”Overall, this is well-designed, slick, and extremely capable Freeview Play recorder.” ’AV Forums’ – Highly Recommended.

Freeview Play makes it easy

Freeview Play takes the nation’s most popular TV platform to the next level by offering easy to access, catch-up TV. With over 70 subscription-free channels and 20,000 hours of on demand TV available, there's always something to watch on Freeview TV.

Catch-up TV
Connect the Humax to your Internet via Wi-Fi or Ethernet and 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.

Record, pause and rewind live TV on a capacious 2TB hard drive
Featuring a high capacity, 2TB hard drive, it's easy to record, pause and rewind live TV. The extra-large capacity storage holds up to 1000 hours of TV - enough to be able to catch up on all your favourite TV even after an extended 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.

Stream in 4K HDR
For a step-up in picture quality, the Humax Aura is also compatible with 4K HDR streaming services. Connect to your 4K HDR TV and see enhanced detail, with a more natural picture than before. 4K HDR content is available via YouTube, Amazon Prime and many other streaming services.

Android TV and Google Play
Android TV and the Google Play store give you easy access to masses of video streaming services, plus apps and games. Simply sign in with your Google account and access favourite video streaming services, such as Amazon Prime Video, Disney+, BT Sport and many more (subscription charges may apply).

Chromecast built-in
Chromecast makes it easy to stream entertainment you love from your phone, tablet or laptop, to the TV. With a wireless link, it’s easy to sit back, relax and simply enjoy what’s on your phone, only on the big screen. (compatible devices required).

Google Assistant voice control, built-in
To access entertainment, change the volume, get answers on screen and more, just ask Google. Supplied with a voice activated remote, there’s no need for a separate Google speaker.

Smart home control
Taking voice control one-step further, Google Assistant also works in controlling a wide range of smart home devices, such as lighting, thermostats and cameras. Use voice control to set the ideal viewing environment, with the lighting and temperature just so.

Share via USB and UPnP
It’s easy to playback stored video or music, simply by 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.

Easy connectivity
For an easy, top quality connection to your TV, the Aura uses HDMI. The set-top box also features an optical digital output – perfect for connecting to a home cinema system or soundbar.

For a set-top box that’s the hub of your system, switch on to the Humax Aura 2TB.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice update from Fox T2 unit I've been asked to review this product, but I've only been using it for two weeks. Still, I have a couple observations: I moved from a Humax Fox T2 PVR, but it has still taken a couple weeks to get used to the new features and operating system changes. Freeview Play is a nice feature, but not one I've taken advantage of, yet. The Aura has loads of apps, but they are also on my LG tv and my Roku streamer, so a bit redundant. However, I get a really nice picture from the Aura. The Aura's remote will also fire up the tv and switch to the right HDMI setting, so very convenient. The Aura has not missed a recording and I've been recording lots just to see if it works okay. It has for two weeks, but I paid for the 6-year warranty, just in case. My Fox T2 lasted 10 years. The reason I did not award five stars is because of general slowness: switching between stations, switching between apps/FreeviewPlay. Once you're settled into a film/program, it performs very nicely. I am happy with my purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great kit for complete ease of TV viewing I bought this as an update to my previous Humax which works perfectly after many years. (It will go to my son). This model has more flexibility, more recordings and can be programmed remotely via the App. Very easy to use indeed.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Good but flawed operation I bought this 5 months ago to replace my previous Humax box and initially all was good & I was pleased with my purchase. So much that I gave it & Richer Sounds a 5 star review. However, I soon noticed quality issues with the box. The internet connection constantly drops out & programmes I record have playback issues - picture break up or there are lines across the screen. Frustrating and not what I expect from Humax. I wouldn’t buy this again nor would I recommend anyone else buy it until Humax improve this product. Richer Sounds are still 5 star but Humax need to sort out this clunky box. 2 stars only for Humax.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Packed with features. Very impressed with the Humax 4k aura 2TB. Does everything it says on the box and more, great picture quality and ease of use. Was looking at the Manhattan T3R, so pleased I chose the Humax.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great features! Great sound! It's brilliant and better than I thought it would be, it was either the Humax Aura or the Manhattan T3r and after researching both am certainly glad I went for the Humax, for me it's worth the extra cost for the 2TB hard drive and chromecast, and the quality of the picture and sound along with a good choice of options for personal preference in the settings.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Set Top Box I bought this to replace a BT Freeview box that was starting to play up. It is a great box, only let down by the absence of Netflix (you can't even chrome cast Netflix to it!). The box is a little slow to respond on occasion, but other than that it is fine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best set top box A much improved set top box compaired to older models & other manufacturers. Many new featues for streaming & a Google Assistant make it miles better than others. A bit of a learning curve involved but the Android system sits well with my Sony Andoid television.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Humax Aura 2tb Usual quick delivery from Richer Sounds. Relatively easy to set up just need a bit of patience for all the updates. Quite easy to use, record 4 channels at once although the EPG is a bit limited and you need to go to Freeview Play to search for anything. However my problems all regard playback. Pixelating, random freezes, chirps and jumping out of the recording. I have had my aerial checked, a new down cable going directly to the box. Humax suggest changing resolution from auto until you find one that works, or fit an attenuator! Really! I have tried various settings settling on 1080p 60hz. A bit better but the problems are still there but to a lesser extent. I have retuned and factory reset. I have fitted an attenuator but as yet not found a setting that is 100%. Has any one else had these issues? Plenty of other people have on the forums and even Humax point it out on their troubleshooting pages as previously mentioned. Really on such an expensive (by modern standards) piece of kit these problems should not exist. Paul at Richer Sounds is looking into it. As there is very little competition for this product ensure that if you are unhappy you can return it. I am still looking for the ideal setup.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Break free! We bought this to see if we could abandon our broadband with TV contract. We can. All the channels we usually watch through the old contract are there, complete with catch up. Apps for most streaming services are there and easier to use (only Netflix is missing but that can be cast from a smartphone to the built-in Chromecast). Recordings are sorted by the source channel- easy to find recordings from bbc2/c4/itv1234 /Skyarts etc. Found yesterday that we can use our phone to play a recording to another TV anywhere in the house that has a Chromecast attached (costing about £50). New contract with phone less than £30 per month. Old contract was about £45 but the renewal quoted £80+. Some savings after 6 months. Winner!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Replacement Humax My old Humax box gave up the ghost after 10 years due to faulty tuners. My local Richer Sounds (Prestwich) had the ideal replacement, the Humax Aura which has many more features than the previous model. They even priced matched it against a web competitor for £30 less than the store price. Excellent service as ever from staff I’ve been buying from for years.

