Product Type: Humax set top boxes
Newest Review: ... The older boxes are simply not able to deal with 100 plus channels on their chipsets. Humax have spent a lot of money firing out on air... more
Good cheap recorder, does what it says on the tin.

Advantages: Duel channel recording
Disadvantages: Hard to find at christmas.
I was looking for a good replacement for my sky+ box and after a lot of research and price matching I decided on the Humax 9150t. It has ample storage for all of your favourite soaps and comes at a decent price. The menus are as easy to navigate as my sky box was and offer similar functions such as series linking and recording timer. It also has buffer settings to give your self extra time at the start and end of each recording just in case shows are not running quite to schedule.
The quality of the picture is good through the built in freeview and the remote control has all the buttons you need. Live pause-fast forward and rewind function as it should and there is a handy little bar at the bottom which represents the point in the programme you are viewing. The TV guide allows you to scroll through and find the shows you want recording and as it's a duel channel you can record two programmes at once.
If you're looking for a digital TV recorder I would recommend any of the Humax range they have been proven time and again and are a good choice over some of the higher priced recorders that do the same thing.
Summary: Handy bit of kit.
