TVonics DVR-150 review


The growth of Freeview is attracting more manufacturers to digital TV products, from set-top boxes to iDTVs and hard drive recorders - also known as personal video recorders (PVRs). TVonics is based in Wales and has its roots in a former Sony project

Environmentally friendly ; Tuning is simle

Design is not striking ; Crashes if left alone for a few days

TVonics DVR-150 PVR recorder review


If you have often fancied Sky+ with its pausing/rewinding of live TV and the ability to record one channel while watching another, but have barfed at the ongoing cost, then consider the TVonics. Sure, at £190 it is hardly a cheap purchase, but there...

80 hours recording, small, quiet, twin tuners, eco-friendly

Environmentally friendly does not come cheap

Black on the outside, green on the inside. A twin tuner Freeview box with an 80 hour digital recorder to rival Sky, that you can buy at Tesco

Stuff magazine


A new breed of Freeview Playback PVRs have invaded Stuff towers – and this British-made TVonics box is one of the best.

Freeview recording made easy. The DVR-150 is small, pretty and boasts a sizeable hard-drive. Only Murdoch's subscription-only box is a better PVR
