Toshiba freeview HD recorder,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Toshiba HDR5010KB 500GB Freeview+ HD Digital TV Recorder (Electronics)
I searched around for a competitively priced freeview recording device and to keep up with modern tech decided HD would future proof it.
I saw some good reviews for this Toshiba HDR5010KB with a 500gb drive from amazon and assorted sites which meets the basic functions , reliability and HD capability I Initially needed, then what more specifically attracted me was the ability to plug in two other HDMI connected devices which where then selectable through the Toshiba remote and the ability to hide and show channels and rearrange them to my preference.
When it arrived It plugged up and started at the speed I would expect and was easy enough to get used to using then tailor to my needs , with my Sony SMP-N100 Internet TV box plugged through it and my PC connection as well I am now fully centralized with all my media devices and can put away the TV remote .......
The only two issues I have had with this box is over the month Ive had it the box has frozen twice when moving channels on the guide screen which was resettable with a shutdown, and the other issue very minor is the auto standby function doesn't seem to recognize I am actually watching the TV and can shut down mid viewing so I have unfortunately had to turn that function off.
All in all an excellent device with a very friendly and customizable set of features with only a couple of minor niggles which I am sure could be put right with a software update.
