I was contacted by the guys at DTVS and we have an offer for 50% discount on their HD6000T/NZ PVR (valid until 31st March 2009).



What you need to do:

1. Place your order via this link.
2. Once the order is placed, contact DTVS via PM here on Geekzone so they can confirm you are a Geekzone user. Make sure to provide them with information such as name, order number, etc.

Once the PM is received and DTVS confirms you are a Geekzone member they will release the order. The price does not include freight.

Visit the HD6000T/NZ PVR 50% discount page for more information on this product.

Thanks DTVS.

As discussion hasn't broken out here on the unit, an extensive thread is here. It would be good to see a similar thread appear here on GZ once a few users take up the special offer.

Before someone else points it out in a not so polite fashion, anyone can currently buy it for $299, the 50% discount is off the "normal price" where Joe public only get 40%.

I think the DTVS geekzone's PM link is incorrect.

I was about to say... it's been on $300 for a long time.
In fact, I was expecting a price drop.
Still waiting for a unit with a usable ethernet port

Of course it does, new models keep appearing.
The dollar has been weak for a while now and big TV prices keep dropping.
Obsolecence rules in consumer electronics. Hardware-wise this product is very similar, or inferior, to the non-PVR Zinwell that is now selling for the same money as the Vantage.

At the moment, prices are increasing. Probably not visible to you as they don't filter through the system as quickly due to contractual arrangements. Sometimes they do not show as price increases as they are offset against margins. This special for Geezone is a good one, enjoy it. Thanks to those who have taken up so far.

On hardware, it is unfair to make a derogatory comment on a product without seein it. I will leave it to that.

AH

Hi,

don't get me wrong, it's great having $50 off, I won't complain about that.
I would buy this product if it had an ethernet port, that's what I meant when I compared it with the Zinwell.

All good, but if you read the manual, it's OS only supports FAT32 file format. Thats 4GB max file size, and I think 32GB disk size

The HD6000T/NZ does only support FAT32 at this stage. However you are not restricted to 32gb this is a XP and above restriction there are numerous third party applications that let you format drives over 32gb to FAT32.

For recordings over 4gb in size are split and synced accordingly on playback, but this is done flawlessly and is not noticed by the end user.

Here is a link for a utility.

I can assure you, 4GB file size gets damn confusing when you're PVRing a number of shows over the period of a week. I use an Avermedia TV tuner card, which also limits file size to 4GB and it appends sequence numbers to the original title, all in the same capture directory. I've noticed this with a lot of Korean stuff now - lots of promise, but lacking in 'current' file technology, if you can describe NTFS for instance as current. Files can get huge (>12GB) when recording 1080i TV3 programs, even with MP4. The product also appears to have only one tuner (please correct me if I'm wrong here). I believe two tuners are an absolute minimum.

Does this tuner support MHEG-5 and will it have an 8 day EPG over the DVB-T signal?
