    Hi - this may have been asked and answered but.....
    I have 2 DVD recorders and 2 TV's. I want to be able to watch TV and record another programme at the same time - do I need 4 Freeview boxes? ie One for each DVD and one for each TV? Or can I use just one box to feed both TV and DVD (on different channels)

    The 2 DVD recorders are fairly new so I don't want to junk them

    Any advice on the best way to go digital would be appreciated

    Thanks

    Pete

    You'd need 4, or 2 with twin tuners and 2 outputs (don't know if these exist yet).

    Another problem you may encounter is the remote for one changing the channel on both boxes in the room, so you may have to get different brands.

    I would sell the nearly new DVD recorders and buy one or more Freeview receivers with built-in Hard drives (and DVD recording if required). Much simpler solution if you can afford it.
