Bad purchase.


if that doesn't work, its off to a retailer to replace this bad investment. Have got lots of Panasonic and LG products, which have never let me down and the Sony DVR I bought my daughter is brilliant. Will never buy Teac again.

The worst product we have ever purchased


From the day we 1st fired this thing up it was a lemon. For a review it will save time by stating what it does do well rather than what it doesn't so I will try to do just that !. it turns on & turns off, that's it. This rotten piece of rubbish has so...

Do not purchase this Teac PVR. Have had nothing but problems with it since the day purchased a few years ago. Product failed within first 2 weeks, was given a replacement, which failed within 2 months which meant it became a warranty issue. Have had...


Froze, switched recordings midway to another channel, playback would be unwatchable due to static type recording, continually switches itself off & reboots .

Very unhappy with this product


Unit fails to record a program frequently, freezes at least 3 times a day only resolved by turning unit on/off and then it reloads and erases hard drive. Often wont erase programs when selected and then freezes. EPG frequently drops out as does some...

EPG, freezing, deletes hard drive, fails to record, drops channels

Had my unit for 2 years


After 2 years I was secretly glad when my TEAC PVR 2500t died. I would freeze roughly once a month- but the EPG would drop out & become blank every 2 days: both of these issues needed the unit to be turned off and on to fix. Frequently it would fail to...


failure to record, frequently blank EPG, regular 'freezing' during operation

Had my HD2500T for 3 years and am happy with it


Luckily my unit doesn't have any of the faults mentioned by others. I've done only one software update to correct the time zone for South Australia. I haven't done any other updates as I'm happy with it as is. I've posted this to add some balance to...

Ease of use and stable

Teac HDR2500T


I have had my PVR for nearly one year. Apart from a few issues, I am happy with the product. Issues included; * Changing date/time by itself (1/1/1970!) * Recording shows that were not scheduled by anyone * Recording at the wrong times * Not recording...

Record two shows at once, watch another. Stylish. Reasonably priced in comparison with other PVR's.

Doesn't turn off after finishing recording. Has a mind of it's own.
