Questions & Answers

Features we love


We think this box of tricks is great. But, don’t just take our word for it, check out the awards this clever unit has won from industry experts. Recommendations from AV Forums, Trusted Reviews and What Hi-Fi don’t come lightly so this product really can take a bow!


Setting up is straight forward, simply use the HDMI cable provided to connect to your telly. Older sets are covered too as there’s a SCART output and two USB slots so you can grab content you’ve already got stored on an external hard drive. A great feature is the twin tuner. This lets you record two channels or record one and watch one at the same time. Getting connected to your broadband is also easy, simply plug in an Ethernet cable to your router.

Recording Space

This box has a huge 500GB hard drive so you can record 125 hours of HD content or 300 hours of standard definition telly. That’s over 5 days of back-to-back telly watching! You can also pause and rewind live TV, which is perfect if you’ve missed a goal or just want to see your favourite reality TV star’s fake tan again!

The electronic programme guide (EPG) lets you set reminders and there’s even Smart recording so you can record an entire series. It will also look at timetable clashes and suggest alternative recording times. This avoids rows in your house and gives ITV2+1 a few more viewers! 

Smart Capabilities

If you’re not feeling inspired with your movie collection then you can connect to Panasonic’s cloud service, Viera Connect, to access a variety of online content, whether it’s a documentary on BBC iPlayer or the latest release on Netflix. You can also view your social media accounts, such as Facebook, Twitter and Skype so you won’t miss a beat.

Excellent product

Easy to set up, easy to use and attractive to look at. Thoroughly recommend the product, and AO.

Digital Top Box

The instruction booklet does not answer any of my questions. I'm sorry that I bought it. It is far too complicated and I have to press too many buttons to achieve my objectives. Too clever for its own good. It is so frustrating. The Humax Top Box that I had previously, was much better but it is now obsolete..

great machine

I bought this because I want to kick BT into touch and it does all my bt yourview box does but bitter

great value

Bought this after our old one was zapped by lightning. This new box is much lighter and a lot easier to use.

Humax - Excellent and easy to use

Bought this to take over from our rather old Bush recorder. Gosh what a difference. So easy to set up (I'm not a techie by any means) just follow the instruction manual. Nice small box which fits surreptitiously inside our TV cabinet. Good quality and intuitive remote. Decided to add a Wifi (bought the Edimax which works fine) and we are delighted with the whole thing. Excellent value

Humax Smart Freeview HD recorder

Very pleased with recorder. Easy to install and use, must find out if using a usb stick can copy recordings of programmes to keep. Does anyone know!

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