Smaller than old model

I purchased this as I already have an earlier model which I am very pleased with (DMR-HW120). This new model is smaller but functions in same way as my existing box. The only problem is that I cannot access on my Panasonic tv on my LAN using the DLNA function, my "old" box works fine. This new PVR is to replace a Digital Stream PVR which is starting to be unreliable. Excellent PVR does all that it should, just wish my TV would "DLNA it".


Cheap plastic feeling remote. Awkward instructions. Slow menus. Tacky looking display on front of box. Doesn't have All4, ITV Hub etc.

Excellent value for money

I decided to get rid of a very expensive Sky tv subscription and bought this instead. Extremely easy to set up and easy to use. It's simple to program a recording and has all the pause, rewind and fast forward features I've become used to. The Netflix feature is worth the £7.49 a month subscription. This and the BBC iPlayer are slow to load but I don't mind that. The only negative is you can't watch Netflix whilst the box is in record mode, but I'm working round that. Am really pleased with it.
