I wasn't expecting a lot from this. It's only a pound or so more expensive than the cheapest DTV boxes, but claims to offer the extra feature of recording too. I must say I'm pleasantly surprised. It records onto SD card or pen drive, with the 16GB card I've put in allowing up to around 13 hours of very high quality playback.

It needs a bit of careful setting up to get it recording properly. To record, you have to switch the epg into weekly mode by pressing the green button, then select the programme you want to record by pressing select. This takes you into the Timer sub menu, where for some odd reason the default action is just to wake up the box for the programme you have selected. If you move down the menu to 'wake-up' and cycle through til the display shows 'Recorder', then press Select, the box shows a message to say it's been updated. This actually means the recording has been scheduled. Thankfully these settings are then saved, so future recordings are simple.

You can schedule up to 7 recordings, providing there's enough space on your card. The box needs to be left on to record, but obviously not the TV.

It records in mpeg2 format, and once the recording is on the card it can be played back from the DTV box, or in any other device (PC, DVD player) which has a USB input. It also means you can archive programmes by simply copying them onto your PC from the card and either saving them to hard disk or copying them onto DVD.

It's tiny, so is very unobtrusive, and comes with a remote contol breakout and small but usable remote control. No batteries supplied so grab a couple of AAAs before delivery. It's simple to plug in and it collects all the available channels easily.

Great product. Used this device to convert my CRT TV (which had a scart socket) in my bedroom to a digital TV (since the analogue channels have been switched off).

TV reception is good quality. Especially like the record function which allows you to record to a USB pen drive. This device is also excellent for viewing pictures/images on your TV as the quality of the images is better than what I seem to get on my computer.

The device does seem to freeze occasionally (ie the picture on the TV freezes) and you have to turn this device off at the plug socket and on again to resolve.
I haven't worked out why this happens but think it might be when you get fast moving images (like in a music video or a football game).

The size of this device is small so if you are pushed for space in your TV cabinet this device is ideal as it takes up a small amount of space.

The remote for the TV is ergonomic. There is a zoom function so you can zoom in (at different levels) to the program you are watching.

For the price this is excellent.

You don't get a scart lead with the device but at the price this is it shouldn't be an issue (a scart lead is only a few quid or you might have one lying around your house anyway).

I got these (two of them) as replacements for 2 Digifun scart receivers I had bought for 2 small bedroom and kitchen TVs. They just plugged straight into the scart socket of the TV but sometimes came loose when the TVs were turned backwards and forwards. I have found these replacements great. Yes, a bit of time needed to understand how they work, but not long really. And they work fine. They sit flat on the surface behind the TVs so any TV movement does not affect them. Only real problem I have is recording is a bit hit and miss so if you are buying to do a lot of recording you may get frustrated. However for kitchen and bedroom TV digital receivers they are great little boxes at a great price. Hoever there is no scart lead included so you might like to order one at the same time. I got mine in Amazon for £1.79 (no postage) and they work brilliantly. I would also mention that when I contacted Digifun about my original purchase and the problems I was having they could not have been more helpful. Great products and great service.

I wanted something that I could put in my bedroom as at night when I am watching a late night film I often find I am too tired to watch the end. This little box is tiny so the wife does not mind it been in the bedroom and really easy to use. Once I had completed the first time setup I literally put in a usb stick went to the format option and then it is as easy as pressing record.

I now no longer miss the end of the late night movies and for such a great price.

I purchased this to replace an old TopupTV box. I no longer suscribed to TTV but used the box on a bedroom TV for recording, but it started becoming hit and miss and the picture kept breaking up. I really did not want to spend a lot of money on a replacement recorder for a bedroom so when I saw this I thought I would give it a go. I didn't have great expectations of this product as it seemed to promise a lot for the money. How wrong can you be...... it does what it says on the tin! Also, because it records onto a USB stick/SD card you can watch the recording on any TV, laptop etc that has a card reader or USB port. The play back picture quality is very good, in fact you would not know it was a recording. However, it does much more than just record and I am still finding out the full capabilities of this little box. It was well worth the money.
