Hello,

I've recieved a brand new BT Vision Freeview Recorder - with 160gb recorder this is basically a top end Freeview recorder for those with a BT Broadband Line.

Looking for £50 (will cost me £10 to deliver), or will trade for PS3 Buzz / Singstar stuff...

I'm interested in getting a 2nd one for the kitchen but your asking price is higher than BT sell it for. I just bought mine and this is what it cost:

Value pack chosen: BT V-Box only (with home plugs)
One–off connection fee: £29.36
One–off BT V-box fee: £29.36
Total one off fee: £58.72

They have only charged me £29.36 for the box so far and it is connected and working. I'm not sure whether the connection fee is charged later to my BT account, but presumably it will be and that this will be the same with anyone who buys your equipment...

If it is the whole set I'd be willing to pay close to this price to have a 2nd box, so let me know if you are willing to sell. Otherwise I'll better off buying from BT for £29.36 delivered (and presumably I don't need to pay a 2nd connection fee - I'll need to check with BT)

1 - Yes this can be used as a standalone freeview recorder but you won't get any BT Features
2 - The connection fee also provides you with you a viewing card so enabling you to use the BT Features
3 - BT are also likely to tie you into a further 18 month contract when providing a 2nd box at reduced price

So for £50 a Freeview Recorder with 160gb HDD is still a very good price, I am sure you will now try and provide links to cheaper ones, but even £50 plus delivery is a bargain in my opinion.

Hmm ... I haven't received a viewing card, but the box is up and running and doing what I want it for - recording TV. They haven't tied me into a new contract either afaik. I have just renewed by BT BB for 12 months so thought I'd get this at the same time. I wonder whether they plan on sending the viewing card later (I received the v-box more than a week ago after ordering it 3 weeks ago)...? If they don't send it and I'm not charged a connection fee then that suits me tbh as I don't plan on using any pay-per-view services.

Nope, I won't be looking for cheaper links because you can only buy this from BT afaik.

Question for OP - are the Comtrend powerline adapters included with this as it's useless to me without them as my Homehub is on the 2nd floor and both TVs are on the first. Thanks :thumbsup:
#5
Howdy, thanks for the responces. The comtrend 902 Powerline adapters are worth £40-50 on their own, so no not included at this price. They don't have to be used though, if its near the BT modem. If people want to buy some powerline adapters with it, that's fine - i'll sell them in a seperate thread. But this is just for the freeview recorder box :thumbsup: And by the way, I think you may have misread - I was suggesting I pay the postage - thus it's £50 delivered not £60 delivered.
#6
Infact, it makes sense to list the power adapters here too, as someone purchasing can save on postage. If someone wants to buy them with the box, i'll do them for £40 delivered alongside the box

Cheers

So you mean £90 for the box and adaptors..? or £40 for it all?

£90 for both delivered...

For something that cost you £29.36? Or did you pay a different price? Unless you did, I'm sure this must be classified as selling above RRP, no?
#10
Of course it's not above the RRP. You can't just go and buy a box and powerline adapters for that price, you have to subscribe, pay one off fees, etc. The box + powerline adapters do not have an RRP of £30. Stop thread crapping? Of course, at those prices you're also tied into their contract.

If I sold an Nokia N96 I got on contract (for £29.99) for £100, would that be above "RRP"? No, because I got the phone in line of taking the contract. Someone with an existing BT Vision account could make use of this additional box in another room, and effectively get a 160gb freeview PVR for £50 delivered.

I'm not trying to spoil your thread. I'm interested in buying them but at a reasonable price. And yes, you can buy the powerline adaptors and the v-box alone and without a subscription as I've explained above. I did it - see below for the link.

http://www.productsandservices.bt.com/consumerProducts/displayCategory.do?categoryId=CON-TV-I&s_cid=con_FURL_vision

But yes, I've just read the T&C's and you do need to keep it connected for 12 month (no subscription needed though, I guess they are just hoping you use pay-on-demand services)

Anyway, if you change your mind about pricing let me know :thumbsup:

( edit: and I accept it's not above RRP as it seems such a thing doesn't exist in this case - sorry about that )

I'm certainly not going to sell a 160gb freeview recorder and a set of brand new powerline adapters for £29, no. I could get more than that for the powerline adapters alone! :-)

Fair enough - I wouldn't either I suppose. Worth a try though! GL with the sale :thumbsup:

thanks dude :thumbsup:

Just be aware that you cannot connect and use 2 receivers at the same time, long term.

Whilst this feature was being looked at by BT (including the provision of BT Vision without BT Broadband), these plans have been shelved for now.

Attempting to connect a 2nd receiver will only confuse BT Vision Helpdesk. You will find the original box loses the ability to record, and from experience, takes an eternity for BT to resolve - (I'm talking over a week).

Recorded program data (not the acutual programmes) are stored on BT's server and they can only physically link to one box. If you intend to use another, you will not be able to record, not have access to OnDemand, nor will your tv guide be updated.

Cracking product when only one box is in use, tied to BT Broadband. Over the last 6 months or so, the product has been very stable and a pleasure to use.
#16
Ok good info, thanks for that. So i wouldn't recommend people buy these as a second box, but will still work great on a BT line for someone without bt vision currently.

I can answer the first question for you - No DVD drive, just a HDD.

haha no :-P

You can't use this as a standalone PVR, if you do buy it and intend to use it with your BT ttoal Broadband you will be subject to a £30 connection fee. You can get the box and the connection (along with the homeplugs for £60) best bet would be to rip out the HDD and sell that and the homeplugs seperate.
#23
hmm i cannot image the hdd is worth the postage involved though? surely someone must want this :-)
