Replacement for Virgins Tivo box - Recommendations?
Grrrrr! We're getting a bit angry now. I dropped our Virgin contract during the summer back down to the basic package as we couldn't justify the huge price for the XL one we had and we never watched any of the channels anyway. It was after we had dropped most of the channels that we began to really notice the Tivos shortcomings. It's slow (Google that one as we are not alone), the menu system sometimes freezes for about 30 seconds and most irritating of all, it shows you all of the channels you are not subscribed to, and if, like me, you like to go up and down the list rather than try and remember 70+ channel numbers it can (well, does) get really annoying having to manually skip dozens of channels you can't even view.
Anyhow, enough is enough and early next year (once Christmas is out of the way) I want to get a Freeview HD/Freesat HD recorder. However, it must meet the following spec:
- Have at least a 500 GB hard drive
- Have apps such as the iPlayer, Netflix etc.
- Be DLNA capable and be able to play MKV files
- Be £250 or less
Does such a beast exist? If you know of one please let me know as well!
*Oh and my Tivo is well ventilated and not overheating. It's just slooooow
