Topfield TF5000PVRt Masterpiece

 

USB port, well designed interface

No HD support

Topfield has done nearly everything right with the TF5000PVRt. It's beautifully designed, can talk to PCs and is only lacking when it comes to HDTV.

Topfield TF5000PVRt Masterpiece (Black)

 

A PVR with a dash of style, Topfield's Masterpiece allows you to store up to 80 hours worth of TV on its hard disk. It features USB connectivity, dual-tuners and support for third-party applications called TAPs.

Dual digital tuners to record two channels simultaneously ; 160GB hard disk can store around 80 hours of television ; Supports add-on applications, including a seven-day EPG

Sluggish fast-forwarding ; No digital video connection

Topfield also sells a 120GB, 60-hour TF5000PVRt, which doesn't look as smart as the Masterpiece, but shaves a couple of hundred dollars off the asking price.

Topfield TF5000PVRt (with ICEguide)

 

Topfield's 120GB PVR combined with IceTV's EPG allows you to easily create your own 60-hour digital video library of free-to-air television.

Topfield TF5000PVRt Masterpiece (Black)

 

Unfortunately most reviews for this product seem to stem from how good this TYPE of product is, not how good the product is. This PVR was meant to be the most reliable out there from all reviews but but was buggy from day 1. The unit continually...

Not much. Relatively user friendly when it works

Unstable and barely useable

Ease of Use

Hassle taking programs for the Toppy to a computer

I bought this when they first came out and never regretted the price -its one of the best things I've bought.With the ICe tv wireless upgrade its so easy to program. The taps make most things a breeze. Even my nontechnical wife loves the topfield!

Excellent product Too many to list

The only thing wrong is the fast forward -too slow . Hope a tap comes out to fix this

Topfield TF5000PVRt Masterpiece (Black)

 

Great Product. It has revolutionised the way I watch TV.

Timeshift, dual tuners and lots of space for recording. PIP for sports

Preloaded firmware did not allow dual recording from programmes using the timer. However Topfield support solved this with updated firmware. HDD noisy in playback and time shift mode ; Would like to have inputs (XBOX) able to use PIP function
