Cello 22″ C22230F 12v LED HD TV – a previous customer that the base is not as good as t could be

Very happy with this purchase.

Good price, picture, spec, am happy.

Sound is a little on the tinny side, works well on the narrowboat.

Features of 22″ Cello C22230F 12v LED HD TV with Built in Freeview & DVD Player

Just what we wanted for our caravan.

I usually take a small tv from home when in the motorhome but it is dated now and not 12v. Bought this as a replacement. It does the job but the sound is tinny by comparison.

Bought for using in our motor home as it has 12v facility.

This TV works on both 12v and 240v and comes with both power leads

Perfect for caravanning when there is no hook up. And the delivery was very quick, thank youthe reviews for the make of tv were very very good which is why we purchased this make.

I agree with a previous customer that the base is not as good as t could be, but i was able to fix it. I purchased this tv to use in my caravan on 12volts, this is ok if you are connected to the mains, so i obtained a lead that plugged into the 12volt socket and into the tv. The delivery time was very good and so was the after sales team, after contacting them with my enquiry there response was excellent have just returned of holiday and the tv worked well.

Excellent purchase for caravan so much cheaper than the ones at caravan shows.

We bought this television for our caravan, we ordered just the correct size, it was in great condition when arrived, it works brilliant great picture.

Bought for motorhome, works perfectly on 12v & electric & also has the dvd player, excellent.

Bought this for our motorhome. I have given this 5 stars at this early stage, as so far, i can’t find fault with the tv or the service from the supplier/delivery process. The tv itself is a very nice wee unit and sits in the van well, we have it installed on a brateck tv bracket. Have used it on 240v to test in the house the day it arrived, but its only been used in the van on 12v since, without issue. Very easy to setup, tune stations, customise picture, sound etc. I had read some reviews where folk had issue with sound/picture quality – but can honestly say after having a wee play with the settings (very easy to do) that the sound and picture are excellent. Dvd works very well and image quality is again very good, we watched avatar and we were both pleasantly surprised. Just need to see how robust it is now to test its longevity. I will update (if i remember) as the months progress if anything worthwhile occurs.

Record live TV through USB stick or external hard drive

We put it up on the shelf in the campervan and the picture went all “negative” its ok on the table level with your eyes but really weird if its higher up ??.

When we got this tv for our motorhome i was a little bit worried as some people had said that the sound was tinny and the viewing angle was poor, but at over half the price of the more expensive rival brand i was willing to risk it and i was glad i didthe picture is great and it has a decent viewing angle. The sound is not as good as our full size tv at home (obviously it has smaller internal speakers being a little tv), but for a small space like a motorhome or caravan it’s fine. I found adjusting the standard settings and changing the sound to film mode improved the sound quality too, so it’s worth trying different settings. It plays dvd discs and you can also watch files that are stored on your pen drive, which is great if you’re camping in an area with poor tv reception. I’m really pleased we went with the cello and the 22inch screen is the perfect size.

A good sharp picture and clear sound.

Prompt delivery, excellent customer service. Tv works great off the battery with the adapter without much power drain but as other reviews about poor sound, sound has to be adjusted each time you use it and sound quality is improved and not too bad after adjustment.

7 day EPG for TV viewing plan

Very good arrived on time and is working ok.

Not the best picture in the world but works great on 12v with low power consumption. The tuner although quite acceptable would have benefited with more gain as in low signal camp sites it struggles. Plenty of features, in the world of 12v tvs this is quite good for the money.

Built in DVD player for & USB facility for a complete media setup

Tv arrived in perfect condition within time scale. It was easy to set up and works beautifully. Trying to register guarantee either online or by phone is proving impossible.

Love it no wobbly stand brilliant quality. At first the stand was wobbly but that was before i realised i have used the wrong screws. Pretty obvious when i saw they were three screws and four screws in different sizes and there wasn’t any spare parts. Also the instructions clearly shows that.

Legs not wobbly at all and i’m a disaster with screwdriver etc. Great picture and sound and easy to set up. Arrived promptly so overall very happy and great value.

Watch your favourite programmes in stunning HD quality with the built-in Freeview HD tuner

Great for the bedroom and a tidy solution for the dvd.

A perfect present for my grandsons bedroom. He thinks its great because he can operate the dvd player by himself at 4 years old.

