''Humax has announced the availability of its single-tuner PVR-8000T Freeview receiver, at £200 the cheapest personal video recorder launched in the UK so far. Freeview broadcasts are recorded in their original digital form on the box, the PVR-8000T allows viewers to pause and replay live TV for up to 30 minutes. Up to 20 hours' programming can be stored on the integrated hard drive. The PVR-8000T also features a start time and duration reservation setting, allowing viewers to record programmes outside the confines of the EPG. The PVR-8000T has the same functionality as Humaxs F2-FOX T box plus the recordability features. The low, £200 price-point is an indication of the fact that it only includes one Freeview tuner, which means that, while it is possible to record the Freeview channel the viewer is actually watching, it is not possible to record one Freeview channel while watching another. The advantage of the device lies principally in its easy programmability when compared to a conventional analogue VCR recorder, and - of course - access to the digital video and audio aspects of the multichannel Freeview offering.''
