”Humax has done it yet again, with another great HD TV box.” ’What Hi-Fi?’ 2019 award-winner.

Freeview Play makes it easy

Freeview Play takes Freeview HD to the next level by offering easy to access, catch-up TV. You also get all the other great benefits of Freeview. With over 75 subscription-free channels including 15 HD channels available, there's always something to watch with Freeview TV.

The next step - scroll-back TV
Connect the Humax to your Internet via Wi-Fi or Ethernet and you can enhance your TV viewing with effortless catch-up TV. Catching up on programmes you've missed is easy - simply use the Electronic Programme Guide (EPG) to 'scroll' back on the last seven days TV programmes. With support for BBC iPlayer, ITV Hub*, All 4 and Demand 5, the great majority of the last seven days’ worth of TV are just a scroll away (requires broadband Internet connection with a minimum speed of 2Mbps). *ITV Hub is available in England, Wales and The Channel Islands.

Now with Netflix and YouTube
As well as the regular UK TV channels, the FVP-5000T gives easy access to other popular video services. If you’ve got a Netflix account then you can get easy, single-key access. YouTube, Freeview Explore and UK TV Play are also covered.

Record, pause and rewind live TV
Featuring a large 1TB hard drive, it's easy to record, pause and rewind live TV. The large capacity storage holds up to 500 hours of TV - enough to be able to catch up on all your favourite TV even after a long break away. With the pause and rewind function, interruptions from phone calls are no longer an issue - simply pause the live TV and resume when you're free again.

Share via USB and UPnP
It’s easy to playback stored video or music by simply plugging in a USB device. Alternatively, UPnP (Universal Plug n’ Play) lets you play content from your computer or NAS drive using your home network.

App control
Download the free Humax Live TV app (available for Apple and Android) and you’ll get a whole new level of control. With the app you can stream live TV or recordings from your recorder to smart device. You can also set reminders, schedule recordings and even access the TV guide from the myHumax portal.

Easy connectivity
For an easy, top quality connection to your TV, the FVP-5000T uses HDMI. Humax haven’t forgotten about the sound, either. A choice of analogue phono or optical digital audio outputs let you connect up to pretty much any soundbar, AV receiver, amp or Hi-Fi system.

Get the best in catch-up TV without any subscription fee – the Humax FVP-5000T makes the best TV affordable for all.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not as good as I hoped The Humax is not as good as I hoped it would be. The Humax Live TV app no longer works with any of the current versions of Android. The On Demand button only produces a message saying not available at the moment. The sound is very low compared with the normal TV I made the changes as recommended on line but this made very little difference. The TV guide would be better if it wasn’t shown over a faint program image. Its difficult to see any one using this without using loop-through but you need to turn off Power saving for this to work. The set up was easy to follow and the option to record 4 programs at once is good. The menus seem a bit odd but I probably just need to get used to them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smart little box which is easy to set up and use. We bought this after deciding Sky was just too expensive and we only ever watched Sky films, not channels. We now watch Netflix and Amazon and the tv guides provided through this neat little box show us a huge number of popular films and box sets and we always have something to watch. I wish the box had a light on the front to show it is switched on as the underside light does not show up and annoyingly the box lags slightly, but it’s not too bad and we’ve saved a fortune in getting this box in place of Sky Q, which is more important. We wish we had bought one of these years ago as we can record 4 programs whilst still watching another (if we wanted!)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great service I bought a Humax PVR 5000T. As usual great service great advice and a great extended warranty. This company is always a pleasure to buy from. I believe they care and that is all you can ask.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent - a great improvement on my old PVR This installed without problems in a large rack of AV equipment needing nothing more than one HDMI cable to a Denon AV Receiver (I have front projection Home Cinema). As my existing PVR had a YouView interface, the new interface took some getting used to but now I definitely prefer it. I needed to be able to access and watch remaining recordings on the older PVR, I appreciated the ability to pass-through the antenna signal from the FVP5000T to the older box - this keeps it happy and allows me to watch those older recordings without problems. When they have all been watched, the older PVR will be removed from the rack and retired (scrapped)! I also like the provision of an on/off button on the top of the FVP5000T. This avoids problems with system confusion when using two different Humax remotes with the same encoding and with two boxes! Early days but seems an excellent product. So compact too!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from early days its early days,only took ten minutes to set up including wi-fi well impressed with its capabilities.a little disappointed with the program guide a bit plain and doesnt give you write up on programs till you click to record.possibly i can change this i dont know,like i say early days but well impressed with everything else.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from User-friendly Bought this to replace a Samsung DVD/PVR which was clumsy to operate and kept missing recordings. The Humax is much easier to use and manage recordings. Some minor cons would be the EPG, which doesn't show more info on a programme unless you open it, and no ability to sort recordings by date.
Date published: 2020-05-24
Rated 4 out of 5 by from A satisfied customer So far I am very pleased with it. It was easy to set up and have managed to sort out all the features. Recording more than two programmes at once is a plus. I would have liked to be able to file recordings but will see what happens when I have more recordings. Good value item.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Unit I bought this as a replacement for an older Humax and am very pleased with it. Setting it up was straightforward and I feel it is producing a clearer picture than its predecessor.The new controls are taking a bit of getting used to but a very impressive piece of kit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Humax FVP5000T 1TB (Carbon Black) I bought this a couple of weeks ago to replace a much older machine that was clearly showing its age! We had bought a similar Humax to the new one from Richer Sounds about two years ago and have been very pleased with it. We are delighted with the latest one. It was very good value and was promptly delivered to us at no charge. Setting up was very simple and we are completely delighted with it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy to set up and use Manual very clear and informative - it was easy to set up, tune TV stations, record and play programmes and connect wirelessly. Freeview - BBC works well, ITV and 4 very slow to load, cannot access 5.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best box in a box I am just so impressed with this bit of kit. It does everything that it claims to and it has a set up guide as well as a full comprehensive user guide. I also phoned Humax customer support to clarify a minor issue and got straight through to an expert who answered my question straight away. Good value for money, easy set up and works well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Deep sounding speakers with room filling attitude. Bought a pair of Sonos One's to use as a stereo pair and they are fantastic. Linked to WiFi, Alexa, Spotify, Amazon music etc. so easy to use and a great addition to the ambience in the house, Best sounding speakers bought to date. Oh they look good as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Recorder Bought to replace a 10 year old Humax Fox PVR that has come to the end of its life. A lot smaller than old one. Lots of features with freeview Play. On/off lights are hidden underneath whichbare hard to see.
Date published: 2020-05-03
Rated 5 out of 5 by from A lot packed into a compact box Cannot really fault this unit. Easy to set up and operate. Comes with very basic cables for HDMI, Ethernet and RF plus a comprehensive remote. Would have liked a second HDMI outlet to enable direct connection to (1) TV and (2) AV Amp. However, I used a HDMI splitter to get round this. Slightly odd set up process because right at the end, it suggests a software update check. Any update that occurs seems to take you back to the start of the set up process after completion! But these are minor niggles. With a good aerial signal, it gives a great picture, even without HD. One annoying feature is the menu to select and set up 'Favourite Channels' which frankly is confusing and poorly described in the manual. Overall, quirks aside, this is a very good piece of equipment. Not cheap, but probably worth it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to setup and use I brought this to replace a SkyQ system which was getting overly expensive, I love the the TV guide makes it easy watch past programmes, and plan recordings, it also has most of the players, with BritBox being added shortly, making for me a complete package by

