Most helpful reviews

Lee, Edinburgh

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Ease of use, good picture quality. Quiet operation.
Bad points:
Tuner not as sensitive as my Sagem freeview box so need to use that for some channels. When freeview box is connected to AV2 it "takes over" the picture so you have to switch it (the freeview box) off to be able to see some of the controls eg recording mode. Blue HDD light a bit on the bright side. 100-page manual well written but a bit daunting for technophobes I should think....

Score 5.0/10
Good points:
Easy to use.
Bad points:
You cannot choose a channel when using the programme guide. You have to come out of the guide and use the ok button.

I have only had the unit 3 months and the power has completely failed.

Manufacturer's Description

Enjoy complete control of your TV time. With Freeview Playback, One Touch Pause Live TV, FlexTime and an 8-day TV guide, your favourite TV programmes are always at your fingertips – to watch when you want, without missing a thing.

HDMI 1080p upscales to high definition for sharper pictures

HDMI 1080p upscaling delivers images that are crystal clear. Movies in standard definition can now be enjoyed in true high definition resolution – ensuring more details and more true-to-life pictures. Progressive Scan (represented by “p” in “1080p”) eliminates the line structure prevalent on TV screens, again ensuring relentlessly sharp images. To top it off, HDMI makes a direct digital connection that can carry uncompressed digital HD video as well as digital multi-channel audio, without conversions to analogue – delivering perfect picture and sound quality, completely free from noise.

One Touch Pause Live TV freezes the action instantly

Pause Live TV puts you in absolute control. Once the recorder is turned on, a large built-in memory automatically starts recording the programme you are watching — allowing you to pause, replay or save the programme, anytime. When you need to take a break, you can pause your “live” TV programme with just one touch of a button and resume watching when it suits you.

Integrated Freeview tuner and analogue TV reception

With a hybrid TV tuner, you can watch any programme — whether it is a digital or analogue broadcast. While the broadcast industry makes its transition to digital, the hybrid TV tuner lets you watch analogue transmissions now, and any up and coming digital ones. You receive seamless entertainment — now and into the future.
