Question about Daewoo Televison & Video

1 Answer

I have a Daewoo Twin Tuner hard disc PVR with a firmware

The machine ( a hard drive PVR) seems to have a common firmware fault (it keeps crashing and re-initialising the hard drive).
Re-booting or formatting makes no difference.
It gets worse if I try to record anything.
Internet forums are full of such faults.
But for the first 8 months it was briliant- this makes replacing it quite hard as other machines are not as easy to use.

I had one with the same firmware faults - in the end I had to return it as Daewoo had no plans to update the firmware. When I returned it it joined a huge pile of them in Currys.

Why does my pvr keep freezing


Sorry can't help on this. Presumably you've switched off/on at mains and checked all connections secure. Would a factory reset help, see tips how to do on fixya, although not sure if you would lose library data.

I have a DT16300-16. I dont use it for Top-up TV but the last few weeks it keeps recording programs from the Lottery Extra channel. I also keep receiving 3-4 minute recordings about top-up. I have had this...


The PVR you have has preset Top-up TV channels it will download from as a preset. You need to go into the main menu and turn off the auto update function of the machine. Then in your "TV Guide" menu find the particular channel and deselect it for download or recording. 

The 3-4 minute recordings are commercials for their products and came with the last few auto updates, they're trying to sell their product. 

A crash could be a sign of stress on the hard drive, most of these machines have craptastic hard drives that if even rattled or slightly moved while being recorded upon they die. If you're recording and deleting at the same time (with the age of the machine) I would not be surprised if it continued to happen. If it crashes when you do these things individually it is probably the same problem, or the firmware of the machine is corrupt.

My Daewoo sv900 is scanning but not finding any channels


I owned a Daewoo VCR/Digital Receiver SV900 which was wiped out by the last change.
I started complaining to Daewoo who at first were not keen to get involved - I kept on at them and I negotiated with Daewoo for a replacement -

I ended up with a DSD9503TFB which is a twin Freeview tuner with PIP and a 160 GB Hard disk - I paid a cash balance of £ 15 as at first they wanted to give me a cheaper unit.

So it shows that if you complain loud enough ‘you do get results’

The DSD9503TFB arrived the other day and they picked up the SV900.

The picture quality is more Colourful than my other units so I had to tone it down a bit. { I can view seven other Freeview unit so its easy to do a comparison }

So far the Hard disk is silent and the Recording quality is excellent.

It was such good PVR I bought another one which will arrive on Monday.

All in all a ‘ Good result ‘ and ' I am not the only one '

So if you have a genuine Claim against Daewoo I would advise that you keep at them - they take ages to reply to e-mails but stick with it.

contact colin.millard@desuk.co.uk and quote ' Split NIT '

I have listed the Pro's and Con's of the DSD9503TFB at
