Humax PVR-9200T v2 Freeview player review


When we reviewed the original Humax PVR-9200T back in October 2006, we loved the functionality that it offered, giving an experience that was almost the same as having Sky+, but without the series link functionality. Now, with either a newly...

Series link gives Sky+ functionality without the monthly subscription, dual tuners allow recording of one channel while you watch a 2nd, easy to use menus, excellent picture quality

The quality of the series functionality is only as good as the information transmitted by the broadcasters, so you sometimes miss the end of programs, slow EPG programming still persists

A great leap forward in Freeview box technology, allowing Sky+ type recordings to be programmed easily without the need for a monthly subscription. Broadcasters need to ensure accuracy of transmitted timing signals to ensure correct functionality

Humax PVR-9200TB review


Expensive, but comes with plenty of bells and whistles

Boundary-pushing feature list

Only 80 hours recording capacity

Fast and feature-packed, this box offers great pictures and versatile socketry. It's smaller capacity makes it pricey, though

Humax PVR9200T Personal Video Recoder review


Those of us serious about getting the most from a home A/V setup will have undoubtedly invested in a Sky subscription by now. Those who can't afford the monthly outlay, don't want to pay it or have blown their cash on a 50” LCD can adopt the lite...

160GB hard drive for up to around 90 hours of recording, dual-tuner, very easy to use

No component output, DVD player or card reader, minus points for aesthetics

The 9200T is a high-end performance solution for those who only need Freeview channels but want PVR functionality

Humax PVR-9200T review


Dual-tuner PVRs are now a lounge essential, particularly for those not blessed with a Sky+ box. Time-shifting and one-button recording are things that, once tasted, are impossible to live without, and manufacturers like Sony and Pioneer combine such...

Humax PVR-9200T


Well equipped and easy to use, but now needs a hefty price cut to stay competitive

Smart looks; well built; easy to use; good contrast

Slightly soft pictures; colours can be overblown at times

The Humax PVR-9200T helps you in keeping up with your favourite television programmes. It is a Digital Terrestrial Set-Top Box that allows the viewer to record one show while watching another, and to record two (2) channels simultaneously while...

Humax PVR9200T


It's also the only model here that bears the latest Freeview Playback 2 certification and includes useful features including auto buffering and schedule or overrunning sports events.

Records two channels simultaneously; CI card slot; ease of use; Bright, vivid picture quality

Comparably expensive; oversized design; lacks fine detail
