The Topfield 7100HD Plus (aka: TF 7100 HD PVRt Plus) is a good quality PVR with the ability to record from 4 different channels at the same time.
This model is advertised with a 500 GB Hard Drive, although some models have a smaller internal drive of only 320 GB’s.
It will support a 1TB (1,000 GB) external Hard Disk Drive via USB socket or eSata.
Other features of this model include:
- Fast-forward and Rewind Speeds of up to 128x
- Pause Live TV (Time Shift) user selectable up to 5 Hours
- PhotoViewer with SlideShow
- Media Player- Divx HD Certified
The ability to record 4 programs at the same time is limited to these 4 programs being on just two channel groups.
Channel Seven group comprises: 7, 71, 72 and 73 Mate
Channel Nine group comprises: 9, 99 Go and 90 Gem
Channel Ten group comprises, 10, One, Eleven and Twelve
As an example, you could record 7, 73, 99 and 90, being 4 programs from 2 groups.
You could NOT record 7, 73, 99 and 10, as that is now spread over 3 channel groups.
