    Hi guys,
    Newbie here, i've done a search without being satisfied, so very many seasonal apologies if its already been posted.
    is it possible to record SKY programes onto the Humax 9200 and also from an external vcr.
    Also is it straightforward to record from the Humax to a DVD recorder.

    This I think is fairly straight forward but not got a Hummy myself.

    It is much easier to dump pre recorded programmes *TO* an external device such as a DVD recorder with V1.00.10 of the firmware. This allow multiple programmes previously recorded by the Humax to be tagged then played out in one session instead of having to baby sit each programme one at a time.

    It was easy with the earlier versions of the software, but it would only play one programme at a time.

    [Edited to clarify]
    Like most (what are generally termed) PVR's, the Humax 9200T can only record from its built in tuners, of which it has two. It can not record from external sources. For that you either need a Tivo, VCR, DVD recorder or variation on the theme.

    Just to clarify what ianh64 says: "It is" is a follow-on to the above answer to your second question about recording FROM the Humax TO a DVD recorder.....

    You CANNOT record anything except received Freeview ON to the Humax, or any other Freeview PVR for that matter.
