Brilliant! I’ve had mine just over a week now and I have to say I’m impressed with it so far. I’ve been using my Sky HD box for Freesat since canceling my Sky subscription a couple of months back but obviously haven’t been able to record, pause or rewind! This Humax box allows me to do that as well as a few other features which are new to the next generation of Freesat boxes.The EPG is visually very pleasant and is similar to the SKY HD box in layout although it simply lists what’s on now and next rather than showing you further in to the future. To view programs occuring later in the day you have to scroll across. To view channel types you press the List button on the remote which then gives you the common options such as Movies and Entertainment. If you select BBC1 or ITV on the EPG you can press back on the remote control and view programs available via the catch up services. This is a really useful feature although it will improve later in the year when the Channel 4 and Channel…

Brilliant alternative to SKY The savings of years Sky Subscription more than covers the cost of this box. I now have a great range of programmes and have no monthly subscription.INSTALLATONThere was a Sky Dish present when we moved in and we have had a Sky + SD package for over 2 years now and very rarely have we lost signal. In my mind that meant the Dish worked correctly and was aligned properly although there are loads of mobile apps that assist you in realigning your dish. Obviously installing and aligning a dish requires more expense, work and tools – notably a ladderI unplugged the Sky box and plugged in the FreeSat box- Sat Input #1- Sat Input #2- HDMI cable to the telly- Ethernet cable to the router- Power cableThe sat inputs are a little fiddly and you have to be very careful with the centre wire on the connector but apart from that it was one of the easiest set ups I have done.TUNINGSet the TV input to accept HDMI…

Finally this seems to be the business Just got this after having a diabolical Goodmans freesat HD pvr for the last year, and having tesco Technika freeview TVs with their poor EPG’s that are hard to read. This box is the business – lovely sleek looking unit, pin sharp picture, very nice electronic programme guide (EPG), which is well integrated with available on-demand content.I’ve read the youview box versus freetime box comparisons and though the on-demand content is limited, that’s not a huge issue for me – I’m not bothered about having Netflix and sky channels. I left sky for freesat HD because I didn’t want to be paying big subscriptions for watching TV, when (as I suspect a majority of people do), I come home from work and wind up watching master chef of grand designs or midsomer murders and the news most of the time anyway. I just wanted a reliable hd box with good picture, recording facilities and iplayer and other free catchup services. This seems to be it (I’ve only had it a few days), and I’d recommend it…
