HB 1000s review The box is tiny about half the size as the Humax-freesat-foxsat HD box which I also own.Set up is a cinch as usual.At first I thought the picture wasn’t as good as the Humax-freesat-foxsat HD box but after a while I realised it is better. The picture is upscaled to 1080p. I think the HD channels are only broadcast in 1080i. It is a very powerful little box that has no problems doing what it is supposed to do.The freetime is very smooth and slick, but I think there are a few holes in it. Gone is the movie search which was on Humax-freesat-foxsat HD box. Maybe many people didn’t use it but I did, so I miss that. The now and next TV guide is not great and you have to push another button to get to the full TV guide. When in the full TV guide, it tells you what time is left in a program which is currently on but won’t tell you what time that program started at, you have to go back to now and next to find that out. On programs that haven’t started…

Way beyond a basic box! I’m currently running this side by side with the Manhattan HD-S2 which is reviewed elsewhere, here is my take on this mid-budget offering.Size is compact, not much bigger than the Manhattan and much smaller than the old Hummy FOXSAT HD boxes, I bought mine from a bricks and mortar where it was displayed besides the usual range of Freesat boxes, and nowhere did it mention this ones party piece and main selling point, which seems bizarre! Plug in a exteranl USB drive and you activate the video recording/timeshifting/pausing functions, which is fabulous at this price point – I’m not a big recorder of TV, but occasionally miss the late night movie or classic show shown in the early hours, or need to pause live telly, so this is a terrific feature, the drawback is it only has one tuner, so heavy duty recording may be out. But if you’ve also got Freeview through an ariel or only record when you’re out or doing something else, its a great feature. Also, plug in an ethernet cable…
