Yes, this receiver will allow you to do timed recordings of programmes. It doesn't contain its own hard drive though, so you'll need to save the programmes on either a USB stick or USB hard drive. While you are recording a Saorview programme, you'll be able to watch a satellite channel, and vice versa.
|Kevin||Second time lucky||I bought this receiver and everything was fine for about 3 months. The unit then froze when on timeshift and I lost all power. However when I contacted Tony at Satellite.ie he was more than helpful and I got a replacement within three days. So far so good. Pleasure to deal with.|
|John||Perfect for us||I bought this item recently and not only were the staff at Satelite.ie very helpful and friendly, the product itself far exceeded my expectations. All we had to do is plug the satellite wire into the box to pick up a good selection of free HD channels. Thank you!|
|Denis||Excellent box and great service - as usual!||Got the Ariva 153 as a replacement for the Ariva 120 which had failed after about 4 years hard labour. The 153 is a better box as it handles HD channels much better and just appears better all round. Tony was very helpful, as usual, in getting around a hiccup with my credit card - thanks again.|
|Marti||Great Service||I ordered it on Monday morning and it arrived Tuesday morning as promised.I just plugged out the Sky box plugged in the new and the channels just came on. I only wish I'd done it before now I could have saved a lot of cash.|
|Mick||perfect service||First off the service l got was the best l ever came across, ordered and delivery was next day but there was a bit mix up called tony he was on top it straight away and was back to me within mins and sorted it, amazing service. As for box setting up no problem just plug in and away it went, Thanks.|
|excellent service||i always return to Tony when i need a receiver, last one I ordered was not working so well and after some troubleshooting i returned the unit and a replacement send straight away. excellent company|
|Great Service - Recommended||Great personal service, what a change from anonymous computer systems & "help" desks. Plugged the box in and away it went!|
|Michael L||Top class customer service. Good product||Service from Tony and Co is second to none. Delivered in two days. Immediate response to emails. The system works really well. Menus are clear. One tiny gripe: the favourites button on the remote could be in a more prominent position given its importance.|