Excellent with the build in hd free view. . Works brilliantly for my mother in law in her nursing home room where space is limited for both hdtv, dvd’s and usb stick photos. Great kitchen or bedroom tv. Not yet tested if ok for computer screen or xbox use by kids or students but suspect it will be.

Make sure this fits
by entering your model number.

The picture is great, really clear and crisp but it’s been let down by some small things. The fixing screws for the stand don’t fit correctly so my tv is leaning forward slightly and wobbles if moved. Also the remote has an annoying lag and sometimes takes a few seconds before the channel changes.

Slow on channel change and volume change. Does not eject dvd disc as stated.

Worked straight out of the box, simple to set up and good quality picture.

2 HDMI ports and built in DVD player make this the ideal TV for any space.

A very nice tv packaged and delivered as per instructions?.

You can use it as a computer monitor as well, using the hdmi inputs, also has a usb socket. Got to be one of the best deals out there.

For the price it is a great bedroom tele.

Great value for money, good size screen with clear picture and sound. It is in a bedroom as an alternative tv, escaping from endless top gear.

Never miss your favourite programmes with built in Freeview and PVR function, enabling you to pause, rewind and record live TV.

Arrived on time good value for money.

Excellent tv, picture very good, thank you.

Looked at several other sets but reading the reviews went for this glad i did its brilliant.

Brilliant tv good sound great looks lightweight and easy to fit on the wall as lightweight fantastic value *****new kitchen tv and work top space freed up.

Brilliant tv for the low price.

Great item very pleased with my order.

Comments from buyers

“Expensive, but ideal for caravan use, Avtex 18.5 L188DR, Expensive but Great quality’s”

Fantastic photograph , simple to use, performs brilliantly in the caravan would defo recomend.

It arrived immediately and inside of minutes it was on and tuned in. Only 4 stars as it was purchased for the caravan and it is not the climate to test out there yet. He building absolutely gives me the impression that this is perfectly produced and will stand the check with out a dilemma. At house it is a very good music and photo equilibrium. Once in the caravan, i will update this.

We bought ours for our campervan to perform dvd’s from a 12v leisure battery. The good quality of the photograph is wonderful – really excellent. The seem excellent is superior, but could be superior and there is surely area on the back of the case for greater than the two a person inch speakers it arrives with. The document up usb function is a little bit of gimmick as you need to have to be there to push document, in order to record anything. I feel these tv’s are wonderful for a 12v unit, but fairly a way at the rear of fashionable tv’s. Merge with wall brackets and speedy launch mounts, furthermore a bag and it is really a fantastic asset to out campervan. A several months on and the fuse in it has absent 2 times.

Excellent top quality tv with great picture and seem quick to tune in where by at any time you are very delighted.

What an enhancement on our earlier model.

Delighted with this tv seems great attractive measurement lightweight beautiful clear picture.

This is an superb tv for use in the caravan, which is our intended use. It can be considered from pretty wide angles without the need of detriment, and the seem is realistic for a slim tv. The handy brief tune button need to make established-up simple for touring. I personally imagine it’s dear but hopefully it’s going to be more robust than cheaper possibilities. We anticipate making use of it off the caravan 12v offer as the electric power transformer for mains use is in-line – myself i might have appreciated to see the transformer as component of the plug assembly (this would make it far better for wall mounted use) but this is a minimal difficulty.

Tv pretty superior audio and image quite good,supply was quick on on time would endorse this corporation.

Incredibly superior assistance would use again.

First time shopping for a tv for caravan tuned in right now and obtained a excellent photograph easy to established up and use.

Even though the tv for my motorhome was a lot a lot more high-priced than most other helps make the picture from all viewing angles is quite very good. Lots of other capabilities this kind of as just one button channel research and battery check out and signal excellent appears rather special for this sort of tv. Have just applied the moment so i are unable to remark on trustworthiness.

The width of this tv is truly 449mm (49. 7cm) as said in the spec, obtaining to return it as it will not fit in the gap we have. Appears to be effectively produced, very upset with the measurement big difference and a total and complete waste of everyone’s time.

Shocked that box was not sellotaped, and no defense on monitor. But telly seems and seems great.

Denon AVR-X3400H 7 – Works well good value

Speaker connectors really do not enable banana plugs so speaker cables will have to be stripped back and wrapped all over the metallic posts. Fiddly but a one particular-off job during set up. Practical labels are supplied for the speaker cables. Will work wonderful with sonos link optical connection to cd input. You will require a qr application to obtain the instruction manual. I have ibooks so it was straightforward.

