Not too difficult to check online to see if it is - and it is to save others checking

Should be able to get £5 off to using voucher code TDX-RET (valid until1/11/09)

I'd rather pay the extra £30 and get a refurb Humax from Humax Direct though.

Agreed, but it is so bad, I'd rather have pins put in my eyes!

New, they are a stinking pile of crap. Refurb? Well, for once it doesn't matter, the sooner it conks out totally is the sooner you can get something better!

I stand to be corrected. Perhaps you could advise then?

I have the Humax 9200 and it's great and reliable. Maybe you are better getting a 9200 from Humax Direct then? They're a bit cheaper.

I said AGREED!
I was agreeing with you!... the Thomson is HORRENDOUS, and the Humax far better, perhaps as good as there is, although I have a refurb one, (bought for me as a gift) and it is NOT without some problems too.

Toppy's are the best :-D

The Thomos are not bad now - been many firmware upgrades so are much more reliable that previously...still got a permanently on fan though which makes them useless for bedrooms....

I would agree with that but I think you are looking at £180+ for one.

I am holding out for Freeview HD PVR - but that looks like it will be well into 2010 before that happens....

I would also agree with that plus some. Mine is totally fit for purpose, series link works superbly, I never watch live telly anymore even if I'm only 5 mins behind, far better to watch in chase play. Totally reliable since latest software update, not one missed recording or crash. Don't forget it is also a dual tuner - meaning you can record 2 freeview progs and watch a third previously recorded one. I don't subscribe or use any Top up TV channels.
re the noise - I have other things to do in my bedroom..............sleep!
cheers,

Yeah, that's what I had been lead to believe, and I agree teat they do have extra functionality, however their track record seems a bit less than perfect when it comes to reliability, and bugginess! Was looking into the options with a friend. and I was a bit surprised - he is not looking at Topfield now, bearing in mind models are a good bit more expensive than the Humax range!

Dual tuner? It could have the intelligence of a pet Dolphin, and still be useless if it doesn't work!

I have only had TWO Thomson products before... a home cinema system - clapped out in no time, and one of these excuses for a PVR - it had been firmware upgraded, and I was told how FIXED it was then too - it went into the bin some time back, as it was no more fixed than it was turned into a bread maker!

Interesting to see the history of the updates, where it wouldn't be the first time it has had MORE bugs after an update!
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thomson_DTI_6300-16#Firmware

Besides, mine had FAR more faults that are documented in the firmware changes, so many I forget most of them!

I suspect this is one of the poorest electronic products I have ever had the misery of even turning on; and remember - I lived through the 1970s when being on first name terms with the TV repair man was not at all unusual! (Anyone remember Rediffusion TV Rentals?) In fact it was so bad, I doubt I would ever think of ANY Thomson product ever again.

Hi Nihcaj,
I can't talk for WHEN you had yours but I have one now and it is totally fit for purpose and reliable. I can't say more than that.

It may well be... until they mess around with the firmware again and BUST it, as they have done before!
