Twin Tuner (DVB-T) Record one channel while watching another

Can it record two channels at once?

Can it record 2 channels at once and playback something already recorded on the HD ?

no record one watch one this is a vestel type pvr decent price most 160gb versions are £99 same as goodmans hitachi digihome techwood etc good boxes some you can modify with firmware to record twice at same time not sure on this breed :thumbsup:

I have one (well not this exact model but the same box with Digihome branding). There is a hack but it didnt work on mine. Very average and suffers from freezing/ skipping a lot. Its like the hard drive cant keep up when recording a channel and playing back a recording at the same time. Great price but doesnt really do the job properly. I found it unusable. I also have Sky+ and never get problems with that, also I have a Matsui Freeview one that works without glitches. Maybe this one is different but from what ive seen a lot of these are rebadged by Argos, Evesham and other companies and a lot of them dont seem up to the job. Voted HOT as even though Ive a poor experience its a very good price compared to other retailers.

The skipping will be because your aerial signal isn't strong enough . Freeview boxes have differing tuner sensitivity. These Vestel PVRs are pretty sensitive, but you do need a stronger signal for PVRs than standard set-top boxes ( the aerial signal is feeding 2 tuners ).

These are comparitively good boxes and work well ( these are one of the best budget PVRs) . Mine has given no problems in over 10 months.

A bit more info from a question I posed at Digital Spy. It's worth checking the user comments there before leaping in, there are a lot of cheap PVRs on the market that may disappoint.

It is almost certainly one of the Vestel clones. Judging by the use of … It is almost certainly one of the Vestel clones. Judging by the use of DTR (rather than PVR) in the model number and the presence of the Freeview Playback logo on the front panel suggests it is one of the latest T816 Vestel variants which have dual record capability. However it does not say specifically it is dual record. It just says "With Twin Tuners as standard you can even record one Digital TV channel, whilst watching another". This together with the low price suggests it may be the older T810 Vestel unit which is not dual record (with the official software at least). If it is a T816 it is a good price as the equivalent Wharfedale branded unit at Argos here is priced at £139.99.Colin

These are certainly now the Vestel T816 models with dual record and able to watch a recorded programme at the same time. In my mind, it is clearly the best pvr out there under £100, much better than the very loud Thomson and is 250gb in size which is bigger than nearly all the other vestel clones.

My DTR has stopped working since the switch over
