Thoughts on Humax HDR Fox T2 After Couple of Months
Hello, just thought I'd offer some further feedback on this after a cople of months of ownership.
Still finding the picture and sound great. Had no issues with any recordings or scheduling. However, one bad point is that whenever there is a retune all the scheduled recordings are lost. Not a nightmare, but inconvenient and doesn't happen on my (non HD) Sagem.
Another minor niggle, when in standby it's hard to tell if the box is recording or not. The ring around the power button isn't obviously red like it is wehn it's on and recording, and I have to go close to it to see on the LCD if the little 'REC' sign is on. Again, not a nightmare, but could be better.
Finally streaming from a DLNA NAS has been fine, except with 24P AVIs. The Humax is sending 50 FPS to the TV, and I'm not sure what it does but it sometimes seems to result in some juddery playback. My Samsung BluRay player gets the rate of the files right and sends 24 FPS to the TV.
Overall I'm very happy with it and glad I bought it, but thought I'd feedback on the above and hope it's useful. It's not information I'd seen prior to buying the box. All thre above are with a very recent firmware but not sure of the number.
