4.0 out of 5 stars "BRILLIANT" - when set up!, 26 Oct. 2008
This review is from: Sony RDR-HXD890 Freeview+ 160GB Hard Disc Drive DVD Recorder - Black (Electronics)
I can now appreciate the comments from the person who found the instruction manual confusing and not easy to follow. I am sorry to say that after approx 5hrs I gave up and asked for advice from a relative who is a computer expert! and owns the same machine. He had it running in approx 30mins, but what he did was not in the manual in the same form at all. Despite this problem the unit is great and is so easy to use with excellent quality on HDD copying and DVD playing.The fact that you cant record one Freeview channel and watch another is a pain but this is because there is only one Freeview Tuner.In this case you need a TV with Freeview and then simply change the input from HDMI to ARIEL and watch whatever you like until you want to use the HDD/DVD recorder again in which case you change the input back to HDMI.
