Generally technology is there to make life easier for us and the Humax 9200 PVR does exactly that. This is my second PVR after the bug ridden Panasonic TUTCH-100 that I bought last summer, I have owned the Humax since December 2005 and so have experienced the joys of this machine for a while now.

Set up is easy as with most visual equipment these days, connect your aerial to the Humax, connect the Humax to your TV and begin scanning in the available radio and tv channels - the strength of your aerial coupled with the local freeview signal will determine how many you will receive.

Once this is done, sit back and live the couch potatoes dream !

The Humax can record up to 100 hours of tv, no variable quality of recording settings here, just the way I like it. The picture that I receive on on my tv via my Humax is very good indeed.

With twin freeview tuners you can record two programmes at the same time whilst watching a previously recorded one from the built in 160 gig hard drive or depending on which two channels you are currently recording you can actually watch a third channel live - freeview channels are divided in to "Mux's", think of them as groupings, depending on which groups the channels you are recording from you may be able to watch a third live. By pressing the "List" button on the remote you will be shown which channels are available to watch.

Adverts, get on my nerves or what ! I usually go channel hopping during ad breaks and for those of you who want to know when the programme is back you can use the Picture in Picture function. Options include displaying one channel in a specific corner (you can move it around) or you can display them both side by side, you can also flip between the two.

So far have found this a stunning piece of kit. It does everything it should do and it looks good too.
Some reviews have warned that PVR's can be very noisy but the 9200 is absolutely unintrusive, in fact the main problem is that it is difficult to see if it is actually recording. It certainly changes viewing habits as a single click on the program guide sets up the recording. The times can easily be amended, if required, and set to repeat recordings. It is all so much quicker than a VCR.
The quality of the replays is as good as the originals and the stills and slowmo are perfect.
The twin tuners enabling two recordings to be made simutaneously, or to record and view another programme is excellent.
To be able to choose a recorded program from a list with the orginal title and date is excellent. No more labourious winding tapes backwards and forwards with bits of card noting recordings made.
Highly recommended.

I wholly recommend this box. The software has just been upgraded this weekend (over the air) and so it now provides two key features that were lacking before:

- auto-padding (you can set it to automatically start recordings a few minutes early and to end a few minutes later). This means that you are less likely to miss the start or finish if a programme is not running to time. This is very easy to setup.

- chase-play, you can now start to watch a programme that is recording before it has finished.

If you read the forums at digital spy you will see that some people still have a few niggles but most now seem to be very happy. I have owned my box for 3 months and found it to be very reliable and easy to use. If you haven't owned a pvr before you will be amazed at how convenient it is - in my view there aren't many gadgets for under £200 that can do so much. Just be warned that you might end up watching more TV!

[One thing to be aware of - new boxes currently being delivered might not be loaded with the latest version of the software. If so you would either need to update it via a pc, which is a bit cumbersome, or wait for the next software broadcast to gain the new features].

This has got to be the best AV purchase I have made in the last 10 or possibly 20 years - Video and DVDr are made redundant - its only failing is that you cannot play DVDs through it and therefore need a separate DVD player. I previously had a Samsung HDD/DVD recorder which had the most user unfriendly, un-intuitive controls known to man. Thankfully it ceased to function after a few weeks and Amazon refunded the cost without fuss. I looked at the Sony 200 but it wasn't half as user friendly as the HUMAX. The recorder is plug and play and it even auto-updates the software on the air. To record a programme look it up on the electronic programme guide - put the cursor on the programme and press OK - its that simple. Picture and sound quality are excellent and it's crammed with useful and, unlike most of the others, accessible, easy-to-use functions such as time delay, picture-in-picture and simultaneous recording on 2 different channels due to the twin tuners. Several friends have seen ours and as a result are now 9200T owners - if you have any doubts - find someone who has one, have a play and you will be hooked. Only down side - Humax have just brought out a 32 lCD TV with a built in 9200 t - it's the same size as a normal LCD TV and the quality is excellent - look no more trailing cables. Oh yes, final thing it comes with a 2-year guarantee as standard so peace of mind at no extra cost. Love it to bits - I just wish all consumer electronics were as well thought out !!!!!!!Humax PVR9200TB Freeview
