Beyonwiz DP P2B 2TB $499.99 +Shipping at JungleJumble.com.au

Cheapest I could find on the net. Didn't bother price matching with JB Hifi or any other B+M stores. Good price for PVR, Topfield 7170 about $50 more on other sites.

EDIT: Cheaper at IceTV

    Can anyone comment on this? Looking for a pvr for the olds.

    •  

      I work in the AV industry and I've had 2 dead units within 1 year of installation. Box would either freeze and die or will show signs that it will fail eventually. So no, I would not recommend this STB.

      •  

        this isn't a stb… and were those new or refurbished units? not having a go at you btw.

        funnily enough i bought this over the topfield 7170 because of reports like yours about pvrs like the toppy dying. i guess it could be true that some electronics are manufactured to fail these days.

        •  

          Sorry my mistake. PVR. And they were all new units. Maybe it was just pure bad luck that we had 2 brand new units die on us?

        •  

          lol i don't know. just hope it doesn't happen to mine.

  •  

    I have had a DP-P1 for years and it's been the best thing ever.
    Recording is a breeze, rewind, etc… everything works. I hooked it into my network and it plays a lot of files.

      This - ICE TV deal better, $17 shipping + $49 for 12 month ICE TV subscription is a great deal.

      I have had a DP-P1 for years, sure like anything it has some issues, but great PVR and decent Media Player.

        thanks for the detailed review.

        i called jungle jumble today to see why my item still not shipped and guy gives me attitude and claims to have sent the product even though website still says processing.

        when i ask for a price match rude guy says it's my fault for not checking price online then i tell him i bought friday and icetv price changed on saturday (junglejumble closes on weekend), then i let him know he's being rude, then he changed his attitude. still pissed me off though, don't think i'll buy for them again.

    I'm afraid I wouldn't recommend these Beyonwiz at any price. I've got two (a DP-P1 and a DP-P2) and unfortunately found that they network together very badly - can't move files from one to the other, can't delete files on one from the other, files display differently depending on whether you are viewing on local machine or remote machine. Plus the real kicker - the network port is artificially limited to prevent the main processor being overloaded. So you can just stream a HD movie provided that nothing else is happening (like recording or even viewing another show, in fact recommendation is to have it on a system screen so as little as possible is actually happening) but if you try and move a HD movie from the unit to a NAS or network PC or similar it takes nearly as long as actually viewing it. Also very finicky to get working on a wireless network - if you can get it to work at all.

    Also firmware support was very good in the early stages but has halted entirely for nearly two years now. I wonder how much longer they will even be going for.

    Definately do your research before purchasing these.

      i have a couple of BW units, and find them very useful. We can record on one unit, and the other unit can find the first unit on the network and play the files.

      they wont do all that a htpc does, but then they are a lot easier to run and setup

      I have one friend wanting to buy one on special in perth

      for the price and ease of use, they are the best value device i can find

  •  

    hmm i primarily got this over the topfield 7170 for ease of use. good for parents and other non-tech savvy users, i thought. pity about the firmware…

    •  

      What's the pity and what version are you running?
      Mine's more stable that a Tom Cruise marriage.

      •  

        haven't got it delivered yet. what i mean is that the firmware hasn't been updated since 2010. kinda slack, since there haven't been any newer models released.

        •  

          I can't complain about that. It works, it plays a LOT (not everything).
          I don't think there's more to update…

  •  

    Does it have a free epg or is the paid ice tv the only way to set timer recordings?

      they have an epg, like all pvrs, but icetv is automatically updated a lot better than the normal epg

      i have found icetv great value, can select all the series my wife wants, and it just automatically finds and records, even when the schedule changes

      7 day EPG already built in.

    These units are great. We've had a DP-P1 for over 4 years now and lite-I for over 1 year. There was regular updates until 2010 and the way I see it, machines don't really need anything else as have been updated to death already!
    Wireless is easy… Get an ASUS WL330-GE or the newer wireless n equivalent for about $65.
    You want ability to shift files between different pvr's etc then get yourselves a couple of htpc's and get over it :)
