Unfortunately, it’s not quite the dreamy unified machine we were hoping for: see what we mean in our full Samsung BD-C8500M review.

The Humax HDR-FOX T2 has been a long time in the making: launched all the way back in December of last year, it was poised to be the first Freeview HD recording set top box to go on sale.
