    Hi, i've got an integrated digital tv but it's a pain having to leave it switched on the channel i'm recording sa it defeats the purpose of what i'm doing. Are there any hard disk dvd or just dvd recorders that have a built in digital tuner that would let me use the tv freely whilst recording?

    The Sony GXD500 has just had a review in Home Cinema Choice (January 2005). Rated 4/5 over with the 'highs' being a Freeview Tuner, Connectivity and Dual Format Recording. 'Lows' were Boring Disk menus, lack of DV input.

    There are no DVB equipped HDD/DVDRs yet - the first is likely to be the Toshiba RDXS34 due next year.

    And though it may be low quality,it has no analogue tuner at all,so ensure your DTT reception is robust
