Reliable, excellent but noisy. I bought the 500Gb version of this box and it is generally excellent. Latest software downloaded from MIT London’s website was very easy to install via a 2Gb USB stick. Picture quality on the HD channels is stunning, if you have never seen HD on your shiny new flat screen TV prepare to be amazed at the difference. SD picture quality is also very good and on a par with my TV’s tuner, although I had to amend the Digitalstream’s picture settings slightly (a new menu option added in the September update). Recording is reliable and works well, and on playback there are no glitches (unlike my old Vestel based PVR which would occasionally skip and randomly lock up). EPG appears in less than a second and is clear and well laid out, although only shows 7 channels at a time but you can page up and down and skip forward and backward two hours at a time. You can slso skip forward and back by 24 hours at a time, and there is also a search function. You can plug in an external hard disc and copy…
