”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.

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 5 out of 5 by from Great machine Easy to use and allows you to record four programmes together.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to setup and use I have had this recorder for a few weeks now and it does everything I wanted. I found it so quick and easy to learn and the keying in very intuitive. If I could fault it I would say that recording multiple programs can be a bit slow and tedious in the guide, if the channel numbers and times are spread out, but this is a minor niggle in real terms

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointed and Confused I bought this to create a record, play/pause capability with my high spec Smart TV. Sadly it is very slow and I get the 'circle of death' frequently when trying to watch films or boxed sets via Netflix etc. Before the Humax, my connectivity has been superb even with multiple TVs, games units, pcs etc in the house. I have been a fan of Huma in the past, but even with excellent tech support from RicherSounds, the 5000T disappoints. In case it is a defective unit, it is being returned and another one tried. I'm hoping it will work! RicherSounds have been superb throughtout, such a great place to buy AV technology.

Date published: 2021-01-10
Rated 3 out of 5 by from OK only. Tries to be too clever! I bought this to replace an old Digital Stream. The Humax has too much functionality and duplicates a smart TV. Doesn't actually make setting and then watching a programme straightforward Slower and more complicated for most instructions More difficult to search, more difficult to set sub titles Now can't watch the internet fitness class on my TV!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Neat little recorder Bought this recorder 2 wks ago, I had some help with the setting up,Richer sounds were very helpful as they always are, didn’t take long, my wife is well pleased as she tends to use the recorder more than I do, being able to record more than one program at the same time is a plus. (Nice little recorder) J M B.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very impressed all round Bought to replace my 10 year old Humax. Very impressed with it's capabilities altho I would prefer epg to be on a blank screen. Impressed with the helpfulness of the staff in store both before and after purchase. So polite and not pushy. Why go anywhere else?
Date published: 2020-12-28
Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is such a step up from the 4000t Great PVR you can watch live TV any where you like on your phone table. Records up to five channel's a great buy and add the 6 year warranty six years of Richersounds backing can't go wrong.
Date published: 2020-12-27
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quality Picture The output quality is graet and the range of on demand TV is also very good. Easy to set-up (tuning and internet connection) and easy to use. Recording function is very simple to use Only 4 stars and not 5 because... There is a delay between pressing the remote button and the unit responding - a very short delay, but noticable. The programe information is not as easy to access from the programme guide as my old Humax Freesat box There is no 15/30/45 second advert skip functin (or I have not found it)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great features. Nice and compacted I bought the unit about two weeks ago , once we found our way around it very very pleased with the many things we can get on it . Definitely would recommend. Also before I bought had a look round at different units and Richer Sound gave me the best value, the unit being 1TB most were 500GB .
Date published: 2020-12-12
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product and retailer. As usual Richer Sounds were easy to get advice from before purchasing. The box works well and is a great improvement over the last one bought about four years ago. Multiple programmes can be recorded at the same time. It also has smart features so Netflix is available. Very easy to use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to set up and use I bought this for my 73 year old mum and it was so easy to set up and my mother has no problem being able to use it. She is not technically minded and so this was ideal for her.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fuly featured pvr Ordered on a Sunday delivered on the Monday. Had an issue with the state of the box. Phoned web sales and was sorted there and then, another unit shipped the very next day. No fuss just excellent customer service. Cheers Richer Sounds ! Oh and the product is easy to set up and use.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Nice idea but so SLOW! Bought as we moved house and no dish in the new place for Freesat. Nice interface and features but this box is SO SLOW. The lag is ridiculous. Wish I'd have bought basic Sky instead. Richer Sounds continues to be an awesome retailer though, in store and online!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from If you want a pvr don’t buy this one. Purchased about 1 year ago. Operating system is extremely slow. Lately it has failed in its basic fiction, recording. Numerous recordings have failed . I’d returned it for exchange as I took out an extended warranty but to be honest I don’t really want another one. Very disappointing.
Date published: 2020-11-28
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Human PVR box. This unit replaced an older unit that was not working,I had excellent results for eight years with it so decided to stay with the brand.New unit is very good and am very pleased with my choice.
Date published: 2020-11-23
Rated 5 out of 5 by from All that it claims to be. This has proved to be exactly what I was looking for. Recording and playback are easy to do and work well. And the ability to record up to 4 programmes at the same Tim meets all our viewing needs, as we tend not to watch programmes live but watch recordings in our own time.
Date published: 2020-11-22
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Price and Service Reponse to contact by email was excellent, purchase process smooth and delivery, as promised - would highly recommend. Easy to set up and use and plenty of space for storage.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Humax FVP500T 1TB Brilliant Purchased the above a couple of weeks ago, Brilliant. Always had TalkTalk boxes previously, but after 3 and all going wrong deceided to buy instead. Use the box all the time as you can record up to 4 things at a time and watch one all at the same time. Simple to use and looks great at the same time. So far so good.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great multi tuner PVR but slow to respond Moved from a Humax Fox T2, only because that wouldn't HDMI handshake properly with a new AV receiver. The T2 had a fast and simple guide with easy searching. Sadly this new Humax has a feature-rich EPG and that slows things down enormously. So frustrating. Click Guide and wait... has it worked? Oh... yes. Search? Yes that's there, but again it's slow and unwieldy in use compared to the T2. Each letter is searched as you laboriously enter it in a linear onscreen keyboard. F... (click right 20 times) ... 1. Then it searches on-demand material, recorded material, and finally future offerings. Series recording. That's there also and it's a super feature, but once more compromised by lack of anything approaching speedy response. What a shame - I wish I hadn't had to upgrade. Humax, ditch the media-heavy guide and keep things simple.
