I am looking for a new Freeview box and I have narrowed it down to two receivers a Humax FVP-5000T or a Manhattan T3-R. Just looking for advice which receiver would you consider is the best to purchase?
Had my FVP-5000T for over a year now. Not sure why I've stuck with it though. It's slow beyond belief, and navigation is just painful - you can almost see the entire guide appearing channel by channel. For some reason, Humax used the same CPU in the 5000T as was in the 4000T, and it's just not fast enough. It seems reliable enough at recording, but I've never been able to detect all channels on it (my TV is fine though, and detects everything). Seriously looking at the T3-R 1TB as a replacement, for the speed alone. I don't think dropping from 3 to 2 tuners would cause me any issues.
