5.0 out of 5 stars Slick, well built, and easy to use
We own two old Humax PVRs which we have been very pleased with, but for streaming have relied on an Apple TV which whilst excellent lacks easy access to iPlayer and other catchup services. I was attracted to the YouView platform for its reported ease of use, and in this device it delivers.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great box, but make sure you get a full retail guarantee
Nice box, and much superior to the original Humax YouView boxes. But those had a rather patchy reputation for unreliability, making them one of the few items for which it really was worth taking a retailer's extended guarantee.

So if buying one here, check, check and double-check you are getting a retail item with the Humax guarantee, and not an item that was...

This review is from: Humax DTR-T2100 500gb BT YouView Recorder Unit (Dual Tuner) + GSM-Fonz HDMI Cable (Electronics)
We own two old Humax PVRs which we have been very pleased with, but for streaming have relied on an Apple TV which whilst excellent lacks easy access to iPlayer and other catchup services. I was attracted to the YouView platform for its reported ease of use, and in this device it delivers.

The unit is small, discrete, and quiet with a well designed and quality-feeling remote, that can be programmed to also turn the TV on and off and control volume and AV inputs. The YouView guide is great - you can rapidly skip though the channels to pick what you want to watch and review the past week where clicking on the programme name plays it back via the appropriate catchup player such as iPlayer or More4. Even better, simply pressing the search button and starting to type a programme name brings it up to stream if available. This almost makes the guide and the various catchup apps redundant. Apps are the only place where the system is a little weak. There are the usual players such as iPlayer and Demand5 as well as the milkshake! app for kids programmes from channel 5 such as Peppa Pig, plus a Dave player. Otherwise there is NowTV from Sky but no Netflix, Amazon, or other streaming services. As BT and TalkTalk are major share holders in YouView I wonder whether other apps will arrive. It seems that the BBC and others are reducing their involvement in the platform although it seems a fairly safe bet with so many BT and TalkTalk subscribers. Obviously buying this box as a standalone item you don't get the BT channels but it otherwise works fine via other broadband connections which can be cheaper.

I understand that the first generation YouView boxes were a little sluggish, but this one is fast and works well. If you are in the market for a PVR to record TV, watch the free to air HD channels, and stream the free Catchup services then you won't go too far wrong with this box.

The Humax DTR T2100 arrived as quoted an well packaged. The unit is truly "Plug and go" and I was up and working within minutes of its arrival. The YouView Recorder is well documented and I have quickly explored almost all its features.
I highly recommend this Item and it reflect Good Value for money.
