Quidco at 4% too

There is precisely zero real info on this online, one thread on Digital Spy says very little even, this model is available at about 135 quid elsewhere, so could be a great buy, or not!
Left me umming and ahhing a lot, as PVRs seem to have been the one most unreliable & unpredictable piece of electronics ever, but I would like to replace my single tuner machine I have in the bedroom, with a twin tuner model, at minimum expense!
#2
Looks interesting, shame there's nothing about it anywhere! From the Digital Spy forum it does look like it has a 14 day EPG... it's possibly a bargain... but then again.. possibly not...
#3
Well I have taken the plunge - something to play with. I figured if all else fails then I have a 160G drive that I can probably use! The previous models of Digifusion PVR seem to be generally liked, I think.

The code doesn't work, though - item must be over £150 for it to apply.
#4
I have the FVRT-90 which is a super little machine and would be complete if it had a twin tuner. I think it is the only Digital Fusion machine with digital audio out though! Trouble with this company is that one model may be great but another 'higher' model might be a bit of a dog.

Thanks for the feedback guys and the extra info on the code normalnorm :)

So I may have wasted my money? I'll let you know my opinion after it arrives; I haven't voted it hot or cold - yet!

Well you have ordered a box with zero info on the internet... so yeah, you could have just purchased a naff box... *but* you could have got a bargain.
#8
Firmware update site with themes and mods etc. if you buy one of these: :thumbsup:
(assuming the 400 is just the FVRT200 with a bigger HDD)

So far so good. I connected it up yesterday (it does have two scarts as is normal on PVRs ie VCR or DVD loopthrough on the second one). It was obviously new in the original box.

It loaded up what seems to be a 14 day EPG overnight and this morning I gave it a test by recording two short timer recordings on two different channels at much the same times, which were successful. There was a leaflet included with the manual which indicated a 7 day programme guide, quote "To receive the 7 day programme guide the unit must be left in standby overnight"

All in all - well worth £55 I would say, from first impressions!

Unfortunately the FVRT200 firmware does not work in the FVRT400. Someone on digitalspy tried it and gubbed their box :oops:

The max disk size you can use in a 200 is 127GB, so the 400 firmware must be different in this respect. Also, I think the 400 has different tuner models. After flashing with the 200 firmware they were unable to view channels, though I think the menus worked.

any further impressions? unsure whether to get this or the 150 from microdirect for £10 less (don't know if i need an extra 80gb space)

Not really much to add - it works exactly as it says it should, but at the moment you have to accept this as it comes out of the box ie tweaks (as per the link above) are very much not advisable. If I had to pick something that I find annoying, it's that you can't adjust (as far as I can see) the timer programme start time backwards ie if the stated start time is 10.30 it won't allow you 10.29 although you can adjust it forwards. The stop time is adjustable both ways (no automatic padding either but that's the way with all Digihomes, I believe). I don't know if the other Digifusions have the same start time block.

This is a new unit, the 150 you're thinking of is a refurb (although I see it carries 12 months' warranty). I have no experience of DFs so can't really comment further except to say £55 is a very good price.

If you're a member of Quidco this works out cheaper if you buy it from TribalUK within shop.com...it's the same price £55.37 delivered, but buying from shop.com gets you 7% Quidco back whereas it's only 4% from TribalUK direct
(this is true of most items listed from TribalUK)

I've had one for a while, just getting rid of mine, fed up of the fan noise during quite parts of movies.

I have an 18 month old DigiFusion FVRT 100, which I bought as a refurb from MicroDirect. It has a 40Gb hard disk, and twin tuners. I'd say it's an excellent little unit, one or two things to note though.

- The standard menus and user interface is a bit naff - I've flashed the firmware and changed the menu theme and now all is good (see the Philifusion pages)
- The device can get pretty hot, especially in the height of the summer so it does need good cooling. Sitting the box on top of another device or in a unit with little air flow will make it freeze and behave erractically
- The box can be quite noisy when running - hard disk and/or fan noise.
- Picture and sound quality are pretty good - not quite on a par with my Sony LCD tv but not bad at all.

I've found it to be a good unit, but as others have said people seem to have mixed reactions to DigiFusion PVRs!

Strange, they are the same company, same address.

Nice one - been looking for my first pvr - had been waiting for something that doesn't look totally naff and isnt too buggy with 160gb for around £50 - this fits the bill nicely.......
#20
best box ever...got 3 of em!
#21
I had the 200 model and it was a great box. Yes, it was noisy at times but I increased the volume!!! As someone else said you can replace the fan.
At £55 its a bargain.
#22
has this got series link as if it hasn't it's not worth getting.bought one but no series link, so looking for another.
#23
Great price :thumbsup:
#24
I just ordered one today, fingers crossed it's good!... Never earned a Freeview before (new to the UK) so not sure what to look for but it's not to expensive so I'm taking a gample!
#25
Ordered and received a couple of days later. All seems to work fine; easy to set up and use. Recorded picture quality is good.
