Hitachi HDR5T01 Freeview+ HD Smart Digital TV Recorder. 4.4 5 78 79
Recording Doesn't Work Having had various Hitachi TV's & Recorders over the years I have always found them reliable, high quality and doing what they say they will. This one however..... Setup was fairly easy and setting up recording is straight forward as with my previous Box as I would expect However it simply doesn't record anything , single program or series events or even if manually set to a timer record but only If we sit in front of it and record manually ! It's going back for a replacement 05 December 2014
a few minor niggles I am overall happy that it records but it takes a few goes to switch on and I cannot exit recordings unless I switch to media, just a small problem, not sure if I am going to return it 04 December 2014
doesn't work Bought this 7 days ago, can't create folders for recordings but got over that. Set a series record and it didn't work, neither did the second one, now 7 days later it won't play films all the way through, freezes the won't do anything and have to turn it off at wall to reset it again, now it's doing it when you bring up the program guide, it's going back tomorrow 23 November 2014
Neat little box Does everything it says in a neat little package. EPG is a bit hard to read hence 4 stars instead of 5 18 November 2014
Hitachi HDR5T01 No need to worry about set up, easy to use with excellent results. 18 November 2014

Recordings settings

When a program is screened in a 4:3 on Freeview (but all other programs are screened in a 16:9 format), 1. can your device detect and switch the recording format automatically or 2. could I choose the recording format when I put a show on timer?
