"If Freeview Play is catch-up made easy, the Humax FVP-4000T is an ideal conduit: unfussy and getting better." 'What Hi-Fi? Sound & Vision magazine'. 5-star review. Tested at £200 for 500GB version.

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 60 subscription-free channels and 12 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 Player and All 4 the great majority of the last seven day's worth of TV are just a scroll away (requires broadband Internet connection with a minimum speed of 2Mbps).

Record, pause and rewind live TV
Featuring a built-in 500GB hard drive, it's easy to record, pause and rewind live TV. The high capacity storage holds up to 300 hours of standard TV or 125 hours of HDTV - 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.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from A backward step! Compared to our previous Humax everything is a step backwards. In the few weeks that we've had it, it's already had the dreaded "freeze" once requiring a full restart. All of the menus appear over a faded out image of the current TV channel, making the text unclear - why do this? Also, when a show has been programmed for recording, 20 minutes before the scheduled time, the machine shuts off the show that you're watching for 5 - 10 seconds with the message "No Signal". If you want to set up a recording 5 days ahead you have to laboriously scroll through the programmes 2 hours at a time! On the previous machine I could jump a day at a time. Every press of the remote control leaves the using waiting for 5 - 10 seconds each time, making think that the machine isn't responding. Overall this is a disapointing machine and not a patch on any of it's predecessors - shame on you Humax.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little box if you do not have satellite connection First, I should like to thank the person serving me who correctly identified the product best suited to my house Aerial thus saving spending on something that would have had features of no use to me! I have had a Humax for many years but the old one passed out, assume its hard drive failed. This replacement is far more compact, delivers a great picture (HD where available) and has on-demand features to watch catch-up. All in all, very pleased with this purchase.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from This product is not user friendly. This product is not user friendly. It was easy to install with the on screen wizard but from then on it was slow to switch on & completely took over my TV. The instruction manual was not very clear with basic instructions like switching on etc. I managed to record 4 programmes just to experiment & the next day they had all vanished. My previous recorder was a Samsung, much better overall.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good in many respects The set up was fairly straightforward, but the instructions were not that clear. However, set up worked and we are getting used to it. Picture quality on non HD is not as good as it was without the box, but HD is fine. Recording features are very good, as are pause and rewind. The phone goes and there is no panic in missing the rest of the programme. Overall, very pleased with the product.
