Confirmed purchaser mrs average, computer literate

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
The fact that I can record and play back TV programmes is a feat in itself. So it has to be easily logical. Well done.
Bad points:
Copying from hard drive to disk and copying is listed as dubbing which is very confusing for someone not educated in thye technical language and it took me a year to find out how to do it. It still is a bit tricky and not always reliable.
