Humax Freesat+ HDD video recorder

  Pineman100 11:22 24 Nov 2008

I just wondered whether anyone has heard any news of a launch date for the Freesat+ PVR.

Humax have been promising "mid-November" for some time now, but there's no sign of it yet.

Anyone know anything?

I understand that stock will be available from 1st december.
Comet are advertsing it on their site now.

One of the offspring went to Argos on Saturday - seems they have the Humax Foxsat PVR in central stock at present.

His is being delivered later this week.

Just a small point - the new Bush equivalent is a re-badged Humax PVR, in common with a Freeview model it sold/sells.

Ironically in a very well known consumer magazine's subscribers' survey earlier this year, the Freeview Bush model earned a 100 per cent reliability rating...:-)

If that doesn't tell you a lot about Humax.......

for that information. As soon as I've got Freesat, I'm planning to cancel my exhorbitant satellite TV subscription (no names, but...!), so I'm champing at the bit.

I've already had a fair bit of advice on this topic before (many thanks, Stuartli!), but I have one further technical question about the PVR.

Assuming I have a twin LNB and two cables, I know that I can watch one channel while recording another. But could I also record two channels simultaneously (if, say, I was out for the evening)?

Simultaneous playback of previous recording and recording of 2 channels, see click here

Note that Comet are no longer listing it, must be sold out.

Sorry, that's Freeview. Try click here

If Comet have sold out already, I'd better get my order in elsewhere, double-quick!

Many thanks to everyone for your contributions.

I've tried Argos, Currys, Comet and John Lewis. Nobody has any.

Anyone got any suggestions where I might get one?

Maplins for £274, but they too are 'out of stock'. Patience required, methinks.
