Sony SVR-HDT1000 review

 

Do you want a digital TV recorder that bundles all manner of extra gadgetry onboard, such as Blu-ray player, Smart IPTV functionality and media streaming? Or do you want a simple PVR with a big enough hard drive to let you Series Link without fear?

Huge HDD; quiet operation; archiving to external HDD; music and photo jukebox functionality

No smart portal or video playback on USB; no on-box display

Stunning HD pictures and a massive 1TB of storage, but limited functionality

Stunning HD picture ; clear set-up menus ; massive 1TB of storage

Disappointing BBC iPlayer picture ; EPG’s look and standard-def pics could be better

No iPlayer!!

 

I specifically purchased this Sony Freeview recorder because the Comet website described it have "access to BBC iPlayer" after many calls to Comet and finally to Sony themselves, this product does NOT have access to iPlayer. So please don't be mislead...

Terrible support from Sony

 

Sony screwed up the firmware on this PVR by an OTA update. many thousands of HD recorders are now 'bricks' or 'doorstops' Many thanks to play.com for allowing me to return the 'brick' and giving me an immediate refund. Sony wanted me to take the unit...

Became faulty after 2 months

 

This item has become faulty in the last few weeks after working well for 2 months. The TV picture using HDMI output freezes or breaks up, and the sound is often out of sync with the picture. I have tried using my digital TV with its own aerial signal...

Looks, Capacity

After a year developed intermitent lipsync problems apparently caused by over air updates to sony software. would also turn off and on for no reason and eventually the hard drive failed to respond and would not take USB software update
