Humax has announced details of its new HDR-Fox T2 Freeview HD recorder, with the launch date set rather foolishly after the World Cup. Doh!
The HDR-FOX T2 offers just a 500GB hard drive – something we’d imagine will fill up pretty sharpish with all those lovely HD recordings – plus an eight-day EPG, series recording, schedule tracking and split recording.
The player also comes with Ethernet connectivity and photo and MP3 playback via a built-in USB port.
“Humax was first to market with a Freeview HD receiver, the HD-FOX T2, allowing users to access outstanding HD content through their rooftop aerial for the very first time, purred Humax’s Graham North.
“The forthcoming HDR-FOX T2 continues our reputation for delivering easy-to-use, high-quality products, with a feature-packed digital TV recorder that is set to provide the very best in recording and viewing features for Freeview HD+.”
The HDR-Fox T2 Freeview HD is set to be out straight after the World Cup in July, and priced around £349.
Although the specs look lovely enough, we’d have immense trouble recommending any Humax products at the moment.
Like a lot of other thoroughly pissed off users, our Humax boxes have become near unusable, and despite endless complaints and constant promises of a fix “coming soon” from the company, nothing seems to materialise.
Of course, these new boxes may work perfectly well, but we’ll carry on nagging them and demanding they sort out problems with their current range – and until such a time that a satisfactory fix has been released, we’re continue to remind readers about their awful track record.
