The Topfield TF5800PVR (or "Toppy" as it is affectionately known) is a uniquely specified Freeview PVR. The Toppy's devastating flexibility enables you to watch and record a combination of up to FOUR channels at once, to output two different programmes (including recordings and live transmissions) simultaneously via its RF outputs and scart socket, to record/pause/rewind/fast-forward live television and to edit recordings on the hard disk for later playback or output to your PC.

Further, the TF5800 allows user-developed application programmes - or "TAPs" - to be added via USB2, increasing features and functionality beyond the already impressive array on offer, enabling limitless software control possibilities. Yet, with all that functionality, it is a sprightly performer - channels change in under a second, bringing an end to frustratingly slow Freeview surfing.
