With many enhancements over previous models, the Humax HDR2000T 500GB is set to advance Freeview+ HD still further.

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 66 reviewers.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Not intuitive to use This item works well but it is unnecessarily complicated. It is not nearly as user-friendly or intuitive as the TV-onics one I got it to replace. 28 January 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Replacing Humax 9200 after 10 years The HDR2000T is a much more compact unit than the 9200T which is replacing. It is packed with features. The iPlayer, YouTube and Flickr are really useful. (I may find some of the other apps equally useful as I get used to the box.) The interconnectivity is also much improved over the older unit, so I can now copy programs off onto an external disk for long term archive (wouldn't this have been useful when England got Australia all out before lunch), and I can also play videos, stills and music directly from an external disk connected to the HDR2000T. On the down side, it doesn't have the on-unit display which the older models had, and the disk is noisier. It is not too bad, but the disk in the 9200T was more or less silent. The HDR2000T rattles a bit when the disk is seeking, which it does, particularly if recording two programs, or recording and playing. The unit doesn't have wifi, so we bought a powerline adapter to connect the unit to the broadband hub. 26 January 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Easy peasy So relieved to replace the previous box which only lasted 2 years before going random then dying completely. This one was easy to unpack, install & set up. Straightforward control box and menus. Reliable recording which hasn't missed the start or the end of a programme. Got to go now, can't wait to watch a show I recorded earlier! 22 January 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Value It is easy to use and has lots of features and is great value for money 20 January 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by Service good but irritation with the recorder Product ok except that it will not pass through a terrestrial aerial to a tv when the recorder is in power saving mode - a really bad feature 19 January 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by This product has many useful features and is nicely finished This is my third Humax PVR and the best Easy to set up and record Being able to record complete series and to save recordings into folders is great 11 January 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Product Easy to use, really pleased with this product. Glad our old Humax which we have had for years broke down. 05 January 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great features. Commands act almostly instantly once powered up. Picture is clear too. Replacing a new Panasonic DMRHWT130 which was faulty, I was recommended a Humax by Fred in the Bath shop and plumped for the Humax HDR2000T which he ordered in for me and then later he phoned to tell me it was now ready to be collected. I am really pleased with Humax. The sound and pictures are great and most importantly the commands execute as quick as you press the buttons. I have had three occasions where the Humax has output no sound on start up, with either watching the TV or playback and the disc does 'whirr' a bit, but if I turn on the TV first, then power up the Humax, so far I have had no loss of sound since. Hopefully I've cracked that little niggle, but once the machine is on, the functions, features and performance is everything I want. Full marks to Richer for their customer service once again. I have bought 2 HDR's, and 5 TVs', along with various bits of Hi-Fi over the years from Richer and I will not go anywhere else when I get service like this. One satisfied customer! 24 December 2015
