  • did not allow programmed recording of BBC HD Channels. Fan pretty noisy

  • Bought 2 of these one for living room and one for upstairs. The one in the living room has had loads of problems. It tells you you have a conflict when recording only one channel which means you have to watch what you are recording. The HD sound on BBC has stopped working. The screen flashes black sometimes and needs switching off to reset it. It regularly misses the start of a programme or the end. All of this in 8 days! I have informed Maplin who have been brilliant and offered an exchange. I will see how the next one goes. On the positive side set up is great (2 minutes) very easy to use (when working) and the picture in SD is very sharp even on channels like ITV4. The HD picture is stunning (just be nice to have sound as well). As said the other box has performed very well.

  • As with many similar products it appears to have been launched without proper testing. It's menu system is easy to use, picture quality is excellent and when they have sorted the problems it will be good, but at the moment it has some serious problems.

    It frequently randomly records programmes that have not been selected, and also sometimes records the same programme in multiple Regions. The latter causes conflicts because both tuners are tied up and so produces warning pop-ups because it doesn't know what to do.
