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 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 Personal Video Recorder


One of the best Freeview PVRs money can buy.

The Humax PVR-9200T cements its reputation as the king of PVRs with a set of new features that enhance its already unbeatable user-friendliness. Picture quality is superb by digital TV standards and it offers a level of flexibility that's unparalleled...

Humax PVR-9200TB and 9200TS review


Whether you buy the black Humax 9200TB and or the silver 9200TS, you'll get a superb Freeview PVR with plenty of useful features and an unusually flexible recording system that allows you to do far more than other competing products

Slick design ; Easy to use ; Powerful functionality ; Can record two channels at once

Hideous remote control ; Very slow to transfer video to a PC

There are PVRs about with larger hard drives, but few offer as pleasant an experience as the Humax 9200 models

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 review


The Humax PVR-9200T is the Rolls Royce of Freeview recording, with every feature we could possibly ask of a recorder in addition to a massive hard drive. It's a winner against Panasonic's recorder on price, plus it's pure simplicity to use. If you need...

Slick design ; Easy to use ; Seriously powerful features ; Can record two channels at once

Not the strongest picture performer we've seen ; Child-like remote control

The box is very good at picking up signals, even from a small portable aerial. In fact, it picked up every single channel from the get-go with such an aerial, even in an office with a very weak signal. Audio performance is good, with defined vocals and...

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
