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 on a mighty 2TB hard drive
Featuring a huge 2TB hard drive, it's easy to record, pause and rewind live TV. The large capacity storage holds up to 1000 hours of TV at standard definition. Record HD programmes and you’ve still got the potential for 500 hours of stored TV. 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.

Play, record and stream, subscription-free, with the Humax FVP-5000T 2TB.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from works well, easy basic setup, good VFM Have had several different boxes over the years and this is slightly more complex having wi fi & network connectivity, but the self install should present no problems for most people , although I needed to refer to the manual for network setup. Pretty intuitive to use, just slight differeces from other boxes we've had. Certainly no major deficiencies, especially compared to the awkwardness encountered using previous boxes of different makes. Can do all we need to with it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy to use I bought this a week ago and so far so good. Its easy to use and to set up. My only problem is when I change channels the sound box comes on full blast but not every time!! Don't know if its my sound bar or I've not set it up correctly. Would welcome advice from Richer Sounds.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good But No Amazon Prime??? After reading the reviews I decided to get the Humax, 2Tb. Easily connected and set-up was a breeze. However, I went to set-up Netflix, no problem. Then went to set-up Amazon Prime Video...... Oh, I can't find it. Must need to download it. Err........ No obvious how to do that. OK, Google....... And I then discover the news that there is no Amazon Prime Video app for this box. What?!?!!?!? How can a top of the range freeview box not have Amazon Prime???? Very disapointed. You could say that I should have checked? But I'd respond that would you check your new car had 4 wheels and now 3? (Reliant Robin's aside). It never occured to me to check as what freeview box in the 21st centuary would't have Amazon Prime? Humax, that's what! Very, very disapointed. How can they think it's not needed???

Rated 4 out of 5 by from FVP-5000T 2TB A Good Recorder but has limitations This 2TB HDD with its HD tuners gives this Humax unrivalled capacity. The ability to record 4 programmes at the same time is a great facility. With internet access to Freeview Play makes this unit overall, good value for money. Its limitations are on programming where it's padding feature (adding extra recording time at start and finish) cannot be set lower than 3 minutes. Unlike my old HDD recorder it does not have PIP (Picture in Picture) even though it has the tuners to be able to allow this. It also doesn't appear to have a protected Archive facility.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from FVP5000T 2TB No BritBox app. or Humax requires updating ? ? ? What ever - disappointing ! Requires looking into by either parties. I’ll Await your comments ? Then I would willingly re-review ! That’s why low review.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from HUMAX PVR 2TB I bought this over a week ago and it was easy to set up and works perfectly. It gives me access to catchup TV, and a host of other channels. The recording facility is excellent and efficient. Also excellent service from Richer Sounds. I've bought from them before and never had any difficulties. A good buy and at a good price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Getting away from monthly bills and bad service!!! It really is very easy, By getting rid of VM. I had to change broadband providers, even this was not a problem , just went back into settings and changed the broadband identity code and that was it. The picture is really good I don't really need HD.
