HUMAX HDR1800T 320GB Freeview+ HD Box 320GB Hard Drive PVR
Freeview HD is the over the air service that adds up to 12 high definition to over 60 TV channels and 25 radio stations, and all subscription free.
Twin tuners unlock all sorts of clever tricks for TV fans. You can record one channel whilst watching another, or even record two channels at once.
USB sockets allow you to do all sorts of things. Most commonly you can play media stored on a flash drive, but some units can record to one too or connect accessories like video-calling cameras.
This unit has an accessory available for it which allows it to hook up to your wireless network. Alternatively, if it's practical, you can connect it up with a standard Ethernet cable.
The bigger a unit's hard disk drive (HDD), the more recordings you can store. This product has a 320GB HDD. This will give you about 160 hours of standard definition recordings, or 80 hours of HD.

Quite simply it's High Definition TV through your standard aerial for free!
Built-in PVR for recording There's also a built-in 320GB hard drive. This will record up to 200 hours of standard TV or 75 hours of HD TV, and lets you buffer - perfect for watching a programme from the beginning while it's still recording. The same facility also lets you pause live TV, while twin tuners let you watch a different channel to the one you're recording or record two channels at the same time! As you'd expect, there's an easy to use 8-day onscreen guide.

Good in the important areasYou get a good deal for the price. Picture quality watching live TV indistinguishable from my Samsung TV. Recorded playback just as good with maybe the occasional very slight jump. Rewind / Forward / Pause / Play operation does quite often cause a click or splat on the audio output. The interface for Freeview info, setting and replaying recordings is good, with a good text search.
I had to buy a "Lindy CEC-less HDMI adapter" to fit in the HDMI output because the Humax implementation of the "Consumer Electronics Channel" seems dodgy. It stopped the linked remote control of my TV and AV receiver and made the Audio Return Channel unreliable. With the adapter, all was good.
Annoyances are the lack of slow motion replay, and a time display that only shows to the nearest minute. And the silly front panel light which shows Blue for ON, Red for Standby, but also Red for Record.

Great product but remote could be better quality.All the usual Humax features, great program guide and excellent performance but the remote feels a bit cheap, which is a shame. Otherwise would have awarded 5 stars.

Looks goodIt's smaller than my last one , but it looks nice, I only use it to record programs, it's been very good, and being an older lady I managed to fix it in and it tuned in easily.

Great machineBought to replace an old, similar but non-HD Humax recorder. Excellent picture quality and all the features I am used to. Used as a second recorder in bedroom which I why I only bought the 320GB version and is working perfectly to date (I hope that's not the kiss of death!). I fully recommend this recorder.

Not as good an experience as I'd hoped, so far.Had a Humax 9200 model for ages, with no problems. Then the hard drive failed & wouldn't reformat. That lost everything I'd recorded and wanted to keep. The 9200 is no longer made, so I bought an 1800T as nearest alternative in price.
I'm not fussed about a 320gb HD. Far larger than I need. As I found out recently, the more you have on it, the more you lose when it fails. Sadly, Humax have dropped a few useful features, incl "picture in picture" & the ability to fast forward recorded material while it's playing. A USB port on the back of the machine, while there's a blank port on the front of the case marked USB also seems perverse.
The rest is basically identical to my old 9200. Set up was quick & familiar, but on first use, all major channels suffered from picture stutter every 10 secs or so. Didn't affect recordings or HD channels. Re-loading all channels sorted this for a few days. Now it's just BBC that's affected. Might be returning this to the shop.
