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 45 reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Not happy This product proved to be very poor and has been returned to the store. I was unable to get any sound from it unless I did a Factory restore every time I turned the machine on. 18 June 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 I like this easy to use sleek looking machine It is a nice little piece of equipment. Sleek looks love the blue light. Nice to have something that does a good job at the touch of a button. Delivery was quick too. 15 June 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Does the job Set up easily and seems easy to use. No doubt more expensive products do more but this is fine for my needs. 08 June 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by HDR 2000t So far so good. Great team, was shut but opened up when we got there. Thanks again team. 08 June 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by An excellent piece of equipment With high-specs and lots of great features, this hard disc recorder is excellent value for money. So far (only had it a week) all going well and very easy to use (logic and common sense prevails in most cases). Minor nag is the slight 'clunkiness' noise from the drive as it works/rotates/whatever it is a hard drive does. But if this proves to be the only grumble then I will be more than happy with this machine. 03 June 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Does what it says on the tin. Good product this. Great picture, easy set-up. Not yet fathomed all the finer details of the machine but so far so excellent. 27 May 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good but struggle to set up Initial download went well, but screen quickly darkened and became unwatchable. Has taken a lot of effort and sorting to get a satisfactory picture. Even now the screen gradually darkens whilst watching. A big disappointment after previous very satisfactory model. Sadly, previous similar model failed to download update. No indication in instruction book that uploads take place at night so this was missed. An attempt to download update via computer failed and caused irreparable damage. New instruction book does mention downloading of updates at night, but I do not normally leave things on at night. 20 May 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by At last, an easy way to record favourite TV programmes in advance We're very pleased with the Humax's ease of operation, and even though it only arrived a couple of days ago we already feel that our TV watching lives have been much enhanced. We no longer miss our favourite programmes if they clash with some other activity, and it's a simple matter to programme the Humax to record all the episodes of a series, or the movies of our choice, even well in advance. Having grown up with video recording we find the Humax a huge advance, because it's simple to programme and does most of the work itself. No more random scrolling through the schedules looking for something good to watch, or missing parts of favourite programmes - and as the icing on the cake, we can fast forward through advertisements if we want. Thankyou Humax and Richer Sounds! 18 May 2015
