About this deal

I am seriously considering taking it back as I am so fed up of waiting for the update software which they keep promising and not being able to provide a date for when they are being broadcasted. They mention that it freezes constantly, does not keep recorded, and the screen break up when playing back a recorded. Also compared to another box I've got with better 'Accurate Recording' I prefer the Humax as at least it has always recorded something as opposed to forgetting to record at all. We don't as a general policy investigate the solvency of companies mentioned (how likely they are to go bust), but there is a risk any company can struggle and it's rarely made public until it's too late (see the Section 75 guide for protection tips).

Of course, selecting programmes from the guide depends on the Freeview guide being correct, which it generally is. However, the 9150 does also let you watch a selection of channels if you are recording two other channels at the same time.If it is turned on I must be lucky as a noticeable delay in start time only happens to me occasionally. If you have HDMI, I would recommend visiting the Humax refurbished site and choosing another device, or going with previous suggestions from Tesco.

EDIT: - audio out into my AV amp, thinking about it I have optical digital out from the sagem, haven't spotted if there's a digital audio out on the hummy, TBH it slipped my mind. But my TV tuning is not affected - whether I go through the box or connect the aerial cable directly to the TV, it still picks up Freeview just fine. I appreciate this may not be the correct forum for raising this question so if that is the case please could someone redirect me. The layout of the otherwise excellent Remote control is spoilt by the microscopic legends for the buttons under the sliding cover.but I found a few things annoying : you could only switch to a channel if the programme you've highlighted is currently on. Or take the hard disk out, put it in a windows computer, find special software and instructions on the internet to repair the index. You can pause live telly so say you want to make a cuppa you press pause, come back in say 10 minutes and press play to resume the recorded live telly so you didnt miss a bit of it. The weekday episodes are mostly fine but the 8 they recorded over the weekend are terrible, sound goes out of sync, the recording jumps two minutes out of every five and it stutters. For example, they mention that it works well, provides the essential function of being able to record on one, and is excellent.
