4.0 out of 5 stars Good PVR 16 Nov 2013
Needed a new PVR and this meets all my requirements. It is really easy to set up, it virtually does it all itself. The picture and sound quality is good, maybe a little bright. The menu structure is very easy to understand making channel selection, programme recording and playback simple.

The Smart features are somewhat limited, only 4 internet based apps, so hopefully this will be expanded with new software releases.

The iPad app is brilliant. Again, very easy to use and allows full control over recording, playback and watching any of the channels live. I have not given it 5 stars as occasionally the streaming stops and an annoying screen states that you are not connected to the network and shows you how to connect an Ethernet patch cable to your router. I think this is an issue with the latest version of the iPad app, the PVR still connects fine to iPlayer, never had this issue before the last app update.

I have not seen the issues the other purchasers have reported. I would highly recommend this product.

3.0 out of 5 stars it's the future, but not the present 26 April 2013
This set top box/personal video recorder with Freeview HD was very easy to install and has a companion iPad app that worked very well - taking the whole experience into a different league. The app allows one person to watch a recording on the iPad while the family watches something else on the telly, and allows very easy and intuitive planning of recordings 8 days ahead.
There were some minor problems where the streaming stopped and had to be restarted on the ipad and where a change to YouTube has left the device unable to play YouTube videos until the software is updated, but for me the real problem was that, on deleting a recorded programme I had been playing, the device entered an infinte loop of going through the (very long) wake-up process, and never completing it before going back to the start. This happened on one box after three hours, rendering it unusable, and so after a call to tech support it went back to the shop. Two days later the replacement developed exactly the same problem, another tech support call, and has now been returned for a refund.
Tech support is available by email (took 3 hours to get a reply, and what was suggested was not possible, so phone is better). The phone version of tech support is an 0844 number, and so my total of 20 minutes on to them cost me a few quid. They were friendly and helpful, but baffled, and didn't keep me hanging around for too long.
When working, this product was excellent, so I'm very sorry to leave a poor review. Perhaps my retailer had a bad batch, but both the boxes I tried got stuck in an infinite loop. It's the future of EPGs, but sadly for me not the present.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good features but a bit slow 25 Oct 2012
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
The description on the box gives the impression that it has iPad/iPod to box streaming like Apple TV, but actually it's the other way round as you will see in the pros and cons descriptions, so here they are:


very easy set up (took minutes)

Useful features, eg streaming channels or recordings to iPad or iPod via free app on your iPad/iPod

Intuitive recording preset functions and useful interactive option for series link such as pop up window

Very good TV guide with reminder option

Good picture quality, though the HD isn't as good as say Toshiba freeview HD Freeview. Sound quality good.

Option to change skip forward and back length independently, is very useful.

Menu options pop up in nice unintrusive manner


Slow processor, slow response to remote

The fact that streaming works one way, but not from iPad to box (as one might get impression of from listing description).

Also, streaming is hit and miss, quite regular freezing and error messages in the app.

Box design .... Very light but also odd shape box,

Annoying playback flashing light

Play back is not smooth
