Quality Price Service
instruction books look brand new, only disappointment is
the actual box which is rather tatty and as this is for a christmas
present I will have to try and tidy it up somehow.
I am sure the machine will work ok as I have had one of my
own for four years and it is fantastic (Posted on 15/12/2011)
- Compact unit, easy to set up and opperate, many useful features Review by Trevor from Norwich Norfolk
Price Service Quality
Setting up was simple with easy to follow menus.
Have only recorded a few things so far one using the serial button - all with out any hitches.
It seems well supported on the makers web site - which is all ways good to see.
Only one slight niggle;- I've pluged it into the TV using the HDMI cable not SCART. It all works well except the HDMI does not automaticaly select the correct TV input channel when the recorder is switched on so you need to use the TV remote to change over to HDMI input. Where as SCART will detect the device and change chanel automaticaly. This might be because my TV needs adjusting or HDMI does not have this ability.
Other wise am very pleased with it as its much smaller and easer to use than the Sky plus box its replacing (and saving me about £20 per month) (Posted on 12/12/2011)
