TechniSat HDFS - Freesat HD Receiver of the Year 2010!

Adding to a great year for the multi-award winning TechniSat HDFS, it has received the Freesat HD Receiver of the Year 2010 award.

The Freesat Product Awards 2010 were judged by the editors of What Satellite & Digital TV, Home Cinema Choice and consumer technology website Techradar.

Across the categories of Freesat HD, Freesat + Recorders and TVs, products were recognised for excellent design, build quality, AV performance and for including features that exceed the Freesat specification to bring greater functionality to the user.

The HDFS was the winner of the Freesat HD Receiver category:

Technisat’s HDFS made instant waves by building on the Freesat HD specification, enabling users to enjoy music, video or photos, both from USB, flash or networked storage, with an optional Wi-Fi connection.

The HDFS received still further recognition as it was judged to be runner up in the overall Freesat Product of the Year 2010 which covers products across all Freesat categories:

The Technisat HDFS proves it is possible to innovate with entry-level products, and has raised all our expectations for future Freesat HD receivers.

  1. I think it is better to have a HD TV with Freesat embedded I’m pleased with my Panasonic TX-L37V20B LCD/LED TV

  2. have had my foxsat hd reciever for over a year purchase ever made.will not go back to sky again.

  3. Quality box and award well deserved, cheaper way to get a DVR. Am I right in thinking the picture quality is excellent on these boxes, I know the SD picture on my HDR is not amazing.

  4. Best freesat PVR for the 2nd year running goes to the Humax Foxsat HDR by WHAT HI FI? sound and vision awards 2010. This box is truely amazing!

  5. When I kissed goodbye to Mr. Murdoch over a year ago I brought a TechniSat box. It’s never missed a beat so well worth this award.

  6. I debated for some time between the TechniSat and the Humax. Friends have the Humax HD and it looks and performs brilliantly but for me the TechniSat offers more functions including recording to ext drive and playing music from my network connected pc. Now the price has come down to meet the Humax HD, I would certainly recommend this to anyone.

  7. I,m a humax owner myself but would consider the TechniSat for upstairs study room going by reviews. Keep on with the good work Admin

  8. TechniSat HDFS is THE most versatile freesat STB on the market especially at the price. Every feature works as it should, including BBC iPlayer, but for me, the icing on the cake would be Internet Radio ….. ? Could this be done retrospectively as a software download ??.

  9. I would buy one of these in a heartbeat if they did a PVR version. I’m desperate for a Freesat PVR to replace my Sky+ box that can also stream media from my NAS.

    Just connect a USB hard drive, flash memory or compact flash card, and you have a first class PVR!. All the recording software and timers are built-in. It works much better than my Free View PVR!. Buy and enjoy!.

    I am thinking of either the Humax or the HDFS, What i wnt to know is what is the capacity on the flash or compact flash card and how many hours can you store in SD and HD.

  12. Very, very roughly, 1GB of memory stores around half an hour of SD, or a quarter of an hour of HD.

    So choose what capacity of USB drive or flash card for how many hours of recording you want.

    I have used a 4GB Flash card for casual use, and currently use an 80GB external hard drive plugged in to the front USB port (with the rear USB port reserved for the TechniSat WiFi dongle). If you go to the Technisat website you can download the operating manuals and preview the specs! It’s a great machine!

    With respect James, I’ve used both, and the Humax can’t hold a candle to the HDFS! Once you’ve used one, you don’t want anything else.

  15. I see there is new firmware
