I am just going to echo what other people have said, but I feel I should just to add to the chorus dissauding people for buying this. It started out so well, this thing, and then it mysteriously gobbled up 20 hours free time on the hard disc, and then it started to freeze in the library section, on fast forward, to flip back to the beginning during past forward, to freeze almost all the time in the library section, to record the wrong thing, and now to freeze just in TV mode. It is going back to the shop tomorrow and I am going to walk in clutching a bunch of these reviews and refuse a replacement. It could be so good and it is so bad. I just cannot believe that Thomsons see it as acceptable to sell these things in such a bad state. I'm going to get myself the Humax box instead. solid, reliable and, yes, that bit much more expensive!! It would seem that you get what you pay for.
