As a happy 5800 user for UK Freeview, I'm now looking for advice on a satellite receiver PVR to watch and record FTA German TV in the UK. HD not an issue at present.

Will any of the Topfield sat receivers do what I want? Are there any that I should avoid?

Any advice welcome.

Thanks in advance.

Perhaps the German Forum is a good place to ask too.

The TF7710HDPVR is truly awful.

Awful UI, unresponsive to remote control, slow, obvious missing features.

We have a 5800 and a 4000 sat receiver.

They use the same remote control frequency!!!!!!

EDIT: any satellite receiver will pick up German FTA if you point the dish at the Astra 19.2 or Eutelsat satellites

Agree with Jumbo about trying the German forum. I think a TF5500PVR would work for you if you can find one, so long as your dish is aligned to the right satellite.
