Ease of recording

Easy plug-and-play out the box. Simple but functional / intuitive Sky-type remote control. Good quality display and menus. Can record 2 channels at once, unlike many that could and now can't after the digital broadcast system was changed. Very small...

Needs a fair signal or can crash, like so many other DTB boxes, but once it has one works very well. Prog guide is not good (non-proportionate display). Top-Up-TV information keeps appearing, even if you don't use it. You can't set extended record time...

I bought this as a replacement for my Sharps Topup TV box which had gone. I did not have great hopes of it because it was bought knowing it was a refurbished box,. So far it has been brilliant and everything has worked perfectly, however, the main...

Did not have it long enough to find any good points.

After having a digital recorder that had one touch recording, easy TV guide and easy to operate, I found this one very complicated to use on the recording. Also the TV guide was not easy to use or to look at programmes later in the day. When the...

Easy to set up and also nice and compact. Recording and playback easy - at last I'm not missing anything when I'm at work! Series link works fab too.

Shame you can't continue to view the programme your watching whilst also viewing the TV guide, also the top-up TV is a little overkill, doesn't always show the listings, but thats probably a signal issue rather than the boxes fault.
