5.0 out of 5 stars Another solid Humax 31 Aug 2009
By tallpete33 TOP 100 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Verified Purchase
Having owned one of the early Humax PVRs, the excellent 800 for many trouble-free years, I decided it was time to upgrade when I bought a Sony Bravia LCD TV for the following reasons:

1) Twin tuner
2) Larger recording capacity (up to 200 hours)
3) HDMI upscaling
4) Series Link

For those who are unsure what a Freeview PVR (Personal Video Recorder) is, it is essentially the free-to-air version of Sky+ i.e. it is a Freeview receiver with an internal hard disk that allows you to do everything Sky+ can do (record, pause and rewind live or scheduled TV) and in some cases better. No discs or tapes required. Obviously no Sky subscription means no Sky channels and also note THIS BOX IS NOT HD but SD (Standard Definition) only.

As Amazon were the cheapest I bought here again and super saver delivery was a decent 3 days. Out of the box, I was surprised to see it came with both a SCART and HDMI lead which is unusual, but welcome. Setting up was an absolute doddle, just a case of plugging in the power, co-ax input (from wall to box), co-ax output (to TV) and of course the HDMI to the TV. I then went to the menu to search for channels and was up and running in about 10 minutes. I was helped in the setup as the menu is very similar to my old Humax (I haven't needed to look at the CD manual) but with a few useful tweaks. A case of if it ain't broke.....

The box itself is fairly attractive in a black and understated way. The remote is also quite smart and sleek. The advanced buttons are hidden under a sliding flap at the bottom which is a good idea. Recording is very easy; just find the programme on the excellent (if slightly small) EPG and click ok.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Piece Of Kit 20 May 2009
By Steve
Verified Purchase
Had this for a few of days now, after ditching my Thomson box, which just kept freezing and not turning on..only over a year old. Hughes direct were quick to deliver and had no problem with them, although as others have said they send this out in its product box, not within a brown box, but you could say they are reducing the impact on the environment.

The Humax pvr9300t is well worth the money and once you get used to the functional differences then it's straight forward to operate.

Set up it a breeze, just connect, switch on and its scanning channels
before you do anything else and then save them and you're there. Each channel is displayed in the led on the pvr itself (nice touch!) and the time is downloaded from the aerial and pretty close to the radio controlled clocks. Yeah. The EPG is slow to download, due to Humax beleiving that 9300t should have the most up to date programme inf and will adjust recording times if a programme's schedule changes, but leave the pvr, for 5 to 6 minutes, on BBC1 and all channels and days are populated or set it up to auto switch on before you're ready to watch.

Unlike other pvr's depending on which mux (multiplex) you are recording on you are able to watch a third programme whilst recording two other programs (whilst normally viewing TV just press OK to see the other channels available when recording), not heard of this on another box. Another nice touch!

If you're having trouble with programmes series linked on Channel 5 and find every occurence of a programme set to series link is recored (including the one's on FIVER), this is not the box but the interesting way Channel 5 have imbedded their series link data and can easily be overcome by manually setting a programme up to record weekly.

Finally.

My PVR arrived earlier than the original estimate, allowing me time to set it up and play with it over the weekend. Setup was simple and intuitive, but the main manual, for the more advanced features, is on a CD-ROM, which is just plain inconvenient. I didn't find the sliding panel on the remote control until I had looked at this on my PC.

I have a 720p HD TV, which is the max output from the Humax: maybe people with 1080i/p HD TVs will feel hard done by, but to be honest, it's still a very good picture, and big improvement on my previous Freeview tuners.

The EPG initally looks very basic, showing only 2 hours duration and about 5 or 6 channels at a time; but the keyword and category search functionality makes it one of the most useful systems I have used.

You can set up a favourites list, which you can arrange as you please, and I set it up to miss out all the TopUp, TV shopping, Quiz and kids' channels that we don't watch. Once set up and selected, that becomes the default list for both the EPG and the Channel List.

The Channel List allows you to quickly switch channels, if you know which one you want without having to refer to the EPG, but it ALSO has a pop-out panel that tells you what's currently showing on each channel as you browse up and down. If you're just looking for something to watch right now, that's probably quicker than the EPG. Excellent feature.

If the box has been on Standby, it takes a couple of minutes for the EPG to load, but that's the case with all set-top boxes. Just remember to fire it up before you start settling down to watch, and it'll be there ready for you.

But it's in the recording features that this machine stands out: it has a HUGE HDD, and the intelligent scheduling system is stunning.
