Can recordings be transferred to DVD disks?

Is it possible to transfer recorded programs from this HD recorder to dvd disks for playing on other TVs or PCs?

1 Answer

Hello, Thank you for your question. It is not possible to transfer recorded programs from the Bush 500GB Freeview+ HD Smart Digital TV Recorder to DVD from the Hard Disk Drive. More information about this device can be found at http://argos-support.co.uk. Thank you for using Argos Q&A.

Should this box fail to give correct picture quality,ie. No picture break-up in the area where sold, why is it excluded from retun policy. Under whau

Thanet is notorious for problem reception with HD. Until the product is tried, one does not know if it will work in any location. If it does not give the correct picture quality, then it is not fit for purpose and should be readily returnable.

Hi there,

I have looked into this for you and can confirm that this product is excluded from the 30 day money back guarantee as, if it is deemed unsuitable, it cannot be resold to another customer as it is not in brand new condition if it has been opened and used.
However, I can confirm that if there is a manufacturing fault with the product this is covered by our 12 month guarantee.

I hope this information helps,
Thank you for using Argos Q&A
