Time to replace PVR?

Time to replace PVR?

My existing HDR-2000T 1TB has recently shown a surprising increase in free space displayed, which has been hovering near full for quite some time. The HDD check shows it as OK, but the Reserved Space is very large - I wonder if it has decided to release some?

If it is time to replace, I don't know which way to go. There doesn't seem to be much choice, and I fear that the latest interfaces have concentrated on appearance rather than functionality.

For me a text EPG shows me all I need to know, and my Smart TV (currently) works fine for the occasional catch-up or YouTube browsing.

One facility that I would really miss on my current Humax is the ability to create folders, and move programmes into them. I also want to be able to select and sort my Favourite channels.

Looks like I don't even have the option of buying the same again unless I find a refurbished one that I could trust. Mmmm.

Your PVR choices for new kit is pretty much Manhattan and Humax, and a Panasonic PVR cum disc spinner.

S/H kit is an option, but the lack of support makes that route iffy, in my book.
