The Herald


• "It starts up quickly - several times faster. Next, the on-screen menus are simpler and more responsive, with straightforward buttons on the remote to skip between functions.
• "The electronic programme guide works well, allowing a series to be recorded at the touch of a button…"
• "Picture quality is excellent, both on HD channels and on standard definition, where the box does a good job of upscaling the picture to high-def over an HDMI cable."
• There's a great media player app that automatically finds photos and videos on other computers within a home network... The box does the same trick with USB memory sticks and external hard drives, making it a versatile media hub




• "Menus are well planned and easy to navigate"
• "This is the first Freeview HD PVR to provide access to their new App store. For an emerging platform the range of apps and services is not bad and includes BBC iPlayer, YouTube, Wikipedia and Twitter amongst the highlights"
• "And what an excellent PVR it is."
• "All in all, the HDR-2000T stands up as proof that Humax has been producing quality Freeview recorders for years and it's a device that will keep experienced users just as happy as first-time PVR buyers"
