Humax PVR-9200T personal video recorder gets an upgrade

Personal video players

  We took a look at the highly-rated Humax PVR-9200T recorder way back in August last year. And if you bought picked one up, you might like to know that it’s had an update, which lean slightly towards Sky’s Sky+ box. And the update is free.

New features include Chase Play, which means you can start watching a show before it has finished recording (rather than wait for the credits to roll). And there’s also Auto Padding, which means you can extend the start and end times of recordings automatically, so you don’t miss out on a crucial opening or closing scene if programme schedules over-run (as was the case on numerous shows I recorded around the time of the World Cup).

The enhanced 160GB Humax PVR-9200T is available now. If you’re an existing PVR-9200T user, you can upgrade your recorder for the latest features by visiting the Humax website for a software download.
