Do not buy the Technomate TM-8000 Hd combo unless you like to do the manufacturer's product testing for them. They certainly don't do it themselves.

Good points: Excellent quality HD picture from satellite sources. Nice shiny black case.

Bad points: Hopeless software, when received I could not make any timer recordings on an optional built-in 'caddy' hard drive. Eventually, I got a patch from the dealer that helped in this particular instance - but still get random issues where the machine forgets the date/time and reverts to the factory default 1 Jan 2009. Have to keep resetting the date manually. User Manual is just a load of glossy screenies that are of little use - a newbie to satellite would be struggling. Don't bother to visit the maker's website - online support is appalling, no full manual - only a 'quick set-up guide'. Oh, I nearly forgot, they don't answer their web 'contact us' emails either!

Don't buy this unless you like returning parcels in the post. I wish I had seen the previous review before I bought my Technomate 8000.
The timer for recording is completely usless. I called Technomate and they told me I probably had an earler version of the software and sent me the latest version. IT DIDN'T WORK.
When I called them back the guy told me it's an on-going problem they were working on and one day they would sort it out.
ONE DAY??????????? When I buy a product I want it to work the same day!
So it was NOT fully tested before being sold!
Everything else seemed ok but I don't like being a guinea pig for anyone and I don't like being lied to.
Technomate have lost me as a customer.
I'm now looking for something that does what it says on the tin.

Verified Purchase
Absolutely dreadful. Not fit for purpose. I sent it back for a refund. The faults were:

1. Very unstable. Crashes and reboots frequently. On HD channels this happens about once per minute. Startup screen says `Welcome to HD', then crashes again.
2. Poor picture in both HD and SD.
3. Poor handling of Dolby sound. Menu changes required to get sound when changing from SD to HD channels, unless set to `PCM downmix', which reduces surround sound to stereo. It cannot process Dolby Digital Plus (used on some European TV stations) at all, resulting in silence. Nor can it access the alternative soundtracks on these channels.
4. I believe it may have been reconditioned, not new, as there were some recordings of German TV on the internal hard disk.

This item is astonishly bad. The recording does not work properly. If set to record it then doesnt stop. Trying to record from the EPG it often gives the message 'duplicate channel' and wont accept it. If switched off it forgets timer recording, if left on it has a noisy fan. There is no proper manual, just a collection of screen shots. After a few weeks the hard disc is 'full' despite deleting programmes, and has to be reformatted which deletes all remaining programmes. I bought this in February and would only buy now if assured the software has been re-written.

"DO NOT BUY this receiver." I have one for 4 years. After a few software changes, still problems. Set timer record but won't always record. If I playback a 2 hour recording, it finishes playback before the recording has finished playing. No output on the second scart socket since last upgrade. Contact tech support for last 12 months without success. I got one with the hard drive installed. I spent between €300 & €400 and I regret buying this TM-8000 receiver. You have been warned.
