Not sure when it was released but I ordered the new Humax PVR-9200t as soon as I saw it was available. Now, I’ve been really impressed with my 8000t and looking forward to this new version but I have to say there are good things and bad things. I wont bother with quoting standard features as good things, just additionals that I/you wouldn’t necessarily know.
Firstly the good things –
- EPG Guide now displays the currently watched program in preview picture (PIP kinda thing) with the audio
- The display on the front of new box displays the currently viewed channel name rather than number, simple but very nice
Next the bad things –
- The new remote is bulky and is cheap plastic
- The new remote doesn’t control your TV anymore
There doesn’t appear to be a quick way to get to the recorded programs list now, there used to be an eject button, not anymore UPDATE: Found this now. Under the flap of the remote there is a button that resembles a list which actually takes you to the recorded programes list.. very unintuitive, but at least it’s there.
More to follow I suspect but I haven’t had a full play with it yet.
One last thing… I’ve now got about 60GB of programmes on my 8000t with no apparent way of getting it onto my 9200t, bummer 😦
