Love it , has lasted 10 years and still going strong.

As in title, and the ability to record one and watch another program is so handy. We have a 1 tb USB plugged to archive our faves in personalised folders thus making more space on the beyonwiz.

Purchased in February 2010 at JB Hi-Fi.

Good Entry Level PVR

published

Picked up a refurbished one for $99 and love it, never used a PVR before and it is easy to use and for $99 great value for money. 500G hd is quite sizable and holds alot of viewing. I also found it quite easy to hook it up to a pc and play shows from the pc and also to copy shows from the unit to the pc.

My best buy of 2012 by a long shot!
Cheap, Easy to use, Good sized HD
Blue LED is quite bright, sometimes recording 2 channels isnt enough

Disappointing for the price

published

Very poor remote - the stop/play are the smallest on the remote and difficult to access ecpecially in the dark. The unit had issues with some recordings - not allowing me to delete them or play them resulting in the unit continuously checking the hard drive.. The unit also had problems playing files it is suppose to support. The unit has no back up for any power failures so you have to re set the clock etc hence if the power re connects the unit does not record until the clock is re set. Thankfully the unit has stopped operating totally - it powers up but nothing else - i won't be getting it fixed.

Excellent

published

Great entry pvr with more features than most would probably need. I would definitely recommend this product to anyone else.
Simple to use and great online support for the more advanced features. Great EPG especially if connected with ICETV. The dual tuner means you can watch 1 programme and record two others which we do use occasionally. Can easily stream music and movies from the computer, or from a usb drive (ours is 500mb and works without a hitch).
Remote is pretty rubbish, but we use the Logitech Harmony One so it's of no concern for us. Photos are played very poorly - large lag times between images.

I also found the remote clumsy and now use a Logitech Harmony.
I miss the front display from my previous PVR which gave channel and time.
Apart from that the unit performs well and is easy to use.

Does everything I need

published

I bought this to replace Foxtel. So leaving channel choice aside, I have found it a useful PVR that does what I need it to do.

I have used the USB connection to watch TV and movies from and external drive and streamed movies from my PC (sometimes this is a little slow with my set up, but it does work).

While I haven't found it very intuitive to use, the manual is good, once you find what you're looking for.

I think the IceTV program guide is a must, but after the free trial this is an additional cost.
all the features I expected
the manual could be improved

Sorry judy I have no idea. Maybe a learning remote is the way to do

Am I able to play a recorded program through my laptop and burn it to DVD?

Annie, you can transfer a tv program onto your computer using wizfx as .ts format which plays with windows media player. You can then transfer that file onto a disc/usb/portable HD to play somewhere else. I have transferred files onto USB for a friend so I know that works :). Whether of not that file is able to play on a dvd player would depend on the player I think.

Annie that is a technical question that is beyond my limited knowledge. i think like all the recorders on the market they don't like you burning anything for nothing so i doubt it. If you want to burn stuff buy a dvd recorder player.
