I have 2 main objectives from a digital video system: 1) To digitally record TV programmes from Freeview, initially onto hard disk and maybe later onto a DVD, with the ease and useful functions that a SKY+ type system gives. 2) To be able to convert existing VHS (homemade) vids onto DVD, editing them as I go (so need to use hard disk for that). As there doesn't seem to be one box that has Freeview + Disk + DVD recorder, it seems like my best bet is to have a Freeview PVR, together with either a combined VHS/DVD recorder (less clutter and inputs/outputs), or a separate VHS and DVD recorder. Does this sound like a feasible configuration? Do PVRs normally output ok to other recording devices and accept input from something like a VHS? Or is this a case of "fine in theory"? Any advice gratefully received.
