”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 Great Service I bought an HD TV and DMR two weeks ago and they are both great

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Impressive features with the Humax My recent purchase of the Humax Box enables me to record and store up to four channels at once plus store more TV than even I might ever need. The setting up was simple, and sorted within minutes. The design of the box is very easy on the eye and the use of the remote control is smooth and effortless

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy set up, does the job Bought this to replace an 8 year old Humax that was getting unreliable. Very pleased with it and good value I think - the Richer Sounds price was competitive and I have confidence in the of course

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Each unit gets worse than the previous This is my fourth Humax, and slowest so far, with less features, eg you cannot create files for films, drama etc, layout of remote very poor, no position markers, no jump for adverts, cannot see if unit is on or off, as blue light under the unit. nothing compatible with other Humax units, why is it so hard for them to make a unit that is not only compatible, but works as well if not better than the previous units

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent TV Box Bought this TV box 3 weeks ago. Easy to install and set up. Great features and massive memory for recording. Come from Virgin Tivo so takes a bit of getting used to the interface but that will always be the case with something new. Does what it is meant to and does it well. It has integrated into my TV/home cinema system faultlessly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding service - again !! My son and I visited Richer Sounds to buy a recording Freeview box. The advice was excellent as the salesman clearly knew his range of products inside out. We finished by buying an excellent device and also took the 6-year warranty option as great value for money. While Richer Sounds couldn't provide us with a related accessory (a 15 meter coax cable as RS only had a shorter one) ) we were directed to another local supplier, where we bought one for again an excellent price. Great all-round service from Richer Sounds and we couldn't have been helped more by a very caring and personable salesman.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Humax FVP5000T 2TB Bought this humax fvp5000t a couple of weeks ago to replace my old hdr 2000t which served me well for many years, however this new one does does work well except for one thing, the humax fvp 5000t software interface has a very convoluted way of doing things and is also very slow compared with my old one which was much slicker easy to use... However i like to say the Richer Sounds staff were EXCELLENT.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from ANNOYING, DISAPPOINTING & SLOW, BUT HAS 3 TUNERS! FOR: Three tuners; record four programmes while watching a fifth; good picture; Dolby Digital Plus audio; 8-day forward EPG; 7-day backward EPG; series record; Freeview Play; catch-up apps; Wi-Fi, Ethernet and USB and connections; UPnP; SAMBA Network media sharing; analogue phono or optical digital audio outputs. AGAINST: slow; odd functionality; lost of signal; no display; status LED position; USB port position; EPG data problems; EPG loses 'Favourite' group; 'On Demand > All' has never worked; problems with Humax Live TV App; no 'Menu' button; no 'Info' button. First of all, it's not a good design. There's no display, so there's absolutely nothing to tell you what is happening. What's worse, you can't even tell that the thing is turned on in the first place! This is because the very small status LED is on the bottom of the machine and it's impossible to see. You have to place something underneath to reflect the light. I used a clear piece of plastic, it defuses the light so I can see what's happening. The LED uses three colours: red = 'standby'; blue = 'On'; purple = 'recording'. The USB connection is on the right-hand side of the machine, so you have to drag the machine out every time you want to use it. Why not simple put it on the front? The machine is very slow and clunky. It constantly complains that there's no signal when there is, because the signal to the TV is okay. That results in lost recordings or bits of the recording(s) are missing. If you create a favourite channel group, then it will default back to the main TV group when it records or changes channel because you've set up a timer. You then have to change back to your favourite group every time you turn the thing on. The machine downloads huge amounts of EPG data, pages of it! It downloads the full programme information and it seems to slow the machine down. The data isn't there when you want it and some sections of EPG data are missing in the main EPG. But, go to the channel, press OK, and the data will be there in the mini pop-up EPG? There's no 'Info' button, so when playing a recording there's no way to bring up the recorded programme information? There's no 'Menu' button and I couldn't work out how to get to the 'Settings' options. I had to search though the manual to find where the settings page was. For some inexplicable reason, you have to press the Freeview button to get to the settings page? It's the large red and white 'F' button in the centre of the remote. A lot of the functionality is badly thought out and it takes many key presses to do the most basic of things. For instance, you would think that if you press the play button when a recording is highlighted it would play that recording. Wrong, a big yellow error sign pops up on screen instead? It takes at least two button presses and a number of seconds to play a recording. Some menus will cycle round, others will not? There's no bookmark functionality. You can't create your own folders. It's very easy to delete a recording by mistake and there's no recycle bin! Unfortunately, there's not much out there to beat this machine, which says a lot.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Delighted?? All worked straight out the box, but despite a number of apps available there was no Amazon Prime (or am I missing something)
Date published: 2019-02-21
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Didn't Live Up To The On Line Reviews soooooo slow Bought 3 weeks ago to replace my BT 4K 1TB recorders ( record 2 watch 3) I wanted the record 4 watch a 5th facility which it does. However every function on it is painfully slow including changing channels I'm talking 3 to 4 seconds where my old one was instant, also recoding and deleting programmes as well as being slow you get a thousand questions. Remote control is cheap but I knew that from the reviews. Overall all I would have avoided this because of the slowness. the saving grace is recording 4 watching a 5th. really disappointed.
Date published: 2019-02-14
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very unreliable Purchased from Richer Sounds in January, it has recorded half the programmes the other half have failed because of ‘no signal’ which is nonsense. So disappointing, thought Humax might improve but no. Would not trust to record something I really want to see.
