I have had one of these for over a year and have been very pleased with it. As I paid £150 this seems a good deal to me with a 1 year warranty.

The Digifusion FVRT200 is an enhanced Digital Video Recorder (DVR). Along with the extensive features of Digifusion's FVRT100, the upgraded version boasts an impressive 80Gb Hard Drive with the capacity to store, using SCT, over 80 hours of programming. The unit will also provide a 14 day EPG, so you can plan your viewing and recording for the two weeks ahead. Recording has never been easier-scheduled recordings can be set up to two weeks in advance.

STANDARD FEATURES:

Combined Digital Terrestrial Receiver and Digital Video Recorder,
Stores and playback over 80 hours of programming in digital quality using SCT on it's 80Gb HDD.
Super Compression Technology (SCT) is Digifusion's new technology that enables a DVR to deliver the maximum record time-comparable products with similar hard disk sizes can only achieve a fraction of the recording time available on the FVRT200,
Watch one Digital TV Channel whilst recording another,
Twin Tuner - records 2 channels simultaneously whilst watching a previous recording.
Pause and Rewind Live TV - automatically records last 30 minutes of what you are watching,
Using the 14 Day EPG you can set recordings up to two weeks in advance with access to all digital TV, radio and interactive services available.

Also a good deal on the FVRT100 at £35.21

Anyone got one? This seems a good deal.

it's been hovering around a slightly lower pricetag for about a year or thereabouts, frequently dropping in and out of stock.
I believe this model went out of production some time ago (somebody correct me if I'm wrong) and as these are refurbished units I do sometimes wonder where they manage to find repeat stock :w00t:
Have one myself and am very pleased with it. Even bought one for my old dear.
Full range of Microdirect's Digifusion PVRs burried in this post (shucks, that just happens to be mine :-D).

i bought exactly the same model from microdirect 8 months ago...started well but after few days it wont start from standby unless you unplug it and then plug it again which was pain...3 months later it forze completely and it wont do anything...returned it to microdirect and to be fair to them they refunded my money (minus £5... probably for the 3 months use)...remember you have to pay for return postage....my advice ....AVOID

I v'e got one of these had it for about 6 months. Works ok but can be a bit slow changing menus. Freeview picture ok but I have just bought a panasonic tv with built in freeview and there is a bit diffencnce in both picture quality and speed it moves around the menus. I never realised that there was a differnce with diffent freview tuners. Its ok for aound £50 but as with everything like this you get what you pay for.

I've got two of them, excellent for what they do, however time has moved on, if you are serious about getting a PVR, get something with freeview playback for series link etc.

I would rather have this digifusion than one of those thomson boxes.But things have moved on as bendo said.Ive only tried this digifusion (excellent) and the thomson(nightmare) and now have a humax which is brilliant but is £150 new.

Series link is available on some Digifusion models via modified firmware, although not sure if it is this model. Series link firmware I believe sacrifices some of the 7day EPG, but somebody with more precise knowledge can hopefully advise.

I had the FVRT100 which I liked but it packed-up after 8 months by which time I'd had a VERY good poke around inside and voided warranty.

On advice elsewhere I replaced it with an FVRT150 from Micro Direct and do recommend it highly. Just the same as the other model but doesn't get so hot, is QUIETER and has not hung once yet (only 1 month in mind). May get another for a family member.

I find it so easy to use that I'm happy to take the gamble as to how long it wll last. These PVR's seem generally unreliable anyway..

I bought a Sony HXD770 DVDR/PVR and the on-screen display said to back-up to DVD frequently as the HD will fail at some point or other! I never use the Sony as the OSD & controls totally suck. And it does not rewind live telly like these Digifusions which automatically record the last 1/2 hour of whatever you watch so you can go back, or even record the whole thing from the beginning when you're half-way through watching. By pressing Record button ONCE.
What. A. Doddle.

I would suggest the ideal setup would be a DVDR with hard disk plus an FVRT150. You could then edit and record to dvd freeview programs and external material to share with family and friends. These Digifusions do not record from external sources.
