Jenny, Walsall Over 50 female

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
It has most of the functions of the Sky box it replaced- recording two programmes at once, pause live TV, fast forward (to miss adverts), rewind for those bits you missed, forward scheduling etc. but without the ongoing subscription cost of access to channels I don't watch.
Great feature: It tells you automatically when there are alternative scheduling times if there is a clash.

I have found it fairly intuitive to use.
Bad points:
I have not had the system very long, but I have not yet found a feature that lets me move forward through the schedule by units of e.g. 24 hours so setting things to recording for up to a week in advance is quite time consuming.

The sound via the Humax is a lot quieter than on the TV so when it comes on as TV the sound is deafening before it finds the Humax but there may be a solution I am unaware of yet.

Marjorie, Newcastle on Tyne I always compare prices.

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Some good new features since my first Humax.
I particularly enjoy telling it to record the whole series, and the fact I now have HD viewing.
Bad points:
I find it hard to read the white print of the programme notes when in Guide.

Dennis, Horncastle, Lincs the user/owner of this

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
it's a good price and a nice ergonomic handset.
Bad points:
My Father..who is 91... finds it difficult to pause live or recorded progs. I'm not sure either as it seems to jump to live rather than picking up where it left off. this is using the pause/play button as per the manual.
