Easy to use and feature-packed PVR box

The Humax FVP-4000T is a 500GB Freeview Play PVR set top box that allows you to view and record HD TV using a Freeview aerial signal. We chose the Mocha colour which has a black & silver front and a mocha coloured faux leather top. There are some physical buttons on the top of the box that give you basic control, and an LED at the front indicates if the box is on. The box itself looks great on the shelf - really smart and simple. Included with the set top box is the power adaptor, remote control & batteries, quick start guide, manual, HDMI cable, aerial cable and Ethernet cable. The PVR is network connected with the option to hook it up with an Ethernet cable or wifi. The internet features include video on demand from iPlayer, ITV Player, All 4 and Demand 5, as well as Netflix and a whole range of Humax apps including YouTube & BBC News. You can also access media from media servers on your local network - we have a DLNA server running so this is really useful for us. The remote control is easy to use and well laid out, with dedicated Netflix and On Demand buttons. You can put a code in to control your TV on/off which is always handy - the info and codes are all in the manual. It would be an improvement if it included TV source and volume buttons too, but you can control the box volume which is something. The box has 3 tuners which allows you to record 4 programmes at once whilst watching a 5th one. I've never had quite so much flexibility in a PVR before and it certainly helps during prime time periods. You can also record, pause and rewind live TV. Set up was really simple, I hooked up the box to aerial, HDMI & network then switched it on. The set up wizard was easy to complete and it went straight into an auto update. As I used the box, each section had a short guide on how it worked, which was really helpful. The user interface is really intuitive and easy to use. 7 day catchup on the to guide is really useful; you can browse back a week and watch tv shows available on demand directly from there. You can skip directly to a particular day in the future or past, up to a week in either direction. Overall we are really pleased and impressed by the Humax box. It is very easy to use and packed with features, allowing to access a huge amount of free on demand content, as well as 12+ HD channels, 60+ TV channels, and 25+ radio stations. The price of this box is reasonable, as you don't have to pay a television subscription service - apart from Netflix, if you use that. Over several months this can be a significant saving on your TV bill. 5 stars for this feature-packed Humax Freeview Play box.

Pros: Ease to use, Good build quality, Looks good, Quiet

Video review


This is a BEAST of a machine! I am totally thrilled with it, I did a lot of umming and arring before biting the bullet and purchasing it, SOOO glad I did! Really easy to set-up and simple to use and I'm a 70 something chick! It can record FOUR channels at once and then you can still watch ANOTHER one! Don't hesitate - buy it now!!

Pros: Ease to use, Good build quality, Looks good, Quiet, Value for money Cons: None

Brilliant bit of kit!

Very functional and easy to use. Intuitive menus and brilliant 4 channel recording capability. Love it.

Pros: Ease to use, Good build quality, Looks good, Quiet, Value for money

Mostly ok

Got to replace an older model that had developed hard disk problems. Unfortunately the user interface is much more complicated and ultimately much clumsier. For instance the genre search is limited to one day even though the guide runs for two weeks ahead. If for example you want to look ahead for films to record you have to do it channel by channel and day by day. It is dreadfully long winded. The old version was so much simpler and better. If I'd known this in advance I really wouldnt have bought it.

Pros: Quiet Cons: Complicated

Unintuitive and slow user interface

The user interface is slower than the 6 year old BT Vision STB that I bought this product to replace. The user interface is pretty uninuitive, clunky and the lack of a properly visible LED on the front panel highly annoying. The internal HDD also makes a lot of vibration noise, even sometimes when the STB is supposed to be in standby mode. Not really worth the premium price tag.

Cons: Expensive, Noisy, Slow, Unituitive

Great piece of kit

Bought this when I'd had enough of Sky. Easy to use and set up.

Pros: Ease to use, Good build quality, Looks good, Quiet, Value for money Cons: None
