There's a review of it here:

http://www.ricability-digitaltv.org.uk/pages/test-reports/stbs_and_digital_tv_recorders/test-reports-stbs-and-digital-tv-recorders/pvrs-summary-test-reports/yamada-dtv-3000hdd.htm

It seems that the software has a few 'quirks' that make it difficult to use. However, at the price it's probably worth a punt.

As it's mail order you can always send it back within 7 days, under the DSR.

Thanks AndyToys...that's most helpful.

Note it ca not record from both tuners concurrently and you can't watch a previous recording whilst it is recording, if that makes sense.

My thomson can though! Best thing i ever bought.

I bought a 320 GB version of this from the price drop tv store in huddersfield for £86 (160 version was £64) and I would not have paid anymore. The EPG is rubbish it takes ages to update in now and next mode. On the 7 day view you can not skip to the next day without going through each hour. There is PIP in the EPG but as you scroll down to look at what is on the other channels the PIP view changes channel. The recorded programmes are named with the channel and date/time recorded only i.e. BBC-1 , BBC-2 etc. Only reason I did not take it back is at 86 quid it will do for now tillsomething better comes along for a better price. At £99 for the 160 GB I would not bother. Pay 70-80 quid more and get a humax.

Thanks CloudNine. Thought this was a bargain, but now we know otherwise.

My parents have the Humax 8000T and a mate has the Humax 9200. Both are amazing bits of kit.

I too have read awful reviews of this product.
#10
Oh yeah and it does not update over the air either automatically or manually apparently ( checked reviews and looked in manual ). I emailed them to ask about updates via serial port :? and they have not replied after over a week. (firmware is a year out of date)

No it doesn't. I've owned both the Topfield, and the Humax, Humax wins hands down, and is cheaper

Had the Humax 9200 for a year now. Absolutely excellent. Quality piece of kit, regular updates to improve it further, easy to use (even my Mum can use it), and it looks classy too.

It does seem that there is not a reasonable 'cheap' PVR out there. You really do get what you pay for.
#14
I recommend the Matsui M802PVR/M1602PVR if you can still get hold of one.

After trawling through quite a few, I went for the Matsui for my mother in law, as this seemed the cheapest most reliable easy-to-use option, when reading reviews on Digitalspy.

BIG and Ugly.....
#16
Just add my vote for the Humax 9200. It is worth paying more for a reliable pvr.
#17
I've voted cold, as though this seems a good price, the quality is very debatable. Probably worth paying a bit extra for something with bit more pedigree.

I have a Toppy and for me it is by far the best PVR (I would go so far as to say it is the only one I would buy) on the market.

I think it depends on your needs though. Out Of The Box, the Humax is better from what I hear, but once you use the extended functionality of the Toppy it blows the Humax out of the water.

The killer advantage of the Toppy for me is the keyword record functionality. I have on serveral occasions completely missed the fact that a new series of a show I like is starting. It doesn't matter though because I turn it on and it has recorded it for me anyway. It is the closest thing to the Tivo functionality that is around at the moment.
