I bought this last week (great service from Pricelover) but I have been forced to return it today. It was easy to set up and everything seemed fine but, unfortunately, it has a couple of faults:
1. The tuner can't keep a lock on BBC TV channels (SD and HD). I have three other digital tuners; one in the TV, two in the PVR that don't have that problem (with the SD channels of course). I can only assume that the tuner in the Sharp is of an inferior quality.
2. Bringing the machine out of power saving mode or switching on from cold causes it to freeze. The only way to solve this seems to be switching it off at the wall, then on again.
I could live with the second problem but I purchased the receiver mainly to watch the BBC HD channels, and in that regard it doesn't really function in any useful way. If you get a good signal, as opposed to an OK one, this unit might do you fine. Otherwise, like me, you will need to look elsewhere.
*Recieved no-quibble refund from Pricelover*
UPDATE: I bought a Grundig GUD300HD which must have a better tuner because it works pretty well on the channels that the Sharp couldn't handle. Well enough that I've been able to watch anything I liked without any problems.
