Two more reviews of Freeview HD recorders that I’ve done have been published this week on Register Hardware.
The first (though I wrote it second) is of the Humax HDR-Fox T2 – the most capable of the Freeview HD units I’ve played with so far. And the second review is of the Digital Stream DHR8203U. It’s a slightly less polished unit than the Humax, but a sound performer again, and if you don’t need the network facilities of the Humax, it’s well worth a good look.
Worth pointing out is that both of these will produce Dolby Digital surround sound from their optical outputs, so you’ll get the full Freeview HD audio experience. Right now, I’d put these two at the top of any shopping list.
