Like the look and spec of this but don't need one, nice to be aware of though :roll: Thanks Mike it's a good price too :)

IMHO not such a great buy! The Evesham model is identical in all but colour to the Digihome PVR160 that Argos sell for £139.99 both manufactured by Vestel - yuk!

http://www.argos.co.uk/static/Product/partNumber/5320871.htm

The 80GB version that Argos sell for £40 cheaper is probably better value for money - you only need the larger HDD if you plan long holidays or can't ever watch and delete the programmes you record.

Worth noting that this isn't a *true* twin tuner as the 2nd tuner can't record, so you can only watch one, record one programme! A real PIA as most good programmes seem to get broadcast at similar times on separate channels.

For the same money I'd recommend the Matsui PVR (made by Access Devices) which is a real twin tuner:

http://www.currys.co.uk/martprd/store/cur_page.jsp?page=Product&sku=168700 - 80GB for £120

http://www.currys.co.uk/martprd/store/cur_page.jsp?page=Product&sku=653706 - 160GB for £150

I am sure you can use Quidco or discount vouchers to bring the price down lower!

HTH - Rufus.

RufusA, thanks for the info, I was aware of the special offer Argos model but didnt much like the colour and its normally the same price aas the Evesham model, what I wasnt able to see from the spec or the look round google that I did before posting was that it had only one recordable tuner, I agree not such a good deal with that spec.

Remeber as someone else has posted in this forum you can get the Humax 9200T from Currys for £163 delivered with the relevant codes.

Hi Rufusa

Can you confirm that the Matsui M802PVR that you mention above, can actually record 2 programmes at the same time ?

thanks

The Humax is far better than all those mentioned above IMO, it sports regular (if far between) over the air software updates which add new fetures to the box, and tis a true twin tuner (record 2 different channels while watching a third).

Check out www.avforums.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=47 for lots of useful info...

The main debates in the PVR section of the forums are the Humax V Topfield- the topfield is a machine which usually goes for £230+, but has the added feature of 'taps', which are a lot like firefox extensions/themes if you've ever used those, allowing you to customise the features and appearance.
If you can find one for a sub-£200 price then you're onto a winner...:thumbsup:

It does - I bought one today after my fusion pvr finally bit the dust. Both Matsui boxes (made by access devices) can record different channels and play back a previous recording at the same time.

IMO, a 80Gb 'full dual record' pvr for £120 is a bargain. Also worth noting that the Humax is now on curry's website for £200, so even with any working codes, there is a fair difference in price between it and the £150 matsui, with arguably little difference in functionality.

Spec for the M1602PVR (same for both boxes, apart from the hard drive capacity):
