Very easy to use

I do get some interference on the picture but this may be due to the signal rather than the recorder

Philips DVDR3570H

 

Large storage space, can rewind live tv, can transfer mpeg, jpg, wmv and div x files via USB port

Started off recording automatically from Sky box but has stopped now for some reason-can still use preset timer but more hassle.
