Roger, Bristol

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Efficient on power consumption
Does the job required
Bad points:
Prefers DVD-RW to DVD+RW, so if you want to copy from HD to DVD+RW it will only copy at normal speed.

Not such a friendly user interface such as Sony

Julie, Barnsley Bought for practical means.

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Easy to set up and easy to use, simple to set up timer recording. We bought it to tape tv programmes and watch DVDs so fits the bill
Bad points:
When updating channels all timers are removed. A bit mad. Our previous DVD recorder, a Sony, just updated channels on its own without wiping out pre set recordingd

Peter, I hate adverts

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Very easy to edit recordings and transfer from HDD to DVD
Bad points:
Recording on timer cannot be relied on. Particularly if set ahead for early morning. The unit turns itself off overnight and doesn't turn on for the recording. I have missed two 7a.m. programmes due to this strange effect.

Manufacturer's Description

DIGA DVD Recorder with 250GB HDD & Freeview+

By interpolating video data using proprietary algorithms, SD format data is up-converted to 1080 × 1920p HD format video data. This conversion to HD format increases the richness of the original data by approximately six fold, and produces the highest possible image quality when viewing content on a large-screen HDTV.

Enjoy watching crisper and sharper video enabled by detailed reproduction of content on DVD and Hard disk drive. Colour reproduction that is faithful to the original picture, produces colourful in details

Auto Preset Down Load Connect a DIGA DVD recorder to your VIERA TV via an HDMI cable, and the TV channel setting information is automatically downloaded to the DIGA recorder. Direct TV Rec. If you want to record the program you’re watching, you can start immediately by pressing the VIERA Link button on the VIERA remote control and selecting “Direct TV Rec.” on the VIERA Link menu screen. Pause Live TV Pause Live TV lets you freeze TV programmes just like pausing a DVD, by selecting “Pause Live TV” on the VIERA Link Menu.

Data from music CDs and USB devices can be easily transferred to DIGA’s hard disk drive. It supports gracenote®, so titles and artist names are automatically saved together with the music CD data. It also supports the ID3Tag and WMA-Tag title information that is embedded in music data. The DIGA is like a jukebox filled with your favourite music.

Enjoy watching memorable photos (JPEG 1080×1920 pixels) recorded on to various media (SD memory card, HDD, CD-R/-RW, DVD-R/-RW, USB) in a slideshow with your favourite music.
