Review of the Humax 7500t
from Smarthouse. Though I read everything from that site with a large grain of salt, this is about the only review that I have seen so far...
The writer of this review seems to be biased against Topfield. (For a while so was I because of the never ending issues with the previous models).
Maybe the Masterpiece is Topfield's top end model but even the much cheaper Topfield 7160 is in my opinion a better featured product and can be found for under the asking price of the Humax so his comparison of price isn't justified,
although admittedly the 7160 does have Ice TV support.
Also his statement that the Humax has only one USB port is incorrect, it has 2 usb ports, one front and one rear.
I have no serious complaints about the Humax and it's a good PVR, but I still maintain my Topfield 7160 does most of the things just a little better than the Humax, plus it has TAP support.
Also the Australian Humaxdigital website has what appears to be new firmware available for download, but it doesn't give any indication of fixes or changes, nor does it explain how to update.
There's nothing in the user guide that I can find that explains how to update via usb and there's nothing in the menu's either apart from OTA upgrades.
I've sent Humax an email about this tonight and will be interested in seeing how long they take to respond and if they provide the necessary help, as their level of support when they were in Aus previously was abysmal.
