When working just terrific no messy tapes or disks, easy to use, and plenty of storage. To bad it is not feasible to have repaired

Great unit when first purchased (approx november2007)

This is an excellent machine and I am delighted with it.It can also be made region free with a special remote, an added bonus.

RGB In and Out ; Watch the programme you are recording before recording ends ; Lots of connections including dv-in for camcorder, PC-Card slot for memory cards ; Great pictures on both xp and sp modes ; Flexible recording mode

I have problems with the audio on Sky in composite mode ; I have experienced a 'shudder' a couple of times at the beginning of recordings
