    Yes i seen it last night aswell looks good seems to be a updated version of last years model as its not on http://www.humaxdigital.com/uk/ with those specs. The girl showing it off said it had a hdmi input but according to your qvc link its dvi instead lol.

    would prob give it a try if i didnt already have a lcd tv.

    She didn't have a clue how to drive it. She tried to show off the split screen with 2 DTT channels showing at the same time. :)

    They make me smile :)

    I suspect that QVC have made a mistake with their specs. The contrast ratio, resolution and luminance are of the 32 inch model. Are you sure that there is a newer 26 inch model with these specs, Peahead? :confused:

    I think you are right about that one Shrink not the first time qvc has made a mistake also the girl said that the pc resolution was running at 1280x768 which fits with the real specs are qvc trying to pull a fast one. :nono:

    The reviews I've read of these Humax PVR TVs have usually said words to the effect of 'nice idea but shame the picture quality isn't up to scratch'. I would recommend you buy the tele from a brand who knows more about getting the TV basics right, and then hook it up to one of Humax's excellent seperate PVRs unless space is a major issue for you.

    I have the 32" version of this tv. I bought it last week from the QVC clearance shop for £750.

    After using it for a couple of days I have to say this is a very poor set due to the picture being so dark. I can have this for 30 days and if I dont like it I can return it.

    There are a lot of good things about this set like pc side of is superb pq text is razor sharp games look fantastic but like I said everething is just too dark. I would be very careful with Humax lcd. But there stbs are top notch. I would love to keep this tv if anybody has a fix for this tv I would be grateful if you could post

    Before the Humax I had the Tevion 32" which was bright and the pq was superb but using the pc side of things was rubbish (text)

    I've got to say, if the picture is any good on this, I'll be VERY impressed, as the spec if really very good indeed.

    Oh and BTW, according to Humax, the resolution of the panel is 1366x768, and not 1280, as stated in the manual. Might have to have a trip to John Lewis to see one of these in the flesh I thinks...

    It has an USB port for connecting an external hard drive! That could be interesting.

    On the 32" model you can only backup the internal hd not use as more live storage space. Does anybody know how to get into the service menu on Humax sets
