Does what it's supposed to
on 25 August 2010
I bought this to replace a Daewoo DSD9503T; not because the old unit had any faults but because the wife asked for the ability to transfer recordings onto USB drive for playback on a laptop.
Operation of the Sagem box is much the same as most average PVRs with electronic program guide (EPG), recordings library and a bucket load of menus to run the machine in different ways; all expected functions are there and they work, although menu navigation can be a little slow. The transfer of recordings to USB drive works perfectly: transferred recordings are in a .ts format which media players like VLC can playback without any problems. The only disappointment was the Freeview+ Series Link function which seems to be hit and miss with regards to recording at the right times, although I think this has more to do with the TV companies failing to provide accurate data for the PVR to use. A good buy.
