Technisat Digicorder HD S2x review

In many respects this twin-tuner hi-def PVR is a fine piece of work but, sadly, some silliness creeps in

TechRadar's verdict

"This is a fairly expensive PVR, and this is reflected in the many worthwhile features – notably the network and EPG-related ones – that are included and overall. But the lack of two DVB-S2 tuners is a disappointment that cannot be overlooked. In addition, the eccentricities of the user interface, notably those related to channel management, need addressing in a firmware update. But in many respects, this is a likeable receiver – once you learn to live with its foibles."
