”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 500GB hard drive, it's easy to record, pause and rewind live TV. The large capacity storage holds up to 250 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 features Humax was relatively easy to set up although we did call on the expert installer to check everything out.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Underpowered and slow The FVP-5000 offers great features such as the ability to record up to 4 programmes at a time but it's pretty flakey due to it often being very slow: press a button on the remote and nothing happens for several seconds, I'm guessing the processor in this PVR is underpowered. Also, the remote scheduling function just doesn't work. If there was a good feature-equal alternative to the Humax then things wouldn't be so bad but there isn't so I'm stuck with the FVP-5000

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Much more to offer than the Bat Vision box it repl I bought this item to use in our touring caravan. As well as being able to record up to four channels and watch another, thanks to the WiFi option I was able to access ITV Player to view a programme I’d missed. Streets ahead of the BT item, although, in fairness my model has now been superseded.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value for money Bought this to replace my old Humax and I'm impressed with the features

Rated 4 out of 5 by from READER, I BOUGHT IT AGAIN This is my second machine in 5 years. A major storm put paid to the internet connection in the first one and I was disappointed to find the new one had no new features (apple plus? Disney?? ) Having said that it’s still nice to be my own programme controller. I toyed with the idea of getting the 1tb version but frankly if we hadn’t watched something by the time it sunk to the bottom of the 500gb list we never would and we might as well kill it. I guess the fact I bought a replacement suggests I now can’t live without it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect: just what I wanted I wanted to be able to record programmes rather than try to remember to watch catchup. This recorder does the job perfectly I am able to record 4 programmes at once if I wish plus watch another. I am very happy with my purchase and would recommend it. The remote control is easy to use and a comprehensive guide to using the box and remote are genius for someone who is 73
Date published: 2022-02-03
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Undecided! This records 3 programmes as well as being able to watch a 4th at once - 1 more than our previous model. So a bonus. The information words on the screen are much smaller than the last model, so harder to read across the room. We have found this considerably slower to warm up than the 10 year old model we were replacing, and which only replaced as we were advised it was now obsolete so a minor fault couldn’t be rectified. So far the jury is undecided…

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy to set up This is a replacement, for an older humax box, and is so much faster, and a much better picture quality. So far so good.
