Have just bought a 80Gb Humax PVR-8000T from Dixons to replace a Pace DVTA (which worked fine - I just wanted the extra funcs). Two problems. 1) Recordings play back in mono. This can be fixed by frigging about with the playback sound option each time a recoding is selected. I'm not impressed but can live with it. 2) However... Major bummer is dreadful reception. My old Pace DVTA worked fine - but the 8000T reports 'bad signal' randomly on various channels at various times and for various durations for no good reason I can determine. Very disappointed at this. Makes the unit unusable. I understand that I'm not alone here as these problems have been noted by other users on various forums. I have written to Humax on both these points and will post their responses as I receive them. I really want to like this machine but these faults make this rather difficult. Unless I get satisfaction this thing goes back to Dixons.
