Deluxe Freeview+ HD PVR with outstanding networking

Humax HDR-FOX T2 review

 

The Freeview+ HD PVR that everyone's been waiting for

Cutting-edge design ; Slick interface ; Ease of use ; Multi-media comatibility ; Oututs Dolby Digital surround sound

No VoD until later in 2010 ; Can't trim recordings ; Bit exensive

Assuming the audio playback niggle is an isolated case then there is very little about the HDR-FOX T2 to seriously damage Humax's reputation as a maker of better quality digital TV boxes.

Humax HDR-FOX T2 review

 

We've long been fans of Humax's PVRs, right from the PVR-8000T, through to the HD-FOX T2, which we reviewed around a year ago. Few Freeview PVRs can equal Humax's models for ease of use and intuitive operation, and the HDR-FOX T2 is no different.

Packed with features, but still an expensive purchase considering the limited number of HD broadcasts. However, this is the best Freeview HD PVR around, and also has iPlayer built-in.

The Humax HDR-FOX T2 is a very good Freeview HD PVR that we have no problem recommending. The only issues we have are with its low storage capacity and high price. It's a capable machine, though, that works very well indeed.

Attractive design ; Good features ; Excellent potential ; Great picture quality ; Handy media sharing

High price ; No on-demand content at launch ; Low storage capacity

Despite the relatively high price of the Humax HDR-FOX T2, we still love it. It's attractive, usable and has top-notch picture and sound quality. It's an easy-to-use PVR, too, which is a nice break from the tedious user interfaces we so often find on...

If money is no object and you absolutely have to have the best image quality, usability and features, Humax's HDR-FOX T2 is calling. Loads of storage space, media file streaming and razor-sharp HD pictures make this the Freeview box to beat.

The box produces truly excellent sharp-edged HD pictures and good quality standard definition images, but its skills don’t stop there: rig it up to your Internet connection and you can stream on-demand content from iPlayer and Sky Player

Flaws are notable by their absence here, but if we’re nitpicking we’d point to the fact you can’t set the box to output the source’s default resolution – in other words, for most users it’ll upscale standard def broadcasts to 1080i. You might want that...

Well-made, dependable and serving up great pictures, the Humax HDR-FOX T2 is the best Freeview HD box on sale at the moment. Don’t forget its media-wrangling capabilities though.
