Humax DTR-T100 YouView PVR review
YouView is one of the most exciting things to happen to television this year, making online, on demand services available to all and finally putting everyone in control of what they want to watch.
Humax YouView PVR
And the best way to get YouView is with Humax’s DTR-T100 set-top box.
If you haven’t come across YouView before, it’s because this is a collaborative project by terrestrial broadcasters to bring the best of their online services straight to your television at no extra charge. Essentially, it’s Freeview, but for internet TV.
With the Humax PVR, you have the best of both worlds. Plug your standard aerial in for access to all 50 Freeview HD channels, and attach an ethernet cable to your home network to get 70 more online and on demand channels.
And because that’s all going to be way too much choice for you, you’ll also be wanting to make use of the built-in PVR for recording scheduled shows, time shifting and storing programmes for later on the 500GB hard drive.
The DRT-T100 is adaptable too – around the back there’s a range of ports for every occasion including HDMI, SCART optical audio and more. It will upscale standard definition feeds to high definition for you too.
Best of all, is the fact that despite its enormous capabilities, Humax’s YouView PVR is no more complex to set up and use than any other set-top box. It’s electronic programme guide is one of the best designed there is, and makes finding catch-up shows simple without switching between menus from the regular channel guide.
It’s fast, responsive and once you’ve bought the box, has an ever expanding range of entertainment for free.
YouView is the future of Freeview, and the DRT-T100 is the best way to get it.
