Nice Box of tricks.

Ahh, this is lovely, if only i had the spare cash and a decent tv aerial...

Shame it only has a single tuner, but a lot cheaper than Panasonics which do have two tuners.

Give it a miss. You will need a bigger hard drive than 250.

I could put up with the other issues but the lack of dual tuners kills it for me. Voted warm.

Most of the user reviews on Amazon aren't exactly enthusiastic!

Not bad but poor reviews have put me off.

Wait until panasonic versions come down in price

Im in the market for a Bluray, my tv has freesat, but moving soon and dont want the hassle with setting up a dish for 2 hd channels. I knew this when I bought the tv but at the time i probably cudve guess freeview hd cud pip fs. The hard drive is a bonus really.

For the price it looks quite good, not sure price of freeview hd boxes but it def saves space at this price. Though if you guys say wait, I can definantly wait. :)

only 1 freeview hd tuner so you can't record and watch something else, poor reviews on amazon.

Is the dual tuner thing really that important these days? I seem to either download tv (iplayer) or watch it online a lot (4od, five.tv, etc.). In fact, if I really think about it I have loads of other ways to access freeview. Built-in to the tv, built-in to the dvd recorder or even a usb tv freeview tuner!

And with this, I can also stream downloaded shows (MKV) from a pc to this box wirelessly! One of the biggest draws is to watch a bluray while recording a show via freeview. This machine looks like the answer to a lot of separate gadgets combined into one unit. And from the reviews I've read, well worth it. The issues like 1 tuner and other stuff is niggly to me.

Brookheather, it may be cheaper at that store (as I found earlier), but you don't get 6 included blurays like the offer on amazon. It's only £10 difference and I'll be selling the ones I don't care for or already have.

Just so people know, dabs.com are/were selling the 500GB version of this for £258 this week! I don't know how when this 250GB version is higher priced. But hey, I snagged one and used the £20 off a £250 spend voucher they sent out to Dabs.com email subscribers.

So, check to see if you have that voucher in a dabs email shot. Got the machine on Friday and so far, so good. Few niggly things, but otherwise very good machine. Blurays look awesome, the SD portion of freeview is one of the best I've seen. Unfortunately, the niggles are that I can't seem to tune in the HD channels which is pretty annoying. It may be an aerial thing. If anyone knows about this, please message me. And I seem to be having a tv issue where it doesn't detect the player properly when it starts up. Strange.

Anyway, top machine and loving the recording, BD playback and freeview so far.

EDIT: Managed to get everything sorted today. Freeview HD tuned in, full HD sound from Blurays and even streaming MKVs from my pc to the machine! Soooo very, very pleased with this machine now.
For those wondering how to get Freeview HD sorted, it's fairly simple. I had the gain setting on my aerial turned on and at the max. While this helps with normal channels, it seems to mess up the detection of the HD channels. So, turn it all the way down and they should tune in!

Hi imdurc,

I've just got the BD-C8500 :)

I'm all set with the blu-ray, HD audio and network, but I'm still having issues on the freeview side of things:

1. The channel numbers are all mixed up and are not the regular 1 = BBC1, 2 = BBC2 etc. One thing that might be causing this is the absence of 'united kingdom' in the country setting. Instead I'm forced to select 'others'. Was this the case with you?

2. I'm not able to tune in any of the HD channels and I'm in central London so would have thought I'd be ok. I'm using a roof mounted ariel with no booster (or gain control). Do HD channels appear automatically like the other standard channels or do you have to tune manually?

Any help would be much appreciated!

Dave
