    I've currently got an old CRT TV on Virginmedia with Tivo recorder. I'd like to cancel & go to freeview but would like to still get iplayer & youtube plus all the functions that the PVR brings. However, there seems to be a bewildering array of devices & different combinations. What's my best option, i.e. minimum number of separate boxes for a reasonable price?

    Unless there's a Blu ray/PVR/Smart TV device that'll work with my old CRT, I'm thinking Smart TV plus blue ray/PVR box perhaps??

    Hmmm..

    You will have a problem trying to connect many blu-ray players to a CRT. They generally don't have scart sockets only hdmi and component video outputs. A few might have composite outputs, a terrible waste of blu-ray picture quality.
