Packing Freeview+ along with BBC iPlayer, this PVR looks like a strong contender
The Humax HDR-FOX T2 is the brand’s latest PVR, enabling you to enjoy subscription-free HD broadcasts while its Freeview+ credentials mean that you can pause and rewind live TV, or set the box to record an entire TV series for you.
plenty going on
From a quick glance at the HDR-FOX T2’s minimalist front panel, you might think it’s a simple device. You couldn’t be more wrong. A 500GB drive takes care of your recordings from twin tuners, or if you prefer you can watch iPlayer, stream from a PC, NAS or USB device, or view subscription services.
As well as its many other talents, the HDR-FOX T2 can also chat to other Humax PVRs, sharing and borrowing recordings over Ethernet for a simple multi-room video setup.
From the moment you press the pleasantly oversized 'on' switch, you know everything is going to be fine. There's a comprehensive set-up routine, magnificent on-screen display, crisp imagery, responsive remote and a wealth of features. The Humax looks the business and does it too. A lack of through ports is the only real omission, but it’s not a fatal flaw.
