Was in Tesco Extra in Hull yesterday when i stumbled across this freeview box which upscales to 1028p for £63.00 down from £169.97 boxed. There were still 3 available when i was there, but not sure if this is nationwide or store specific, but an excellent price for a nifty bit of kit i think!

i will post a picture of reciept if someone tells me how i can do it!!

The TVonics DTR-HV250 digital TV recorder has a 250GB hard drive which means you can record up to 125 hours of digital TV. The DT-HV250 features Audio Description for the blind and partially sighted. You can record 2 channels at the same time and record an entire series at the touch of a button.

The TVonics DTR-HV50 has 2 HDMI connections, 2 USB inputs for JPEG picture viewing and a 1080p output.

Still £175 on the TVonics website, so seems like a good deal - although the good Tesco deals always seem to be store specific.

Early software versions had issues, but unlike many pvr companies (I'm looking at you Humax) TVonics have been very quick to respond and issue fixes for software problems. Check avforums for up to date info.

Hardly when you consider that the tesco direct does sell it for £169.97

It also clearly states on the website that john lewis and sainsburys sell it for £199 which a quick google search confirms.

It's £64. I'd argue it doesn't need to be future proof, especially with the limited range of channels there is bandwidth for on freeview.

these arent that bad tbh but not in the same league as the humax (£80 at tescos)

A freeview HD box is usually around the £50 mark without any kind of record function. They're not in the same price range at all. Its like comparing a £20 Game Boy to a £200 3DS. If you only want a Game Boy who cares how much the 3DS is.

Cheap deal but it's well worth spending the extra cost equivalent to a couple of gallons of petrol to get a Humax, which is the best (though not perfect) sub-£100 PVR.

Freeview HD isn't the future. We don't have the bandwidth space to support every channel being on Freeview HD and a lot of the channels don't want to go on it. Being that this is via HDMI, this should upscale, which is good enough for circa £60.
#16
Freeview HD may not be the future but DVB-T2 (which is the transmission system that the HD channels are broadcast with) is the future because it is more efficient than DVB-T which this box and many other current / past receivers use.
Note it wil be several years before the have the balls to pull the plug on DVB-T but one day they will.

leaving us with a lot less channels than we currently have...

Regardless of how efficient it is, we don't have the sort of bandwidth to support 30+ freeview HD channels, like Sky do
