The best Freesat box,
This review is from: Humax HDR-1010S 1TB (1000GB) HD TV Freesat Recorder with Free Time and Wifi (requires Satellite dish) (Electronics)
I didn't buy this via Amazon, John Lewis offered it at the same price saving me from having to wait in for a delivery driver.
This is my first satellite video purchase, I also bought a much cheaper STB without a recorder to use for setup and for TV in a guest bedroom.
The Humax is very easy to set up. It works flawlessly with my NAS allowing me to stream content from MP4 files. The on demand services are also good but some YouTube content will not play. I think this is a YouTube failure the same content won't play on other devices.
The recorder is easy to use - the twin tuner works well. All similar boxes require two LNB feeds so I don't understand complaints about this feature. I installed the satellite antenna myself and all the dishes came with 4 or 8 output LNBs. I aligned the dish using DishPointer and installation including cabling took a morning.
Picture quality is excellent, the remote works well no complaints at all.
