Toshiba HD-S25

 

Toshiba's HD-S25 supports simultaneous high-definition and standard-definition output as well as picture-in-picture and digital audio.

HD digital receiver (1080i) ; Supports Picture-in-Picture (PIP)

Remote control not user-friendly ; Unit locked up during testing ; Expensive

Apart from the Toshiba unit freezing on us, we find that the HD-S25 has a decent array of high-end features that makes it a cut above other units we've seen. However, cheaper HD set top boxes can be found on the market.

Bad

 

Very average for the price and supposed reputation of Toshiba products as espoused in their advertising material, and not worth having repaired

Good feature list

I got used to the unit freezing on me and not accepting signals from the remote, but i just returned from 10 days overseas, during which I unplugged all of my electronic units, and now find the unit freezes with the word 'wait' on the display. Despite...

Terrible

 

i've had toshiba amps, vcr's (beta and vhs) cd and dvd players and never had a problem. with the trouble i've had with this set top box and the warranty issues and lack of service, i will never buy toshiba again!

good when it actually works!

the stb came as part of a deal when i bought a toshiba hyper-digital tv ($3600!!!!). it was trouble from day 1; kept freezing or if powered down, hit and miss to fire it up. sent it back under warranty; they had it for 3 months, same issues when it...

Terrible

 

Apart from the sound quality, the unit has got alot of well documented specs and having an aux input was a bonus. Unless the problems are fixed I will replace with another brand. What Brands are Comparable or better than Toshiba?

Picture quality

Sound quality after about 50 minutes starts to distort and eventually total loss of sound. Unit does get very hot and is installed in a well open vented shelf.Remote does not respond quickly very slow tried new batteries same problem.Just purchased...

OK

 

The box is very slow to tune in but once thru that about 20 to 25 mins it has a good picture would have liked them to have DVI or better HDMI connection or both

Toshiba stb and Sharps new stb are one in the same...I sell these boxes plus others. Toshiba is aware of problems with the boxes there is an update disc for the firmware retail could have a copy.

our boxes at work have problem freeezing HD on channel 9 firm ware upgrade has stopped this problem so check with your retail if they been upgraded

Good

 

An excellent STB with fantastic audio and visual quality;my Panasonic HD 76cm TV really makes set come alive. Whilst it is never good to have a problem with goods, I have to say that I am glad that it was with the set top unit, and distributors were...

EXCELLENT picture via component connection, ability to change display resolutions via remote control, simultaneous output of SD for DVD/VHS, AUX input and easy to operate. Also, did have a problem with channel 9 freezing but fantastic after sales...

slow start up and channel changes. A timer channel change facility would be nice so can record digitally from different channels.

Terrible

 

If its as good as they say and your game give it a try.however when i took my 2nd unit back there was another guy in the store returning his 2nd unit also (perhaps just a bad batch?). The serial numbers of the two units i purchased and subsequently...

If you can believe everything you are told about this unit it, should be great! But...

1st unit locked up only hours after instalation and would not respond to anything except unplugging,and would not hold its memory.the 2nd unit lasted a week then it did the same thing but went one step further. When restarted the audio was about 15...
