Humax make good equipment
I have a 9200 (Standard Def, twin tuner) I bought a few years ago after spending a not considerable amount of time reading reviews and I have been delighted with it.
Customer support is great, the box works and works very well, and we are very happy with it. We even managed to get a new remote sent out to us last week as my kids have dropped the original one so many times it becomes a bit hit or miss whether it worked or not. I was half expecting them to say I had to buy a whole new box but no, they shipped out a new remote straight away. Top marks.
My only criticism of the whole system is that the remote has a silly plastic sliding cover which hides the recorded programs list button and the back and forward buttons. These must be the most used items on the remote and I can't understand why they have a cover over them. Thankfully it does come off but then spoils the look of it a bit.
We are still resisting the move up to HD. To us it seems to be quite a considerable amount of money to pay for a TV and new tuner box. And if you don't have an HD tuner then watching SD on a big LCD TV is awful, the picture quality is rubbish, blurred and washed out (I have spent a lot of time at friends houses who have new LCD's and the picture on our CRT is much clearer). So, until our almost brand new 28 inch Sony CRT dies that we bought on Ebay for £25!! or our Hummy dies, we will be sticking with SD for the conceivable future.
Bit of a ramble but I just wanted to post and say how much we like our Hummy.
