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

Humax Freesat+ FOXSAT-HDR recorder - Pocket-lint

 

The launch of Humax's Foxsat-HDR was probably one of the most anticipated events of the year, with more HD screens appearing in living rooms across the

Easy to use, great interface, connectivity, no subscription, PVR functions work a treat

Lack of HD content, price

The FOXSAT-HDR delivers the quality content and experience that users of Humax PVRs have come to expect. Things just work with satisfying ease. But the thing you really have to suck up here is the price. At £299, you’ll have to multiply out how many...

Humax Foxsat-HDR review

 

Best Freesat PVR, Awards 2010. If you're looking to take the plunge with Freesat, this is the way to do it – a great piece of kit

Fantastic picture and sound ; superb usability ; class-leading style and build ; iPlayer support

Some rivals offer larger hard-disks for this money

Best Freesat PVR, Awards 2010. Still the finest Freesat HD box going. It's not cheap, but for now, it's the best freesat solution you can buy

Humax Foxsat-HDR Freesat PVR

 

For the money, Humax's Foxsat-HDR Freesat PVR looks like a great alternative to Sky+.

If you can get over Freesat's limited hi-def content and the lack of support for non-Freesat channels, the Foxsat-HDR makes a fantastic digital TV proposition. There's a capacious hard-disk on board, its faultless operating system makes it easy to use...

Humax Foxsat HDR review

 

Finally, a non-subscription box that lets you watch and record HD. But can the Foxsat HDR really take on Sky+?

If you’re looking to take the plunge with Freesat, this is the way to do it – a great piece of kit

Humax Foxsat HDR Freesat HD TV Digital Recorder Review

 

Over Christmas I was lucky enough to receive the Humax Foxsat HDR Freesat Digital HDTV Recorder, having had chance to play with it over the last few weeks I thought I was high time it got a review.

All in all, if you’re in the market for a new DVR I think the Humax Foxsat HDR Freesat Digital HDTV Recorder is well worth a look, especially if you have a dodgy terrestrial signal and already have a satellite dish fitted. If you've got any questions...

Humax Foxsat-HDR Panasonic DMR-BS750

 

HD Freesat PVRs

But what if you would like to record as well as view programmes? Sure, you can use an existing VCR or DVD recorder - but that's of little use as far as HDTV is concerned. A far better option is the hard-drive based PVR (personal video recorder), which...

Humax Foxsat-HDR

 

With eye-blisteringly crisp pictures, a whopping 300GB hard drive, a simple menu and some prime green credentials, the Humax Foxsat-HDR is one foxy HD set-top box.

Decent EPG and menu system. Excellent picture quality.

Limited High-Definition content.

Humax Foxsat-HDR

 

The Humax Foxsat-HDR is a High Definition (1080i) Freesat set-top box with 320GB hard drive, twin tuners and HDMI, Scart or component output. Standard definition shows can be up-scaled or backed up to USB drive, and the optical audio out can handle...

If there weren’t a ban on hunting with dogs, Murdoch himself would be dressed up like a toff and stalk this crafty fox. It’s cheaper and greener than the Sky HD service, with a huge hard drive, great connections and brilliant audiovisuals. Humax...