This is my third denon amp over the last 10 years. Combination of upgrade and the last one getting the green light of death so decided to renew. Having played with the many settings over the years and not really knowing what i was doing, this time i invested in watching some videos of other denon owners and wow what i have learned and how different my system now sounds. Biggest learning was setting the main speakers in a certain way to force the low end bass through my new sub-woofer. Nick cave has never sounded so good. Great feature to be able to set each input source with a different speaker configuration and with a combination of sky, smart tv and sonos this has provided much tech fun over the last 48 hours along with trying to get the audio delay right to sync the lips on the video only downside is that i have 2 front, a center, a sub-woofer and 2 rear speakers but not the two side surround speaker and you cannot configure that set up and use the audyssey auto set up for the rear speakers without the side speakers but just had to play around manually instead. Would recommend product and seller.

Outstanding item all over again from denon, would advocate.Here are the specifications for the Denon AVR-X3400H 7:

  • Make sure this fits
    by entering your model number.
  • Now works with Alexa
  • 7.2 channel AV Receiver with 180W per channel
  • Built-in Wi-Fi with 2.4GHz/5GHz dual band support; built-in Bluetooth
  • 8 HDMI inputs incl. 1 front with full HDCP 2.2 support; 3 HDMI outputs
  • Airplay, Bluetooth, Internet Radio, Spotify Connect, Tidal, Deeper, Network Audio Streaming

As it claims in most of the critiques, a awesome amp, simple to established up, and highly effective ample.

Performs effectively with temperamental sony tv. Well worth the revenue and better than many others i have owned eg sony.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Never sounded better
  • Built on years of quality, but with a cheap remote
  • Excellent picture and sound quality. Easy to set up and use. Buy one.

Changed a ten yr aged marantz 7001 receiver. Good sound quality, easy to put in and established up.

Purchased this as a substitute for my 15 calendar year old denon avr-2802. I’m definitely pleased with how it smartly handles audio signals occur from numerous hdmi sources. When i’m taking part in audio by my apple television set (communicated as stereo) the denon drops to just my still left & ideal. On my outdated denon, it’d normally try out to combine to the centre channel unless i improved to a direct stereo manner. (of course, fifteen years aged but it handled optical audio enter like a champ. )the only disappointment with the avr-x3400h is the cheap distant they ship. It is gentle and feels flimsy. The old a person was a little bit heftier and balanced perfectly in your hand. And, for the value, it should really be an rf remote so you never need to have line-of-sight (and would be an enhancement for the multi-zone functions).

Upgraded from an outdated denon 1905 receiver and wow. My jbl speakers under no circumstances sounded better. Brief easy set-up, anything labored efficiently and effortlessly.

Silly me, i broke 1 of the antenna within just the initially five minutes of unpacking it. I was leaning the tv set forward and failed to realise it was pushing towards the ariel till i heard a snap. Its however there hanging on but the minor plastic notch that retains the bending ariel on at the swivel joint broke off. I don’t think it is really worthy of obtaining it preset nonetheless but it does trouble me being brand name new and all that. To be truthful i have little experience with receivers and most of this is all manufacturer new to me. The only hi fi machines i have prior to had been two technics 1210 mk2’s a wide variety of mixers with an old pioneer amplifier. I have polk t sequence fronts and centre with polk signature series s15 rear speakers and i borrowed a few of satellite from my gaming logitech z906 setup for the time getting for the sides just for the additional effect. Oh and a wharfdale powercube spc10 sub. I experienced some trouble getting sound from my sub at to start with but i skipped the environment up procedure with the mic for the speakers at the set up stage just to hear to the sound output from the polk speakers. I am going to go again and established it all up properly before long but i am nevertheless in the middle of making a £5k gaming rig which i want to get out to the way initial.

A alternative for our old avr, easy to established up.

B&O PLAY by Bang & Olufsen Beoplay M5 Music System Multiroom Wireless Home Speaker – Natural : Good sound – if you can get it to work

I would give it 4. 5 stars if i could. Sounds great, looks even better and is very easy to use. We love this speaker and use it all the time. Its so easy to use on airplay and bluetooth. We have an audio system throughout our home but this gets used more then anything. The reason i have not given it 5 stars is because its expensive, and for that price i think there should be better sound options. Its very punchy, which is great for certain types of music, but when listening to classical for instance, you can change the audio settings on the source equipment but it still has too much base. Pros:looks stylish and classysounds very goodvery easy to usebest of all the wireless speakers i have usedcons:pricebit to punchy.

