Humax HB-1000S Freesat HD Freetime Digital Box The Humax HB-1000S Freesat HD Freetime Digital Box is the first single-tuner Freesat HD receiver to include the next generation <free time> technology; providing high quality access to over 150 free television and radio channels, plus access programmes through interactive and on-demand services, as well as record to external USB hard drive and use as a client to stream from your home server. This <free time> receiver is available from Satbuyer, an authorised Humax partner.

The <free time> technology within this Freesat HD receiver will take digital television viewing to a new level, offering much more than just watching your favourite television and radio channels. Features include access to all the interactive services including on demand from BBC iPlayer, ITV Player, 4oD and Demand5, with <free time> EPG intergration allowing access to programmes missed in the last 7 days, a showcase feature and much more. NB - some of the new functionality including access to on-demand services and EPG rollback will require a broadband connection (uk ip) with a minimum speed of 2mbps (Ethernet connection required, or optional Humax USB WLAN adapter or homeplugs).

Humax HB-1000S Freesat HD Freetime Digital Box As the HB-1000S doesn't have a built in hard drive, you can record via the single tuner to an external USB hard drive (minimum 60GB and must be formatted solely for use with the HB-1000S - for broadcast copyright protection). You can also stream video, music and photos (subject to format) from your home network. An added feature due for launch in the future (tbc) will be the ability to use the HDR-1000S as a server and access recordings via this digital box; making it a perfect multiroom entertainment system. The Freesat platform uses the same satellite setup as BSkyB, so if you already have this in place and working, you'll just need to purchase the Freesat Digital Box of choice, plug in and enjoy!

brilliant ,easy to set up had a small problem with subtitles to begin with they didn't appear when switching on the unit after they had been switched on but performed a factory re-set and that sorted the problem . am waiting for a external hard drive to arrive, to reap the full benefits. getting the various I players is dead simple ,so over all nice bit of kit I would highly recommend it ,and the fact its a 12 volt unit is even better

Received on launch day from satbuyer as promised. Really happy with it, nice addition to my current hdr1000s and look forward to a future link up between them. Got it working with my external drive so can record the channel im watching, though obviously isn't the full fat version like the hdr. Box is tiny, much smaller than I thought and well packaged.
