Clever compact Recorder Easy to set up and operate and I am very hapy with the Recorder - great value for the price paid. 23 July 2014
Good buy Bought for my son as birthday present and so far all working fine and he is very happy. 19 July 2014
Mum happy Bought for my mum for ease of use She has tried others but found them more complicated 24 June 2014
Brilliant Product The product was purchased based on the HDMI connectivity, and it surpassed my expectations on so many levels. Excellent picture quality, easy to install and use once you understand the menu/setup structure and so far, totally reliable. My only 'crtisicm' is based on the Argos on-line description: no mention is made that the HDMI cable is included (which it is), so I bought a cable as a separate item when it was not needed. In all however, I highly recommend this product. 17 June 2014
excellent value for money easy to use, first couple of recordings had end bit missing but all since have been spot on, no problems. would recommend this product 13 June 2014

Would the box send the signal to various locations in the house? Can I operate it remotely from other rooms? If so, what else do I need?
thanks

I have my Sky Box Currently sending signal to all rooms and controlled remotely via magic eyes and remote controls, can I do the same with this?
if this particular box cant achieve this, do you have an alternative box that can?

Answer: 
No it does not.

I posted a Positive review for this box, I have now had time to find all the niggles with it.

I Would NOT recommend buying this now, You will be pleased to start with, then later on you will be annoyed.

It often refuses to record anything, it usually chops the ends or beginnings of shows when it does record.

I also has a 60min limit of timeshifting, if you stay behind the live broadcast for the hour, it will skip to live and you will lose anything you have not watched yet.

Answer: 
You should be able to download at least 100 TV channels and 25 radio channels but it does all depend upon which transmitter your TV is logged on to. But most transmitters should transmit over 100 channels.
