Sagem PVR6280T review


Sagem's box might look uninspiring, but it offers a Sky+-style recording system for Freeview. There are so many benefits to having a Freeview PVR, and Sagem manages to nail it with a great EPG and dual tuner functionality. The 80GB hard drive also...

Ease of use ; Dual tuners ; Can easily pick up a digital signal

Mundane design ; Slightly confusing interface ; Poor manual ; Won't record two channels simultaneously

Sagem has made the strange choice of making the stereo audio output a headphone connector, whereas most other boxes use standard Red/White phono connectors. That means that you might need to buy a converter to connect up to standard AV amplifiers....

Sagem PVR 6280T DVB-T Twin Tuner 80GB


In spite being made in FRANCE I find this machine very good, It did use to freeze up but after several (over air) software upgrade it works fine. I like the ability to edit what is recorded i.e. remove commercials etc. before tranfering to DVD.

Can't really think of any.

A neat small machine
