Purchaser Home cinema enthusiast

Score 4.0/10
Good points:
User interface is good but slow. It is easy to use.
Bad points:
Until 5 months ago I really liked this device appart from amount of fan and hard disk noise when room quiet.
I now need to replace this device as it keeps missing recordings, the channel list keeps going into a random sequence, sometimes I cannot manually record a program without total power off, and recordings have a lot of digital breakup.
Just hoping it will last until Humax bring out Freeview HD with on board recording.
