    What is the cheapest way of achieving the ability to record FV to HD (10hrs is fine) whilst watching a different FV channel, and then occasionally back up to DVD from the HD in a format that is playable by consumer dvd players.

    No of boxes doesn't matter. There is a PC with DVDRW on the other side of the wall reachable by LAN or any type of cable, it has no video capture or tuner cards and I have no interest in watching TV on the PC or using it as the FV source for my lounge Plasma.

    I would like best picture possible so YUV out for my screen.

    Do I really just want 2 FV boxes and a DVD recorder with a small HD ?

    Ta, jim

    Hi Jim!

    A solution to your problem would be to buy a FV/HD combi such as the Pace Twin and a DVD recorder. Most FV/HD recorders have the ability to archive the contents of their HD.
    Alternatively you can upgrade the size of the internal HD massively making the need to backup onto DVD redundant.
    Hope this helps.

    PS make sure you buy a FV box with twin tuners this allows you to watch and record 2 different channels simultaneously.
