    Humax Freesat Recorder

    Hello folks, I'm thinking about changing to Freesat as the aerial reception is getting pretty dire where I live. The only thing that is stopping me is the fact there do not seem to be any Human recorders out there. Have looked at the Freesat recorder on offer at Currys but the reviews are so bad...

    How many channels at a time?

    I generally record 2 on the hummy, which is tuned to my av channel, while watching third on the TV sets tuner. You should give it a try.

    will freesat & free view work together?

    That's a"yes" then is it. Great stuff, not knowing anything about this kind of thing I wanted to make sure before buying dish/box etc. Cheers

    will freesat & free view work together?

    Sorry - I thought it was just me that asked silly questions. I have no thoughts or specialised knowledge either way. That's why I'm here asking the question. If someone could let me know……..

    will freesat & free view work together?

    Once again hot weather is here and causing our free view signal to collapse every evening. If I get a Hummy 1010S and a dish I will be able to receive satellite signals which should cure the problem. I see no reason to bin my 9200 free view box though. Will they both continue to function...

    See what you mean - totally incomprehensible techie stuff - better stick with the basics. Cheers

    Lost Last Few Minutes of Recordings

    Cheers for that. I'll do it later on & let you know. Didn't realise consecutive recording knocked off the padding. Had a look at the FoxHDR T2 yesterday, supposed to be better and the guy in the shop says you can plug in a USB to take off recording to save, or play back stuff stored on it. It's...

    Manual Retune

    Have a 9200 that appears to be going home. Thanks to Big Les I have manually retuned it several times. Can I do this with the fox t2?

    Lost Last Few Minutes of Recordings

    Update: it recorded onthe buses OK but lopped off the padded time at the end - did not record G&M, which was the nxt up on same channel because it "conflicted with other reservations". Recorded top gear but stopped it before end. Nothing else recording at that time. Put simply it is just...

    Lost Last Few Minutes of Recordings

    Yes it's a 9200 Software 1.00.23. The 2 programmes were consecutive 1hr shows on BBC2 8pm-9pm & 9pm-10pm. At the same time BBC1 9pm - 10.30pm (no probs there). Of course i didn't mean sky in my earlier post I meant Hummy Freesat. Am definitely not getting signals from more than one transmitter...

    It does not record what it is supposed to. It is set to start 1 min early and end 3 mins later. Whether the programme overruns I wouldn't know since, obviously, I am not watching it. Using the series link it invariably misses either beginning or ending and also records repeats of stuff it has...

    Mine has been doing this very frequently even though it has been set to go 3 minutes after the end of each programme. It is most often on BBC2

    HDR FOX T2 usb

    Many thanks for that. Looking on Amazon I see they also do a 'dongle' that can pick up stuff off the wi-fi as well. Brilliant, will be upgrading from my 51/2 yr old 9200. Strange thing is that Humax themselves don't explain this stuff anywhere, they would sell tons more if they did. I am a big...

    HDR FOX T2 usb

    Am thinking of upgrading my 5 yr old 9200 & looking at the humax site I see a 160gb usb - fujitsu xena advertised as an accessory to the HDR fox freeview box. No other info so I'm wondering - (a) Can I record stuff off the tummy onto the usb to play back later in order to save space? (b) Can I...
