Topfield TRF-2460 Masterpiece HD Plus

 

The TRF-2460 does what it's set out to do well and the Ice TV feature is handy, but the almost identically specified TRF-7170 undercuts it on price by a handy margin.

Wireless networking adapter included ; Generally easy to use ; Plenty of space ; Ice TV functionality is handy, but costs extra after trial period

Too many similar-looking buttons on remote ; DivX/MKV playback features need work ; TRF-7170 better priced, almost identically specified

The TRF-2460 does what it's set out to do well and, if you don't mind paying a small monthly fee, the Ice TV feature is handy, but the almost identically specified TRF-7170 undercuts it by a handy margin, at least on the RRP. Unless you can find a...

Good PVR

 

The Topfield TRF-2460 Masterpiece HD Plus has sever me well. I love that I can hook it up to my home network via wifi. Also able to download recorded programs to any of my computers over the network. The ICE TV service which came with it is good, but...

Large HHD, good price, able to setup on home network

Wifi drops out randomly.

GOOD...but only just

 

This is a good piece of kit. I almost marked it as 2 or 3 stars, but realistically, the only real flaw, though its a doosie, is its willingness to want to reset somewhat frequently. We can go for weeks without issue, but then other times , like the...

4 show recording, abundance of features, universal remote (somewhat), connectivity

Recordings sometimes fail, and it restarts toooo frequently (more than others I've had)

4 in a year Masterpiece 2460

 

I have had four machines in a one year period all with hard drive problems. Harvey Norman Moss Vale have been great. Topfield service is well can I say rubbish? I have the first Topfield ever made over ten years old and has never missed a beat. The...

If it worked correctly all the time as it should it would be the best around.

Disk failures on four machines, poor firmware updates, poor Tech support, reboots, shutdowns

It does what I wanted it to do. and has done since a year ago. Not dissapointed

 

I have the 1TB model. It does the recordings as it should. Doesn't really skip a beat. My one isn't as glitchy as others that have reviewed it however the front screen sometimes shows jumbled up. This could be replaced under warranty. Little bit on the...

Does what I want, records 4 channels.

Glitchy screen display

Very Flaky but great when it works

 

Had it for almost a year now. It randomly reboots, had it happen 3 times in 2 min last night. One reboot a few months ago resulted in 1TB of recordings lost as it wiped the HDD. Everytime it reboots any recordings are stopped and have to be restarted....

4 recordings at once, TAPs give a huge improvement

Unreliable, poor Topfield customer support. This rebooting issue (see below) has been known for a couple of years and still no fix from Topfield.

Consumer review (productreview.com.au)

Expensive but good if you know how to use some TAPs

 

Good clear pictures. Good reception. Complicated operation at times. Some firmware gliches that erased all my recordings once - not happy jan. Also random reboots due to the latest firmwares very annoying, although can be fixed. Best thing about it is...

4 tuners

Glichy firmware updates, lost recordings and random reboots.

Consumer review (productreview.com.au)

Worst piece of audio visual equipment I have ever purchased.

 

Do not consider Topfield if you (a) want to actually watch programs you have recorded (after setting a recording and then checking channel, date,times etc it will record something 6 hours earlier) (b) like to browse the guide (you cant! It brings up...

Picture quality.......but it wasn't the pictures I wanted to see!!!!!!

Absolutely everything (except the picture quality)

Did my head in!!!

 

I bought this damn machine less than a year ago. It has been a struggle to work it. The remote is so hard to get to work in that you have to point it and press hard! When using the guide it will just suddenly jump to 12hrs to 24hrs beforehand...

Bashing it!!

slow, non responsive and flawed

Masterpiece Not. Decent Kit, Yes.

 

The 2460 is light years better than the Toppy 7100HDpvrt in most regards, but retrograde in others. The ftp server does not make the external disk visible, and one cannot default to the external disk, but have to go through selections to get to it each...

Looks good. 1 TB HDD. Easy menus. TAP Applications.

Pricey. Curious omission of some functionality in other/earlier Toppys
