In my view, the ideal PVR would have the following attributes:- 1. HDD of reasonable capacity. 2. DVD recording capability ie + R/RW or -R/RW or both. 3. At least one onboard Freeview tuner. 4. A 7 day EPG. I believe that the new Sony machines would meet this specification but I understand that they will not be available until September 2005. Does anyone know of anything with the above specification which will be released earlier than September, please?
