Digital Terrestrial Recorders manufactured by Vestel
Freeview+ This site is dedicated to various models and configurations of Freeview Recorders made by a Turkish company called Vestel and sold under 20 or so different brand names in the UK including familiar names Alba, Bush, Goodmans, Ferguson, Hitachi, Sharp, Technika and Wharfedale. Lesser known names that you might not recognise such as Finlux and Luxor are Vestel's own brand names, whereas Digihome and Agora are names owned by Vestel UK. Twelve hardware models are known about, and you can find out which yours is by the sticker on the underside of the unit (or maybe on the packaging) which will usually contain either T810, T816, T825, T835, T836, T845, T845R, T7300, T7650, T7655, T7660 or T7675.
