”This Humax TV box remains an excellent choice”. ’What Hi-Fi?’ 2021 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 4 out of 5 by from Problem with picture freezing The box is good with 3 tuners but the picture was freezing sometimes on BBC1 SD for example. Contacted Humax and lots of emails between us. Humax then said that my signal was too strong at 100% and I needed an attenuator to reduce it to 70-90% ???. But after all the testing etc & moving box to a different location it is OK so far. Why would it not need a 100% signal ??? Humax customer service was good and of course Richer sounds were excellent.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Another humax purchase This is the second humax we have bought. We had one years ago which was great. A few years ago we moved to a cheaper option and it hasn’t lasted very well. So we are back to the best. The box is really easy to use however I did struggle with the set up! The instruction booklet didn’t tell you what colour the light should be on the box when it is off or on. It is now set up and I only hope it doesn’t disconnect because I am not sure I could do it again. I am really pleased with the box and the use of it but the instructions could be improved.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Humax 1TB Freeview Receiver Bought this Humax box a few weeks ago. Prompt delivery. Box was really bashed around. It works okay. Fingers crossed. Easy to set up. Does the job well. Recordings are in text. Not as good as our old BT box which had a picture of the show recorded in a box, similar to Netflix. Staff at Tunbridge Wells helpful and friendly. So far so good.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does the job Humax has proven a good buy, only negatives are a slow start up, a count of around 12 before it comes to life. It has Netflix built in which my Manhattan doesn't and three tuners which we did miss when using the Manhattan.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good product I exchanged this for a Panasonic which unfortunately failed. Aways had Panasonic so it has took some leaning about the different features. The recorded on screen display is very good so you can see at a glance what is recorded and what is pending. With recording of four channels at once while viewing fifth is brilliant. 500 hours recording time. The only down side I had was the initial setting up. Everything went fine, put all the details in including Wi-fi password, then I cam to the privacy notices which needed to be ticked. Could not get the arrow buttons to get to the boxes and I did by some miracle there should have been a ‘Next’ button to move on but it wasn’t there. Choose to return backwards and lost everything and had to input everything again. This time it worked perfectly. Did not need telephone support in the end but a point to bare in mind that it only works weekdays. Overall very pleased and it is only a third of the size on then it replaced.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Hot, noisey and poor remote control I was hoping for better things from the Humax PVR, the only thing it brought to the table that my old Panasonic PVR could not do was record 4 channels at once ... which was good. Unfortunately the device ran very hot and the 1Tb internal hard drive was very noisy and caused a vibration which was audible inside a cabinet in quiet parts of the playback, something you never heard on the Panasonic. I have had 3 Panasonic PVR before the Humax and I do miss not being able to use my TV (Samsung) remote to control playback, the Humax remote only allowed me to turn the tv on or off, nothing else. So Ihave returned the Humax an dwill spend the extra money and buy another Panasonic PVR.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works well. Straight forward to use. I’ve had this for only 2 weeks now and am quite happy with it as I seldom seem to watch a programme live! My only comment is the TV guide with its black background and narrow font text which isn’t instantly easy to read.
Date published: 2021-04-18
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good solid PVR I purchased this human pvr a few weeks ago to replace my previous one, also Humax. The device was easy to set up and my old remotes still work with the new one although some features don’t work. I found that the functionality of my new pvr is not so comprehensive as my old one, but having said that I am more than happy with my purchase. The only improvement that Humax could make would be to replace the traditional hard drive with a solid state one as this would or should reduce the background hum that emanates from the device. My purchasing experience withRicher Sound was excellent as usual and delivery was very quick.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Software not a patch on the freesat version We've had our terrestrial set up for nearly a year now - aerial in the attic, the Humax 500T to replace the Humax freesat HDr 1100. Nothing wrong with the old freesat box, but when it rained the signal went - so annoying. And I can see the transmitter from the garden. So bite the bullet, spend the cash. The Richer Sounds rep said the software was the same as on our old box - it really isn't. It's way more clunky, less instinctive... the programme search is primitive, the rogramme guide is ugly and less informative. Recording controls are easy to get wrong, lots of other niggles. Having said that you can record as many programmes at the same time as you want - well, I've not come up against a limitation yet. I guess three at a time is common here. Couldn't do that with freesat. My choice was between this and a Panasonic. I believed the salesman. Oh well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use and install for the over 70's Bought by our son and daughter in law to replace our old and failing Humax. Delivery was quick and installation easy. We're very happy with this new and tiny box and all of the additional facilities it offers.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Better features than the competition I selected this machine as having the best options available. It is not quite as compatible with my Panasonic TV, but the additional facilities makes up for this. Their on-line advice service is excellent, too

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Compact and does the job I have only recently bought this and only just set it up. Now it is set up all the features I have used so far are working well and it will definitely be an improvement on the last one. I had one or two set up issues, where it was not quite obvious what I should do next, but I got there in the end.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does everything it promised - beautifully! I bought this to replace my ee television box which was being withdrawn.. It was easy to purchase with Richer and was delivered bang on schedule. I installed it myself without a hitch and am more than pleased with the quality, ease of operation and access to a whole raft of programs and services which were previously unobtainable via ee. Brilliant picture/sound quality. I would heartily recommend for anyone looking for a. Freeview box/recorder and, whilst not the cheapest, it is definitely good value for money

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ensured reliability. I already have two Humax PVR's and wanted third. It's obvious I would buy another Humax as the other two are so reliable, easy to use with all the necessary features for recoding and play back. The reason for three; his, hers and ours.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Awful I’ve had this about a week and I regret buying it. Unfortunately I disposed of the packaging so Richer sounds won’t except it now. I’ve had a few Humax box’s in the past and they have been brilliant but this one is not as nice to use. It’s clunky and not as smooth to navigate through the guide or settings. Also it makes a loud humming/vibrating noise which you can hear above a program, I was told this was normal by richer sounds. Buy the Aura instead it is a lot better in my opinion.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple and great value I bought this to replace my EE TV box which has served me well. The Humax is fit for purpose, user friendly and will save all the children’s programmes and which will keep them quiet!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Updated PVR Easy basic set up. Much smaller box than previous. Some very good new features compared to older devices. Miss ability to save files in folders. Was used extensively before. Gave up in linking box to mobile. Also total failure in setting up the new aura box. Did not pursue as BT box operates this feature with minimum problems. Price equates to matching features.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceptional service Wanted to make the switch from Virgin to freeview. Spoke to the store who ordered me the Humax unit which is perfect for what I needed. Nice looking unit with lots of functions. Considered the newer Aura unit but this has no Netflix contract yet. Super easy to install and a very good remote to help navigate the menu system. I have an oldish tv but was very surprised by the quality if the picture. Very pleased with both the advice and the unit itself.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good product Bought this on 15th January 2021, because of problems with a freesat 4K , this humax is far superior and easy to set up and use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Box is unobtrusive! A little more difficult to set up than the instructions but worked 2nd time around. Easy to navigate once set up. Very happy with the purchase.
Date published: 2021-01-22
Rated 4 out of 5 by from covers all the bases Taken a few weeks to master all the features. The major benefit is the ability to record more than 2 recordings at once. Although I do not need this facility often it is really useful. Freeview play is not as intuitive as Freeview however once you get a handle on it it is better. The remote control is aesthetically rather clunky but does the job. I have been a fan of humax recorders for a long time and if this one has the longevity of my previous one I will be delighted.
