Summary: I bought this top box as a gift for my husband for Christmas. It was very easy to set up and use, although, we need to put the TV volume up really high when watching through the box and need to remember to turn the volume back down if returning to the TV!! We like being able to create folders to store all like for like films and programs together.
Summary: I bought the ICECRYPT T2400 FREEVIEW HD SET TOP BOX AND PVR from Tesco Direct for £130 in August 2013. It worked reasonably well but, like others have stated, it doesn't always record all episodes of a series link. For example, it will record the 8.30 pm episode of Coronation Street, but not the 7.30 episode. It will only fast forward or rewind up to 16x (my ancient Humax would FF 32x) You can't delete any recorded programmes whilst recording something.
Summary: I have had this Icecrypt model since November 2011. I expected a few teething problems but not to be in the same position over 18 months later. This model doesn't work as described and is full of bugs. The firmware has not been updated since February 2012 and only excuses are offered. I believed those excuses initially but now it is obvious customers are being fobbed off.
Summary: Got this last year, froze a lot of time but just rebooted and accepted it. Failed to tune correctly and manafacture accepts it was a bug (no fix) after getting worse and worse, it stopped working and was sent back. damaaged in transit so going to throw it away and get a Humax. you pay for what you get for, so pay the extra £50 and get something that will last more then 9 months.
Summary: have had an Icecrypt 2400 2GB Freeview HD PVR for 3 months now and have to say I'm very impressed. The EPG (whilst not as easily understood as Sky) is very comprehensive and works flawlessly. The Picture Quality and Sound are first class. I love movies and record loads specially in HD and because the Disk is so huge I can have loads of them without a space problem.
Summary: Well after trying several boxes (thanks Amazon) I seem to have found the near perfect combination of storage,ease of use and stunning looks and very importantly fan noise(silent) The set up is easy,like the EPG with the channel window and audio ,searching is a ok,still cant understand how to search for a specific program (more me being to thick).
Summary: Bought this as anHD upgrade after readind various reviews and am pleased I did. The set up procedure was very smooth with no unexpected problems and didn't take too long. The remote's a little confusing but you soon get used to it and it has a lot of features which are useful such as being able to search all the films that are on during the week. Another nice feature is the USB port which allows you to upload MP3 and picture files onto the 1Tb hard drive.
Summary: Item ordered shortly before Christmas, arrived within expected time frames, but was poorly packaged arriving in the retail box only (no other form of protection). This of course meant that it was looking a little tatty\scrached\scuffed upon arrival. Not ideal for a present. I can't comment on the item itself.
Summary: Only had this for a month so still discovering all the options available with this excellent PVR. The twin tuner has enabled me to record and enjoy programmes that I could not access before due to the limitation of my previous DVD recorder. Even though HD is not yet available where I live, the existing picture quality seems to be superior to before using the Icecrypt.
Summary: I have owned one of these units about 2 months now, and find it a wonderful piece of kit. the quality of picture is very good, it has 1 TB of recording space (1000Gb), has 2 usb slots and connects via the hdmi input. For the price, no others can match its spec and capacity.
