I am about te replace an aging PVR (Digifusion 200) that is packing up and wanted to go for a good product something like the Panasonic DMREX77.

Having looked around it seems that all the Panasonic (and Sony products) only have 1 x digital tuner, is that right?

Is there a good product that will give me the ability to record 2 digital stations at the same time and also back up to dvd ? Even my old Digifusion has 2 digital tuners....

Many Thanks


This has recently been covered in This Thread. But the simple answer is single Freeview tuner and DVD recorder or 2 Freeview tuners and no DVD.

Ok, so that seems to have put that to bed, I guess the next question is, what PVR should I be going for ? must have the twin digital tuners...

Top two recommends on this site are Humax and Topfield.

I am very happy with my Topfield TF5800 and they have updated the model with HDMI and a big harddrive so you can pick up the 5800 cheap or splash out on the new 5810.
