High quality, fantastic picture This is Sony’s first high definition Freeview hard disk recorder, making Sony among the first major electronics brands to launch a Freeview+ HD player in the UK. Freeview HD (high definition) is gradually being rolled out across the UK and new players are being launched as the market grows. Standard definition (SD) Freeview uses the DVB-T standard, whereas Freeview HD uses DVB-T2, meaning that in order to get Freeview in high definition, you’ll need to buy a new box with a DVB-T2 tuner inside.Sony’s SVR HDT-500 Freeview+ HD box contains the necessary DVB-T2 tuner for receiving Freeview in high definition, and also contains a 500GB hard disk drive for recording TV programmes. In fact, the SVR HDT-500 contains two DVB-T2 tuners, meaning you’re able to record two programmes simultaneously. If you’ve ever used a Sky+ HD box, this works along the same principle. You can pause live TV, rewind, skip forward (though no further than the point at which the live broadcast has got to)…

A Great Product I have had several PVRs previously but decided to get an HD PVR. Firstly my compliments to Amazon for truly amazing service, ordered 11:30 Sunday received 11:00 Monday. I unpacked the unit connected it up and everything worked fine. The menus are straightforward and the picture and sound quality is superb. You cannot tell whether you are watching live TV or a recording. Others have said that the fan is noisy, well compared to my last PVR (from a different manufacturer) it is silent. You can just hear it if you mute the TV sound and get closer to it (1.5 m). I would thoroughly recommend this product, well upto the standard you would expect from Sony.
