If it's a straight Freeview box (i.e. not PVR) you're after, then I think it's hard to beat the Sony VTX-D800U.

If however, you are thinking of a PVR then I have no real experience and will leave it for someone better qualified to make that recommendation.

Best of luck with your ultimate choice.

Cheers,

Martin.

As a matter of interest, why this one? What's so good about it? I'm after one as well hence my questions.

Only that, from what I read, of the current crop it appears to be the most reliable twin tuner job - least likely to not record, or bu&&er up when it does etc etc.....

The other promising candidates - Humax 9200, Topfield - seem to have recurrent glitches, and the Pace (twin - obsolete) and Panachronic offerings are both junk. Goodmans, Sagem are also to be avoided.

For ultimate reliability, the Humax 8000 can't be beaten; but it has a VERY basic feature spec, and only has one tuner (can only do one thing at oce, rather like a VCR).
