Sorry but no,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Goodmans 320GB Freeview Digital DTR Recorder (Electronics)
I have to agree with the mainly bad reviews on the site.
It does set itself up easily and finds all channels but there is something seriously wrong with its internal timer. Programmes that you want to tape are often ignored while others on series link are recorded on every channel that mentions the title.
What makes me think the internal timer is at fault is that if you're going through the guide and see a programme that you want to watch that's on at the moment, if you press enter it asks you if you want to set a reminder for the programme instead of just turning over. It literally doesn't know what day or time it is! If you key in the channel and press record it does so, (although with some films you get the one that you want and half of the next one because it seems to be guessing about the time!).
I would send it back but I just wanted a cheap box for our caravan so that when the English summer does what it usually does and we're stuck inside trying to find something good to watch on live tv (hah!) we'd have at least some recording to watch.
It can pause live tv but can't rewind so the advert's a bit misleading.
If I'd bought this for a main box it would have gone back after a day.
