Recently my husband deceided we needed a digital video recorder, and now this one is sitting nicely under our TV. I was quite surprised at the ease of installation, as well as the simplicity on the on screen programming. It comes with 160gb HDD for recording, and it has HDMI output. The timeshift feature is really handy when you get a call during your favorite show. Just rewind live TV, or just one touch record it. You can also record two shows at the same time. After the shows are recorded you can move them into different folders so each of use have our own folder and we dont have to sort through trying to find what we wanted to watch. The picture quality is crystal clear and the digital sound makes such a difference, almost like being at the cinema. Quick run and get you one and you will agree.
