Not quite all there - disappointing,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Sony VTX-D800U Freeview Digital TV Set Top Box (Accessory)
Having read all of the reviews - 5* mostly - and buying the box on all these glowing references, I am finally giving up on this annoying box & want to send it back.
Many minor niggles, and NO response from Sony tech support, despite several attempts.
7 day EPG - that's just not there - read the small print!
It wrecks the analog channels which feed through to the TV.
(so you can't video one channel & watch another - back to the stone age again)
DVD Recorder can't change channel, Sony can't set a timer - as it doesn't know what's on - so recordings fail 80% of the time, it's just not worth any more effort.
Just bought a Philips, and it's got the same Now & Next limitation, but at least it works with my DVD-recorder.
One day perhaps all these devices will work together, but for now - BEWARE!
