In my view, anyone who buys any of the current range of analogue equipment, be it VCRs, HD recorders or DVD recorders is wasting their money. Manufacturers are still continuing to churn out new models fitted with analogue tuners in the full knowledge that the death of the analogue signal is a reality in the not too distant future. Why? The only way to change this is for everyone to stop buying it. Then perhaps we might see some gear with digital tiners. Some hope!
