Aftersales backup


The stb7000 connected up without any problems, the problem was the dvr didn't dvr. A message would come up," no internal device" , the hard drive was not being recognised. After studying the instructions and searching on the internet, I decided to ring...

Excellent PVR


I have used several PVR in the past, currently I have a topfield 2400HD, SONIQ, I had a foxtel IQ 2 HD, this unit has been very painless for me. The Topfield unit, I had to purchase an extra wifi dongle, and still it refuses to play any youtube videos....

Price point is right, quick and responsive, works flawlessly

almost perfect


I have had the SRT7000 since they were released. It has been faultless. I have never had freezing as some people say. At first I had a remote that wouldnt work which was replaced. I didnt like the long start up. That was rectified with firmware update....

Easy to record/edit ads and file copy so can copy media files to it. Plays media files from external drive

No Mheg-5 epg so only now/next program

Big Mistake!


There are a number of attributes that I like about the SRT7000 (some of the video manipulation is good) ... however, I have had a massive problem with the Timer Lead In/Timer Lead Out (it was initially missing, it appeared, it disappeared, and it...

Video playback and fast-forwarding capabilities

Timer Lead In/Timer Lead Out, failed on change to daylight savings time, minimal technical support by Strong.

Rubbish Product


I've lost count of the number of times I've had to pull the plug out and start the whole loading again. Numerous freezing of functions, and sometimes says it is recording, only to find it hasn't recorded after-all. No confidence in it at all. Often...

Stay away from this Company and its products until/unless they deliver what they sell. Too many faults to mention from 'out of the box' to the latest update. Clearly marketed and sold without any reasonable testing at all. Worse still, the amateurish...

Good in theory; pathetic in practice.

Smart Series Record failure, freezing, shutting down and losing recordings, audio problems, lousy epg, terrible customer service etc.

Latest Firmware makes this the best PVR on the market, Full Featured PVR Set TopBox


Just purchased one of these after returning a Sony HDT1000 for a full refund. Was a little concerned after reading some of the earlier reviews with issues, but i thought I would give it a try after hearing that new firmware had fixed things. The Strong...

Full featured has everything you could want.

None really, maybe some options to customise the menu skin would have been nice.

Doesn't work properly


Bought this in January after we were unable to find Tivo and the salesman at harvey norman said this would be even better. We thought it may take some getting used to however we are still waiting! The series record only works occasionally, with some...

Records many shows at once

Rarely works properly

Don't buy one


Nothing works, can't deselect mute or subtitles. Doesn't record series. Can only get it to work by switching it off and then waiting 5 minutes for it to reload. Can.t select programme, comes up "no information". Can't access technical support either on...
