Lovely peice of kit, now at a great price! Highly Recommended:thumbsup:

Good bit of kit i got one of these for £150 before Christmas from Argos. Very easy to use.

hey can someone tell me if this can record to programs at one time? thanks:oops:whistling::

No it cant but U can record eg one digital freeview prog while watching another (assuming your TV has its own Freeview capability).

Does anyone know how to make these multi-region?

Copied from net - but it does work cause I have done mine!

Remote Hack

I went to Argos and bought the One for all 6 (URC 7562)
Catalogue code 535/6209 £19.99

The user manual was wrong because it tells you to enter a 3 digit code when it only accepts 5 digits.
If you have another one for all remote, it may need the 3 digit codes, simply use the 5 digit codes below but remove the first two 0. So 00189 would be 189

If I say the DVD button blinks twice, it must do this, if it does not you must try the sequence again and again until it does blink twice.

prepare:
1. select dvd device on remote
2. hold magic button until the DVD button blinks twice
3. enter device code 0533 (DVD button blinks twice)

program buttons 1..5 with the following codes:

1 - 00189
2 - 00255
3 - 00095
4 - 00221
5 - 00079


1. hold magic button until the DVD button blinks twice
2. press 994 (DVD button blinks twice)
3. press magic
4. enter 5 digit code from above
5. press button (1..5) where to program it (DVD button blinks twice)
6. repeat steps 1 to 5 for all keys.

This hack only works if you change the command mode to "1" on the dvd player FIRST (see user manual = page 149). Once hack has been completed, you can change back to command mode "3", if necessary. Of course you need to set both the DVD player and the orginal DVD player remote to command mode "1". After making it region free you can change them to command mode "2", "3" or leave it on "1"

have a go:
1. remove disk, put player on standby
2. press 1,2,3,4,5 - player starts up.
3. press 1,2,3,4,5 - player shuts down and it says timer ok.

This is a superb price for a brilliant recorder/player. This is silver not black though.

The 870 is available in SILVER and also in BLACK.

So, any idea what colour this one is going to be?

Got to say that the silver one is really nice.

Have had my eye on one of these for ages, not too fussed over colour, but would prefer a silver one.

Went for it, don't think we'll see that price again.

Thanks OP!

This is the Silver one according to the spec so you'll be well happy when that turns up :thumbsup:
However, if someone knows where you can get a black one at this price please let me know

Brilliant, ordered, thanks to OP, heat added

You star, heat added. Just what I've been looking for and in the right colour. Rec quality for this unit is excellent. I've used a one of the 2nd gen sony recorders for about 5yrs with no problems. Don't think the build quality is as good with new machines, my old one is constructed like a Sherman Tank, but no freeview or tweaked bonuses like series record, for under £150 made my day.:-D

My Quidco is tracking too : £4.05. Brings the effective cost down to £131.07 delivered.

£135.12 is an excellent price for this, although i've just checked the website and its £162 delivered.

Has this gone up or have I missed a discount code or something?

No, a confirmation. Didn't realise that Bargaincrazy were Littlewoods Clearance.

Bargain Crazy is OK, I've purchased a Panasonic LCD from them recently (200+ pounds cheaper than elsewhere!) and had no problems at all.
The only negative thing is that they are slow with the delivery (can take up to 10 days), but at least they use a reliable courier! :thumbsup:

I’ve never known a company be so slow in delivering an item; when they say 7 to 10 days for delivery they really mean it. :w00t:
