Bought this to replace my virgin V box as I found I was only watching a few of the channels outside that available on free view and paying a lot for the privilege. I wanted an easy to use recorder and access to on demand channels. This has everything you need, with very easy set up and operation. Instructions are clear and precise. To set it up took about 5 mins which included the initial power up and the channel search and verification of Internet connection. Very easy to use and looks good.
