    Just been looking around for a new dvd recorder. Thought I would get one with freeview, hdd and hdmi output. I was really suprised to find that you cannot get one with all these features!!!! Even more suprised that manufacturers are still putting in analogue tuners:(

    That is what kind of specs costs at the moment. Panasonic will bring out a new model with that criteria as well. No-one knows when that will be though.

    Hi

    Also new Pioneers are due out soon with Freeview tuners but not sure if the UK models will HDMI. Note that HDMI is for high definition and does nothing for SD material except line the pockets of the manfacturers.

    Regards

    Phil
