Humax HD-Fox T2: in the shops now
Programming is fed to your telly through HDMI - it'll upscale Freeview HD's 720p output to 1080p - though the box also has Scart output if you're still using an old TV - and a second Scart for hooking your VCR. And it has a USB port from which it'll send video, phones and music to the small screen, Humax said
The HD-Fox T2 can also pick up and display standard definition Freeview programmes. ®
Is this price some sort of sick joke?
Someone is having a laugh with this whole Freeview HD debacle
A tad expensive for a freeview box on its own, even if it is HD. Needs to be a PVR with a 500gb or more HD before im interested.
Just for the record
"Just because a Blueray box costs megabucks".
You can buy brand new Blueray players for under £70. I don't consider that to be megabucks. I do however agree with you on the high expense of this HD receiver.
