Odd that the time is not displayed all the time and there is no visual reference that the box is recording! That aside it records on both tuners and displays HD it does what it's supposed to do.

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

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.

Can you attach this to a TV that already has freeview and smart tv features and record and pause live TV ?

Can I attach this to a Smart Television which already has freeview and use it to pause and record programmes showing on the TV's own freeview channels ?

1 Answer

Hi Adam, Thank you for using Argos Q and A. You will not be able to record the free-view through the free-view on the TV. You will have to use the aerial through the recorder and record the free-view built in on the recorder (You will get the same channels, either way). Also, you can pause live TV. Thank you for using Argos Q and A.
