Purchased one on Saturday from Argos following a thread on this forum. (Had to search round and travel to find a store with one.)
Setting up the TV channels is a pain as it doesn't sort them into channels 1 to 5. This has to be done manually.
Have now transfered two VHS tapes to DVD-RW. I finalised the first disk and tried it in two other players.......it didn't play in either. I then tried recording a further one minute on the disk, then took it out and tried it in the other players and low and behold, the first recording now plays in both.
I had the same experience with the second disk. Wouldn't run in another player until a second recording was put on the disk after finalising.
Not sure what is happening, but I have found a solution!
The timer is also a pain for frequent use, not having video plus or the ability to quick record in 30 minute intervals.
Overall, pleased with the results so far for the price.
