Freeview + HD Digital TV recorder
This product will require an aerial to receive Freeview channels (this is not a satellite product)
The Humax HDR-2000T is a feature-packed, Freeview+HD digital TV recorder, bursting with recording, multimedia, home-networking and on-demand services for the ultimate subscription-free TV experience. Simply plug the HDR-2000T into your HD-ready TV to enjoy high definition (HD) content, as well as access to up to 50 Freeview standard definition TV channels & 24 radio channels.
Amazing high definition viewing
Connect the HDR-2000T to your HD-ready TV to upscale to full 1080p HD and enjoy the intense images and vibrant colours of HD channels from the BBC, ITV, C4 and S4C, all subscription-free. The box will also upscale standard definition programs, making sure every image looks as fantastic as possible. Sound is also crystal clear as the HDR-2000T boasts Dolby Digital Pulse Audio Output for an unrivalled, all-round viewing experience from the comfort of your sofa!
Huge recording capacity
Boasting a massive 500GB hard drive, the HDR-2000T can store up to 125 hours of HD programming or up to 300 hours of standard definition shows.
Twin tuners for simultaneous recording
Avoid arguments over missing a show, as the twin tuners mean you can watch one programme while recording another channel at the same time. You can even record two Freeview channels simultaneously if you are watching a recording from the hard drive.
The Humax HDR-2000T is packed with smart recording features to give you complete control over everything you want to watch:
The phone rings during the last ten minutes of a show, but don't panic! Pause a live show to pick up a call or answer the door, then simply carry on from where you left off
Missed that crucial goal or a scene in a movie? Simply rewind live TV to replay the action
Now you can record an entire series at the touch of a button. When you select a show for recording, series recording will give you the option to record the whole series, so all the episodes of your favourite show will be saved automatically
There's no need to wait until the programme you are recording has finished before you can start to watch it. With chase play you can start watching from the beginning even while the rest of the programme is being recorded
There's no need to worry about missing a recording if the programme schedule changes, like a football match going into extra time or a breaking news flash. Schedule tracking starts recording your programme only when it starts being broadcast, so your recordings are always accurate
Have you ever been annoyed that you've recorded a film only to find the recording has stopped when a news break kicks in? Split recording lets you record two-part programmes with a break in the middle, so you don't miss the second half
Alerts you in an instant if a clash occurs when you try to record a programme and suggests an alternative time to catch the show if it's repeated or being shown on another channel
If you are viewing a programme in standard definition or set a programme to record, and the same programme is available in High Definition you will be given the option to view or record in HD.
When setting a recording, the broadcaster may suggest a similar programme that you might want to record
Green Button (also known as Trailer Booking)
Allows you to schedule a programme to record during a trailer (or preview) of a programme without having to search through the programme Guide. A Book me? prompt will appear on screen and when the green button is pressed you can set the programme to record.
Note: The above Freeview+ HD features are available on channels where the correct and accurate data is being broadcast. Some channels may not support all of the Freeview+ HD services.

We now have several videos online that describe the features of our products and how to use them.
I have had the 2000T for about 3-4 months now to replace my PS3 + PlayTV. It is a great box. <br/><br/>Good points - You can record a whole series. Unlike PlayTV, the system has some intelligence and it can pick up if the schedule has changed.<br/><br/>The EPG is very clean and simple to use. <br/><br/>Picture Quality is excellent<br/><br/>Downsides - Apps are very limited; It doesn't stream anything but the most basic video (forget MP4/MKV/HD Audio bit streaming); sometimes can't channel up while recording
I've owned previous Humax models and this box is generally up to their usual great standards. I particularly like the TV Portal for iPlayer, but they could do with adding the other main channels.<br/><br/>My one gripe with this box is that they seem to have used cheaper tuners and I get occasional picture freeze on SD channels and HD is unusable (in my area). I've had no such issues with previous models.<br/><br/>Humax support were great and sent me a new box, but it suffered from the same issues.
A high quality excellent machine in all respects, except for two problems; 1. BBC iplayer cannot be smoothly advanced or rewound; instead, it jumps in large steps which becomes a big handicap when watching a program. 2. Some YouTube videos will not play due to an unsupported format of some sort? When contacted, Humax have said that they are not in a position to fix these problems; this is a great pity since both Internet Portals are excellently constructed with very clear and easy to use format
