Fantastic bargain – with a few issues I am moved to write my first review ever of anything because I feel this is such a good product and could be outclassing machines costing so much more. As it is it is a compete bargain. It gives the facility to watch and record Freeview SD and Freeview HD. Many of the reviews here are not correct about the negative sides of the device.Lip synch is not an issue with the updated software (oddly not posted on August’s web site, but given by email, as stated in a review here), but there are some annoying features – some of which August are planning to correct.Before I give a list of annoying ‘features’ I must just say again that at a price below £40 it is an amazing bargain. I looked up to £150 and could not find a device that suited me better. OK it does not have a built in hard drive – but I actually think that is a plus – most of the boxes with built in HDD do not allow you to take the recording off to archive on DVD or computer; so the HDD fills up and you are…
