When it works, the DVR160 is a very good, affordable system with all the features you'd want. However, as others state, it's prone to bugs. System freezes where none of the controls work have happened several times, requiring mains disconnection. Sometimes programmes get bugged on playback or record, either missing bits, or as today, halfway through the recording it skips randomly through the show. Slow rewind shows it's all there, but it won't let us watch! Errors occur every 10 to 15 recordings at a guess.
If there was a bug fix firmware update, it'd be perfect 5* must-buy product. However there's no real Digihome company (it's a badge of Vestel who will rebadge for Tesco, Argos etc.), so there are no updates. I'll never buy Digihome again.
