        Stunning 1080p HD TV via HDMI

        You'll have the best viewing experience as you take in high-definition content at resolution some five times that of a standard definition broadcast. The crisper, sharper pictures, vibrant colours and excellent contrast really bring the finer details in your favourite shows to life.

        All you need is a compatible HD TV and an HDMI cable.

        Feast your eyes on great TV

        Watch fantastic TV including the most popular HD channels, navigating with ease through clear, simple menus and enjoying your TV a whole lot more. With the ability to pause and rewind live TV you're in control, and you can record up to 500 hours of programmes.

        The inclusion of a Freeview+ HD tuner gives you incredible choice in a TV service that's subscription-free – take your pick from over 50 channels, including four top HD channels.

        Whether it's sport, movies or nature programmes, the receiver delivers picture quality that will enhance your enjoyment. There's always something to watch, and it's so easy to set up and start enjoying.

        Catch up, on-demand TV and multimedia

        As well as great programming, the Philips HDTP8540 Freeview+ HD Recorder also offers TV on Demand and Catch-Up TV services from BBC iPlayer, so there's even more content to keep you happy.

        This state-of-the-art recorder also lets you record your favourite media content, its integrated media player enabling you to enjoy your photos, videos and music through your TV.

        It's DLNA compatible for great home networking. Upload or choose files via the USB port, or set up a local network with other DLNA compatible devices so you can open media files from a PC or Media Server in your home.

        Recording couldn't be simpler

        The HDTP 8540 Digital Set Top Box lets you record one-off items or an entire TV series at the touch of a button. Choose your desired programme from the guide and let one-touch recording take over, with the brilliant Series Link functionality keeping your favourites perfectly organised and updated.

        Create your own personalised recording library, storing recorded programmes in personalised folders that allow each member of your family to have their own space. This makes it quick to find, and nothing will be deleted by mistake.

        Since the box has a twin tuner, you can record two channels whilst viewing recorded content, or take in live programmes whilst recording favourite shows.

        Offering top-quality picture, instinctive functionality, premium entertainment and more, the Philips HDTP8540 Freeview+ HD Recorder is the ideal way to ramp up your home entertainment setup.

        Absolutely useless. Does not work with WIFI. I can't use an Ethernet lead as it is not 10 ft long! There was nothing on the box to say that it is incompatible with WI- FI

        Not as good or easy to use as previous model. It also feels very flimsy in comparison.
