“Just returned this to the shop, 2 days before warranty...”

Written on: 20/11/2009

Just returned this to the shop, 2 days before warranty expired, as it was getting worse & worse. From day 1 we had hiccups, with it 'hanging' or freezing, having to be unplugged & plugged back in to make it work. Often didn't record things, also un-programmed all timer recordings that were set up, and on one occasion wiped off everything I had recorded. Shame, because when it actually worked, it was a brilliant machine… Read Full Review

“Bought from Currys online, after two bad experiences...”

Written on: 03/10/2007 by keithrigby (4 reviews written)

Bought from Currys online, after two bad experiences with other machines, and after reading Terence Wass's review... Delivered very quickly by DHL - before Currys have even debited my card! A bit of background here - I bought my first Goodmans DVD recorder three years ago, and until a few months ago, it gave me stirling service. When it finally started playing up, I bought a Sony - and my problems began! (Sony RDRGX120). To open the Goodmans box and take out this machine was like meeting a much… Read Full Review

Very nice review, I bought it yesterday from ASDA after reading your reviews, very easy to setup....Thanks...How do u pause your live programs and play them again, because when I press pause, it doesn't do anything? Does it have to be in a particular mode when you can do it?… Read Full Review

“From out of the box I thought "Oh yes, I like the...”

Written on: 10/02/2007 by Terence Wass (13 reviews written)

From out of the box I thought "Oh yes, I like the weight of this".
Out with the old VCR, out with the old DVD player and in with the Goodmans.
Power on time to select the region. Remote was dead. Checked the batteries with a volt meter and found one was fully charged and one was completely dead... out of the same packet. Unusual. One good battery later and we're off.

From the top....
It looks good, not as chunky as some players and it has a nice mirrored front.
The front panel available… Read Full Review

I must say that was an excellent review, you really made me smile the whole way through. I only wish I was in the market to buy a new HD DVD recorder as you totally sold me. Oh, and great taste in music - Radiohead

Hi, liked your review, but do you know if you can save Freeview channels you record on to the hard drive, as in the Philips machine?

Hi David. If you set the SCART leads up properly and run the loop through UHF (analogue) through it, then yes.
<br/>Record on SCART from the set top box and watch the analogue channel on the TV.
<br/>Apparently, if you want to, you can watch a DVD while recording a program to the hard drive too. Quite when you would ever need to do this escapes me though... perhaps if you rented the DVD the night a good film was on TV (but you would have to be a dufus).

Loved reading your review. Very entertaining, and I might just have to get me one of these baby&#039;s! They sound the business.
