I couldn't find any reviews on google, or a product code on the boots website, but for £70 I'm going to give it a go as others out there are so much more expensive, plus if it's not good, I'm sure I'll be able to take it back to one of the stores.

I've got one of these - they are great freeview recorders. Much better than my old DigiFusion.
#5
These are excellent. I've had one since they first came out two years ago. I'm gutted now as I seem to recall paying about £250 for it.

There's a useful website where you can read other peoples views, report faults, download firmware etc:

not really supported that well in the UK going by the inverto users forum :oops:

http://www.invertoforum.co.uk/forum/index.php
#10
Yeah I read through there..

A post a ever two months. But for £69.99 - It looks very nice, works well, ticks a lot of boxes.

But does it tick the - I accept Freeview Cards Box ?

Anyone ?

This deal was posted on RPoints yesterday (possibly where the OP found the deal) and has had one comment attached :

"That's a decent price, but as I've said before on the forum, buy with caution.

I've had one for 18 months, and the thing is now locking up every day for no obvious reason. It seems lots of them are starting to do this. Also, because of a legal dispute, there has never been an OTA firmware update despite Inverto releasing some 3 versions since I bought it. The later firmware versions (likely to be in the new stock) are known to be a nightmare with missed recordings, 1 minute recordings, total library loss, etc. Another problem (with all versions of the firmware) is that the overnight EPG download often fails leaving the box locked up until you switch it off/on again. Useless if you go on holiday, because you'll come back to find the box locked up the day you left and you've now got no recordings! Inverto no longer have a UK support office, and they don't answer emails.

I would say even at 80quid avoid like the plague!"

I paid more for a Humax ...and think I am glad I did.
#12
Great deal but the code didn't work for me and only realised after I'd submitted the order :x

EDIT just read the above, maybe not so great then :o
#13
Good find - top bargain!
#14
I've got one of these - it is an excellent unit - when it works. If you look at the invertoforum website posted above, you'll find _alot_ of people who have problems with these units - they just hang randomly, but frequently - and strangely, only after the warranty has expired.

Personally, I would not buy another inverto - though I was very happy with it while it was stable and not hanging every day.
#15
As with other goods , sometimes you win , sometimes you lose .

Its worth a punt at £70 with 2 years warranty ( if you pay by Nationwide credit card )
#16
Hmmnnn... thought this was the deal for me but I'm not so sure now. Looking to buy a twin tuner PVR for my parents (after a digifusion recon I bought was returned) but it needs to be faultless - otherwise it'll drive 'em round the bend.

Thought the 160Gb Thomson at John Lewis looked OK, but put off by reports of it being noisy.

I've a Hummy 9200 which is super reliable, but has quite a noisy fan (compared to my Matsui which is virtually silent).

Thinking now maybe just hanging on for a while - or maybe I should reconsider the Thomson. Shame - the Inverto's a great price.

If it doesn't perform as required , send it back as not fit for purpose .

Here is a little tip for anyone , when you buy new electronic goods DON'T operate it straightaway . Allow 24 hrs for it too reach room temperature before initial operation , I always do this & have never had a problem with anything electronic .
#18
Didn't buy it when I first saw it... now SOLD OUT... typical!

oh.... blatenly nicked the idea from my thread :(

Did your £10 off code go through? If so did you pay via card or paypal?
#23
Sorry others had problems with the unit. Mine's been fine.

However I can confirm that this unit has no cam slot, so you will not be able to view sentanta.

Thanks for that.

I emailed them straight away saying that the discount didn't come off (probably some apply discount button that I missed) so hopefully they will refund the difference either to my CC or the gf's boots card. If not I'll be sending it back :)

They sent an email with all of this week's offers and it was under the electronics section, promise!

I ordered one and if it's pants at least I'm happy knowing boots customer care are good and I'm sure they will sort things out, but fingers crossed and I'll only use it once in a while.

Does anyone know if my TV already has a digital tuner inbuilt how that works with the Inverto, do I have to use digital via the Inverto box or can it just sort of hook up to the system already there?

All you will need to do is feed the Inverto with your aerial cable & connect it with a scart to one of your TV inputs . It will work independantly of the TV for recordings but you'll use your TV initially to view the EPG list in order to manage your timings of programmes .
#28
This will probably sound like a silly question, but if an Inverto is connected to an analogue TV via SCART cables, is it then possible to record analogue TV programs directly onto the hard drive of the Inverto... or can it only record from its own tuner? Thanks.

Most HDD recorders only record from their inbuilt tuners .

Why would you want to record analogue when it will record from 2 Freeview stations at once including , obviously , channels 1-5 .?

Unfortunately, due to our gepgraphical location (and subject to atmospheric conditions) our Freeview TV reception is not always as good as analogue, and occasionally we loose it alltogether.

On good days though it is obviously better! :)

As far as I am aware ALL PVRs cannot record from external sources (Tivo possible exception). If you want to record from external sources then a DVD recorder is the way to go.
