DIGIHOME DTR80 TWIN TUNER FREEVIEW WITH 80GB HDD
This Digihome PVR model includes an 80GB drive, offering the potential for upto 111 hours of material to be recorded without the need for a single blank disc.

There will be postage on top, but I've just bought one and selected super saver delivery. Just had an email to say it's being despatched today. So bit of a bargain at £44

If it's like the 40GB one my girlfriend has then it will need the latest firmware for the digital switchover. I had to buy a serial cable to update it but it was easy enough. So it depends if this comes with the latest firmware I guess.

Though it is twin tuner it can't record 2 programmes at once. You used to be able to mod it so it could but due to the switchover apparently this can't be done any longer.

It is easy to use - but it doesn't have padding so if a program overuns you will miss recording the end unless you manually change the program times.

I have a Humax which has the ability to record 2 programmes at once, has series record, and allows you to pad recording or use actual record times (the system changes record times if times change - this seems to work excellently for me).

I would say the Digihome is easier to use but the Humax is more practical... Having said that during switchover us 9200 owners have been having a nightmare with slow response times from the remote but now switchoever is complete here in the North West it seems to be fine again.

Got my son one of these last Xmas from bigpockets. First one was a dud and replaced. The replacement is great, no issues at all. If it works OK out of the box you should be OK.

I have this PVR.... a refurb bought for the same price from big pockets a couple of years ago. Even though its only a basic PVR its been faultless and i highly recommend it.
I dont understand how you can get 111 hours recording though, as its an 80 gig this gives you only 40 hours recording.

Same for me. The second unit has been faultless. Basic unit but does what it says on the tin.

There is no such option for recording quality in my machine and just checked it again to make sure. Either this ebuyer Digihome PVR is an upgrade or ebuyer has got it wrong.

Where you can press a button and record entire series without having to click for every episode.

I don't know whether freeview does it to be honest.

I am on cable, but might get this for my mum.

Yes... it wont record two channels at the same time though. Although there is spose to be a way of upgrading the firmware to do this, but i wouldn't have a clue about that.

This is a Vestel T810.

The T825 is the one you want for series record.

Freeview's implementation of series record is much more advanced than Sky's, which frankly sucks. But you do need a newish box.

T825s are readily available on fleabay for around 50 quid.

I bought one of these as a refurb for around £50 a few years back and thought it was a good deal. Well to be honest I would not recommend one. I have had to replace the HDD, it often freezes up and is generally not very reliable.
Not sure where stock has come from as when I contacted them for a repair (out of warranty) I discovered the company has stopped trading, and some other company were honouring warranty claims, so fixed the HDD myself. Personally I would spend a bit more and get a better one.
