Suits My Needs
I bought this for using in my kitchen (eg eating breakfast/dinner, where I want to watch the news when dinner is ready, or pausing/rewinding Live TV). It is ok for this, but I would not buy it for my main PVR, due to only having two tuners and a small(ish) hard disk. The EPG is easy to use. A great buy for my purposes.
Humax is great
Bought the Humax as a replacement. Much better quality all round than the previous recorder that I had. Would recommend it to anyone. Very easy to use.
I bought this because my old box was getting a bit slow responding. Got it all set up and was happy at 1st but it soon developed an intermittent sound fault and had to be unplugged and plugged in again to rectify it. I took it back and got a replacement it was obvious someone had taken it back before because security seal as broken but I still set it up and the same thing happened again. I am sure there is some sort of fault on these boxes. Will not be trying for 3rd time lucky
Yes, internet connectivity is required to use the full range of features.
Features that require this include , Freeview channels delivered over internet, access to apps and access to catch up services.
Some features however can still be used. (Freeview Tuner, EPG and onDisk OTA Broadcast time shifting)

Hello Sarah, thank you for your question. I can confirm that the Humax HDR-1800T 320GB Freeview+ HD Smart Digital TV Recorder has a Scart port for connecting to your TV and an aerial port for your aerial to plug into. Thank you for using Argos Q&A.

Yes it has a scart connection but you won’t get benefits of the HD channels without connecting it with an HDMI cable
