I am happy to have the device as part of my TV experience because my scheduling is about to become a lot more inflexible with rehab concluding and school beginning. In these busy times it’s nice to know that no matter how busy I get I’ll never miss an episode of family guy.
The device supports HDMI and 1080p making it an excellent companion to any new TV I may decide to buy in the future.
The only negative point I am aware of thus far is the absence of a digital tuner but this is not a major issue as I do not foresee a switch to digital television in the medium term due to current economic constraints.
As an added bonus the recorder also functions as a DVD player so I can watch my Gilmore Girls in bed at long last.
