I wasn't expecting a lot from this. It's only a pound or so more expensive than the cheapest DTV boxes, but claims to offer the extra feature of recording too. I must say I'm pleasantly surprised. It records onto SD card or pen drive, with the 16GB card I've put in allowing up to around 13 hours of very high quality playback.

It needs a bit of careful setting up to get it recording properly. To record, you have to switch the epg into weekly mode by pressing the green button, then select the programme you want to record by pressing select. This takes you into the Timer sub menu, where for some odd reason the default action is just to wake up the box for the programme you have selected. If you move down the menu to 'wake-up' and cycle through til the display shows 'Recorder', then press Select, the box shows a message to say it's been updated. This actually means the recording has been scheduled. Thankfully these settings are then saved, so future recordings are simple.

You can schedule up to 7 recordings, providing there's enough space on your card. The box needs to be left on to record, but obviously not the TV.

It records in mpeg2 format, and once the recording is on the card it can be played back from the DTV box, or in any other device (PC, DVD player) which has a USB input. It also means you can archive programmes by simply copying them onto your PC from the card and either saving them to hard disk or copying them onto DVD.

It's tiny, so is very unobtrusive, and comes with a remote contol breakout and small but usable remote control. No batteries supplied so grab a couple of AAAs before delivery. It's simple to plug in and it collects all the available channels easily.

Great product. Used this device to convert my CRT TV (which had a scart socket) in my bedroom to a digital TV (since the analogue channels have been switched off).

TV reception is good quality. Especially like the record function which allows you to record to a USB pen drive. This device is also excellent for viewing pictures/images on your TV as the quality of the images is better than what I seem to get on my computer.

The device does seem to freeze occasionally (ie the picture on the TV freezes) and you have to turn this device off at the plug socket and on again to resolve.
I haven't worked out why this happens but think it might be when you get fast moving images (like in a music video or a football game).

The size of this device is small so if you are pushed for space in your TV cabinet this device is ideal as it takes up a small amount of space.

The remote for the TV is ergonomic. There is a zoom function so you can zoom in (at different levels) to the program you are watching.

For the price this is excellent.

You don't get a scart lead with the device but at the price this is it shouldn't be an issue (a scart lead is only a few quid or you might have one lying around your house anyway).

Bought this as a cheap option for very occasional use in the kitchen. On the plus side it is small, but everything else is on the minus side:
- the instructions left a lot to be desired
- the series record did not work, in fact it frequently failed to record a single programmed recording, especially if it was entered a few days in advance. Overall, programmed recordings failed more often that not.
- the signal has to go through the unit so it has to be left on permanently, and whenever the TV is switched on it defaults to the unit via the AV1 input
- it occasionally failed to recognise the SD card even though it was left in permanently, until the card was reformatted

Persevered for a while (until much too late to return it) but have now given up and dumped it.

Ok for mobile channel receiver, but doesn't receive stationed satellite dishes. No product limitation is given in the package. Good recorder though for its money.

Very good freeview recorder, had initial problems with setup & recordings but all resolved with the help of seller.Very good value for the price and crystal clear recordings from tv on usb stick and sdcard. Please note it will record on standby mode to sd card but not usb stick, you need to leave the unit on.
Once again brilliant item

I like it, but it's a little frustrating to set a timer for it to record. You go to weekly mode, select the channel you want to record, use the guide to navigate to the program to press record...... Ah, it takes FOREVER for the guide to update to any show on at a later time than the programs currently on. This means, say it's Wednesday and you want to set a timer for it to record something on Saturday - you go to that day and time and sit patiently forever for the blank box to finally update to the show you want so you can press record on it.... When it finally happens, you press record it sets the recording, but you also have to set a start time - easy enough, show starts at 21:00, so I'll set the box to 20:55 - Now, what what should be next is "End Time" but what it actually says is "Duration Time", so it wants the duration of the recording? I'm trying to figure out. First attempt only recorded 4 minutes of a show. I wish it was like the Sky guide in that it's quick and you press record on a show and that's it, that show will be recorded. That's my only complaint about it - it records well, the channels are good quality. It would be great to have some extra outputs, like HDMI and USB, but I guess these aren't essential. I hope I get the timer record thing sorted. Thankfully there is the "weekly record" option, so if I can just get it right the first time, hopefully that's the last time I'll have to set it to record the shows I want lol

Overall I do really like it, it's the only one I could see that enables you to record (successfully) to USB & SD cards. I hope the technology advances with better menus and software that loads faster in the future and some more outputs.
I'd buy it again without a doubt.
