Easy to programme

it didn't work properly! It failed to display all the TV channels so I couldn't set up recordings in advance. I returned it to the store for exchange only to be told they didn't have any more of this make and model.

Philips HDTP 8530

 

Had to get it replaced on first day because power supply failed. Not user friendly, too many yes/no answers to do simple things. Not logical in commands, ie the buttons you would think would work don't.
