Daewoo DSD9503T - SET TOP BOX + 160GB HDD - £129.99 delivered @ ebuyer. Any better choice? Although I have a Freeview box, I prefer to have freeview + recording combined to save space.

Any help much appreciated :thumbsup:

I will recommend the Digihome PVR 160.Very easy to use & very reliable (after 3 months usage).
Also, now on offer at Argos for £100 :thumbsup:

Think I'll go with khakidrill's sugg. £100 for 160GB HDD + Freeview cant be bad. I've a £5 voucher + using Argos card will spread payments over 3 months, interest free. Thanks khakidrill :thumbsup:

Don't think you'll regret it but with Agos's customer service attitude any problems should be resolved OK

Went for PVR160 from Argos :)

Had a few issues
1. Couldn’t record Channel 5 or Five Live or Five US. Screen freezes immediately.
2. How do I connect satellite receiver to PVR? Can I record satellite channels (Hot Bird) ?

Advise please?
#8
No you can`t use satellite receiver or cable through a freeview PVR software not compatible
Only other way is a system without freeview. either DVD recorder or Harddrive without freeview

Thanks v2drinkers :)

Any cheap HDD recorders around?
#11
Thanks v2drinkers :)

Will this be suitable for recording satellite channels? BTW, got rid off the frozen screen issues with software update.

Some of the reviews state it can record off the scart input So I would say yes.
Glad you got rid of the screen freeze


Wish I'd waited :)

Nevertheless, Argos deal was a special Bank holiday offer - went up to £130 today.

Had a hellish week sorting out the problems with Argos's Digihome PVR160. Frozen screen and loss of sound on play back were alternating all the time and finally the PVR160 found its way back to Argos today (kind suggestion from the manufacturer).

V2drikers suggested Eltax 160GB HDD recorder from ebuyer as the alternative to record via SCART. Is this suitable for Sky and other sateellite channels via Hotbird ?

Thanks :)
