Customer questions and answers for Bush Freeview HD Smart Digital TV Recorder - 500GB.

Question
Is this a Freeview HD recorder?
Are (either of) the twin tuners HD, or do they just upscale standard definition channels?

I've just bought this product, and it turns out the tuners are both standard definition. The upscaling is OKish.

Answer(s)
The BU102ZRH50

is not a "Bush 4GB MP3 Player with LED Display" as state in the Argos answer.

it is a "Bush Freeview+ with DVD recording" !!

Will Argos please take better care in answering the customers questions in future.

To potential customers of this devise, it cannot and never will be able to access More4 or ITV+ on the internet.

you can not record an item from sky using this box asit has no way to out the signal from the skybox to the recorder. The advice you have recieved sadly is wrong, if you had the standard box it would be possible with some creative thought.

Hi,

Yes, however you would only be able to record the program you were watching on sky. You could watch another channel on the televisions own Freeview.

The Argos help teams answer is sadly wrong, this device can only be connected to a TV with HDMI. The has no scart output & the HDMI cable cant be used to link to a sky box.

If this was the non HD box then you can connect it via scart although you can connect you RF cable from your HD box to the Sky box but sadly this wont allow you to record anything.

I hope this is a better answer
