Excellent price for a DVD recorder with a 200Gb HDD as well. Very tempted at that price.

Think one on offer/advertised is silver...any diference between the 2 shown above?

If you click the gallery it shows you both.
But there's no sign of it when checking my local stores, is this regional?

Rear: Stereo Cinch, Coaxial digital, Optical digital.

so yes.

Looks like a good deal @ that price. Plays divx, xvid and with 3 years Warranty :thumbsup:

Only downside is no freeview built in. Always use freeview box though.

Doesn't appear to be listed on my postcode view of Lidl - what day is it due to release?

I think the fact that as the is no freeciew built in is a bonus.

If the PVR has freeview built in then you cant record sky, and as Eastbourne is not getting freeview till 2012 then this is a GREAT deal!

Shame it's not in any Eastbourne stores!

If the tuner was Freeview it would not stop you recording Sky.

As comments above - seems very good. But, does anyone have any experience of the brand, player, etc??

We don't get anything in Eastbourne...no Dom Perignon, no cinema preview tickets, no young people....

I got one of these from Lidl first time round about a year ago(Targa DRH-5100x 160gb - £150 I think). I would highly recommend it. Both build quality and software is excellent. The software is highly intuitive making it very very easy to use (I dont think it could be better).

Really I have yet to see a Freeview PVR that will record from an external source if you know different please share the info:whistling:

This is a HD with DVD recorder, had it been Freeview you could have still recorded from an outside source. ]Like this one that I've just ordered.

Does it have timeslip/pause facilities? eg if you disappear out of the room while watching a live programme, able to watch the bit that you missed as it continues to record?

Can't see it in our local store (Hampshire) , when do you think they will put it on their website so we can search for one ?

i got this ages ago and it didn't work, i got in touch with targa for a replacement and they said to send them the old one, which i did. They fixed it, then sent it to the wrong address!! They then had to wait for a letter from whoever it was sent to to say he hadn't recieved it (?). Then they said they'd send me another - but nothing, finally after about 5 months of emails they sent me a direct bank payment. I hope for your sakes it doesn't go wrong lol, or take it back to lidls (brought mine from the other end of the country tho).

The upside was that when they emailed me saying they'd send a replacement, they said "We understand you are probably very frustrated but as we at Targa aim to please our customers we are going to send you a 64mb memory stick" If i had got it i don't know what i was meant to do with it? Save 11 photos or sell it on ebay for 23p??

Anyone?

Additionally, I guess on this I am sacrificing that there is no HDMI connectivity or upscaling? The fact that it doesn't have tuner, does that mean that I can still record programming off Freeview which is bult into a TV or by way of standalone set-top box?

Try looking at the tech spec. Answers all your queries.

It is PVRs that can't record from external sources - they just record the signal from the Freeview tuner.

DVD recorders however can record from external sources. A common setup is to have a twin tuner PVR for recording day to day Freeview programs and a DVD recorder for backup of any programs you want to keep and/or to record from satellite.

Will this work after the analogue switch-off programme is complete?

Yes just use a freeview box sky or virgin media input

looks good value,

have tried all the stores anywhere near me(midlands) with no luck:-(

lets hope they do the deal again and spread it more nationwide.
