We bought one of these on clearance from Target for $139.
Good value (compared to the original $349), for a functional but cheap unit.
Dual HD DVB-T tuners, can record 2 shows at one.
500GB HDD (Hitachi DS-7SAC500, 7200rpm, SATA 3.0Gb/s)
Fast channel search, found all available channels easily.
Easy to set recording using the EPG, which is formatted like the TV guide for one channel at a time.
Includes A/V output (and cable), RGB outputs (and cable), HDMI output (no cable).
USB Host Port - can copy MPEG1/2/H264 recording between the internal and external drives.
Mechanical OFF switch.
No Analog tuner, AUX video input or DV-IN facility.
User interface is not bad, but nowhere near as polished as our LG RH397D.
Recordings are listed by channel, date/time, length & GB size only - no thumbnail
, no show name. [Can rename, but too much hassle.]
Uncompressed recordings - HD= 4GB/hr, SD= 2GB/hr - fill up the drive quickly.
"Low power"? 19W operating, 18W in standby! Fan and HDD never power down.
- Can't complain much for the price.
- We can now record HD shows, and the kids have a PVR of their own.
- I will turn it off to save power and noise, when not planning to record.
