This is quite possibly the worst piece of consumer tech I have ever bought. I originally got it (this is my third) a few years ago for the pause/rewind function and since then it's been updated with series link and a 14-day EPG which is great except you can't use it as it freezes, locks up and randomly re-boots itself several times a day and sometimes after switching it off and on again it gives nothing but a black screen on my TV. Don't get me wrong, the features are good but the application of them is poor. It worked (all three of them) for around a year with the odd re-boot needed but now it's an occurance that happens several times a day. It misses recordings, corrupts programs that have to be removed on boot and despite several OTA updates it's getting worse and worse to the point of it being almost completely useless. Don't waste your money. Spend an extra fifty or sixty quid and get a better one. I should've learnt my lesson after the second one but I won't be making the same mistake again!
