A7070 can record TV

★★★★ 4.0
The Freeview app on the box prevents RECORDING. You can get around this by looking inside the system apps for one called HDTV app which accesses the tuner differently. Insert a removable USB storage stick. Then you need a Bluetooth remote (phone app) that has media buttons to stop recording. Red Blue Yellow Green ones also. You can then schedule recordings. The HDTV app allows channels to be customised, skip, rename and also search satellites. Play recordings back with VLC app is easiest.

You see the red record button on remote? Well this box cannot record or pause TV... "The A7070 cannot record or pause Live TV at the moment. The USB ports are for playing back media from external storage devices, through suitable apps or performing USB software updates etc... " Feel abit deceived by DishTV - the quick start guide hides this and no full online manual for box. I have some of their older STB and recording SAT broadcasts no problem. People after a chromecast streamer should be happy and bonus is DVBs/DVBt connectivity. The box is only a bit larger than a cell phone, so for travelling, caravan, boat etc its probably idea...view more

I brought this for my boat as UHF coverage is not great in a lot of bays where we moor at night, didn't have high hopes, but was pleasantly surprised! In 3G coverage areas Freeview buffers but Netflix works a treat!! In 4G coverage areas everything is spot on!!

Does what I thought it would do

HI I brought this almost a month ago as a up grade to Chromecast. It works fine but no manual even an on line one would have been useful I'm not very technical so trial and error took me longer than it should have. Now it seems to work fine except some times it minimizes if you pause and you have to go out and restart so may be I dont have the install quite right

Okay price, below average features.

Have been using this for a few months now, may just be my unit but it randomly closes apps and live TV when you're using them. Also randomly pauses videos while watching them. Has a record butting but would have been nice if the locked out recording function was made clear, expensive unit for something that doesn't record. The only good thing is its high resolution, ethernet connectivity and the fact I can play files directly from my NAS.
