Jane, Falkirk

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Can watch one channel while recording two others.
Overall very good.
Bad points:
The remote control buttons and screens aren't entirely intuitive - playback is under 'media' for example - which wasn't great for my old mum but you once you've used it it becomes easier. And the picture/sound is intermittent when viewing the programme guide but this is a minor irritation.

Manufacturer's Description

The Humax FOXSAT HDR freesat satellite twin tuner personal video recorder is a new product supporting the BBC and ITV backed ‘freesat’ service. Freesat aims to deliver extra channel choice and High Definition programming – all with no expensive monthly subscription fee.

The Humax FOXSAT HDR has decoding for all existing freesat digital satellite channels (perfect for after the digital switchover), it also has the ability to decode channels transmitted in High Definition and output them via its HDMI connection. With dedicated HD channels already broadcasting from the BBC and ITV (with more set to join) there’s no better time to go ‘HD’. Freesat can also boast perfect reception across the whole of the UK as long as you have a correctly installed dish – perfect for the areas with poor traditional TV reception.

The FOXSAT HDR includes a huge 320GB hard disk drive and twin freesat tuners to allow easy recording of all your favourite standard or high definition programs. With the FOXSAT HDR you can watch one channel whilst you record a second channel or even record two different programmes at once! With the easy to use, full colour on-screen programme guide, favourite channel lists, HDMI connection (with upscaling for standard programming to 1080i or 720p) and a scart output the FOXSAT HDR is the perfect replacement for a Sky Plus box – without any monthly subscription fee at all.
