Thanks to an email sent by David P. to John Lewis, it’s been confirmed that John Lewis have removed their email alerts service for the Humax FOXSAT-HDR unit on the basis of awaiting further information from the manufacturer. Not only this, but it seems that they’ve removed all existing names from the alert too, so if you were waiting on an email notification from them, it’s now unlikely to arrive.
Response from John Lewis to David P;
Dear Mr P,
Thank you for your email regarding the Humax FOXSAT-HDR 320GB freesat Digital TV Recorder.
The e-mail alert facility has been removed from www.johnlewis.com until we have further information from the manufacturer about when this item will be available. Please accept my apologies for the fact that the notification list has now been deleted and all names removed from it.
We trust this information will be of use to you. If we can be of any further assistance, please do not hesitate in contacting us on the telephone number below.
We thank you for contacting John Lewis Direct.

On a similar subject, Currys, whom are part of the DSG Group which also includes Dixons have stated that they have no Humax PVR stock and have no intention on selling the product at this time. Could this be down to issues in obtaining stock, economic conditions or just wishing to see how successful the unit is elsewhere first?!?!
