The stunning design of this Freeview+ HD recorder includes a sophisticated light feature that can be activated when the device is switched on. 8-day coverage of the Freeview Programme Guide (EPG) has been integrated in a slick, sophisticated user interface for easy navigation.
Not only equipped with top-notch sound & vision technology (Dolby Digital audio & 1080p video quality with HDMI cable included), the HDT8520 also boasts remarkably low power consumption in both active and standby modes and has been designed to function almost silently.
