Don't miss a thing with the Philips Freeview+ HD PVR. Designed to easily record all your favourite high definition TV shows, with one-touch recording, twin tuners to record while watching something else, series recording, the HDT8520 is equipped with a 3-hour time shift buffer to enable you to pause live TV or make an Instant Jump or Instant Replay at the touch of a button.

The stunning design of this Freeview+ HD recorder includes a sophisticated light feature that can be activated when the device is switched on. 8-day coverage of the Freeview Programme Guide (EPG) has been integrated in a slick, sophisticated user interface for easy navigation.

Not only equipped with top-notch sound & vision technology (Dolby Digital audio & 1080p video quality with HDMI cable included), the HDT8520 also boasts remarkably low power consumption in both active and standby modes and has been designed to function almost silently.
