Topfield's TRF-2460 Masterpiece HD Plus is a superb PVR for any TV junkie and we recommend it. Its twin HD tuners provide excellent reception and give you the ability to record up to four shows at once onto its roomy 1TB drive. We like the Web features of the unit and the ability to transfer shows to a PC, but the PVR's interface for playing MP3s and DivX files could be improved. We also hope that YouTube videos will work on the PVR again in the near future.
