  • I am delighted, with a little patience it is so easy to use, (I am an ol timer) no messing with video machines manually changing channels on the TV.

What customers say about "Recording And Playback"
Humax HDR-1000S Freesat HD+ 500GB Satellite PVR with Free Time EPG & SD Channels
  • There is a great selection of channels on Free-Sat, enough for me, & for free, as an OAP that'll do me.
  • There is one problem, only minor if I count not being able to watch ITV a minor problem.
  • The only indication that a recording is actually happening is a tiny "REC" symbol on the display which cannot be seen from more than 2 feet away!
  • I only have one little gripe about this box, & that is the start up, it starts every time on the home screen, I find this very annoying
  • The box doesn't cope so smoothly with telling you that two recordings have been scheduled so you have to stop watching a third channel.
Humax HDR-1100S 500 GB Freesat with Freetime HD TV Recorder - Black
  • What a delight it has been, responsive and easy to use. It also works well with their Freesat app.
  • A great piece of kit, I am very satisfied. There are over 100 free channels and overall i'm very happy with Freesat and this Humax box.
  • The Freesat system takes a little getting used to but it's pretty simple in its interface.
  • This box records two programmes simultaneously and, although I haven't yet tried it I believe you can watch a playback programme at the same time as well.
  • The first I saw was faulty from the start with only one ‘channel’ (TV).

What customers say about "Features"
Humax HDR-1000S Freesat HD+ 500GB Satellite PVR with Free Time EPG & SD Channels
  • Very easy to install. I just connected the plug, and the HDmi cable. The auto install doing the rest, with me only having to type in my postcode via remote.
  • The unit itself is a nice quality looking shiny black and it looks nice on the shelf beneath my tv, the remote is also shiny black and looks nice.
  • The channels are easy to set up, the initial set up took about two minutes, and the picture is good quality, you even get a HDMI cable with the unit so you only need to plug and play.
  • We have been very pleased with the product. Following on from a prompt delivery I found it was quite easy to set up.
  • The buttons (8 months after purchase) on the remote are already wearing away.
Humax HDR-1100S 500 GB Freesat with Freetime HD TV Recorder - Black
  • I'am very happy with excellent remote control.
  • I find the remote very nicely designed and fit in my hand snugly, clicking smoothly between channels.
  • We were both amazed at how good the Humax is, easy to set up, easy to use menu/remote, great picture arguably better than the paid option in most cases.
  • The only down-side is the remote makes the most annoying clicking sound when you press the buttons.
  • The remote control is another matter. All the buttons are there, but for me they are not in the most logical place or of appropriate size.

What customers say about "Connectivity"
Humax HDR-1000S Freesat HD+ 500GB Satellite PVR with Free Time EPG & SD Channels
  • I'm happy that I can play my own own files via the front USB port and it happily played my photos and video clips transferred from my PC by pen drive.
  • Great for recording Series etc, (compared to cheaper boxes) Play your films through usb. I would recommend this box to anyone.
  • Very happy with the channel choice and the built in media player so you can play movies from a USB key. Best part is no monthly subscription costs!
  • No built-in Wi-Fi for Free-Time function?!! only Ethernet.
  • I was unable to watch movies from USB or via the DLNA Media server as the box now refuses to recognise the aspect ratio of a wide screen movie so everything appears too tall.
Humax HDR-1100S 500 GB Freesat with Freetime HD TV Recorder - Black
  • The big bonus for me is the wi fi, not having to run cables across the floor.
  • Seriously good picture quality, USB for movies/pictures gain great quality.
  • Absolutely brilliant. It can even plug a usb into the box to play movies. Transfer files, copy, play record, catch up.
  • The USB port is used for input only and only supports a limited range of photos / video /music formats.
  • Accessing the USB stick could be a bit more straightforward though as it is not plainly visible from the main menu.
