About this deal

As you'd expect, the broadcast Freeview HD TV comes in via the aerial and then you have a choice of connections for output. I can find references from owners saying that their DTR-T1*** models are OK for SD but haven't seen any for any of the DTR-T1*** models. Save energy, save moneyOur power supplies all carry ENERGY STAR ® accreditation, as a result of having an efficiency above 85%. Our box packed up giving that irritating occasional beeping noise whilst stuck on the loading screen. If you want to watch something you've missed, you can scroll back to it, select the programme and the catch-up player you need will open to play that specific content.

You might see some of the connections for the HDMI socket on the bottom of the PCB but some might be under the socket itself so are not visible for inspection.There's a record button, as well as a YouView EPG (electronic programme guide) button and a navigation controller. However, when using the SMART standby option, I noticed the disk span up and back down again about once per minute, which was quite loud.

I switched it off with the unit power button, but now when I try to switch it back on there is no power – nothing happens at all. It's here that you'll find a huge range of BT TV subscription content, as well as pay-per-view movies. The biggest change with the T2100, however, is that the YouView EPG is much faster than it was on the T1000. Had a little difficulty removing the drive due the the sticky pad underneath but, once released, it came out easily. You can only rewind live TV, not move back to a specific time by selecting it using the arrow keys as on other Humax PVRs.It does work if you run into problems, but be warned in cases can totally jam your box if a hardware fault. The constant writing to disk by the Youview box, even when not recording a programme, will quickly wear out an SSD and it will fail. All working, thanks it certainly helps having people like you around that will take the time to assist others. They're the same connections as the old YouView box, so if you're swapping one for the other, it's literally a case of swapping the cables over and plugging it in. The actual BT element only really impacts on the experience when you step into the sections that BT adds to the mix.
