Written on: 21/10/2008

When it freezes you either have to unplug it to restart it. Which is a pain as I can't get to the plug. But found that if I press and hold the power button for about 5 seconds, it then resets it and does a disk check after a few minutes its then restarts and works as normal. I use this as a reminder to start deleting things from the library… Read Full Review

Written on: 03/10/2008 by geocou47 (1 review written)

Good product when working had problems after 6mths took it back to Argos exchanged no problem other one has gone from working after 14 months hard drive problem phoned up helpline but no joy as it is out of guarantee. Overall, I think these products should last a little bit longer than over the 12mths guarantee period… Read Full Review

Written on: 01/09/2008

For something electronic to play up after only 18 months is not really good enough, as digi is the tv of the future, so what chance do we stand of being able to afford to watch telly if units fail at this rate. Cannot afford a new box at the moment so my pvr80 was a waste of money… Read Full Review

Written on: 24/06/2008

Had the first Digihome PVR80/160 for 2 months it stopped receiving TV Channels altogether but could pay all recorded programs. For the technical the RF stage had gone down. It was replaced by Argos where we bought it, no fuss.
Now 15 months and out of guarantee the replacement has exactly the same fault.
Electronic items should last longer than 15 months. Argos say it's not a repairable item… Read Full Review

Written on: 08/05/2008 by 28v6 (1 review written)

Just updated from the old style 80g model to the new style160g which has a whole host of new features, as does the new 80g model, including record 2 channels whilst watching another and series recording, I believe the new features are due to the new "Freeveiw playback" code which means any PVR showing this logo has to come up to the new standard… Read Full Review

Written on: 09/03/2008 by richdor (1 review written)

when watching recorded items why does the sound go off, to get it back i press stop then play to get sound back. Also i have had it freeze up on me at playback, it then renders useless.
the box will perform nothing. i have to turn the power off at the socket, put it back on and allow the box to re-install, luckily everything recorded is still on the hard drive. Would love to know if other people are experiencing the same… Read Full Review

Written on: 30/12/2007

Having just come to the end of my tether with a ferociously complicated JVC combined VHS and DVD recorder I was ready to give up tv altoghether so to get something which was a) cheap. B) useable is fantastic.
Go for the 160GB version if you can afford to - once you've got some films recorded you start to eat into the disk space… Read Full Review

Written on: 30/01/2007 by scarborian (32 reviews written)

Firstly, can I point out that this review, although primarily about the Digihome PVR80 can also be applied to a whole host of other PVR's under various assumed identities, but all made by the same manufacturer, Vestel. It comes badged as Techwood, Goodmans, Grundig, Sharp, Hitachi and others with the only real changes (apart form price) being cosmetic and the choice of hard drive size!
The Digihome variation can be purchased from Argos for a very reasonable price and is available in 80Gig and… Read Full Review

Written on: 24/03/2008

I have just read you can't record 2 channels at the same time, my sister has one and she has recorded 2 channels, I have seen it.
<br/>Only purchased last week and no updates. Very easy to use, nice bit of kit.

I have just purchased this (Aug 08) and I have tried to program it to record two different channels at the same time. It said that it could not do this. It appears some require "updates" others do not?
