Digital Stream DHR8203U review


A slow EPG blights this Freeview+ HD recorder's otherwise impressive performance

User interface ; HD pictures ; SD upscaling

Slow EPG ; Crowded remote ; No DivX support

Expert review by:

Digital Stream DHR8203U Freeview HD recorder


Looking for a Freeview+HD PVR?

GUI, high-def & standard-def pictures, quality of recordings

Poor remote, sticky EPG

Though the 8-day EPG can be sticky and slow to navigate and the remote control is poor, the quality of both live HD and SD broadcasts and recordings isn't in doubt. Quality upscaling and a relatively low price make Digital Stream's debut worth considering
