not got or know much about Freesat apart from its like Sky & Free after you buy the kit. You point to Humax, are these the knees bees of Free Sat kit? or is it you mention it because of the recording function ?
Thanks for that Stuartli, that is really good news. I have had the Humax Freeview unit for several years now and it has totally changed my way of viewing and now to be able to do that in High Def just makes my knees go weak even thinking about it. Can't wait for it to be in the shops.
Audio~~Chip - in my opinion Humax is definitely the bees knees of PVR's. They have consistently lead the way with their range of PVR products.
You can receive BBC HD channels on Sky but ITV, who jointly commenced the Freesat service with the BBC back in May, have stated quite categorically that its HD channels will only be available on Freesat.
As ITV now has the FA Cup as well as its long term coverage of the Champions League, that's an important factor for many, apart from the fact Freesat is subscription free.
Do I have to have new dish to watch Freesat or can I connect freesat to an existing Sky Freeview dish using 2 connectors which I presume I would have to switch to go from Sky Free to Freesat or is this impossible and would I have to have a new Freesat Dish.
I agree you can get free programs on Sky but are they the same as Freesat which I doubt and do I have to retune a Sky dish to receive them or can I run both Freesat and Sky Free without having 2 connectors? Remember the new Freesat boxes are in HD.
I would get one of these new Humax HD Freesat boxes when they come out. But my question is simply that can I keep my old Sky Freeview Dish to watch Sky free and also connect the new HUMAX box to the existing dish or will I need a new dish to connect the Humax box to.
