Menu system is simple and sleek
Browsing recorded shows
Unless you are in HK, you have to use timer programming, which imho is very easy and intuitive
There are several recording quality modes. For 1080i best is HG mode which ensures no quality loss
1TB HDD is great. MINI accepts external USB drives up to 2TB capacity
MINI is true multisystem device. You can select 50 and 60Hz HD output formats. The unit will convert any source video format to selected output format "on fly"
One of setup diagnostic features is test screen which ensures your TV aspect ratio is set properly
MINI offers lots of "gadgets" like news, weather. To stay on top what is happening in HK...
Among other useful info MINI displays even the type of video format compression used while recording.
Remote looks and feels great and it can control most of popular TV sets
The box is huge because it contains thick printed manual and bunch of cables.Edited by esdwa - 11/18/12 at 6:22am
