Humax Freesat Foxsat-HDR recorder announced

Humax has announced the launch of the Freesat+ Foxsat-HDR that will go on sale in the UK in November and will feature new Freeview+ type abilities.

Humax says when launched, the twin tuner Humax Foxsat-HDR will be the only way to pause, rewind and record Freesat HD digital TV, as well as access SD TV, radio and interactive channels.

The PVR has a 320GB hard drive that can store up to 80 hours of HD programming, or up to 200 hours of standard definition shows, while the 8-day on-screen electronic programme guide claims to make it easy to scan the Freesat TV schedule and plan your viewing.

The twin tuners means you can record two Freesat channels at the same time, while there's also series recording, radio recording, schedule tracking, split recording and the ability to "live pause" with instant rewind.

Other features include advanced digital text and interactive services, HDMI connectivty, parental controls, Dolby digital output and two SCART sockets.

Compete with remote control, the Freesat+ Foxsat-HDR will be available to buy from UK retailers from mid-November 2008, priced at around £299. Satellite installation is not included.
