Humax FOXSAT-HDR Freesat+ PVR Digital Receiver

The Humax FOXSAT-HDR Freesat+ High Definition Receiver is the first Freesat PVR twin tuner 500GB hard drive receiver from Humax, for use on the Freesat satellite television platform.

The sleek black unit with its tinted perspex front panel (slight blue tint), discretely hiding the navigation buttons will suit most modern television set-ups and conceals within the very latest PVR technology with 500GB hard drive, allowing for approx 300 hours of standard-definition recordings; 125 hours in high-definition.

Dual tuners will allow for very similar functionality as Sky+, minus the subscription costs. You will be able to record one channel whilst watching/recording another, or even record two channels whilst playing back a previously recorded programme. Couple this with the Freesat EPG, setting up to record couldn’t be easier.

Note – Don’t forget that you’ll need a twin/quad LNB and two cables from your satellite dish to make full use of the twin tuners; with just a single cable from your satellite dish, you can still use but with limitations on recording.
