Customer reviews and ratings

Bush Freeview HD Smart Digital TV Recorder - 500GB. 3.8 5 30 33
Small & compact For the price, a reasonable recorder. HD quality quite good, however the "Smart" feature only consists of being able to access BBC i Player when connected to the internet. This I found a little dissapointing compared to "Smart" TV's. This being the only negative, I give the recorder a "good" rating. 07 October 2014
Easy :-) Easy to set-up Easy to record Easy to play-back One flaw ... Regular channels barely have a reception. If you want to watch BBC1 or 2, ITV or Channel 4, you have to watch the HD channels (101 to 104) why is there less attention paid to picking up the regular signal? 25 July 2014
This product does what it says it will do For the price it is good value. The HD option was a good choice. Whilst you can record one channel and view another, it would have been nice to be able to watch a recorded channel as another is recorded but more expensive recorders have this option. Having also a Bush TV the remote controls are similar but not swapable! 08 July 2014
Not a bad product I do like this product and I'm pleased I have it however my last one I had to change because it wouldn't record anything. Very simple to use and worked as soon as I plugged it in. It can be annoying at times esp when deleting items that are on a series link it takes you back to the beginning everytime you want to delete so it takes ages. Overall I'm happy with this, if I do get another in future I would probably put a bit more to and get a more expensive one. Good product for the price. 01 July 2014
Easy! super quality - dead easy to use. as a box seems easier than sky plus 24 June 2014

Answer:
Hello there,

The USB port on these is just for software updates only. It is not possible to transfer recorded media either to or from the boxes.

ethernet connection

1 month, 3 weeks ago
Can the Ethernet connection of the recorder be used as the 'output' to provide a direct connection to an Ethernet socket on a laptop so that recorded programs can be viewed straight from recorder to laptop screen

to summarize is either of the following possible?:

1. 'directly' 'socket to socket' connection
0r
2. connection via a router i.e. socket>router>socket

to view recordings

Answer:
Hello,

Unfortunately transferring recorded data is not a function of an Ethernet cable, so you will be unable to play back recorded material through an Ethernet cable

ethernet connection

1 month, 3 weeks ago
can the ethernet connection be used as an output 'connection' from the recorder into say a laptop and the laptop's ethernet connection used as an input [from the recorder] so that recorded material can be 'played back' and viewed directly on the laptop either by:

1. direct [socket to socket] connection
or
2. via a router :i.e recorder> router>laptop

thanks
