link it to the new TV as it wasn't HD). So easy to set up, intiuative (you don't need to read the manual), it's quick, the picture quality is great, no pixelating, it has easy to read and elegant looking menus. It also prioritises HD channels, so no scrolling through the menus to get to channel 101 etc. It was up and running within minutes. I now access BBc iPlayer through the Humax rather than the Smart TV as it's so much quicker and more responsive. I had bought another make of Freeview+ HD box just before Xmas to fit the new telly and it was so rubbish compared to the previous Humax I've replaced it with this model in less than 2 months. Going back to a Humax was like coming home......all Freeview boxes should be made this way! 18 January 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Works ok but confusing to use Works fine - does what it says it will do. Disagree with the other review ? this Humax gets the same signal strength and signal quality as my previous Humax 9150. However, the human interface is confusing. Example 1): The front LED indicator is blue for ?off? and red for ?on?. But it?s also red for ?recording?. So, when you look at the front panel you don?t know if you?ve left it ?on? or it is recording something. Example 2): When you ask it to record a series of programmes it helpfully creates an on-screen folder to put the series in. But not every programme goes into the folder... The picture quality is great and the ?advert skip? button on the remote control is wonderful! This is my third Humax HDR2000. No, I don?t collect them, but the first two were faulty out of the box. I really looked hard to find an alternate brand, but all the rest seem to get very mixed reviews. But then this review is pretty mixed too. 30 December 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent product! Far superior to our previous video recorder which cost us triple the amount of this machine and was much more complicated to use and for no apparent reason suddenly stopped recording. This is a very compact unit, the instruction book is so simple to follow, the handset is very easy to use and being able to record two programmes at once is an added bonus. Would recommend this machine for its excellent performance and simplicity of operation. 29 December 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Interface and tuner quality issues but otherwise great. I bought one and took it home only to find that, unlike my previous Humax PVR-9300T SD recorder, this box did not cope with the marginal signal levels that my roof aerial supplies, causing break up on some channels from time to time. I took it back and it was swapped for an identical box which also reports low signal levels when I use the Signal Detection option in the menu but displays all channels on every multiplex without hesitation. Simple answer... cheap dual tuners. (I used to work for ITV Digital as a senior technical advisor, so I know) The user interface looks good but is no where as simple and intuitive as the PVR-9300T. A great piece of kit if you get a good one and just want to watch Freeview +HD. I think components are cheap and the user interface is poor compared to previous Humax recorders. I am going to buy the Humax "dongle" and see what benefits I reap. 09 November 2013
