My Toppy arrived today.
It’s difficult to find words to describe the power of this little box of tricks. I can pause live TV. I can record TV. I can record two TV shows at once. I can record two TV shows at once while watching a previously recorded TV show – and all in razor-sharp widescreen (and it’s not even technically high-definition).
And the best bit? When I’m watching previously recorded TV shows, I can whack a button to skip forward thirty seconds – coincidentally, this is the length of most ads.
I’ll post a full review soon. The short review, however, is that hard-disk recorders in general – and the Toppy in particular – are the best things to happen to TV since colour.
