Manufacturer's Description

With the VIDEO Plus+ system, all you need to do to program your video recorder is to enter the 'Pluscode' a single code of up to nine digits (but usually less) that is printed next to each TV program in most TV guides.

Simply plug in your device to the USB port on your Philips DVD system. Your digital music and photos will be played directly from the device. Now you can share your favourite moments with family and friends.

High speed archiving lets you make a copy of a recording from Hard Disk to DVD in a fraction of the original recording time. Once the programme is stored on HDD you can copy it to DVD+R/RW at maximum speed.

Philips DVD Recorders support 'dual media' recording - the ability to create recordings on DVD+R/RW and DVD-R/RW discs. Now you can buy any disc and the Philips recorder will always create fully compatible recordings, which can be played by any DVD player.

Multi-format playability allows you to play most file formats for maximum listening and viewing pleasure, including MP3, WMA, JPEG and the popular DivX digital media format. DivX playback enables you to play and share compressed high quality DivX video content beyond your computer.

Also known as IEEE 1394 and FireWire. i.LINK is the worldwide standard for connecting digital video devices, used on digital home video equipment such as DV and D8 camcorders, as well as PCs. Conveniently, it carries all audio and video signals via a single cable.With i.LINK Digital Video input you can copy your home videos in their original digital picture quality.

With Instant Replay you are in control of exciting TV moments so you can enjoy a precious TV moment like a scene in a movie or football match again immediately, at the press of a button. The Hard Disk can play back any scene while continuing to record TV program.

A very large built-in memory records the program you are currently watching when you press the pause button. When it suits you, you can resume the program from the moment you pressed 'pause' as if you're watching a live program.

Well....... all the people who gave this rubbish reviews are talking absolute rubbish! some of the comments people made, like "the auto tuner dosent pick up sky" "you cant record this, you cant record that". that is a load of rubbish! they obviously just cant work the product so decided to give it a bad review to cover up their stupidity! this is a simple product to use, i am a 20year old lad who hasnt got a clue about electronics, and this took me no longer than half an hour to set up. so if your looking for a decent dvd recorder, this is the one for you.

Setting this up was very easy, attach the power and 2 other cables (aerial and scart). Once powered up it was very easy to configure with auto channel set up (with manual fine tune). What I really like about it is that the remote control and the user interface displayed on the TV screen are simple to follow. This is important mainly because other, let's say 'less technically-minded', family members will manage to master it. I am also going to use this to convert VHS and VCR recordings to DVD and have already managed to do this successfully. Incidentally, I bought this in the Czech Republic so it did not have an english language user guide book but this was fine because the item's setup interface on the TV screen was so easy to follow and in english.

I prefer machines that you do not have to read a large user manual to at least carry out some basic functions. This DVD HDD recorder falls easily into that category and yet, if you want, you can undertake some quite complex editing. Using the "Guide" function to see and set up recordings from the TV up to 7 days ahead is simplicity itself (though it took 24 hours from switching the DVD on for the first time for the Guide to be fully populated with TV programmes). As it comes with a separate Freeview tuner all available channels can be recorded with just a few simple key strokes on the handset. I've transferred several hours of camcorder VHS tapes to the HDD and burnt several DVDs to -RW quite easily.And with 5 hours of recording already on the HDD only 15% of the space has been used.

The unit itself was bigger than I expected but then I could of checked the dimensions before buying...I like it - it works well and does what Philips claim it will do. Good value.

I am very dissapointed with this purchase - generally works well BUT many programmes have "Copy Protected" and therefore cannot be recorded. One is not aware of which programmes are "Copy Protected" until you come to "Save" by which time you will have missed the very programme you wanted to record.I wonder if this applies to all HDD players. I am in the process of returning machine as I find its "NOT FIT FOR PURPOSE"

On the whole I've been pleased with my machine, it does however have a few very fustrating problems.

If you try to record a programme without using the timer (just pressing record on the machine) you more often than not get a message when you want to stop and save the recording that the recorded program contains 'protected' transmissons and it won't let you save it !!! Very very fustrating....but if you record the same program/channel using the timer it records no problem.... if you suddenly remember that there is something you wanted to record and its already started you have to program it in to make sure that it'll save it !!.

The timer function only allows you to enter a maximum of 8 programs (although you can set up weekly, daily, weekend, mon-fri options on each) but when you go away on holiday you very soon find out that you need more than 8 slots ! considering that you can record almost 400hrs on the disk it seems a bit strange that you are limited to 8 timer slots

The other problem I've had is that the remote control packed up after 5 months and when I contacted Philips for replacement under warranty they said I had to deal with the retailer of the unit, and that if the retailer couldn't/wouldn't help that they would SELL me a replacement for £30........ so much for a 1 year warranty.

I won't be buying another Philips product based on my experiences with this machine.

So you want to record TV? - Forget it! - Philips DVDR3460H will let you down time and time again. Out of 5 sessions 3 were failures - and it could get worse.

Reason? - Philips have set themselves up as some sort of `media police' and if the evenings transmission has just one `protected' program, the Philips DVDR3460H will delete the whole evenings recording!

So you want to record from DVD to hard disk? - Forget it! - After loosing the original tape of a holiday to Egypt, I still had a copy on DVD and wanted to copy a back up to hard disk - the Philips DVDR3460H does not copy from it's DVD to hard disk.

So you want to enjoy slow motion? - Forget it! - The Philips DVDR3460H `On Screen' display covers so much of the screen you will be lucky to see the pitch, let alone the ball!

There is no option to hide on screen displays during playback in `set up`.

The Philips DVDR3460H should not be sold until it has had a major software upgrade.

The sleek and good looking Philips DVDR3460H is let down badly by it's software.
