Comment: Run this is awful.
Series link jumbles programs making then collide when it's perfectly possible to record in the order I choose, why when my choice is OK does it change it to clash grrrr. Even when sorted one week the next week the jumbling will prevent ANY such recordings, why doesn't try at least two but why the jumbling in the first place. Further it keeps saying 'unexpected error' so won't record.
It's abominably slow & can take 30 min just to set 5 recordings IF it allows, you could die waiting for the recorded list to appear as it can take 10 min.or never & the same with the programmes awaiting recording. Power cycling is often the only way out.
Forever locking up, often have to power cycle every hour to make recordings.
Everyday fails many recordings.
Doesn't record from the beginning of a program if set late or as direct recording, why not it's on the disc if that program is already running.
Can't view a recording while trying to make two as it usually fails to record.
Recordings often fail if using the HDMI switch through to another device.
Doesn't sort into categories nor store series in sub folders & nothing I've tried on USB works, no photos or video.
I don't know why they chose the dim, dim, dim blue display that can't be seen, even in a totally dark room, so it's not possible to see recordings fail, we had brighter LED back in1970.
A parallel recorder, only SD, never misses recordings so it's not my setup.
I could go on & on but feel the keyboard may overheat
Good: Cheap and extremely well featured with decent picture
Bad: The EPG is just plain ugly due to the colours that have been used.
Comment: Great value for money.
