Good points:
I can record one programm and watch another and pause live tv
Bad points:
It locks up sometimes when you change channels also no sound out only optical which means i have to buy a new surround sound system,it also would help if it put a time bar up when you change channels to let you know what was on now and next without having to put the epg on
