4 out of 5 eggsYou Could Quit Renting A DVR Update

Pros: There is no other stand alone device of this type on the market. The software has proven to be utterly reliable. The latest software update (3.01) now records audio in MPEG-4 format.

Cons: No additional ones.

Other Thoughts: I have been using this for almost 1 year and am very pleased with it. It does automatically record at the settings that the cable box puts out. The device adjusts whether it is 720p or 1080i and 15 - 30 fps. It has also been completely stable. I did purchase an external hard drive case that uses both a USB2 and ESATA interface for a spare 1TB hard drive that I had, to transfer unencrypted files to my computer. Nero 12 allows me to burn Blu-Ray discs. Since there are very few programs that I want to permanently archive, this solution, despite it convoluted nature, works very well.

4 out of 5 eggsYou Could Quit Renting A DVR

Pros: This little box does what it claims. It is an effective stand alone recording device. The only thing that you need buy is a 2.5" SATA II hard drive that has a capacity of up to 2 TB. It will format the internal hard drive with a few easy steps. All of the necessary cables are included in the package. If you can connect your TV to your cable box, you can figure out how to hook this up. It will also let you transfer unencrypted files to an external hard drive via a USB 2.0 port.

Cons: There are some shortcomings, some that are obvious and some that are subtle. The brains of this operation are slow and the graphics on this puppy are, to be charitable, primitive. There are also no number keys on the remote, which means that you must use the up and down arrows for everything. It will not format an external hard drive. There is some degradation of quality, but it's mostly because of a slow frame rate. This uses an IR blaster, like every other device of its type, to talk to a set top box. So, you can't watch one channel and record another. The device records files in an unusual format - .AVI H.264 video/MP-3 audio that makes saving recordings to disc somewhat problematic. Also, transferring files to an external hard drive via USB is a slow process.

Other Thoughts: I bought this and a 320 GB hard drive here at Newegg for $200.00. The hard drive is large enough to yield 45 hours of record time at the best recording quality. The component out from my FIOS box is 720P, so there is some quality degradation from that. Somewhere in the users manual it claims that there is a utility program on their web site that will allow this to record in H.264 video / MP-4 audio, but it is a dead link. If your primary mission is to watch your favorite shows on a time shift, this thing works very well. But, if you want to turn your video recordings into DVD's or Blu-Ray's, there are better solutions available. However, they all require a computer.

4 out of 5 eggswow

Pros: Enfin un enregistreur HD pour la maison à prix abordable. Simple d'utilisation, fiable, très bonne qualité d'images même en basse qualité (je ne vois pas la différence avec la haute sur TV 42pc). Se branche dans le terminal du cablodistributeur sans perte de qualité.

Les fichiers peuvent être lus partout (format .avi) autant sur PC, media player, etc.. Peut se programmer pour ne rien manqué, il allume le terminal automatiquement, sélectionne lui même le canal et le tour est joué. Enfin une solution alternative autre que ce que nous proposent les compagnies de cablodistribution et en plus beaucoup plus flexible car on peut transferer les fichiers sur un autre disque dur et le visionner partout. Aussi j'aime beaucoup la possibilité d'incorporer un disque dur interne dans le recorder directement.

Cons: Telecommande ne marche pas très bien lorsque c'est mal éclairer dans la pièce.
