”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 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.

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 Good Quality PVR I received this as a replacement for my Panasonic which which was broken beyond economical repair. Still getting used to the menus and function, had been using Panasonic for 4 years. Picture quality is great timing reliable and has a massive 2TB of memory, freat recommendation from Judy at Richer hOLBORN

Rated 1 out of 5 by from PROBLEMS PROBLEMS - NOT AT ALL HAPPY WITH THIS BOX Not at all happy as I have just bought this Humax FVP5000T (and not the newer Humax Aura model as read reviews that there were too many problems with the Aura) expecting it to be as good as my older Humax I have had a few years has been but unfortunately it isn't. It fails to record programmes every day - there were 4 yesterday which failed when my old Humax hardly ever failed to record. Also when box in standby and got TV on, the Humax is seemingly having a power down I believe when it is starting up to do something as it makes noise at this time and this causes the TV signal to be lost and the picture/sound for anything for around 5 seconds to 20 seconds and message on TV screen says no signal. This can happen many times a day. Wondering if these two problems are connected and the power downs/loss of signal are causing the recording failures (as these up to now have always failed part way through a recording so it might just record 9 minutes or 20 minutes of a programme.) It's not good to have all these problems with a new machine.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Humax recorder This device is a direct replacement of my old Humax recorder. It is delightful to have everything working smoothly on the remote again and to be able to use a product in the same comfortable way you could use the old device. The recorder has extra space and I find it very convenient to be able to record something from multiple channels all at the same time.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Poor software There are multiple problems copying and playing external mp4 + srt files : 1) When copying, only one file or directory can be selected. Attempting to copy more than one gives a single option to cancel the first selection. 2) Can only copy to the root directory of the internal HDD. 3) Coloured subtitles are not supported. 4) Raw (mono) subtitles can only be displayed in a very limited number of sizes and positions. 5) Subtitles display even when "off". 6) Cannot zoom when playing mp4s. 7) Directories (internal and external) are displayed in alphanumeric sequence, but files are not. 8) File names longer than the "box" do not scroll when selected, so it is necessary to rename files so that the sequence (e.g. S03E07) can be seen. None of the above problems arise on my 10 year old Toshiba media player. Humax have failed to respond to e-mails on the above. In most other respects it's a useful piece of kit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent advice and first class delivery Been using this for 2 weeks now and wish I'd got it sooner as it's far superior to our Virgin TiVo box!!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Too many glitches I could get used to the operation, but due to issues with the guide and Freeview play that returned almost daily and forced a reset I have returned. Contacted Humax who suggested 2 different resets, issues still returned.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from short ethernet cable This does what I bought it for, but the supplied ethernet cable was a couple of feet shorter than I needed, had to buy a new one. Also I turn my TV and box off at night and couldn't find advice on whether to turn on the Humax or the TV on first.
