Digital Stream DHR8203U Freeview+ HD, 320GB HDD, 3 x USB, Set-top box with CI Slot.

I don't own one but this seems like an extraordinary good price for a HDTV recorder with a CI slot.

Original Price was £299 so at this price you're saving over 40%

The 500Gb model is only £185 from John Lewis and comes with 2 year warranty.

£169.99 in Currys or Dixons - with 3% quidco it's about the same

I just bought the JL 500GB model. It gets great reviews.

if you record programs - can they then be transferred / played back / edited on a PC - i refer to only SD here as HD may be encrypted
I found out to my cost that the Humax HD Fox T2 encrypts everything - does this box record SD unencrypted ?

I have the 500Gb model. Would recommend it for the price. Only negatives (for me) is that there is no auto padding - you can manually adjust recording times but you lose EPG tracking - and the unit is quite noisy (fan/HDD clicking). I usually wear headphones when viewing.

I'd prefer the Humax 500GB but the price has been stuck at £300 for months (the Co-op seems to be cheapest currently at £289.99). Surely due a price drop soon!!