Given bang & olufsen’s reputation i did not expect to receive one of their products costing the equivalent of a southern rail season ticket and end up rating it as simply, ‘ok’. Sound = the sound quality is blissful. The bass is strong, i like it erring that way. So strong on reggae that at full volume the furniture will start migrating across the room. Likewise for big numbers it will fill a house – terrace dwellers beware. The experts at b&o also have that knack of producing clarity when you want music at low volume. There is no fuzziness or fudge in the sound. All of the foregoing is just as well because good luck if you want to change any of the settings.

Five star sound – four star frustration in setting up. Sometimes you have to forgive a lot in life – some things are worth it. This speaker is one of them. The sound quality would move you to tears, it is so rich, clear and velvety. It’s as if the singer is in the room with you. Listening to natalie merchant’s new tigerlily recordings on this is utterly spellbinding. The bass from this speaker is phenomenal – maybe a little too much at times, but it certainly fills the room. However connectivity issues would make you weep in utter frustration. These have been amply detailed in other reviews – all i can say is, they aren’t exaggerating. Bluetooth is a breeze – straight out of the box.

Received delivery of the m5 today (prime delivery fantastic as usual) i have numerous b&o products and as normal this product doesn’t disappoint, in fact it’s surpassed all expectation for such a compact device, multiroom works perfectly and the bass response is fantastic, actually sounds better than my beosound 1, but at nearly a third of the cost.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Very accurate and easy to use
  • Love it. Just have to be careful and place
  • A Must Buy Device

I purchased this one directly from the skulpt website last year before they were selling on amazon. The only time i’ve had different readings is if you scan even a centimetre or two away from where you performed the previous scan. It’s always reliable in that i when i see improvements in the mirror and do a scan the skulpt backs it up. It’s a great motivation tool too. The only annoyance for me is when trying to scan the muscle groups on your back. It’s very awkward to do and much better if you have some assistance. Since i’ve been back on the weights the past few months it’s certainly great to see the improvements logged and if i ever stop and start again i’ll know the levels i can reach from previous scans. Definitely a device i would advise purchasing if you’re serious about keeping in shape and keeping track of your progress too.

Only used it ince so far but very good so far accurate and reliable.

Satisfied with its operation.

Probably the most accurate body fat measuring device available. I compared it to the inbody scan and it was within 0. 5% and inbody / chisel says 14. If you need to track bf% this is the best tool for your money.

GoStreamer G8 Quad Core 4K Ultra HD Wi-Fi Android TV Box : Great little gadget

Opened the box connected to wifi/ not ethernet. Used the o t a updater for latest firmware and then connected to latest pre installed kodi 16. 1and if you no your way round kodi you will know how to install add ons and away you go. Then installed bbc i player. Web browser is lightening fast and installing apps is childs play with app store. Uhd movies stream effortlessly and after the update ethernet works a treat. Have ordered more as the 2gb of ram is what i needed.

Great for sports, films and tv. Bought as a replacement for my mx 2 box, which was getting a bit tired. This doesn’t come pre loaded with all add-ones but i followed instructions that i found on youtube. Just follow them to the letter or it won’t work. Sports, movies, tv all work well. Excellent picture and no freezing seen yet. New processor makes streaming very fast, and navigating the box is faster too. Better to connect via ethernet than wifi. Only slight disappointment was the response i had from the supplier when i needed help trying to load the sports devil addon.

Definitely need a keypad remote which you have to buy separately. Still a bit hit and miss depending what do you want to use it for and i’ve had to re-install kodi two or three times.

Not made for the latest 4k – 60 fps hdmi 2. 0 tv’s. 4k don’t work as the g8 box only has hdmi 1. 4 and its should have hdmi 2. 0 which would have made this backwards compatible. I have tried this box on my samsung 4k tv ue65hu8500 which has the latest hdmi 2. 0 ports and also used a hdmi 2. 0 cable but the picture breaks up when setting to 4k output due to the old spec the hdmi 1. 4 port has built into the g8 box, this g8 box is not capable of outputing 4k iva hdmi unless you have a first gen 4k tv, and should have been fitted with a hdmi 2. 0 systems can transfer data at up to 18gbps, and 10. 4 can only do 8 bit colour at 24/30 fps where 2. 0 can do 12 bit colour at 60 fps,if your tv only does 24/30 fps in 4k with hdmi 1.

