Humax HDR T2

Tue, 08 Feb 2011

I bought a Hummy PVR late last year principally to get HD reception. Of course HD isn't quite available in my area (strength of crystal palace transmitter just too weak) so just got to wait until april. However the PVR itself is a dramatic upgrade on the previous version. HDMI naturally, but now there is a LAN connection; ok, no wifi, but their generally poor. ethernet over power cables is much better. The already good interface is much better and, with the latest firmware internet tv has arrived. Ok its a bit clunky and slow in parts but it is still noted as beta. BBC iPlayer playback is smooth though. An ftp server has now been added which is handy for moving content around, although DRM is on the recorded content.

Everyone talks about the media centre pc taking on the living room, but I can't help but think that the PVR has already won the battle.
