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 Perfect replacement for my virgin media box Wish I bought this years ago now saving me around £500 annually
Date published: 2021-04-16
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Handy tool to cut costs Lots of storage, easy set up, bought to use instead of Virgin as the price seems to keep going up for no real reason so its time to stop using them and just have fast broad band this and netflix!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy Set up and easy to use features Bought this to downgrade my mum who was paying out for Virgin mainly for the landline but really only watched standard TV, she like the recording function (still used to the old days of video!) Anyway it seemed expensive and the internet speeds were pretty poor too and the support people are no help, so we decided to ditch the phone get new fast broadand and got freeview This box got the best reviews and has 2TB of storage so plenty, it has series link and has a nice feature where if there is a hole series you can set it so it will grab the lot (at least I think it will) The UI is simple the menus are pretty quick and it has Netflix and all the other apps included, it has wifi and lan (lan is best if you can use it) the only bad thing I can think of really is it doenst have the Amazon Prime app on it, if it was maybe avaialbe with and software update later on it would be a bonus and a no brainer to buy. All in All a great little bit of kit and Richers Sounds were offering a 6 year warranty with a refund if it doesnt get used, so might as well. The shipping was quick and well packed, a simple purchase and a good product plus the savings of not having those ever increasing bills that constantly come where there seems very little in return for the increase in the price!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Replacing Panasonic DMREX97 I bought this last week and I was impressed that delivery was the next day. My reason for the purchase was because of the frustration I had with a 3 year old Panasonic DMREX97. The Panasonic device is in my opinion 1990s technology. It only enables two channels to be recorded and does not allow one to view another channel. Instead you have to view a recording or a channel which is being recorded. I found this terribly frustrating. It is very slow to respond to any input from the handset controller (even a replacement one as well), has too many functions around the circular navigation control which means you can select one of the options inadvertently. Having tuned in and set up the new Humax I was pleasantly surprised at a vastly improved picture on my television. The recorder may not be lightening fast but it is a big improvement on the Panasonic DMREX97 and the controls are far better positioned on the controller. Richer Sounds staff have been excellent in their advice and after sales service.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Humax FVP5000T 2TB I bought it on the strength of knowing a local Richer Sounds branch where we can be more comfortable to ask any question or seek their help with their services on our recorder. That is the main reasons why i bought with a great confidence
Date published: 2021-03-20
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Impressed so far Bought this as EE are finishing their TV service at the end of this month. Up side very clear and relatively simply operation. Downside watch when you are setting up do not use the back button or miss any stages as if you do live tv will work but non of the apps. One thing I will miss is on EE TV you can select up to 8 channels and see the previous 24 hours for there entire offerings restarting any program that you have happened to missed the start of but I cannot find any non subscription way of doing this. Also it is a pity you cannot access Now TV or Britbox through this box.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not up to Humax Standards This is our 3rd Humax PVR. We felt the interface on the last HD model was better, but it's liveable. The real letdown is the processor. They've built a Ferrari & stuck a lawnmower engine in it. The time it takes to load your recordings gives you plenty of time to go & make yourself a sarnie. For a company with such a great heritage in PVRs it's a huge letdown. My other half begged me to return it & dust down the old Humax, but this has much more internet connectivity & I have no desire to replace our Panasonic plasma TV with a Smart one. So I guess we'll just live with it, but would a faster processor really have added that much to the cost?

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good features, good price PVR Bougt this as a replacement for a broken 8 year old Humax Fox T2. It does much the same, but has more tuners so can record more channels simultaneously. It doesn't have buttons to skip forward and backward by selected amounts of time (like the FoxT2) on playback of recorded programmes, only continuous fast forward or backward so you have to watch carefully as you do so if you want to skip adverts. This is a retrograde step. Otherwise it's a good recorder.
