Expert review by : Ian Calcutt (

Pioneer DVR-540HX


Pioneer only added a Freeview tuner to its recorder range in 2006 but it has made a good job of this one, integrating it alongside the GuidePlus option, so like the Philips, you can also control separate digiboxes. Moreover, Pioneer's recorders have...

Multi-format DVD recording; set-top box control; versatile recording, editing and dubbing features; good AV quality

Lacks HDMI out; no i.Link input

Pioneer DVR-540HX-S


I love Pioneer equipment, most of my AV equipment is Pioneer and this does not disapoint. Superbly Built. Superbly layed out and excellent user interface.

You cannot watch one channel while recording another. The only options you have is to watch the program you are recording or watch a pre-recorded program. A real snag!

Will play just about anything. Very well put together.

Menu takes a little getting used to, but with all the computations I didnt expect any different.
