BEST ON THE MARKET
I've have read the other comments listed and they are all negative, true this unit does hiccup but against all the positives and considering the tasks asked of it it is probably the best of its type on the market. I have installed a 500Gb hard drive into it and use it for all manner of recording storage. The occasional glitch as I said is outweighed by all that is good with this unit.

It's a device that appears physically capable of all the things I want. But the UI is terribly slow to navigate. The EPG is next to useless. Timer recording is annoying. In fact the whole thing is so terribly slow and difficult to use that my wife and I have given up using it for anything other than being a media player from a USB stick - and even then it's clunky.

Sound cuts out. Turns itself off for no reason. Freezes in the middle of recording so you lose everything. Playback stutters. It's been repaired twice with the same issues. When it started again I contacted Ben Baxter at LG I wanted my money back but he said he'd cover the cost of repair. To what end, it's been repaired twice already, same problem, same repairs. Obviously there is a bigger issue here. I loved it when I first bought it and recommended it to a friend he bought the Blu Ray model and has had no problems luckily.

All you need for recording!
It works and can record massive amount of shows. It is easier to list thing the box cannot do then to list what it can do.

Good on paper
I had been in the market for a PVR and the nice chap down at Harvey Norman recommended this. On paper it looks great. Twin tuner, expandable HDD, play most file types, etc. This player does indeed play most file types, including MKV files, which many players do not. What isn't mentioned in the marketing is the incredibly slow start up, slow menu navigation, freezing, messing up recordings, and restarting at random intervals. I am very disappointed with this purchase and wish I had not listened to the Harvey Norman salesman and gone with a different product.
