Sold out already. :(

I take it you didn't read the bit about "Please note as before it states out of stock until midday today." then........

It's the same for every one of their Saturday 'offers'.

Postage will be about £6-7, if usual, for a refurbed unit with 3 month warranty. Hopefully they are of better quality than the one's they sold recently (without the disc drives)
#3
if this item uses the same firmware as the infamous "build-your-own" Bigpockets PVR, there are many reports of serious issues rendering the item almost unuseable.
maybe someone with some specific knowlegde can contribute?

For info on it - if it's a record 1 , watch 1 receiver then it will be the 1602 model which is a rebadged Goodmans.

Common problems: Power supply and mainboard failures.. Software failures with "no signal" appearing and locking box after changing channel etc.

Bigpockets "refurbished" items are not refurbished they are 2nd hand you'd be as well going to your local boot fair and buying

Apparently it's a 1622 model (according to a post on the dvdforums) which is one of the better ones.

Got this last time it was posted (About 2 weeks ago). Works OK as long as I don't put it into standby if I do it loses the channel signals and I have to then turn the power off for a couple of seconds and then it works fine again.

dont bother with these cheap PVR's - i bought a graded Digifusion FVRT100 from Microdirect last year for £40 and it is continually breaking (luckily it has a 12m warranty) A google search reveals plenty of others in the same boat. MD always have graded cheap PVR's. The reason is they are total sh1te - AVOID!!! :x

I think mrtea has it wrong.

Hard disks spin down when not in use and use little power.

I'm afraid there are far too many negative reviews of this product to consider these "refurbs" a good deal. Remember they are probably the ones other people rejected.

Can't stress how much you should avoid this product. I have a Thomson which works a million times better than this but is far from perfect. I don't know if there is a perfect PVR out there at the moment - at least not one under a hundred quid

PVRs that do not go into standby mode use a lot more power than ones that do becuase they are on all the time. I have a power reader and I tested several. For example the tvonics one standby used far less than one that never went into standby mode. Hard disks in PVRs with out standby modes rarely spin down and even when they do they are still active and not really off.
