Humax HDR 100S I'm very pleased with this, good quality ad ease of use, glad I paid a bit more for the quality. 25 June 2014
Humax HDR-1000s freestst+ HD Digital TV Recorder Easy to set up and use. Unfortunately in the info I did not see anything about the need for a second feed from satellite dish which is needed for recording and playback at same time and changing channels while a recording is in progress 25 June 2014

Best DVR I am very happy with my new purchase ,ie it was easy to set up, & programe to record what i want ,& freetime catch up is also great when you connect it to your broadband far i`m very happy 18 June 2014
Works with single sat cable Using with old free Sky dish with single cable connected to old TV via SCART lead (not supplied) without internet. Works well but obviously cannot use all features. Can pause live TV (up to 2 hrs) and record one prog at a time, and also watch recorded prog while another recording or watch TV in same group of channels while one recording. Instructions assume 2 sat cables and internet, but when connected with just one it all worked straight away on wizard by selecting right line source on TV. 10 June 2014

Currently I have my TV, Sky + box & DVD/HDD recorder all linked together in a loop; I play back a Sky + recording on my TV, then record onto DVD/HDD, edit (remove adverts, etc. if necessary), then transfer to disc to watch on my lorry's DVD player .
Can I replicate this procedure with the Humax box, instead of Sky+?

From sky to freesat

4 weeks ago
I am planning to go from Sky to freesat. As I have the sky dish already installed, is it a simple job to convert? Any known problems?

You should be able to insert your satellite cable, which would have plugged into your Sky box, into the back of this Freesat box.
