The Humax Freeview set-top box allows you to record TV with its pre-installed digital memory. You won't have to buy any tapes, CDs or other recording materials for recording your TV programs. The Humax set-top box uses RF connections, so it can be connected to a VCR with coaxial cables. This enables you to have your set-top box and VCR connected to your TV at the same time.