Had to update some of the apps but it runs very smoothly with no issues. It did have almost everything installed as standard. Needs a decent internet connection if you plan on streaming content but it does give you an option to download instead in some apps. I bought the wireless keyboard remote as well which makes using it a whole lot easier. Paid £62 as a lightning deal and seems decent value for the specs. Have not got a 4k tv so cannot comment on that aspect.

Work ok but constantly buffering. Work ok but constantly buffering. I tried ethernet over powerline – forget it – too slow. Over wifi it is faster but the main factor is your internet service provider. They seem to be able to detect traffic and throttle accordingly. I have, what appears to be an adequate internet package but appears to be buffering constantly.

Great for watching many programs first class.

The quality of this product is very good, after i bought it and use, there no problems, i believe it is very durable. I often re. Good quality for the price fast delivery. Great product at a modest price received product in timely fashion. Product is just as described in details. Works great, showed up on time. All around good experience with product and seller.

This media box has exceeded my expectations. I was used to xbmc having previously had a modded original xbox, so kodi was easy to set up. I am very happy with both hardware and the software loaded on this box.

Fantastic bit of kit well worth the money.

Sony CMT-SBT20B Hi-Fi System – Great stereo for the price

Great stereo for the price, with one or two little niggles stopping me handing out a fifth star. It’s easy to set up, but suffers from a lack of presets (only numbered 1-4 on the handset meaning an annoying fumble for the other saved stations) for the dab. It’s a looker – brushed chrome and gloss black glass, nice lcd. Bluetooth is a great addition and picks up my iphone every time without any hassle (it doesn’t require being re-connected after initial set up. ) the weirdest thing is it forgets which radio preset it was on when put on standby and always reverts to the first saved station (at least, i can’t find anything in the instructions that changes this. )sound quality is good, certainly not great; the unit lacks bass even with the settings ramped up, and it won’t rattle the windows but for a smaller room it’s fine (i’m using it in a kitchen). Final annoyance is the cd mechanism engages whenever it comes out of standby so you get that distinctive ‘crunch’ as it gears up, even if you want to just use bluetooth or radio. Other than those things, the price is good for what you get and i’d mostly recommend this.

Station presets still trying to fathom them out so again panasonic was so easy compared to this remote control. Speakers so flimsy so connected my panasonics from my previous audio/cd unit. Station presets still trying to fathom them out so again panasonic was so easy compared to this remote control. Slightly worried that the 3 amp fuse blew – very unusual. Beware speaker leads have a weird connectors that fit into the audio unit so if you want to connect other speakers you have to cut the leads and solder them back.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Seems good quality – neat and small as
  • Nice and compact
  • Great stereo for the price

I mainly bought it to play my cd’s on. The details on screen suggest it has a dab radio, it doesn’t, the radio is just fm.

Seems good quality – neat and small as. Having has our old unit for 15 years hope this one does same time. Seems good quality – neat and small as well.

  • Disappointing gift
  • mine in a store of record players it sound GOOD it has bassy kind of speakers and doesn’t destroy

My wife bought me this for christmas and i have it in my office at work. For the price it has been great, reliable and a decent sound. I contacted customer service about replacement stylus and they got back straight away, so i was impressed with that. You can also buy speakers for £99 if you want to boost sound, but i am happy with it as is.

Hauppauge WinTV-quadHD PCIe TV Receiver – Excellent card I am using it with Nextpvr and kodi

Excellent bit of kit works fine on win 10.

Great 4 tuner solution for plex dvr. For use with plex this card shows up as two separate tuners that need to be individually added but afterwards work in the same group to be allocated to streams or recording without any user input. Installation is as straightforward as pci-e cards go and you can switch the bracket for a low profile one if you’re slapping this in a thinner pc like a htpc. For use with windows just install the driver only for use with plex, i can’t speak for the wintv software since it’s the sort of thing i would avoid like the plague as they are usually stuck in the 90s design wise, the wintv software is also known to cause problems with plex so give it a miss. I use windows server 2012 and i had no luck scanning for channels until i downloaded the essentials media pack from microsoft, one to watch out for. Signal and picture quality are excellent and with plex dvr it really brings tv and recording into the future.

