1.0 out of 5 stars User interface is appalling, 15 Sept. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I brought this machine having used a TiVo 10 years ago and my expectation was that it would be at least as good as 10 year old technology.

This machine is a joke and has the following major flaws (as well as several minor ones) to my mind any of these would make the machine unusable:
1) In delayed viewing viewing mode there is no EPG even if the delay is only 2 seconds!
2) There is no simple way (no way at all?) to cancel a recording once it has started.
3) To pause catch up with live TV are simple opperations but once caught up to truly get back to live tv is a 3 or 4 button operation! Should just happen. By the time you have done that you have missed even more stuff. 1) makes this even worse.
4) There is no way to convert a paused recording into an archived recording. “keep it and watch tomorrow!”
5) There is no simple way to pause a program being recorded, you have to go to stored recordings and play it to do that.

2.0 out of 5 stars WARNING Abridged version., 3 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very disappointed with this, its an abridged version with a lot of the original text missing so far as I can see. If I had wanted someone to shorten the original version then this could be the version I wanted, but why would you give your child something less than the real thing?

The pictures are all very well, but I dont want a dumbed down version thank you.

I shall be returning this.
