Got one of these for my old tv without freeview, works really well.. Don't use the sd card option tho'
I hope a FreeviewHD one of these comes out (with Iplayer support) but I doubt it will any time soon
Hi,
how would you change the channel with one of these? Doesn't seem to come with a remote control.
The remote is included in the box - according to "what's in the box" info

Oh right, thanks for that
I'm technophobe so cud u tape onto sd card n watch on laptop ?
Mellow - sorry when I read it bk it sounded like I was being sarcastic but wasn't - honest!
Kebabjones - I would imagine so but will let u know once I receive mine and try it out
These are available on ebay from Chinese suppliers for just over a tenner.

I have one. They're a Sunplus chipset; seem stable enough and play a wide range of media files in addition to recording onto SD card but they can be slow in operation and the remote is very unresponsive. Mine also doesn't store channels in the correct positions but that's a minor problem.

no probs. didn't think u were being sarcastic.

Cheers
I'm slightly confused - does this record onto USB flash drive and/or memory cards?
Presumably you could use a USB card reader with a memory card (SD?) inserted which is why people are referring to SD cards (and the fact that the actual product title refers to "USB Memory Card Recording").
I've ordered one for the TV in the kitchen. Needed something like this as theres limited space.

Thanks op

i think you are right re USB card reader with a SD card but its not entirely clear on the website. Will let you know as soon as mine arrives
Some variants of this device have a USB port, some have an SD slot and some have both.

The USB slot is generally a mini-USB B-end, with an adaptor to convert it to a USB A-end.

To use an SD card they do require a flash reader if they don't have one built-in. My device also works with hard drives, as long as they have external power and are formatted FAT32.
lol this is great
I love stuff like this
mine arrived this morning - its tiny but fab!!! easy to set up and you can use either USB or SD to playback things but not figured out which you can record to as need to delete some stuff off both of mine to make space. Would highly recommend
Is there a 7 day program guide included with this unit like larger set top boxes?
Doesn't seem to be unless I've missed something! Not a prob for me though as only in the kitchen!
I found a copy of the user manual on line. There appears to be an EPG button opposite the Menu Button on the remote control so it looks like it will support an electronic program guide.
How do you play back what you've recorded on to the USB? Can it be played back via the Freeview receiver? Does it record it in a format like a .mov which can also be played back on a computer?
