Q & As

Strings...

Philips HDTP-8540 1TB Freeview+ HD Digital TV Recorder 1 5 1 1
Returned We took the product back because it repeatedly failed to actually record - whether selecting individual programmes, series linking or manually setting the time. It had a separate problem of repeatedly crashing requiring the whole thing to be turned off and on. We exchanged for a cheaper recorder which does the job perfectly. We've noticed that by comparison the remote for this Philips product feels very cheap by comparison. 05 February 2014
