Freeview HD : Humax Set Top Boxes

Ok so we said before about Freeview HD, when it was coming etc. Now Some masts are pumping out the signal, why aren’t there any set top boxes out there to pick this free HD signal up. Well I can’t personally explain that but what I can say is that the first set top boxes are outed and will be released next year.   Humax HD-FOX T2 should be out in Q1  next year. Firstly it’ll tune its self with its auto-tune facility, it’ll quite gladly receive the 720p yes that’s right 720p signal(not too futuristic yet) but this box will upscale to 1080p at 50Hz. It will play media from a USB drive or HDD. We don’t have the full details on file format support but one clever thing is you can record onto a USB drive to save buying the full PVR.   If you’re after a PVR version then the DVB-T2 HD has a 500GB HDD inside to store your favourite shows in HD and SD.

One of the reasons I didn’t try out Freesat was the lack of recording so I think I could be swayed to trying out one of these new boxes in the near future. Full specification continued. *320GB hard drive to store up to 80 hours of HD programming, or up to 200 hours of standard definition shows *Eight day electronic programme guide to plan your viewing and recording with ease *Series recording to automatically capture all the episodes of your favourite shows *Live pause and instant rewind to give you full control over your viewing *Option to record programmes in standard and high-definition when shows are broadcast in both formats *Split recordings for two-part...
