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 5 by 19 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great picture. Easy to set up and use Bought to replace previous Humax which was freezing on playback. Set up within 5 mins and impressed by picture quality. Easy to use and silent too (no fan noise). 20 September 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Very good value for money I read many reviews before buying this model and am very pleased with its features and functions. Easy to set up and use (once you thoroughly read the manual and pick up tips from other peoples reviews). Didn't have enough power sockets to use a Powerlink adaptor for the Humax Portal - to access BBC Iplayer /Youtube etc So I ordered the Wi-Fi dongle from John Lewis (and picked up in store next day).Worked perfectly so I can watch BBC Iplayer in glorious HD if I ever forget to record a programme. Only gripe was initially using the EPG and not knowing how to access following days .Read a tip that its the button with a round arrow to advance to next day after which the advance button will take you to the other 7 days. . 12 September 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent product and a good update on earlier models Easy to set up and great features. Using a Humax PVR changes the way you watch TV. This was bought to replace an old and very well-used Humax box. It has additional facilities including HD reception. Once you get used to using a PVR, you won't want to be without one. 01 September 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Despite a few Niggles worth buying Connected this freeview +HD recorder into a Sony TV, Home Cinema and Bluray system via supplied HDMI cable. To be honest this is when the niggles started in that the system kept dropping sound, disabling the Home Cinema system and reverting to TV speakers. Returned box to Richer Sounds who swapped without hesitation but same problems persisted with new box. Contacted Humax but they didn't know why the issue occurred. Played around and connected via Scart socket and seems to work as required through the Home Cinema system. Easy to set up and use - but do an automatic channel search in good weather, easy to delete recordings after viewing, reasonable signal strength of 82%. Record quality excellent. Internet setup was a breeze to setup. Another Niggle is that the unit has to be powered on to record scheduled recordings - it doesn't wake up like other boxes to record. 28 August 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by No sound! Bought this to upgrade set up to freeview HD but after a month the sounds has stopped working, so I shall be taking it back and replacing with another type. Disappointing after many happy years using the SD version. Web forums suggest this is a common fault. 11 August 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Quiet, some good features but restricted options & bias to HD. I'm comparing this with the aged (nearly 7 years old) PVR9200T that it has replaced; I'm still getting to grips with the new one's controls. Good points are that it is silent, and it groups each series of recorded programmes into a separate folder; there are also some "intelligent" features (e.g. suggesting programmes of a similar type to record) and more features (e.g. offering a choice of continuing playback from where it was stopped or re-starting from the beginning.) Bad points include: no LCD display, only a light which is Blue when on OR Red when either off or recording (could they not afford a third colour?); slower at starting; a bias towards HD (which would cut recording time in half, and which would be lost on my old eyes); I haven't found a way of setting an individual recording period by time, as opposed to selecting a programme & accepting the default times (or amending ALL end times) - I'd rather have a little more control. Haven't found a way of splitting a recording. 07 August 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by the product is a great extension to TV viewing Does every thing I want to extend freeveiw viewing 05 August 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Humax excellence A well built PVR giving the opportunity to record two programmes simultaneously while watching a recording. The HD quality is superb. It has a good solid remote as well. Overall excellent. 02 August 2014
