Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Digital Stream DHR8203U Freeview+ HD, 320GB HDD, 3 x USB, Set-top box with CI Slot (Electronics)
It's unlikely you will be in the market for a 2 year old model but just in case, mine is now 20 months old and has arbitrarily decided to stop recording series links - some work some don't. There is no software update available so now I have an unreliable, once quite expensive unit.
So I am back in the market and quite glad for it, because despite the excellent picture quality, the Digitalstream's downsides became annoying, for example:
* Rewind live TV only works if you pause it first - and will only rewind to that pause-point
* Remote control slow response
* Can't trim recordings or adverts
* Regular system crash and picture freeze
* No on air system updates
Be cautioned. Over twice the price but the Panasonic DMR-HW220EBK looks the business.
