Personal Video Recorder
A digital video recorder (DVR), sometimes referred to by the merchandising term personal video recorder (PVR), is a consumer electronics device or application software that records video in a digital format to a disk drive, USB flash drive, SD memory card, SSD or other local or networked mass storage device.
The term includes set-top boxes (STB) with direct to disk recording facility, portable media players (PMP) with recording, TV gateways with network and local recordings, recorders (PMR) as camcorders that record onto Secure Digital memory cards and software for personal computers which enables video capture and playback to and from a hard disk drive. A television set with built-in digital video-recording facilities was introduced by LG in 2007, followed by other manufacturers.

    Advice on the right PVR?

    Hi All Due to having a fair amount of 'sport' with my new Philips TV, I think I'd like to buy a PVR. The rough spec is: 1) 4K support 2) 2 or more Freeview tuners 3) Satellite input 4) HDD (of course!) 5) Ability to record from satellite and Freeview (2 chans) at the same time. 6) Any clever...

    PVR prices

    I am looking for a new Freeview recorder and the two obvious candidates are the Manhattan T3-R and the Humax Aura which both have good reviews. However, since I started looking for one, the price of the Manhattan has gone up and up while the Humax has remained the same price. When I first looked...

    Would buying an android TV and an android pvr be duplicating functions?

    Hi, my BT Youview Set Top Box has broken, so I need to replace it. But the router is in another room so I think I'll need a pvr that uses wifi and am thinking of the "HUMAX Aura Android TV 4K Freeview Play Recorder with Google Assistant and Chromecast - 2TB". My current TV I bought back in...

    PVR on new 55A6K?

    Hi, just bought a new Hisense 55A6K, I have put a portable hard drive into the USB socket at rear, which it recognises but can’t pause or record live tv, or seem to get that option available. Had the HD working fine on a LG tv, and was hoping it would be a simple setup on the Hisense. The...

    Question Humax PVR and Sonos ARC...No Sound

    Hi all, I don't suppose anyone would know why I'm not getting any sound from my Sonos Arc connected to my Humax PVR via the (Sony's) TV's EARC HDMI inputs. Everything else works, 4K Player, streaming etc, but nothing from the PVR, picture but no sound. The PVR is getting on a bit now, but its...

    Manhattan T3-R Availability

    So my trusty Bush DTR500 has finally kicked the bucket and I've been looking for a replacement. From my research, I think the Manhattan T3-R seems to fit the bill but everywhere seems to be out of stock (unless I'm willing to pay over the odds). Does anyone know if they are running down stock...

    Best PVR 2023 - plus comments please

    Hi guys, Hope all are well. I'm looking for the best PVR to replace my Humax T4000's. These machines won't pick up ITVX, so I'm guessing they will soon miss lots of new channels. I'd also prefer one where we don't spend more on extra garbage remote controls than the machines,,,,,,,,,, an...

    Is All4 ever HD with any PVRs?

    Bewildered newb here. I'm thinking of getting a BT Pro Box (YouView) as a cheap and cheerful way of skipping ads on Freeview. But I'd really like to know whether it is possible to get All4 with this PVR, and if so whether it is in HD. The info I've been seeing is a bit contradictory. Some...

    Resurrect Your Duff Humax HDR-Fox T2 PVR

    I've identified a stock fault with these PVRs. If you have the necessary soldering skills you may be able to resurrect your faulty Humax HDR-Fox T2 PVR by replacing a cheap component - a 4.7uF electrolytic capacitor. With the arrival of colder weather last year our unit sometimes took up to a...
