“Freeze problems on some programmes since switchover”

Written on: 16/11/2011

My Digihome PVR160 has worked fine for several years, apart from occasional crashes. However, since digital switchover in the Oxford area 2 months ago, it is unable to play or record some channels without picture & audio freezing irregularly every 2-5 seconds. I have retuned several times, including 2 factory resets. It has the latest software v13.0. And the signal quality is good or very good on all channels. Some programmes play & record fine while the next freezes and the next is fine again… Read Full Review

Written on: 25/11/2010

had my first digihome for about 4yrs, loved it, when it started to go wrong, went straight out and bought another one, pvr80, have had this one for about 3yrs, its fast and simple to use, no real problems at all. wanted to upgrade to a box that recorded 2 channels, could only get one out of argos with my card, but they dont sell digihomes now, so got a humax less than a week ago, it was awful, put it back in box today to go back, brought my digihome back out of spare room. cant believe the… Read Full Review

Written on: 17/11/2010

I have owned a 160 for nearly 2 years. Has been superb. I've always got a library full of stuff to watch and we can skip the ads. Fine until a couple of months ago when recorded stuff is jumping and skipping. Music recordings are often ghastly. Saying that, I recorded BBC 1 and that seems to be OK so recording is worse on ITV channels and freeview channels. Any body think it can be repaired?… Read Full Review

Written on: 19/07/2010 by keithw2 (1 review written)

Reading the other reviewers I seem to be the lucky one. I've had a pvr80 for 4years and found it to be best bit of kit i've ever owned. It's the easiest and most intuitive machine to use and has never let me down. Even going digital no problems at all. I have a Sagem at another address and that is a real pain to use. I've been delighted with my Digihome. ps I don't work for Digihome or have anything to do with the company… Read Full Review

Written on: 30/03/2010

Have had mine for 4 years and it has been great no problems easy to use, and really I can not fault it what so ever but for one thing it has finally gone to the big DVR in the sky.
So I went and brought a Samsung DVR and if you thing you have problems with this one the Samsung is really bad.
All in all I will get another one and would and have told mine work mates all about this one.

“Extremely disappointing machine with problems...”

Written on: 14/02/2010

Extremely disappointing machine with problems throughout the last 1 year. Problems to do with the poor consideration of manufacturer for the ever faulty remote control which I had replaced twice under warranty. It also kept suddenly jamming itself of and needs to be switched of from the mains and restarted with loose of often valuable programmes. Now after just 2 years it has completely stopped and the light has disappeared from its panel and no one seem to be interested in giving any… Read Full Review

Written on: 25/01/2010

I have nothing but praise for my Digihome digital recorder ...for those who complain about failing after one year I should refer you to the latest E.U Law reference 1999/44/EU which states that all electrical items should be guaranteed for TWO years. I have just learned about this but it is worth knowing when arguments start with the supplier.

Written on: 29/11/2009

I pirchased two recorders, the second one records two programmes at the same time which is great. I have not had any trouble with them so far. If a problem occurs it only needs to be reprogrammed. Great value for money. There's very little I don't like about it and would recommend it… Read Full Review

Written on: 31/10/2009

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… Read Full Review

The Digihome PVR80/160 recorder was a lot of trouble. Remote would turn machine off but not on. Even manual use of button on set often did not work until third try. Picture inclined to sieze. Because of this recordings poor or only partially made. We returned the set… Read Full Review

Written on: 23/03/2009 by omega2498 (3 reviews written)

The Digihome PVR80/160 is Easy to use, great picture when it works ... Not reliable in my opinion. Sometimes locks up, tuner section more prone to break up/loss of signal than my Thomson DTI 1000 set top box. Cannot seem to rely on recording from the `Guide'. No upgrades to software available. Potentially very good product, but too unreliable for comfort. Returning to Argos for refund. Argos now listing an ALBA machine in what looks like the same casing ... ? (March 2009)… Read Full Review

Written on: 03/01/2009

After several months, whenever I tried to record, the picture and sound jumped so much that the recording was hopeless. I re-tuned the unit several times; turned off the electricity supply from the mains; but still the problem persisted. In the end, while trying to record, I picked up the unit and thumped its underside. That fixed the problem!… Read Full Review

Written on: 25/11/2008

Simple to use, it doesn't even need a child to program it. Good capacity, it took us over a year to get near filling the disk. A good machine ruined by badly tested software and unhelpful support in my experience I feel. I would never buy another of that brand. Do not recommend the Digihome PVR80/160… Read Full Review
