Tieqiang, London Technophobe

Score 5.0/10
Good points:
Receive other satellite channels in addition to FreeSat
Bad points:
Difficult to use compared with SKY box. The most important bad point is that there is picture-in-picture view of the current TV when viewing TV guide etc.

Stephen, Aylesbury Home cinema enthusiast

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Ability to record 2 programmes at once.
Design & build quality.
Audio & Visual quality is excellent when viewing recorded programmes or dvd's.
Bad points:
The only one is the Electronic Programme Guide (EPG). Don't enter your post code when first setting up and you won't be troubled by unnecessary adverts on the EPG, just a blank grey box. Even this reduces the size of the EPG displayed on the TV screen, but with a large enough screen (mine is 32 inches - the screen that is!), you shouldn't be too troubled.

Manufacturer's Description

High Definition DVD Recorder with Twin HD Satellite Tuner compatible with Freesat+ and 250GB HDD

DIGA’s H.264 encoder compresses the recorded programmes at a lower bitrates but retain its high-definition resolution, which takes up less space on the disc without compromising on picture quality as much. The images are crisp and clear due to advanced compression technologies that are optimized to match each scene.

With more than 140 digital TV and radio channels to choose from it’s fairly likely that at some point you will want to record two programmes broadcast at the same time. The freesat+ Twin Tuner allows you the freedom to do this and offers a multitude of other viewing and recording options.

The 35-hour long time archiving in HM mode is also convenient for saving hard disk space. In HM mode, a maximum of 169 hours of high definition recording data can be save onto HDD (250GB).

DIGA becomes more convenient with addition of Rewind Live TV. On top of Pause Live TV which let you pause live TV programmes as if you are watching recorded programmes, Rewind Live TV will allow you to rewind live TV to the scene which you want to, upto 2 hours, so you won’t miss important moments. Rewind Live TV will be effective while channel stays the same. The function of Rewind Live TV does not work during simultaneous recording. For Pause Live TV, when 8 hours pass since the programme was recorded, the recording stops.

Using DLNA technology, Panasonic Blu-ray Disc players and home cinema systems can access files on the DLNA Server High Definition DVD Recorder DMR-XS380 or compliant PC. By simply connecting to Home Network (LAN), you can enjoy AVCHD, JPEG files and recorded programmes on your DIGA or AVCHD, WMV, and JPEG on your PC. Requires Windows 7 Operating System.