I took up the offer and the item was delivered the following Monday at no extra cost. FANTASTIC! Thank you Preston branch

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointing for multi TV setup I bought this Humax device as a Freeview alternative to a Sky Q multiroom setup. The idea was to use the Humax advertised ability to either cast (via the app) or use DLNA to allow other TV's within my local network to view recordings. I verified this with Humax customer support prior to purchasing. I setup the Aura device (hardwired), updated the firmware and then tested this functionality and the results were very disappointing. On a HD recording, there is no way to fast forward or even skip ahead when using the casting or DLNA functionality, everything is transcoded down to SD resolution and the speed is woeful. Also, once you have viewed a recording or channel on a DLNA client, the system loses its metadata, so you just get a filename, which doesn't mean anything. I had such high hopes for the Aura, but it really is a disappointing device and not fit for my purpose. There are a lot of reviews stating that many of the early problems have been fixed with firmware updates, but it seems not on the app casting or DLNA side. If you want a basic single screen Freeview recorder and streamer, it may be a good fit, but its an awful lot of money just for that and there are many other options available. Hopefully Humax will develop a product which feels more finished next time. It seems wrong to release something and have to rely on software updates to get the basic functionality to work. Richer Sounds were faultless during this process and have allowed me to return the device for a full refund minus shipping costs), which is more than fair. I'll definitely use Richer Sounds again (the customer service really is excellent) but I'll avoid Humax in future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great service from Richer Sounds & A brilliant box Richer sounds were excellent as always, very fast delivery and getting their very reasonably priced 6 year warranty gave me peace of mind. The Humax Aura seems to be a fantastic bit of kit so far, the tuner(s) aren't the strongest and I did have to pay to get a TV aerial man out to improve our signal but since then it's been fine, no break ups at all and I have all the available channels including HD. It's much better than the Sky TV box we've been using and means we can finally cancel our expensive sky contract! There's tons of content available on the Humax Aura, all the UK freeview stuff, catch up channels, free box sets, etc etc. Being able to record 4 things at once is brilliant and the 2TB HDD is the icing on the cake. The Aura has a bad name because when it was first released there were lots of bugs but so far my experience has been good - they seem to have fixed the most common issues people had in the beginning. The only bug I've found so far is when I unpaused a Youtube video I could hear the audio but the video was still frozen, I simply rewound 10 seconds and pressed play and it fixed it so that's no big deal! Time will tell if I encounter other problems but for the first few days I've had it it's been running very well indeed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great 4K Humax Aura 2TB (once replaced) I would like to thank Richersounds for helping me with the Humax Aura 4K 2TB. My first box had a problem with signal quality on the SD channels. After checking with Humax helpline and trying resetting and manual tuning I realised the problem was with that particular Aura and Richersounds offered to replace as still within 14 days. Thank you Rosie at Brighton Richersounds! The new Aura is really great. It’s a lot faster than my old Humax 4000T. It’s very internet savvy with Freeview catch up services and Amazon Prime and YouTube (sadly no Netflix yet or Apple TV). The HD picture is good as upscaling to 4K (not as good as 4K source but no worse than TV itself) even the Standard Definition channels look not bad. It has voice search with google and set up is pretty straightforward, with a bit of signing in to catch up services. Once done you can use the guide to scroll back to missed programmes and launch catch up services pretty quickly. The 2TB drive for storage feels capacious. Three tuners means multiple simultaneous recordings possible. Recording series or single programmes is easy and faultless. There’s also a new Aura app to use on you smartphone to remotely record or watch at home. It would only be improved with the ability to create your own folders on the hard drive like the old Humax HDR-Fox T2 and Netflix of course. Great service from Richersounds
