    Try ringing Comet on 0870 5425425 they will tell you the nearest stores that have stock and can reserve one for you for direct delivery or you can pick it up yourself.

    Do you know what warranty is given with this product, is it standard across the board.

    Considering this or the FTV200 think its called, would this be a consideration or is the Humax a no braniner, I heard you can update the HDD on the 200 without too much hassle, anyone know if this is the case with the 9200 should you ever need to and do you know if the 9200 can record subtitles

    Thanks

    Ordered from Dabs 7/10 for £199
    After messing me about for ages, and the good reviews of Turbosat, cancelled my Dabs order and ordered from Turbosat at 3:30 on Wednesday.
    Dabs deliveries started Thursday :-(
    Just received an email from Turbosat saying they don't know when they will get some more.... At least they are not just making things up like Dabs.
    Getting a bit miffed though.
    I'm considering cancelling my Turbosat order and just waiting until I can actually see one in a shop.

    All this talk about how good they are doesn't help either....

    Try your local Comet store. You will only pay £10 more than Turbosat, and there are some reports of them being faulty straight out of the box. In which case you can easily return it for a replacement.

    For interest's sake:

    Just been to John Lewis at Cheadle. No 9200Ts in today, and the bloke I spoke to didn't even seem to know what I was referring to.

    Two weeks ago, JL at Trafford Centre said they were expected "in two weeks".

    Ho hum. I can wait ;)

    I can second Turbosat as a good supplier. They confirmed by phone that the unit was actually in stock (not always the case with some suppliers) and delivered next day, well-packaged and waterproofed. Delivery was not charged.

    Having a bit of bother ordering a Humax PRV9200T


    Can anybody :lease: recommend a retailer that will post to the Shetland Isles ZE2 post code
    Most will not send here unless for a ridicules amount quoted £30 from one place :thumbsdow
    Pity they wont use Royal Mail because it’s the same price to here as it is to anywhere on the mainland.

    For those that are interested, DABS have the 9200T in stock... they had about 90 left at the time I posted this.

    Cheers,

    The Humax 9200T is quite heavy - seems to be nearly twice that of the Topfield. Looking on the rather large box - it doesn't state the weight on that either. It may be over the Royal Mail weight limits.

    Empire Direct will send to Shetland ZE postcodes but say this will incur extra charges. They will quote via email.

    Comet branches have them at £230 which isn't a lot more than the etailers are charging. Don't know if you have a Comet branch in Lerwick tho as never got outside Sumburgh Airport when I was working on the Platforms. Perhaps your best bet would be to collect one in Aberdeen or check out some possible sources there for delivery to Shetland. There sure is an awful lot of air traffic between the two areas.

    From the later thread on DABS - they have the price as £210. Standard delivery £7 plus a surcharge of £11-75 on ZE postcodes. In other words - what you would normally pay at a Comet branch.

    Thanks for all the replies :thumbsup:

    Ya i have bought from Dabs before and they do add about £10-£15 on top of the standard delivery charge.

    Problem solved :D (I think)
    I’ve found that Hughes Direct have just got them in stock £209.99 and after some confusion with the delivery (got a delivery quote when ordering online then half way through the check out said they couldn’t send here) but after i emailed them they have agreed to honour the quote so I’ll be phoning them back to complete the order tomorrow,
    And it works out with the postage to be just under the Comet price which is a good thing because we don’t have one here.


    Let’s hope it’s worth all the hazel?

    I wandered into Currys in Ipswich today, just to see if they had any (since I was passing).

    I asked the young buck masquerading as a wandering sales assistant if they had any Humax PVRs. He said the only Humax products they sold were TVs, but would go to the warehouse and check the 'master database' (who I suspect was his mate called Trevor).

    Whilst he was gone, I kept looking around the aisles and located their PVRs and saw the Humax PVR8000T (in 40Gb and 80Gb versions). When the chap came back he confirmed that the only Humax products they sold were TVs and seemed somewhat flummoxed when I pointed out the 8000s we were stood next to.

    I wandered out of the shop sufficiently amused by this to not be as disappointed as I might have been.

    Does anyone know any stores (bricks & mortar) around Wycombe / Watford (as far as Slough or Central London) which have these in stock now. I'm trying to get one for my father's birthday this weekend and would rather not rely on an e-tailer at this stage.

    John Lewis in the Harlequin Centre, Watford sells the Humax PVR's (as well as the DigiFusions). I'm not sure if they have the 9200T in stock yet though, but you could ring and ask.
