Beyonwiz DP-P2

 

Beyonwiz's DP-P2 is a PVR for those who don't mind a bit of tinkering and setting things up. The quest for the perfect PVR still continues.

Effortless network streaming ; IceTV support ; Pay TV recording

Remote is ordinary ; Interface is clunky ; Pay TV recording has limitations

Ultimately, the Beyonwiz DP-P2 is a good product that does perform as advertised for the most part. At the same time, it's not as purely convenient as boxes like the IQ2 or TiVO, and in the world of TV Junkies, convenience counts for a lot. It's also...

Beyonwiz’s upgrade of its range-topping HD recorder has been trailed as the “world’s most feature-packed PVR”. A good thing? Oh yes…

Absolutely the world's worst remote control - the DP-P2 is not old but it is just not worth the frustration. I'm buying something else.

Not much

Lots

Have owned two of these for a number of years after upgrading from troublesome Topfields.

Nothing

I bought this to convert my VHS. Waste of money that was, no inbuilt TBC and recording via inputs creates MPEG4 files, which are a pain to edit.

Can pull recordings off the box, fairly easy to use, allows you to timeslip

Poor for conversion of VHS (no inbult TBC), input records to MPEG4 (annoying to convert format), getting material off is painful (will not connect directly to a PC and ONLY to a FAT32 drive), files taken off box need conversion before in an editable...

Instructions are not great, and no option to use the unit if your remote dies....damn stupid if you ask me! the tuner is not great as there is a quality difference between my tv tuner and the ones in this unit, and the beyonwiz is not the better out...

Love the icetv option for the iphone...works great

The remote has failed after 3 weeks

I have had it for 5 months and not a problem. Easy to use. 500g can record heaps of shows. Can program to record remotely from my iPhone via icetv. Love it.

Easy recording/playback. IceTV

Remote is only downfall

DP-P2 is an exceptional unit. After 3 months use I have not been able to fault it. I can't see how others rate such a device after one day. Instant recording and time shifting from live TV seamless. 320 GB HDD with 2 USB ports and networking makes...

Very connectable Unit ; 320 GB HDD stores plenty ; Ice TV allows remote programming of shows

Network setup can take an hour or so to setup

Not sure what some complaints are about in the most part it does exactly what is says on the box much like the review states. Other than for 3 start errors (no start as it turns out) it's a great unit

Timer set from EPG (when it works and see cons) - Resume play ; Styling is good too ; Twin tuner recording and watch pre recorded or current channel option e.g. rec prime 6 rec prime hd 60 ; Plays virtually everything from the USB - everything from a...

User manual needs overhaul - the internet and network instructions are confusing - no error list for problems so far (need to refer to the BW site) ; RC - buttons stick I mean suck (both actually) ; Pricey compared to similar PVR's ; Waiting for WizTV...
