Humax PVR Smart

 

Humax's standard-definition PVR Smart has two digital tuners and a 160GB hard disk built in, allowing simultaneous recording of two stations and storage capacity for up to 100 hours of video.

Smooth fast-forward and rewind in high-speed scanning mode ; Commercial skip button ; Dual tuners allow simultaneous recording of two channels ; Responsive, intuitive menus

Humax's standard-definition PVR Smart has two digital tuners and a 160GB hard disk built in, allowing simultaneous recording of two stations and storage capacity for up to 100 hours of video.

Smooth fast-forward and rewind in high-speed scanning mode, - Commercial skip button, - Dual tuners allow simultaneous recording of two channels, - Responsive, intuitive menus

No HDMI or component video connections, - Doesn't support third-party EPGs, - Bundled PC software wouldn't let us connect to PVR via USB

A decent choice if you're looking for a standard-definition PVR with dual-tuners, although we still feel the slightly more expensive Topfield TF5000PVRt is a better deal.
