Philips Freeview+ HD Digital Smart TV Recorder - 500GB. 2.9 5 14 14
Easy to set up. Had to return this item as picture kept freezing, sound would also go at times whilst you were watching something. It's a shame as it's a good quality picture when it works & very easy to set up. 03 June 2014
compact and smart Very useful little box which works beautifully with my Philips Smart TV and is so easy to use 21 January 2014
Poor performance and frustrating operation We had high hopes for the DVR but these were soon dashed when the unit froze at least 3 times in the first day of operation. Updated the firmware and software expecting all bugs to be cleared. The unit still freezes and now has the habit of stopping recording before end of film or program. The menu jumps to alternative recordings when trying to select an item to watch. A power down again required to rectify. Hoping customer support provides some assistance 29 December 2013
BOUGHT BY PHILIPS NAME Maybe it's me but the channel listing is out of order and I can't seem to find a way of editing. Also the unit keeps freezing and I have to unplug for a little while before the unit will work again, only had the unit for 3 days and it's been unplugged about six times. Light on the front of the unit flickers between red and green and doesn't settle down, sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't The programmes in the library sometimes won't open. 18 November 2013

Answer:
Thank you for your question.

The Philips Freeview+ HD Digital TV Recorder with Smart - 500GB has not been tested abroad. For this reason I am unable to guarantee that this item will work in France.

Answer:
Hi,

As what apps and functions are available on the Philips Freeview+ HD Digital TV Recorder are controlled by Philips and not Argos, I recommend getting in touch with Philips directly here: http://www.support.philips.com/supp...

Have a good day.
