heap of rubbish


My 1TB machine does all of the above plus picture turns green no way to right it, except turn it off for a week or so. I threw it in the garage where it can rot. Customer service does not exist.

deeply frustrated Grundig GDVR1TB FV


keeps freezing. nothing to do but switch off at the wall and back on, wait while it reboots and live in hope. Junk of the first order. We thought we'd made a huge breakthrough by connecting the antenna direct to the Grundig leaving the DVD player out...

constant, completely unpredictable freezing

If you want to go to an early this machine!


If you want to go to an early this machine! It freezes up constantly. It seems to get worse when you upgrade the software. It will also say it is recording a program and it does not. Spent so many times emailing Grundig and they could not...

Absolute rubbish


It freezes and to reboot it you have to pull the plug because the on/off button never worked. You think you have recorded a programme or series and it fails and now it wont even reboot. The idea is good but the experience was bad. Do not waste your money.

Good idea if it works

Another lemon


I wish I had seen these reviews before I let the Harvey Norman Salesman talk me into my Grundig Freeview Digital Video Recorder, I am having all of these same problems as other people, with freezing, not recording a preset program, pixelating etc, I...

A means of not missing out on shows against other great shows.

A very disappointing piece of expensive equipment.


I thought it would be the best as it was the most expensive in the store. Mine went in for repair and after weeks of waiting, I have just received someone else's reconditioned unit. Shock horror, it is doing the same thing as my original one. Keeps...

Nice looking unit. Compact.

Does not record a set program. Does not record at all and freezes. Stops before the end of the program when it does record. You have to turn it off at the power and wait then turn it back on. Did this so many times, it finally completely froze.
