1.0 out of 5 stars Don't even think about it., 29 Nov. 2011
This review is from: Goodmans 500GB Freeview Digital DTR Recorder (Electronics)
This thing is total rubbish. The remote only works when it feels like it, then without warning the unit will erase all recordings. We consequently performed all the software updating, format hardive etc, then it did it again. It quite often did not record programs, reasons unknown. We only got this model because previously we had a Humax ( not the HD model) which was equally hideous in operation and consistant freezing. Anyway if anyone can recommend a HD PVR please advise, but for goodness sake stay away from this machine.

My first digi box was a Bush--tried 2..both easy to use but kept freezing.. returned both and tried a hitachi.. this was terrible. then swopped for a humax.. remote not as straightforward but didnt freeze.. just that after 2 months it stopped working.. So, for the last 6 months I have had a sagemcom.. No problems as yet. Remote a bit small. I want another for upstairs now. So I would recommend Sagemcom..
