BEWARE... Dont buy!! Til Sony has sorted this out!!

had a NEW sony vaio xl201 for testing ang found that this product does not record, especially on standy. this is the newest media centre they produce. tested together with 4 other xl201 and their top of the range xl202 (blu ray) and that has the same tuner problem. Can sometimes record live tv whilst you are watching it BUT on standy timer fails to record because either..
1) a system malfunction
2) loss of tuner signal
3) No tuner found.

Even though you could be watching live tv through the tuner..((( MAINLY BBC1 but more than 50% any ant digital Channel))

Beware We are the first to make Sony aware of this problem.. unless others have this machine elsewhere ( Devon here)to try out that works please post..
