Record one show while watching another or record two shows while watching a third from the on demand library or the hard disk drive. The HDR-T1000 boasts a built-in 500GB hard disk drive that can store up to 300 SD hours of TV programmes - that’s more than enough for over 150 films. You can also pause and rewind live TV.

Series Recording

When selecting an episode of a series for recording, you will be given the option to record the whole series.
Please see below for additional recording features.

Extraordinarily Simple

To enjoy the full YouView experience you need good digital TV coverage and a minimum broadband speed of 3Mb/s. There’s a clever little app to check both of these at youview.com

Easy Set Up

Connect your box in 3 simple steps:
  1. Connect the box to the existing TV aerial.
  2. Connect to the TV using the HDMI cable supplied.
  3. Connect to the router using the Ethernet cable supplied.
Please note, if your TV is more than two metres away from your route, you’ll need to connect using a longer Ethernet cable or powerline adapters (not supplied).

Chase Play

There’s no need to wait until the programme you are recording has finished before you can start to watch it. With chase play you can start watching from the beginning even while the rest of the programme is being recorded.

Accurate Recording

There’s no need to worry about missing a recording if the programme schedule changes, like a football match going into extra time or a breaking news flash. Schedule tracking starts recording your programme only when it starts being broadcast, so your recordings are always accurate.

Split Recording

Split recording lets you record two-part programmes with a break in the middle, so you don’t miss the second half.

Smart Recording

Alerts you in an instant if a clash occurs when you try to record a programme and suggests an alternative time to catch the show if it’s repeated or being shown on another channel.
Note: The above features are available on channels where the correct and accurate data is being broadcast. Some channels may not support all of the Freeview+ HD services.

    Bought a YouView box from John Lewis just in time for the Olympics.

    Initially I was dubious for two reasons:
    1) It's a brand new product and I didn't want to act as a guinea pig
    2) The cost, as I knew that within 6 months it would depreciate dramatically.

    However, it is simply excellent.
    If you want all your internet players combined into one simply interface then get this.
    If you want something so simple that when you want to watch a programme from the past you just type in the name, and up it pops along with all previous episodes, then get this.
    If you want the best HD quality, then get this.
    If you want to future proof yourself against further developments, then get this. Most of the big industry guns are on board so it's in their interests that this works.

    It already has NowTV, which is Sky's on demand offering. At the moment you can just pay for movies, but soon you will be able to get Sky Sports, if that's your wish. Soon LoveFilm and Netflix will also be onboard.

    The recording option works perfectly and 500gb is enough in my opinion to record many hours of SD and HD content.

    I'm a cynical bugger by nature, but I simply have no complaints.

    I really wanted to give Youview a five star review as the hardware is great the user interface looks good and really easy to use, but the software is bug riddled.

    I have the latest firmware 8.7.0 considering there has been a number of firmware updates, major issues have not been ironed out. On average about 1-3 times a week the box crashes as you turn it on and the only way to turn it back on is by switching it off by the master power switch at the back of the unit. The most annoying thing is that you set a recording and you come to view the program at a later date and the recording has failed? Even the cheap PVR's I have had over the years have never had the above problems? This is not good enough from Youview as it has years of development, extensive testing and trial period plus it has been on the market for 8 months and they still can't get the basics right.

    This is a real shame as the system is very good once it works and I expect it will work when the fix the problems in future firmware updates. If you read the youview forums loads of people are having the same problems.

    If you can wait till the bugs have been fixed it is a great system.

    If you are thinking about purchasing the Humax YouView DTV recorder then well done for being forward thinking. This probably will be the best and easiest way to get access to Freeview HD and OnDemand services without having to buy a new tv. It is a shame that is is quite expensive but I suspect the price will come down and I'm sure there will be a YouView box without the digital recorder in the near future.
    Installing was straightforward - ethernet cable and hdmi cable both included in the box and took around 5 - 10 mins to install fully. The look of the box is similar (?nearly identical) to the Humax Freeview Hd recorder and the interface is quite similar on the front of the box.
    The remote has easy access to the OnDemand service area which allows you to go and browse BBC Iplayer, 4OD, Itv player and channel 5's service. Currently BT vision is the only pay per service that is available on this box but I suspect more will come available (Sky's Now TV for example).

    My main concerns for this product is the software reliability - it has frozen once already on me but I have seen it happen so often with Sky boxes so I accept that it can happen - I hope it won't be a frequent occurrence. I also wished it had wifi but I suspect they will need to do this on later models. As the box is close to the router then this is no problem for me but having an ethernet cable trailing around the house is not ideal for new tech. Also the cost for this product is unrealistically high so I suspect that you could be a member of an exclusive club if you purchase. Expect a lot of "no, never heard of YouView" when discussing with others but don't be disheartened - it will become the standard for Freeview HD watching.

    There are some very good things about this product. The EPG is excellent. One of the best I have seen. The integration of V.O.D. and live broadcast t.v. Is the best thing about YouView. It is very well done.
    Setting up the box is very easy. Plug in your Ariel, connect the box to your t.v. Or A/V system with the supplied HDMI cable and then link up your router with the Ethernet cable, also supplied. The box takes about two minutes to boot up then just follow the on screen instructions to input your postcode and your away.
    Something's to note are that this is a noisy box. The fan is loud. This is not a box for the bedroom. Even in standby you can hear the box whirring away. Other things to note are that the skip forward and skip backward buttons on the otherwise excellent remote only work with on demand video. You can't skip in your recordings or when tine shifting live t.v. I contacted Humax support about this but I am still waiting for a reply to my email some two weeks later.
    A strange thing about YouView is that when you press the info button on the remote, the box connects to the Internet to retrieve the info. It says in the very poor booklet that comes with the box that this is so it can gather more info than any other service. I found this not to be the case. The information was just the same as my other Freeview boxes. At first the information came almost instantaneous as you would expect, but after two weeks of use it now takes a couple of minutes to appear, even though I have a very fast broadband connection. This makes it very frustrating to use the info button.
    The next problem to arrive is a strange one. On going to BBC4 on channel 9 the picture and sound disappear after about two seconds.
