Humax Freesat PVR has some serious failings (my opinion)
According to the latest reports on the Humax PVR box (rumoured to be due November) the PVR is not going to be able to record anything other than Freesat. I see this as a serious failing.
Having to buy this then yet another PVR for Freeview because it won’t record a Freeview input from a set top box or integrated tv is ridiculous. I can understand the lack of a Freeview decoder but no record input?
Thats £300 for this (rumoured price), then another £150 for another PVR to cover its inability to record Freeview, and finishing up with 2 boxes instead of one on the tv stand cluttering the place up.
Simply not a worthwhile option in my opinion.
Why would you buy something that integrates the PVR only to then have to buy another seperate PVR for everything else anyway?
Might as well get a ordinary Freesat decoder, and then wait on and buy a seperate PVR that records everything and save £150. Poor economic and practicable sense in my opinion.
What do you think?
