Poor customer support
I'm afraid that I couldn't recommend a Sagem set top box to anyone because of their atrocious customer support.
My PVR bricked yesterday (not entirely unexpected) because of shoddy firmware. But this problem has been known about for two years or so and, calls to customer support during that time have received blatant lies about an imminent fix.
My advice, don't buy Sagem. (and I think you'll find plenty of other users of the same PVRs feel the same way)
