    Hi
    Look here
    The Humax is given as not available till Sept; and these PVR's are often late.
    Different people have different views on the different models. I would spend some time looking through the discussions in this thread and here
    I dont think any of them have the functionality (or the cost!) of Sky+.
    The Topfield probably comes closest IMO. I have one and get on fine but like all of them (apart perhaps from the rather basic single tuner Humax PVR8000T; which is not the Humax you mention) it does lose recordings.
    If ever losing a recording is a major life event for you it might be better to wait. Frankly for me the benefits of having a digital PVR even if it does lose the odd recordings are well worth it. Even Sky+ can have its problems I believe although never used one personally.
    Hope this is useful; someone will probably be along soon to disagree with me. :)

    Richard

    I don't think that the humax 9100 is can be used for freeview but for digital satellite.

    Actually Reading Technowitz posts he has obviously been refering to satelite PVR's througout; confusion my fault.
