But, if you sift out all the good bits that are on when you’re not around to watch them, you can stock up on some great TV for the times you are. And all subscription free, of course. The TVonics DTR-HD500 will do that job for you, without the hassle of a visit from a man with a ladder and a drill.</p> <fieldset class="fieldgroup group-pricing"><legend>Pricing</legend><div class="field field-type-number-float field-field-test-price"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> £235.00 </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="fieldgroup group-ratings"><legend>Ratings</legend><div class="field field-type-hcmreviewrating-rating field-field-overall-rating"> <div class="field-label">Overall rating:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="hcmrating-default">8 stars</div> </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-group-sections"><legend>Review Section</legend><fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-0"><div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="messages warning">This video is not currently supported.</div> </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> </fieldset> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-verdict"> <div class="field-label">Verdict:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>A simple, no-nonsense way to hoover up all the best free hi-def content the UK has to offer</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-legacy-url"> <div class="field-label">Legacy URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> /review/tvonics-dtr-hd500 </div> </div> </div> <p><a href="http://www.stuff.tv/tvonics-dtr-hd500/review" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://www.stuff.tv/tvonics-dtr-hd500/review#comments DTR-HD500 PVRs and Set-top Boxes TVonics Wed, 02 Mar 2011 11:04:42 +0000 Tony Horgan 415791 at http://www.stuff.tv TVonics DTR-Z250 http://www.stuff.tv/tvonics/tvonics-dtr-z250/review <div class="field field-type-text field-field-standfirst"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Twin digital tuners and a 250GB hard drive, and all for under £180.