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Little Recorder This was bought to replace an old Humax box which was becoming very frustrating to use. It is, largely, a huge improvement on the old one, not least in that it comes on very quickly and responds to the remote immediately. The extra tuner seems like a good idea but so far I haven't tried recording more than two programmes at the same time so too early to judge how useful this will be. Picture quality is good and I like how it offers HD channels as an alternative if you select an SD channel which has a HD version available. One - to me - fairly big down point (which stopped 5 stars) is the awful smartphone app, Having used the YouView app for years until the randomly pulled it this offering is a real disappointment, put simply it doesn't work!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Humax have lost some of the features. This FVP5000T was bought to replace a 9yr old Humax. I was disappointed to find that I cannot generate folders to store my recordings in, as I can on my HDR2000T. Also, I can download recordings to USB from my HDR2000T to use on my FVP5000T, but not the other way! The HDR 2000T can't see the recordings, as they have been saved to the "root" section of the USB. The hand controller was better on the HDR2000T, & in fact it does control some of the functions of the FVP5000T.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from What a shame!! We bought this box as a replacement for the Humax Fox T2, what a shame that some of the excellent features of the T2 were not continued to the new and (better!!?) equipment. Features as chapters that could be added a programme, so you can find a particular place and the facility to jump fast forwards and backwards instead of using the fast forward and backward buttons. It's always a shame the convenient and useful facilities are lost in newer technologies. The only other thing is the gentleman I spoke to on the phone, told me it would record 3 programmes at once whilst watching a fourth, where if fact to can record 4 programmes while watching a fifth, as it says on the box.
Date published: 2020-04-19
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good features marred by temperamental 'Catch Up' Purchased this box a week ago to replace a faulty Panasonic box. The FVP5000T has better recording options but the 'Catch Up' performance is abysmal, box will freeze or perform very sluggishly. The Panasonic with it's older technology runs rings around it for Catch Up performance. I have contacted Humax for advice to get the box running to a reasonable standard, Humax have always responded quickly, but the box is still very poor with Catch Up channels. I would recommend this box for normal viewing and recording, certainly not for it's Catch Up viewing.
Date published: 2020-04-14
Rated 5 out of 5 by from New PVR I have found that this model was a big improvement on my old one (Humax FOX T2) which is not manufactured anymore. One improvement is the ability to record four programmes whilst watching a fifth, previously only able to record two. Plus the fact that this model is a 'smart' one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great! What more to say? I’ve had this Humax Freeview Play box for a week or so now having moved house and left Virgin Media behind. I’m so glad I did! The box will pay for itself in a few months compared to what I was paying with VM and the four tuners to record with is the best out there, almost comparable with the top of the range 6 tuner box I had with VM. Freeview Play makes watching on demand a joy and the user interface for set up and use is no more complicated than other boxes I’ve used. In short I’m delighted. I hope it lasts...

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great to be away from Sky! Been having problems with Sky for some time and finding it difficult to justify going down the expensive path of Sky Q. Whilst deciding whether I need something like Sky, decided to try the Humax on the basis of a recommendation. Very happy so far. Loving the ability to get onto iPlayer on the TV rather than our iPads and taking the opportunity to catch up with all of the Call the Midwife and, a new like, Race Across the World. Think I may be able to get a Now Firestick for Sky Atlantic etc.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from SUPER GREAT SERVICE I wanted to buy a DVD player and a new PVR as mine packed up just at the wrong time. I received great advice by email from the Weybridge shop I was going to order click and collect but they had to close the shop. Ordered online, good price, fast delivery. overall great service.
