PVR button on remote won't work at times, yet all the other buttons functions do, when it was working just ∞ minutes before hand, then suddenly not working. F### junk. Unit freezes up. Reboot everything yet to no avail. Never ever buy Grundig!!!!!

PVR has never recorded a show to the end, it either never records, only records 2mins of the show or more frustrating it will miss the last 10 mins of a show. Tried to return to Harvey Norman (place of purchase) however they would not accept it back...

Bag of shite


Don't bother buying this item save your money, it is useless, it freezes, hit and miss to whether it will record as programmed to. Remote is fickle as to what comand to do as just does it's own thing. Very disappointing Would not recommend to anyone...

Technology Trash


Had this Grundig unit now for over 12 months, recommended by Dick Smith employee as the best for the price?? Right from the get go had problems, locking up, cannot stop recordings, EPG won't come-up. Back to DS and was told, "there is nothing they can...

Lack of support by retailer and Grundig. Does not perform as advertised.

What a wreck


I have had this pvr since software version 32. After upgrading to 41 the main issue was loosing recordings after selecting from the EPG. After version 51 upgrade, the EPG now fails to display. I will erase the HDD and if the unit continues to not show...

Features specified were attractive.

Problematic and software updates introduced new issues. Quality control serverly lacking.

Poor quality equipment


I purchased a GDVR501FV from Dick Smith on 18 July 2011 -cost $299. I thought I was paying a premium price for premium equipment. It gave trouble from the start. When I complained I was given a firmware upgrade. I upgraded again to VO 45 in October...

Totally unreliable.
