Did anybody buy the John Lewis Digital Stream DHR8205?

Hi, after having a pvr for a while and having freezing issues I decided to go for this. Everything working ok except when we came to use it today it looked as though it had froze although when a button was pressed the ir light lit up on the unit. After switching it off and then back on all was fine. Anybody else had any similar problems?

Maybe you need to think of where its kept, is it getting good ventilation?

Hi kramvic

We bought this for my Great Aunt and it is performing as you describe, freezing up but receiving remote signals. It is causing massive problems for an elderly lady. Have you solved the issue with yours? Any info would be brilliant! Thanks

[Hi martyke, we took ours back and got a replacement, had the new 1 about a wk and it froze once. After turning tue power off then back on its now fine and has been for 8 days. If I get any more issues I will post but looks like you need to take yours back as well.quote=martyke]Hi kramvic
