Don't miss a thing with the Philips Freeview+ HD PVR. Designed to easily record all your favourite high definition TV shows, with one-touch recording, twin tuners to record while watching something else, series recording, the HDT8520 is equipped with a 3-hour time shift buffer to enable you to pause live TV or make an Instant Jump or Instant Replay at the touch of a button.

The stunning design of this Freeview+ HD recorder includes a sophisticated light feature that can be activated when the device is switched on. 8-day coverage of the Freeview Programme Guide (EPG) has been integrated in a slick, sophisticated user interface for easy navigation.

Not only equipped with top-notch sound & vision technology (Dolby Digital audio & 1080p video quality with HDMI cable included), the HDT8520 also boasts remarkably low power consumption in both active and standby modes and has been designed to function almost silently. None of the whirring noise so often associated with recording devices.

Finally, the 500GB hard disk drive will let you record up to 125 hours of native HD content, or 250 hours of standard definition.

Almost went ahead and bought this but decided to Google it first. People are not happy with this box.



This box is truly shocking there is only one freeview hd pvr to get and that's the humax foxt2 HDR it's pricey but u get what you pay for trust me

Was£149.99 in Asda this morning for anyone interested but not very good reviews about this model.

Terrible reviews for this on AV Forums. This box is full of faults and bugs apparently.
Which was why i went for the Digital Stream 500gb.... and i've been 100% happy with it.

Another crap Philips product . I bought a Philips dvd recorder few years back absolute rubbish Same old problems as this item ,just doesn't work. What on earth has happened to Philips, they used to sell really good quality products .After my last experience of contacting support and trying to upgrade firmware which just didn't work, i vowed i'd never buy Philips again. Mate of mine bought one of these and sent it back total rubbish
