Yes the cheaper PVR's really are hit and miss. I would stick to either the Humax or Topfield models personally...

Whilst I fully agree with you that the Humax and Topfield are without doubt the best 2 freeview pvr's out there. I think that to dismiss something that is about a quarter of the price is a bit unfair. I know that some people have problems with other pvr's, but there are also a lot of people who are more than happy with theirs. I have a Digifusion which I'm over the moon with, I've had it nearly 2 years now, and I know it is prone to the odd hiccup, but I also know how to avoid them, and I've had less than half a dozen bad recordings in 2 years (recording several programmes per night). The Inverto is similar in many ways to the Digifusion using a lot of the same 14 day epg (even though it looks very different), there was also an old Thomson model which was also from the same "family".

Don't get me wrong, I really like the Humax and think it's well worth the money - I bought one for my parents last year as a thankyou when they helped me buying a new car. But with such a huge difference in price, I think it's a bit unfair to dismiss the cheaper pvr's.

On another note, Topfield are replacing their pvr with a newer version iminently which has a bigger hard disk, HD upscaling and an HDMI output. I think that in the next couple of years this is going to be more common due to everbody buying new HD tv's. So to be honest I'd be tempted to buy something cheap for now, and then get something better when the next generation of pvr's arrive en masse.

Incidentally, I spent £70 on my first (non-pvr) freeview box - a Daewoo Setpal that eventually died. Anything thats less than that and can record aswell must a bargain.

I got the Goodmans, too, it's constantly losing the signal. It doesn't appear to have a second tuner, either, whenever I set it to record it will only let me watch the channel I'm recording :?
Not a happy bunny, and I'm getting no response from Goodmans either.

I wasn't dismissing anything, I was just stating what my personal preference would be. There is no doubt this was a good price for what it is.
I'm not sure if Inverto will be updating their boxes to be Freeview Playback compliant, as Humax are either? :?

Sorry about that, I must have misinterpreted your post, however I do stand by what I said about some of these older pvr's going for £40-£50 are fantastic deals. Yes some are dodgy (I wouldn't have gone for the Goodmans, and having used mine non-stop for 2 years, I wouldn't even consider anything which wont allow you to record 2 channels at a time)

I think you're right about the Inverto box being updated to be Freeview Playback compliant, however they still seem to be actively supporting it as the latest firmware was only released last October. It was a very good price, especially for a brand new machine rather that a refurb.

What a BARGAIN! I paid £135 for mine (over 18 months ago). It has been absolutely solid performer. Can watch a recording and tape 2 channels at same time, with the bonus of having 14 day EPG. If there was anymore available at that price - I would have bought another as a spare.

I'd definately recommend this box to others. I'm no expert, but bought this from the Boots site a while back when it was £60, works fine, no problems whatsoever. Quiet too.

I got a cheap £60) one from argos, aint had no probs with it at all.
#21
The ones who have it working well, what SW is it running?

I would have to say £44 is about as much as its worth, I got a cheap one months ago now and I have to say it's officially rubbish. Got a couple to some friends and one packed up in no time and the other is about as reilable as my one!

Started with the Digifusion FVRT200 sometime ago now , waste of space and fried, then actually considered the Inverto when it was up near the £200 mark, ended up going for the Topfield and thank goodness for that, it's been rock steady and does all your really need out the box even though you can tinker with it.

Inbetween houses just now so the Inverto is in use...ish. It's so unreliable and even the people who swear by them talk about having to do a hard reset every now and then....mmm well it only wipes the library...handy!

Might be if it had USB, as for the firmware, if its the older version out the box you probably need to use one of those ancient cables to get it to be more reliable..

14 day EPG brilliant, unfortunately the EPG on this can take 14 days to move between one day to the next...

Still ok for £45 but dont expect it to be stable.

The worst part about the goodmans one for me is although it does have the twin tuner its described very pooryly you can record one channel and watch another have done in the past but when it loses the signal it doesn't attempt to regain it again, what makes it even worse is it will get to that stage it can find the signal but won't show picture, so i have to turn it off at the front power button not standby mode, then i have to turn it on wait like a whole minute for it to boot up start watching and start recording again and randomly half an hour later it does the same thing again.

Also what wasn't described either was the output sound is only Mono not even sterio i noticed it was werid when using my toshiba lcd tv and then discovered latered that the sound is only mono, records very well shame it can't keep signal tho, and yes goodmans are not willing to help me either because i never posted them the post within 30 day warrenty slip to get 12 months warrenty, that i never got in the firstplace.
