Score 10.0/10
Good points:
It is so simple to programme the DVD to record something, just click on the compehensive listings what you want to record and that's it!
Bad points:
Instructions are not always that simple to follow. If you are recording then you can't watch a different Freeview programme at the same time through the DVD unit.

Score 1.0/10
Good points:
Reviewer left no comment
Bad points:
It is complicated to operate. Once I managed to record programmes I discovered that when I clicked OK on the required programme it recorded the previous programme. I shall never buy any electrical item on line as there is no satisfactory help line. I used the phone number for help but the person who replied was unable to help.
