4.0 out of 5 stars Never come across this before., 16 Aug. 2013
I bought this machine refurbished which might account for why it tends to sometimes miss timer records and sometimes even records the wrong channel. Still other people have raved about it so ,I suppose you pays your money etc.. The thing I would like to bring to any future buyers attention is that it will not allow you to record any of the audio channels. Thought I'd mention this because I've never come across this before. (Strange).

5.0 out of 5 stars any ideas, 7 Sept. 2012
So far so good. A bonus of this DVD player is that it allows you to watch the DVD from where it stopped. Even if the power is turned off. I have a question . I know the player is advertised as region 2 only but as. I own a one for all remote I tried the region hack that is suggested on the web. Well it does now play region 1 DVD's BUT only in black and white! Anyone know why???

3.0 out of 5 stars Shame 'The Collector's gone for the obvious, 2 Oct. 2011
Having heard that this compilation was by Phil 'the collector' Swern I thought this could be interesting, maybe he might include the much Sounds Of The 60's [Phil's other show]requested top 10 hit "Friends" by Arrival- never released on CD - but as it was a hit I assume it qualifies . But No- apart from a completely unknown to me Paul Anka track the rest are well known and easily available on other compilation albums. Seems such a waste as I am one of those sad people who would have probably bought this collection just for the one track- Friends by Arrival.

4.0 out of 5 stars Roy Walker comes to mind, 1 April 2009
This review is from: The Best of Dick Emery [DVD] (DVD)
Roy Walker comes to mind with this Dick Emery DVD ''Its good but its not right''. True all the characters are featured like ''I got it wrong dad!"but the dad I associate with this sketch is Roy Kinnear BUT no Roy Kinnear on this compilation. Likewise where is Pat Coombes, another regular but not featured here and very little of Helen (Bad Girls) Fraser in her comedic days.
After watching Stanley Baxter on TV this Christmas why not release a BBC dvd - he did plenty of shows for the BBC. The LWT shows have come out so why not BBC - I expect it won't be the best but probably better than nothing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Good, 30 Mar. 2008
This is the only remote I have come across that will learn any device.
At one time I managed to control 10 different devices with this remote, obviousely not all the features were used but some basic on/off volume/play/stop etc.
I am trying to think of a critisism- but I can't!

4.0 out of 5 stars Wot am I watching!!, 13 May 2007
There is just one thing about this machine that is puzzling me and that is why on the title menu is there a 'thumbnail' picture facility but yet you cannot change it, only the first frame of the recording can be seen which will probably be blank or a tv company logo. If you cannot unlike other recorders choose the thumbnail then why bother having one at all. It is a minor niggle but when you have been used to this, my usual 'trick' was to make the thumbnail the shows title, it seems a shame for it not to be incorporated when there are other features that are available but just not used!

4.0 out of 5 stars This could be Sanyo, 19 Nov. 2006
Having previously owned a sanyo dvd recorder I could not help noticing that some of the worst features of the Sanyo has been taken over by Philips. The machine so far has been ok although I am not happy with the fact that it does not give you an option regarding initializing discs which will mean that in time it will not instantly recognise an already recorded disc and go straight into initialising thereby erasing a dvd.

Like the Sanyo this machine will not allow you to record on any disc that has already been recorded on another machine. The disc menu only shows three titles at a time, again just like Sanyo, but the most annoying feature shared with the Sanyo is the lack of any display in the video mode as to how much recording time is left on a tape,A feature that was standard on the later VCR machines.There was one feature that surprised me and that was the fact that it was not possible to pause recording in dubbing mode, but then i discovered by trial and error that the append disc feature works in the dubbing mode on this machine, which at last is a plus NOT Like the Sanyo.

5.0 out of 5 stars What is missing, 9 July 2006
This review is from: Nothing Comes Easy (Audio CD)
Having obtained Cliff Richard's singles collection and found certain tracks missing I was waiting to find what has been left out of this Sandie Shaw compilation. The answer is NOTHING... The obscure early seventies stuff is there like Show Your Face and Wight Is Wight which although they were released on the Pye label never made it to earlier compilations. As a small critisism it would have been nice to have heard Sandies versions of Its In His Kiss and Downtown [neither included- but then why should they have been!!] GREAT SET
