HUMAX HDR 1003S Twin Tuner VAST Certified Set Top Box - PVR Ready
Remote Australia is renowned for fluctuating power surges, brownouts and blackouts. Power surges can cause electronic devices with low tolerance power supplies to fail and this is very common. Particular attention at the design phase was given to the Humax 1003S power supply knowing that these units would be used in remote areas of Australia where power levels are known to fluctuate. This rugged design has resulted in a decoder that will last where others fail.

Just open the door on the right side and insert the drive (if purchased as per option 2 or 3 above) into the SATA slot (must be powered down first).
