    Freesat:- slow on EPG ( unless you press extra buttons all the time), .....

    Sounds like you are referring to a Generation 1 unit such as the Foxsat rather than the current G2 units by Humax such as the HDR-1xx0 series of units?

    Belay that comment I have just remembered I did buy one of these units about 1 1/2 years ago. It played up & the picture was all green. I sent it back to Humax for a refund. Stuck with the foxsat at the time & still use it.

    Sounds like that was just an iffy F-connector issue rather than a fault with the Freesat box. I experienced exactly the same issue with mine when I first connected it. I re-made the F-connectors and five years later it's still playing a starring role in my recording regime.

    No, definately faulty. Checked everything, all leads etc. Plugged in the foxsat & everything worked.

    The 1000S series got off to a rocky start with a buggy, badly designed and implemented GUI. However, while still not a work of art it is robust and does everything it says on the can. Picture is superb. I now have 1 x HDR and 3 x HB. No going back.

    If you say so. You could do worse than to take note of what other posters say about the G2 Freesat boxes though. They are the Challenger 2 tanks of the PVR world - IMO.
