Hmm, not at all sure about this one… I was drawn to this by the price, but also as it appeared to be a superior model to the one I own already [August DVB400]. This review is therefore a comparison between the two models based on my initial observations.THE PROs:You have two options for recording formats, .ts or .ps [really only relevant if you plan on transferring files to other devices].Picture quality is excellent [I haven’t had the stuttering/freezing problems on HD channels that other reviewers are reporting].The EPG is slightly more user-friendly than the DVB400.The channel number is digitally displayed on the box.As with the DVB400, this connects either by HDMI or [ugh] SCART.THE CONs:The automatic channel scan only seems to pick up channels that are broadcasting at the time of the scan – A scan performed at 3AM failed to find Dave and Really, but picked up Dave Ja Vu and BBCs 3 and 4, while a scan performed at 3PM did find Dave and Really, but failed to…

Great Value, but many shortcomings If you just want a cheap Digital TV tuner and want to record the occasional programme on a fast USB flash Drive, then maybe this is for you, as it represents exceptional value, but its shortcomings. are many.Pros: Very good value. Receives programmes well. Easy to set up. Uses HDMI or Scart connections: Works well with externally powered Hard Disks as well as fast USB flash drives: Not the best tuner that I have come across for weak signals, but is reasonable and is better than some I have tried: EPG improved over 400.Cons: If you want a good value PVR, pay the extra for the much superior DVB400, as the 400 has the following superior features.Does not jumble the channels up.Software is more robust.Can use lower speed (normal) USB flash drives, not high speed ones necessary for the 415, Can set weekly recordings, not just daily or one offs:415 Splits recordings even on NTFS formatted drives. 400 does not:Recordings, in .ts format,…

its well worth it lets kick this off by saying ‘ its a very cheap unit ‘ and it may drive you nuts at first but there is a few things you can do to make it a good unit.I pick up broadcast from Crystal Palace – I am 17 miles away with a good outdoor aerial and the unit picks up all the SD and HD Channels with no problem at all.most important switch is – go into the menu – find the option named “LCN” within ‘ Installation ‘ turn it on and do a scan the second time. { this will place them in the correct order }rather that doing a tune straight away ‘ wait until 7pm ‘lets deal with what channels ‘ you need to watch out for ‘take Travel Channel 42 starts at 18.00 its on MUX COM5/Arq A lets say its missinghere is a trick that will save a lot of hassle ‘ but only do this between 18.00 to 22.00 ‘select Food Network 41 this is also on MUX COM5/Arq Ago to menu – select ‘ Installation ‘ – select ‘ DVBT/T2…
