Humax HD-Fox T2 receiver - Pocket-lint

 

The Humax HD-Fox T2 offers up great looking controls and an EPG that will leave your default Freeview guide looking rather drab. The media player functions

Free HD channels, connectivity, compact, media player functions

Limited format support for media playback

As a set-top box it performs perfectly well when fed a good signal. Freeview HD content looks beautiful and you'll find yourself watching Coronation Street in HD just because you can. But the real treat is getting access to the likes of BBC's drama and...

Humax HD-FOX T2 review

 

First Freeview HD box brings free high definition TV to the masses

Free HD programming ; Good network streaming ; Good SD and HD pictures

No PVR function yet ; Can't read HD movie files ; No Wi-Fi

So, the first Freeview HD box is here in the form of the Humax HD-FOX T2.

Humax HD-FOX T2 review

 

Freeview TV has expanded recently into high-definition broadcasts. But there are several important catches about receiving free-to-air terrestrial HD programmes.

We’re looking forward to seeing tuner cards and USB adaptors to turn a media-centre PC into a Freeview HD-viewing platform; but until then the Humax serves as a good entry point as a standalone set-top box with networking potential.

Humax HD-FOX T2 review

 

By set-top box standards it's pricey, but it does do HD. So, should you bag one before the World Cup kicks off?

You're paying a premium, but if you want free HD, the Humax HD-FOX T2 is very impressive

Humax HD-FOX T2 review

 

Best Freeview HD receiver, Awards 2011. No satellite dish, no cable, just high-definition images. This is a very impressive Freeview HD set-top box

Thoughtful, versatile design ; learning remote ; great Freeview image ; dynamic sound

A little pricier than its rivals ; won't output DD 5.1 on Freeview HD broadcasts

Best Freeview HD receiver, Awards 2011. If you want the joy of Freeview HD, this is the best way to do it – simples

Humax HD-Fox T2 review

 

It's taken a little longer to arrive than we expected, but we finally took delivery of the first Freeview HD product: Humax's HD-Fox T2. We first saw a working prototype at Humax's pre-release demonstration in early December 2009, and now we've had...

It's the simplest way to get HD, but it's expensive considering it only has a single tuner.

Humax HD-FOXT2

 

HD TV down your aerial is now possible, some people do not want it with a PVR and this solution from Humax is one such option. So currently apart from all the standard definition stations channels 50-52 are HD channels.

This unit does allow access to a DLNA server via Ethernet and as it also has a USB port you can show or listen to external content by either of those methods so a slide show of your holiday snaps is now easily shown on your TV and you can even have...

With the Humax HD-FOX T2 you can receive Freeview HD - the easiest way to watch high-definition television at home.

We're looking forward to seeing tuner cards and USB adaptors to turn a media centre PC into a Freeview HD-viewing platform; but until then the Humax serves as a good entry point as a standalone set top box with networking potential.
