1st one sent back as it didn't record scheduled programmes from the guide, Intermittent surround sound on HD channels and also BBC iplayer and Lovefilm are not available yet even though the logos for both are all over the packaging. Will update this once I have received the replacement unit. Amazon were fantastic in re-ordering the items & rearranging collection of the faulty unit. I only hope Samsung can redeem themselves with the second unit. Fingers crossed.

Update. Right 2nd unit arrived, this one is now working! Much better. Still no BBC iplayer or lovefilm apps, hopefully this will happen in a update.

Update 2. BBC iplayer and lovefilm apps now added. Still pleased.

I returned my unit as faulty. There was a known problem with setting up a scheduled recording -it simply didn't work- and Samsung were not able to give me a time scale for when the fix would be available. It's possibly available now, but I thought it was a fundamental feature of the box and without it the unit was of little use to me. I was able to record a programme fine if I was watching it but that kind of defeated the object of having the box.

Other than that, I thought it was fantastic and would have loved to have kept it. I figured that I might buy it again later and who knows the price might have come down by then. I guess that's a downside of me wanting to have the latest technical thingy.

The TV tuner was excellent and had a sharper stronger signal than programmes watched directly through the tuner in the TV, so that's a plus side if you're in a weak signal area or have a TV with a mediocre tuner.

The other thing I wanted to be able to do is watch streamed content (videos/photos) from my windows homeserver on the same network. Unfortunately, to do that you have to install Samsung's own AllShare software on the actual Homeserver. Something I didn't want to do because of the inherent risk. So of rthe time being I've stuck with my old Xtreamer Sidewinder to do the streaming and using BT Vision for the PVR.

I'd welcome the thoughts from anyone who has an update to the problems I experienced with the STB-7900. I haven't ruled out buying it again when it works properly.

I'm no gadget geek, merely an averagely competent computer user, so I was a little apprehensive about buying what is in my book quite a sophisticated piece of equipment with a wide range of capabilities, particularly the functions available through link to the internet and to my computer. I am delighted and massively impressed that in a few days I have been able to access all the functions I want to use with relatively little difficulty.
My tv is a 26'' Samsung LCD which is only HD ready so I knew I would not get the full HD effect, nevertheless the picture is a massive improvement in clarity, sharpness and depth and I am very pleased with that. Recording 2 programmes at once is an important feature as we are catering for a range of ages in the household and that works fine. I can confirm that it is possible to start watching a programme that has not completed recording, something we like to do often, particularly so we can fast forward throught the commercials.
The only criticism is that the layout of the guide and the processes for recording and deleting are very hard work indeed and it must be possible to improve this. I am comparing with a 7 year old Panasonic dvd recorder which we had been using which was really simple to navigate around. However, a small price to pay for such an otherwise excellent product.
My main problem in setting up was getting the connection to my broadband hub wifi to work. But I found out eventually, after some helpful advice from Samsung customer support, that I needed to resite the hub to the room that the unit is in, probably because our house is an old cottage with very thick walls and the unit sits in an oak cabinet. I think this was a problem specific to our house and not a problem with the unit.

*UPDATE* Jan 2013. Since recent software update RF loop-through no longer works in standby mode. Also still lacks ability to rewind without enabling "Time-shift" mode first. I had thought this would have been enabled by a firmware update by now! i have also recently noticed that occasionally programs fail to record. Can't recommend this product at this time until these problems are resolved and have reduced star rating accordingly.

I had been looking at this for a while and was a bit put off by some of the negative reviews but eventually took the plunge when found a cheap one on Amazon Warehose. Usual super fast delivery from Amazon.

The box itself was a breeze to set up. I must admit I'm a bit geeky and love fiddling with settings etc, Nevertheless, it couldn't have been easier to set up the basic functions. It connected wirelessly immediately and took about 5 minutes to download updates via wireless connection. After some reviews about the absence of certain Apps, I can confirm that BBC iplayer, lovefilm, Netflix , YouTube and Acetrax (not an exhaustive list) are all present and work fine (lovefilm is the only one I can't confirm as I don't have an account with them). As a Freeview recorder it works very well, with slick features and pop up screen info telling you when a recording is about to start or finish and asking whether you want to check that programme info times haven't altered (I have never checked and so far has not missed anything). It has the ability to easily edit recorded programmes to cut advert breaks out of films etc ( a really easy to use and neat app IMO but I suspect as it loses it's novelty I will probably just FF these bits).
