I seen this for closer to £80 instore the other day and thought that was a good price so hot from me.
Although i'd steer clear of Setanta if I were you.

the box is pure ****, you will switch it on and off more times than you miss recordings !!!! be warned
#4
A friend of mines been on Setanta for a while now and never had any problems. Why so bad?
#5
This box has loads of problems. Was going to get one, look on Digital spy for more info.
#6
This is not a good box. We bought one last year and are now on our third box after taking back to Tesco and getting replacements. We only had credit card bill for purchase so they wouldn't refund.
We lost hours of recorded programmes that we were looking forward to watching. The third box now looks as it is going the way of the other two as the picture keeps jumping.
Perhaps we are just unlucky :(

Be warned stay well clear of this I had a sony set top box with no PVR or top up tv so sold it on fleabay.
Then bought one of these kept it two weeks & sold it on fleabay it freezes picture all the time this box is ****.
would take back my sony in the morning be warned.

yes, these boxes have had serious issues but the latest firmware is pretty stable and there's a new firmware being beta tested at the moment which should be available to everybody soon. For the price, it's a bargain - especially with the setanta deal....although be warned that it's not the quietest of boxes and the drive runs all the time so is not great for bedrooms!
#10
We had one of these (from Amazon) and had to send it back. Very unreliable. Setanta is a whole other problem on its own (whether on satellite or DTV) and having managed to cancel (only after threatening court action) I wouldn't touch them with a barge pole. Not voting cold as its a competive price, but I wouldn't go near this box or Setanta again.
#11
From everything I've read about those Setanta boxes they are definitely not worth bothering with.

I bagged a Xmas sale Argos £99 Humax PVR-9150T and don't regret it at all - even after 5 years of very happy Tivo PVR ownership.

If you're prepared to accept a 1yr warranty you can get a Grade A one direct from Humax for c£100 at http://www.humaxdirect.co.uk/product.asp?ProdRef=10069&cat=lcd
Otherwise now seem to be £130'ish as new/2yr warranty.

A PVR does need to be VERY reliable - especially if there are two of you in the household, one of whom relies on it to capture that crucial episode/single-showing!

agreed,shocking customer service
#14
I was given one, and I would not do the same to my worst enemy by passing it on.

It went in the bin long ago
#15
I had this one about a year ago. It was very noisy all the time when switched on, even though the hard disk wasn't running. Brought it back a week later for refund.
#16
Nice idea, but rubbish. Wish I'd taken the advice and bought a Humax!
#17
looks like a sky hd box but with the silver bit the over way round
#18
Bought one of these last year and it has so many problems with it, avoid it like the plague, corrupts recordings, faulty playback, as other posts have said its not worth the money even at that price. Never had so many headaches with one box,.
#19
bought my dad one, bag o' sh*te, more trouble than pleasure. Humax or Sky for quality and zero hassle
banned#20
I cant believe thomson are still persevering with this pile of do-dos and still manufacturing them. More design flaws than the CSA computer system lol
#21
I had one for a year and never had problems to the extent of what's being said here, although it can be a bit buggy and miss recordings sometimes. For the price its a great deal if you are willing to put up with the odd blip, as mentioned the new frimware started trials in Jan and will be available soon so this may turn out to be a shrewed buy.

If you want a cheap but slightly better box then consider the Wharfedale, otherwise go for the Humax as they are solid. Also depends on whether you want TUTV or not.

yep, wharfedale is much better. I have one for sale if anyone is interested (very little use). £50 incl delivery. Same as the TVONICS/Sony one in tescos.

The new 3.59 firmware is the dog's nuts. Those who stick around will find that it is worth it. :whistling:

The fan still annoys me but it is so good to have the trick play issue resolved! :thumbsup:

Yeah, I heard that its great, its a shame that a small incompatibilty meant that it wasn't fully released in Jan. Once the Tommies are sorted the new firmware will be released for the Wharfedale as they are based on the same Vestel architecture, essentially the same except that the Wharfedale doesn't suffer from the same low level driver issues that cause the recording corruption and the FF bugs.

If anyone does buy a Tommie then keep the hard drive clean as possible (keep only what you intend to watch again), the more cluttered it gets the more you have issues with the recordings. People have reported much better stability when you put in a large HD.