Hauppauge’s best tv tuner yet. The hauppauge win-tv quad is an excellent low-profile tv tuner card. Actually it has four tuners, although why someone would ever need this many is beyond me. This card can be adapted to fit a low-profile slot, typical of those found in sff (small-form factor) machines. I have installed this card into my dell optiplex 990 sff, and it fits perfectly into a spare pci-e slot, sitting alongside a low-profile graphics card. The low-profile bracket is included in the kit, as is a very nice little ir remote control unit, and an ir receiver that plugs into the card itself. Speaking of connections, this card actually has a standard uk-style co-axial input, meaning that no special cables or ‘f’ connectors are required to connect the card to your digital tv aerial. With a strong signal, this card can detect all of the expected digital tv channels, along with a selection of digital radio channels too. Picture quality is excellent, especially when viewing hd channels. On the software side of things, i did not install the software from the included cd, instead electing to download the latest version of wintv 8. Here are the specifications for the Hauppauge WinTV-quadHD PCIe TV Receiver:

  • Enter your model number
    to make sure this fits.
  • System Requirements: Windows Media Center in Windows 7 or Windows 8, Sound and graphics with support for DirectX 9 or higher, PCI Express slot, x1
  • Quad clear QAM digital cable TV receivers. Watch and record up to four clear QAM digital cable TV channels at the same time. Built-in cable TV splitter allows you to make one connection to cable TV. Note: not all cable TV networks send clear QAM channels. Please check with your local cable operator for the availability of clear QAM digital cable TV.
  • Minimum processor: Core2Duo 2.93Ghz or faster.Windows Media Center in Windows 7 or Windows 8
  • Supported TV standards: ATSC HD TV, Stereo / dual channel sound. Four tuners on one half height PCI Express board. WinTV-quadHD will fit in both full and half height PC’s. Watch, pause or record up to four ATSC or clear QAM HD TV programs at the same time. Includes a Hauppauge remote control, with 1 meter IR receiver cable. Includes the WinTV v8 application, which give you TV-in-a-window or TV full screen, plus picture-in-picture. Also works with Windows Media Center (included in Windows 7 and optional in Windows 8). The WinTV-quadHD is seen as 4 tuners so you can watch one TV program or record up to 4 TV programs at the same time. ATSC is free HD TV for the U.S. and Canada. Clear QAM is digital cable TV (please contact your cable TV provider to see if clear QAM is available in your area)
  • TV recording formats: Transport stream (the original transmitted format, without any quality loss). ATSC is free over-the-air HD TV.

Excellent sample of a very rare product these days. An excellent product if you want some serious tv capabilities in your pc. One thing i miss is the lack of ability to add encryption card in the card itself. Just don’t loose the key of their software.

  • Hauppauge’s Best TV Tuner yet

Excellent bit of kit works fine on win 10.

Runs well and as product say’s allows multi recording of tv stations cool as if you are like me a few programs. Fitted into pc and had to download cd from hauppauge, which if your ok at going online and searching for correct device software and drivers is ok. Runs well and as product say’s allows multi recording of tv stations cool as if you are like me a few programs you enjoy all on at same tv.

This works superbly well in my windows 7 mce build. The signal is clear and its great having 4 tuners. The drivers also work well and i have no issues with suspend/sleep.

Seems very good for the money so far. Drivers downloaded and installed ok,. Windows and media center saw it fine straight away and the recorded picture looks exactly like the ones i get with the dvb-s2 cards (hauppauge wintv-hd).

I have installed this in a windows 8. 1 machine acting as a server with a celeron j1900 processor to replace 3 usb tuners. The recordings are better quality, with less dropouts than my previous setup. Unlike some of the other reviewers i have not noticed any increased boot up times. Good value for money in comparison to other quad t2 tuners.

Running on win 7 64bit, amd 8 core cpu @ 4ghz, 32gb ddr3 ram and a samsung 850 evo with recordings and pause buffer sent to a seperate drive to the win 7 drive. I don’t use media center, never have. Why would you lol 😉 the win tv 8. 5 software is fine for recording, vlc takes care of playback. The tv guide is improved slightly over ver. In general its flawless at recording either manually or using the tv guide.
