Humax DRT800 Review and Prices

 

The Humax DRT800 is a combination DVD recorder and TiVo Series 2 DVR with a hard drive twice the size of its sibling unit, the DRT400. The DRT800 looks almost identical to the DRT400, with an uninspiring, clunky design. What it lacks in sparkling...

Multifunction DVR, DVD recorder, DVD player, advanced TiVo features and excellent EPG, double the storage capacity over the DRT400

Consumer review (newegg.com)

hum... not so sure

 

Tivo's 30min - 1hour hold times are lame. You have problems be prepared to stay on hold. There customer service reps are poor and there phone service that you have to talk to is ... too much to even say.

Tivo / DVR / DVD recorder is cool- Hands down. Cant think of anything better then being able to pause live tv / record shows etc

Mine did not work. The remote is very poor and as I have researched online it isnt only me having problems. They try to blame it on your remotes in the house etc... No,its this machine. The menu system is a bit laggy as well

Is there anyone left who is unfamiliar with Tivo.  In just a few short years Tivo has become so ubiquitous (thank you dictionary.com) that it has taken on verb form.  I'd conjugate it for you, but conjugations in English are just so deathly boring.  No...
