Humax HDR-FOX T2 review


The Humax HDR-FOX T2 is the brand's latest PVR, enabling you to enjoy subscription-free HD broadcasts while its Freeview+ credentials mean that you can pause and rewind live TV, or set the box to record an entire TV series for you.

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.

Humax HDR-FOX T2

After comparing the HDR-FOX T2’s considerable talents with those of its rivals, there can be little doubt that the Humax is the best of the bunch. The level of recording flexibility, immaculate onscreen presentation, slick operation and extensive...

Humax HDR-FOX T2 review: Network skills


A nice little extra that could improve over time, but don't treat it as more than icing on the cake

Media streaming, potential in software updates

No inbuilt WiFi, format support is meh

Humax HDR-FOX T2


image quality & range of features

playback of recordings could be more straightforward-involves a 2step process, which is not intutive. would benefit from a button marked 'recordings'. also the button used to delete a programme is not called 'delete'. these are probably minor niggles
