Sharp Digital TV Recorder TU-TV502H


If you have seen other PVR's and press ahead without fully reading the manual then I suspect like me you will be rather disappointed with this unit, however after reading the manual you will find it does everything but some things are done differently.

Picture and Sound quality is good, I did not test the optional Top UP TV that needs you to purchase a card to view channels that will otherwise be scrambled

Looks good, easy to install. Remote simple to operate- easy to use. It's quiet, I had a Humax which made a lot of noise - disc drive. Recording programmes is easy. Great vale for money

No HDMI port

Sharp TUTV502H


Looks good and it's easy to set up and use. The storage capacity allows you to record everything that you wish without having to worry if there is enough space (317 hours to be exact). You can set up to record series at the touch of a button and also...

If you have a weak digital signal in your area this can be a problem as occasionaly the box can lose signal and it may well mess up your planned recordings. It's not really a fault with the box though to be honest.

Sharp TUTV502H


It doesnt record properly, it was jumping constanly on every programme. If you dont have a digital tv they are a waste of time because the picture constantly kept stalling. We had to send ours back as it was faulty.
