This seems like a very good deal for a 160GB HD/DVD recorder with built in Freeview and analogue tuners. It's labelled as a refurb, but check the last line of the description: they're brand new, but just have battered packaging. Pretty sure that HUKD users also get an additional discount at SVP.

Here's the SVP blurb:

This refurbished Tevion recorder includes a built-in 160GB hard drive and features twin tuners (one digital, one analogue) so you can record one channel (direct to disc or hard drive) while you watch another.

Features:
- One Touch Recording (OTR)
- 8-event programmable timer
- Automatic TV channel scanning
- TimeShift Recording (up to 2 hours)
- USB input
- DV input for camcorder connection
- Scart lead included
- Remote control included

Connectivity:
Front:
USB (host), DV input, S-Video input, component video input

Rear:
- Analogue tuner, digital tuner, composite video, S-Video, 5.1ch audio, optical audio, coaxial audio, SCART (x2), serial port, antenna (in/out)

Compatible Formats:
Read:
DVD+R, DVD-R, DVD+RW, DVD-RW, CD-R, CD-RW, CD-ROM, DVD-ROM, VCD, SVCD, CD, MP3, JPEG

Write:
DVD+R, DVD+RW, DVD-R, DVD-RW

Dimensions: 478 x 132 x 385mm

Please Note: These Tevion recorders are brand new stock but we have noticed that the packaging is slightly the worse-for-wear in a few cases. Of course, the full SVP 12-month warranty applies.

Say wot? :?

An ideal substitute for Sky+ if you dont want the monthly costs! h&r

These have been around a long time and varying user views.Would be interesting to hear views if anyone has one.Im am not convinced and the battered packaging would suggest they have been moved around i.e. not sold

I'm always suspicious of these PVRs being sold off cheap by the likes of bigpockets or sister companies.

Seems that if you switch to the electronic program guide while you're recording something, it'll record that instead of the show!

Now £55.99

It's always been that price; you just haven't added P&P yet.

There are NO monthly costs for Sky+:?

don't suppose this works for virgin cable?

Yes there are. Stop paying sky anything and your sky plus will no longer function as a pvr.

Doh! There are no ongoing charges for Sky+ but yes you still have to pay for at least a basic Sky subscription. My fault for not making myself clear:oops:

Spoken like a gentleman. You can of course have Sky plus without a subscription but then have to start paying the tenner a month for use of the PVR again.
I think the only way I'd give up the Sky Plus right now is if I bought the Humax Foxsat HDR for about £300. It's about the only thing on the radar which is serious competition (IMHO etc. No monies returned).

I agree with you:thumbsup: but Humax keep pushing back the delivery date for the Foxsat PVR Also I’m not that impressed @ the moment with the Foxsat channel line-up. I’m hopeful it will get much better, I already have the cabling in place :thumbsup:

You obviously never heard of TiVo - OK there are now technical drawbacks, but putting those aside the whole experience is far superior to Sky+ or V+. It's still my preferred recording device here despite teh drawbacks.

I’ve heard of TiVo and discarded because of the technical drawbacks:thumbsup: Each to his own:-D

The Humax Foxsat HDR is available now (or even weeks ago) but gets sold out straight away. I'll give it a year before I buy though - let others do the R&D. Mostly concerned about the inability to record a whole show once you've started watching it. Apparently it discards the buffer and records from the point you hit record, which is surely just a firmware upgrade?

As for Smokie's assertion that I've "obviously" never heard of Tivo that's just wrong. I share an office with a Tivo owner, some of my best friends are Tivo owners etc. Technical drawbacks are easier to ignore if your wife and kids aren't drawing your attention to them via mobile phone several times a day.

You’ve caught me again:oops: what I meant to say was dates being pushed back by Humax UK With the buffer is it that you can’t rewind the buffer back to the start of a program and start recording from that point:?

NOw £78.39

Shame that SVP got bought out by this outfit, I wouldn't " boffer " to use them now.:x

A bit confused here as Humax UK announced the shipment of the Humax Foxsat HDR in November. Having said that it's not available on the highstreet thanks to massive demand. I wish they'd stop launching these things so close to xmas.....
I don't know if rewinding would work, there's precious few reviews yet.

Sorry to OP for going a bit off-topic with this. Will retreat now.... :oops:

shishizzle, missed out! however this company under new ownshership will probably be boffersome
