Summary: I have owned a Pioneer DVD recorder for 6 years and it worked brilliantly. They I decided to join the HD world since freeview became HD. I thought I should get the BR version of this recoder and I did. The machine is fairly complicated and not intuitive to operate. The main problem with it is that it is tooooooo sloooooooooooooooooooow to operate. It takes almost 25 sec to turn on and let you use the remote to do anything.
Summary: Absolutely unforgiveable how can such a great piece of hardware be missing a SIMPLE software to playback media from the network. No DLNA client no SMB/CIFS windows sharing client. Forget this device if you have a media library/NAS and want to be able to playback from it. Unfortunately such a great device is being returned cause its so crippled.
