About this deal

Another important aspect are the subtitles – if you watch a show with subtitles (which can be turned on and off easily with a dedicated button), recording that show will keep the subtitles available – and you can again turn them on and off with the press of a button. Explore featured on demand programmes from across all of the apps, categorised into Comedy, Movies, Sport and more. Whether you need to make a cup of tea or skip back and replay a great moment, the T2-R is always recording the channel that you’re watching, so you never miss a second. And the T2-R nicely whets the appetite for the company's incoming T3-R, which adds streaming bells and whistles. If you can connect the device directly to your router with an Ethernet cable (you can use a powerline adapter if your router is on a different floor), it’ll download the updates from the internet.

Very easy guide and menu system coupled with a remote that can be taught TV remote Power, AV and Volume buttons make it an excellently designed package. Unfortunately we very rarely watched any of the sky channels and realised we were just paying for the pause, rewind, record and series link abilities.It happens more often at night and is very prevalent in coastal areas and at times of high pressure. In areas with bad reception, some channels might not look good, or worse – they might not even get found. Some (for example, Planet Knowledge) are slick on-demand portals where ad-supported programmes are selected for playback. It was not possible to set an instant recording on a channel immediately after using an MHEG red button service on that channel. The joy of free Freeview has over 70 TV channels, 15 HD channels* and 27 of the top 30 channels in the UK**.

When a partial or failed series recording is re-recorded by the T2•R, the original recording will be deleted, unless it is in the process of being viewed. Fixed an issue that could cause intermittent video freezing/stuttering with high-bitrate HD recordings. g. addition of a new multiplex) is signalled by the broadcasters, the T2-R will display a prompt to retune. So far it's recorded everything I want, and the recording process is extremely simple and all done on one button, record, delete, save, series link. I don't know if the Guide is buffered, but it is very quick to load, instantaneous to navigate with no 'loading or waiting' messages seen.

That's not a showstopper so I think that I may well try one, once I can find somewhere that sells them.

One thing to remember about Freeview recordings, is that the recording is as good as your reception.If the show you want to record is part of series, you can easily ask the device to record the whole series. Connecting all our boxes to the internet is also the easiest way for them to receive software updates, ensuring you’re always receiving our latest and greatest service. Of course, WiFi would have been a nice touch, but upping the costs mainly for software updates is indeed not very cost-effective. g. BBC ONE NE at channel 1 and BBC ONE WALES at channel 800, the system will always prioritise the primary channel for recordings. For some reason, the “Get Started” manual ignores these ports, but an added leaflet explains that they’re used to update the box’ software.
