PHILIPS HDTP8540 Freeview+ HD Recorder - 1 TB

 

Parts of it worked

Didn't record the items we asked it to and the remote appeared to be wired incorrectly when you went to access the recordings.

There aren't any

It keeps getting stuck and you have to turn it off at the socket and wait 30 secs before it will operate properly again. It doesn't reliably record which maybe related to it jamming You have to go to the guide to see hats on next.

First class addition to my TV viewing. I specially like the non-Sky ability to Pause, Record and Playback all movies.

Nothing at all.
