Humax HDR-2000T Freeview HD Digital TV Recorder. 4.3 5 46 46
Humax HDR-2000 T Freeview HD Digital Easy to set up and use. 22 April 2014
Does what it says on the tin!! Found it very easy to use 06 April 2014
Humax do it again: an outstanding product! We purchased this PVR for my 85 year old mother in-law who had previously struggled with a PVR from Sharp. The Humax unit has an extremely clear and simple EPG and getting to your recordings is also very easy as programmes are organised in "folders", making it easy to find what you're looking for. Image quality is also superb and the unit upscales to 1080p HD. The remote control can be programmed to control the TV as well. Overall, a brilliant product. 03 April 2014
Shop at ARGOS The HDR-2000 T, has every thing you would want from a PVR. Excellent picture, excellent guide which populates very quickly. The controls are simple enough IF you read the instructions. One problem is the aerial does not pass through the 2000t unless it is switched on and not in the standby state. Shop at Argos because my first 2000-t had a timing fault and there was absolutely no problem with getting an immediate replacement. 28 March 2014
Easy to use Digital TV Recorder Comes with clear instructions so simple to connect and set up. Recording a programme couldn't be easier, simply select the show in the guide and press record. You have the option to record one episode or the whole series. Usefully in the playback mode, you can stop watching a recording and then go back to it with the option to resume from where you left off. An excellent product. 19 March 2014
Humax 2000T Brought to replace unresponsive Sagemcom unit. Excellent customer service from Argos. Humax does what it claims and more. Easy to use, set up. Huge storage capacity. HD clarity the best. 11 March 2014
My first choice for PVR's I had a Humax years ago which served me very well for years. Recently I was asked by my elderly parents to recommend a PVR for them, and I went straight away for this model. I can only say the Humax quality has got even better. Great remote, very easy to use, great set up, super easy to follow the on-screen process, and a simple to follow EPG. My 80 year old dad, took to it straight away. 09 March 2014
this product has excellent features good value Lovely pictures specially hd only fault needed retuning to get some of the channels.Had humax previously and had no problems with this on to find channels. 05 March 2014
Health warning Bought this to use over Christmas. Could not get it to work on any television in our house. Searched for solutions on the Internet, rang the Humax helpdesk and tried everything. In the end, it had to go back to avoid a divorce..... 28 February 2014
Humax HDR - 2000T freeview This Humax is so simple and a delight to use. Easy programming to record & brilliant picture quality in full HD as well. Easy to play your recorded TV via the easy to use remote control. A top quality product that really is good value for money. Don't buy second best buy Humax then put your feet up and enjoy ! 25 February 2014
Humax HDR - 2000T 500gb Freeview HD Recorder Excellent product, very easy to install and use. 29 January 2014
excellent product. easy set up. performs well. brings a new meaning to TV pictures. 28 January 2014
I am pleased with the product and given relative short time I have had it am finding it quite easy to operate. 28 January 2014
sound drop out so bad also no sound when you start up 23 January 2014
Humax HDR-2000T This is the second Humax that I have had. This one was bought to replace the 9200T. Failed hard drive after many years of exemplary service. This model has many advanced features, like HD and the ability to be connected to the internet, this I have not tried. I have watched photos from my camera by using the USB front port. The Humax was very easy set up and I would recommend it as the best PVR for older people with the advanced features for more internet knowledgeable costumers. 22 January 2014
poor receiver sensitivy = poor performance My existing PVR (Topfield) gave >90% signal strength indication, yet the directly-substituted Humax reported 30%-40%. This lead to picture dropout when it rained whereas the Topfield suffered from no such problem. I gave up and I might try again once any firmware upgrades have occurred or an improved tuner noise figure is achieved on later issues. The network connectivity was very good and the responsiveness of the unit to remote control commands was adequate (a bit sluggish but OK). 15 January 2014
humax freeview box This replaced a goodmans freeviw box which was absolutely rubbish. However, the humax box is in my opinion first class, very user friendly. Unlike the goodmans box, the humax box has not let us down, it records when it should and deleting is not a nightmare. A freeview box that finally does what it says on the box! I am so impressed with the humax that I would not hesitate to buy another. 14 January 2014
Really Good RECOMMEND EVERYONE TO BUY ONE It's really good especially with HD two it's a shame it not got WiFi built in but I got my ps3 to do that ....... The product is different from picture but The HD pic is fantastic, the tv guide is superb it can search what films are on that week and set it to record. You can record two channels at the same time. FORGET YOUVIEW if you got a PS3/4 It can do that already and the ps3/4 is WiFi built in. I WILL RECOMMEND EVERYONE TO BY ONE :) 14 January 2014
great product Easy to set up and use. Good picture quality of recordings and would recommend to anybody. very satisfied. 10 January 2014
keeps crashing! Keeps crashing, often halfway through recording. Have too switch off at the mains. Also search functionality more limited than much cheaper box we had before. 09 January 2014

The TV guide

4 weeks ago
The TV guide is not very bright especially the programme times. Can it be adjusted and made more bold and easier to read? Also why does it not switch on when it is recording?

Hi Twig,

There is no specific way to change the EPG guide on this TV recorder, you can however change the brightness on your TV which may help.

Can recorded content be moved over to an external HDD in order to back it up or just to free up space on the internal hard drive, and still be able to watch these recordings through the External HDD when connected to the same device they were recorded from?

All recordings can be copied to external media via USB and played from the external media.
