Does anyone know of any dvd/hdd recorders out there with a twin freeview tuner intergrated ???

ive seen plenty with single tuner ie. the samsung sh853m.

any comments will be greatly appreciated .. :thumbsup:

Such machines do not exist... because being a DVD recorder it would mean also having to have another encoder and complex switching.... and would be considerably more expensive. That does not apply to PVR's

Usually the best combination is a twin tuner PVR AND a DVD recorder for the best of all worlds and great flexibility.

Regarding a Hard Disk/DVD Recorder, when a manufacturer says Twin Tuner they mean One Analogue and One Digital Tuner.

It's a pity they've not tried it though :(. I'm sure many would pay a premium price point for one.

I appreciate the current Recorders with Analogue and Digital Tuners are supposed to be used one or the other not together, i.e - You cannot watch the analogue tuner when recording from Digital and visa versa. They could give it two Digital Tuners but make one act like a PVR and be for Viewing only.

Dual tuner is one or the other: analogue OR digital, just like switching inputs on a tv (av1, av2, analgue, digital etc.)

Twin is when each one is independent.

Twin and even quad tuners do exist in Japan, just not in the UK. However the Japanese market is totally different to the UK and they are much more willing to pay the high prices.
