Sharp TU-R160H Freeview Personal Video Recorder - Pocket-lint


This is Sharp's first stab at the PVR market to accompany a range of high performance LCD TVs. Following up on the recent success of rivals such as the

160GB hard drive for up to around 90 hours of TV, attractive front panel design, effective remote and panel controls

You can’t record or time-shift two channels at once, below average picture quality, frustrating time-shifting functionality, no common interface for PayTV

At around £230 you’re paying about the standard price for a 160GB Freeview PVR with these sorts of specifications.

Consumer review by: Gerald B. Smith (



A good little tuner, I purchased it direct from Sharp in thier sale and paid 149.99. I note that there are several versions of this, all using the same casing, branded Hitachi, Goodmans etc.

So far, none, after a month's use.
