It's now gone. Makes you realise how good Sky and Virgin Media actually are.
I had to pay for the experience.
The Thomson DTI 6300-16 constantly freezes, so you have to reset, losing any programmes you were recording.
Noisy - the fan blowing all the time - you can hear it over the tv.
Missed and corrupt recordings,
When fast forwarding and/or rewinding, it has a mind of it's own.
Series link started taping ALL the programmes - not just the link, but also on the +1 hr channels and the repeats (Top Gear on Dave.... say no more!) It then began to record as it should, only to revert back a month or so later.
Then, a fortnight after the warranty runs out...... it downloads a corrupt file, leaving you with no option but to format the hard drive (making you lose the hundred and odd episodes of Top Gear you had recorded, oh and probably a few things you really wanted to see).
