Question about Sagem PVR 6280 Freeview DTV Receiver / 40-Hours Video Recorder

5 Answers

Sagem PVR 62160T UK

On Monday 14th July, after turning my Sagem on, there was an on screen message advising of a download available to improve DTV. It said press OK to download or exit and that downloading would only take a few minutes. I pressed OK and two zeros and two flashing dashes appeared on the Sagem and it started making a 'whirring' noise. It has been like that ever since, even after unplugging from the mains - it still comes back with the same display. There is no response to the remote control

I left it plugged in while watching a DVD for about 90 min (as Sagem and DVD are all connected up with the TV). Afterwards I noticed the Sagem was now displaying Er09. I tried pressing the green button on remote control to activate the Sagem and hey presto everything came back on (with a message saying that the download was now complete). All back to normal now. I think the 00 and flashing dashes just meant that the Sagem was downloading and that this took longer than the specified ' few minutes'. Not sure what the 'improved DTV' was though - I can't see the difference!

The biggest problem is not to be able to record a channel. what i find is after about a week if i try to record live or timed recording it does not work. but if i pull the plug and let it start up, no joy. instead i need to reset to factory settings. this is fine, but then you got to rescan the channels and start all over again.
as far as i an concerned, this is the biggest piece of poo i have ever bought and since trying to get on the site is like sqeezing blood from a stone, then all i will do is buy another and when that is set up, i will just smash the damn thing and never buy another sagem item.
this is not the only thing that sagem has had the audacity to throw out at people. i had a broadban modem. i had a good time putting the hammer into that and as far as i am concerned, Sagem is not worth buying.
a fault with 2 items means dont bother. find another named item. this item works, but i would not depend my life on it at all.

    dont bother. if it comes up, why fix something that works. if you have problems, throw the thing away. the last update froze half the buttons and killed my recording. and i mean killed.
    but the update took an hour, an hour, how slow is that, a windows download is slow, this is like waiting for paint to dry, actually i got paint that does dries quicker.
    This model does take an hour to set up. but be warned. this is an item i would never buy again and would advise anyone to go buy another make, that is until they respond with some kind of answer to this problem. It was a thrown together piece of poo.

    Now i will buy something else and be warned, this is rubbish to say the least, and then give no back up if problems do come to light.
    If all the companies read these reports, perhap they would make something that could work for a few years, and i mean that.
    i have had various freeview units. i waited till i could get one for £20 before going for a dear one.
    imagine paying £150 which they were to find that all this comes up and rears its ugly head.

DVR6280GL-UK. Flashes er07 and er09 after attempt to reset. What do I do to fix it?


The Sagem PVR 6280 is specifically listed as a model which will have problems with the retune.

See the address below for a chart of affected models, but the official advice is that you must contact Sagem directly on 0845 0900 316 for either an over the air update or an update DVD depending upon the manufacturer.

I have retuned my PVR 6200t recorder and have lost ITV and Channel 5 and several other channels. Any advice?


The Sagem PVR 6280 is specifically listed as a model which will have problems with the retune. Although the Sagem PVR 6200 and 6200t are not specifically listed as problem models they are very closely related to the 6280/6240 models and share most of the same firmware and software.

See the address below for a chart of affected models, you'll need to contact Sagem directly on 0845 0900 316 for either an over the air update or an update DVD depending upon the manufacturer.

I would like a Sagem DTR 6400T/6700T software upgrade


Pop open remote case you will need knife or thin steel ruler to do this.
Clean the board contacts and the conductive pads with switch cleaner or isopropyl alcolhol cleaner and you will find it will work fine.
