PVRs: Compare features & prices Sagemcom RT190-500 review http://www.which.co.uk/technology/tv-and-dvd/reviews/pvrs/sagemcom-rt190-500/review/
The Sagemcom RT190-500 is a twin-tuner Freeview HD PVR with an impressive 500GB hard drive that can store up to 250 hours of standard definition or 125 hours of high-definition programmes. Another version of this PVR is also available with a 320GB hard disk - the RT190-320. Is this PVR box worth our recommendation?

When old pvr packed in got this one ( HD ) ready for when I could afford a new HD tv. It seemed ok bar the slugish guide until the arival of my new panasonic HD tv last month. I thought it was me at first not connecting things properly until my son-in-law checked and agreed. I had never noticed before 50-54 had an intermitant sound fault and when on those channels record kept locking. Fortunately I was within the last month of the guarantee and Argos swopped it for the Humax fox T2 which I find is far better.
I bought this hoping as stated on the box it was easy to set up. I normally have to call one of my children with any electrical set up! I was relieved to find out even I managed to set it up and record straight away no problems. I found the remote clear and easy to use, crystal clear picture and nice HD channels, my only negative comment is a slight delay in pressing the menu button and the guide changing the channel but I can live with that. Overall a good product for the price and I'm very happy.
