Humax Foxsat-HDR review


The first Freesat+ HD PVR, and the only serious satellite rival to Sky+

User-friendly ; Recording functionality ; Upscaling standard-def to HD ; Media hub functionality ; Classy EPG and menu system

Needs more HD channels ; Slow to boot up

The Guide gives quite a bit of information showing the current channel as well as the next six. Around 150 minutes of information is shown at any time with a description of the current program at the top of the screen. This is the default view, but,...

Accidental Purchase


We bought this product because the feature in the Argos catalogue 'suggested' by icons at the bottom of the page that the product would allow you to watch YouTube in addition to On Demand. However, reality is that you can only watch ITvPlayer,...
