    Do I need a PVR or can a TV do it all?

    We have a SKY subscription so that we can continue to use the SKY box as a PVR. We have a satellite dish, decent broadband but no terrestrial aerial. Not against getting an aerial but I'd prefer not to. We have subscriptions to Prime, Netlix, Now, Disney+ and probably some other stuff and we...

    Which 43" TV?

    I currently have an older Vestel made Toshiba TV. It's a 32" HD. It's adequate enough, blacks aren't great at all, but when you watch TV, you don't have another TV to compare to! The key problems with it are: It doesn't play nicely with our Humax HDR 1800T - if you turn the TV and then the...

    Is there a good USB PVR recorder

    I'm looking for a new PVR recorder that won't break the bank or draw too much power - so looking for something that uses USB storage rather than built-in HDD. I'm not happy with what I've seen thus far, which is very basic brandless boxes. Is there anything good that's preferably Android...

    No PVR on budget models!

    I recently bought a replacement (an AU8000) for my 2016 Samsung TV and was surprised to find that Samsung only offers the common "USB Recording" feature on their more expensive TVs since 2019 and it's now called Extended PVR. My 2016 TV cost slightly less than the model I bought this year so it...

    PVR basic functionality

    Back in the day I had one of the early freeview Humax recorders, and one of the many features I loved was that I could easily look at the list of recorded programmes while watching live TV (or another recorded programme), and I could check the live TV schedules while watching a recording (or a...
