Hot:thumbsup:

Good price sonygeezer :)

Looks good -- as far as I know this is the same as the (Sony-manufactured) TVonics DVR-150 but rebadged. I don't think it's possible to record two programmes at once, just record one and watch another -- however I've read many reports that this is an extremely solid unit so if you're not concerned about dual recording then this looks like a winner.

Hi, Think that this is a TVOnics product. Not sure whether or not they're considered to be good PVRs but think that Aldi have been selling these as Tevion products also. Anyway, £74.99 for a Twin-Tuner 160Gb PVR seems a good price. Voted hot.

The following URL is an interesting read, particularly the fact that this DVB-T PVR consumes little power:-

HTH.

No StoneDwarf - I think you're getting confused by Argos selling two DIFFERENT ranges of Wharfedale badged PVRs.

There is this ONE model by itself that's a badged item - see above - which is NOT part of the model range with TWIN tuner & twin record.

There there are FOUR models in a different family with TWIN tuners/record that are with/without HDMI-upscaling and 160/250GB - eg 5321234 is the HDMI/160GB model I'm watching out for - and as you say the two HDMI models are still hiding from customers!

This is a great price. Been looking for a cheap PVR for a while with 160gb harddrive and a twin tuner.
#8
I reeeeeeeeally fancy this, I bet if I leave it till after work they'll all be gone.... decisions.
#9
nice price but the box looks ugly
#10
This is gonna sound stupid but... What is it supposed to do?:oops:

I'd reserve one anyway - if you change your mind, you'll not be charged. :)

Its a Freeview box, with a hard drive for recording from the TV to watch back later - It also has Sky+ type functions - such as 'pausing' live TV. It has twin tuners, so you can watch one channel whilst recording another - but you can only record one channel at a time. You will be able to set it to record using the onboard programme guide, so you can, for example, set it to record the whole of a favourite series. Hope this helps :)

This does help- given rep! So would one of these be better than getting a dvd recorder? This doesn't upscale tho, and I will be buying a LCD HDTV soon.

Some extra info here if your thinking of buying one.

This should playback in the same quality as it records - it won't upscale, but personally I think this is a load of hype anyway - I can't really notice that much difference on my upscaling DVD player and HD TV. I would go for one of these over a DVD recorder for the convenience of it - just be aware that it has a few niggly bugs (see review linked above), and it won't be doing anything fancy like HD recording/playback. For £70 it looks like a good deal to me.
#16
Great price, voted hot but IMO another £15 gets you a better deal (and delivered to your door) the Thomson PVR from John Lewis. Similar spec, 2 year warranty as standard and the ability to record 2 channels at the same time, which, to me, is a big selling point.
#17
Damn....I want one of these...and a 22" TFT for my PC....this website just makes me want to spend money. :-(
#18
Looks a good deal but in the specs it doesn't say it is Freeview. Is this any good for me as I have regular terresstial and Freesat?
#19
Can you record Virgin / NTL with 1 of these bad boys?
#20
Does it include Freeview? Anyone know? Thanks
#21
#22
Thanks for the link. I found this at the foot of the specs.

Please note:
This product is designed to record Freeview channels received via a terrestrial aerial.
This product will not record Satellite, Cable or any other external video sources.

Woahh, exactly the same remote as supplied with the Thomson DTR. :?

Fantastic price for a brilliant PVR. Very user friendly and looks cool as it's very small.

I bought mine for just under £190 :-( about 4 months ago and I've been delighted with it. It's really simple to set up and use and recently received a 5star rating in What HiFi, Sound and Vision. The remote control looks really cool and is programmable to use other equipment such as DVD player, and TV.

Defintely pay the extra for 3 year warranty as its only £13.99. It could well break down in that time so they will have to refund.

Hi all

I really want this, but I already have Sony Bravia 40'' KDL40U2000U Freeview HD Ready Widescreen LCD TV that already has freeview, does the PVR freeview disable the sonys freeview. Sorry for the stupid question, I am a noob at theses things

You can use both. Consider the Sony inbuilt freeview tuner as an analogue one. Just connect the PVR to a scart socket at the back of your set & select that input to watch.

An excellent remote it is too. This is TVonics standard remote.
#31
At the mo I don't have a TV ariel so forced into Sky (£20.00 for 3 years) to receive terrestial + the rest.

When I move (4 weeks) there is an ariel.

Since I have NEVER had freeview, I was thinking about getting this but can anyone tell me, is this better than the sky package. Is reception better/as good.

Until recently freeview reception was sketchy in these parts (SS2) so am I better off with Sky, I wonder?

of course it does.

Rizla01...

Freeview strength depends on where you live & the type of aerial you have. In general Sky will always provide a better quality picture due to the much larger bandwidth they have to play with.... hence the huge choice of channels.

Of course in a few years the strength of Freeview will rise dramaticaly as analogue gets progressively switched off.

Couldn't agree more, excellent quality...and suspiciously like the remote supplied with that Antipodean billionaire's box of tricks. :-D
#36
Does anybody know for sure if you can record a whole series of programs (eg Heroes) without having to select each episode individually?
#37
Oh this looks good. Just a pity Freeview ain't got much variety!
#38
Regarding Freeview signal and channels, some models cope far better then others (even from the same manufacture). Therefore some models will give you all the freeview channels while others will struggle to give you one.

Does anybody know how good this one is in week signal areas?

As to Sky, totally agree with other comments. Sky gives better picture and far more channel.

No you have to select each episode individually.
Just went and bought one from argos all seems good so far.
