Hi i have had a DPLite i for 3 years and it has frozen severral times, wants to check itself and the HDD every so often for some unknown reason, I have had to do a total disk re format twice whci is very annoying and lost all of my programs ( Wife & I "not happy Jan" ) but other than the fiddly remote which i agree with other users comments, it has served me well until now, It will now not switch on and the light flashes and I cannot get into the setip to see what givves. I contacted service and they were helpful BUT I have to return it to Sydn...ey from Melb for them to look at it $ 99 + postage etc and 2-4 weeks to return if fixable. Current issue: Is there anyone out there who has had the power switch go west ? and if so can a local serviceman just replace this switch or are we forced to go back to beyond Wiz and pay financial roulette with them ??? When it worked it was very good and reasonablly OK to operate silly issues i had nothing to do with - product quality ??
We bought our Beyonwiz DP-Lite i about 4 months ago to replace a video recorder that died, plus we needed a set top box to get all the free digital channels - yes, I know, we're behind 99% of the population!
We did a bit of research on the net and the Beyonwiz DP Lite i seemed to get the most thumbs up.
Being technologically challenged, it took us a while to set it up, but now we've got the hang of it, it is so easy to use. The instruction booklet is pretty user-friendly and the on-screen TV guide is convenient and easy to navigate. We ...can record programs on two different channels and watch a pre-recorded program all at the same time which is very handy. There may be cheaper units on the market, but from our research they are either unreliable, have less features or aren't user-friendly. Our 500GB Beyonwiz has become indispensable. I don't think we'll ever use up all the recording space, because we like to record, watch and delete, but if we do, we have the option to plug in an external hard drive up to 1TB which would triple the storage! We purchased our Beyonwiz online from Ice TV. They usually offer the best price, plus they often have specials which include varying lengths of free membership to Ice TV. We got 2 years free membership, but I don't think we'll ever use it.
