at the same time???
There are a few; the Thomson DHD4000 and the Fusion FVRT100 and FVRT150.
There are also some due for launch in the near future, including the Panasonic TUCTH100, the Fusion FVRT200 and a Humax model.
I went to panasonic website... and its doesnt say anything about recording two different channels at the same time...
Digital Converter Box
A Panasonic Digital Converter Box enables easy reception of Freeview digital terrestrial channels on an analogue television with a suitable rooftop aerial. The TUCTH100 has fully automatic set-up and widescreen switching and connections include twin SCARTS (one lead supplied) for high quality RGB pictures and stereo sound, RCA output and SPDIF (digital optical out). The TUCTH100 is an excellent piece of equipment that every home should have.
The TUCTH100 also comes with an onboard 80Gb Hard Disk Drive that allows the user to record their favourite programmes in Digital clarity with the touch of a button. The number of functions that can be achieved thanks to the addition of the Hard Disk Drive are numerous:
View Live TV service while recording same service
View Live TV service while recording alternative service
Live TV pause/resume/search at various speeds
View Recorded Service
View Recorded Service while recording live service
Playback of recorded service at +/- x1, x3, x12, x24, and x300 speed
Ability to swap between playback and live service without stopping playback
Archive HDD content and view live service
Navigation has been made as simple as possible through the addition of Navigators. These are as follows:
TV Guide - Shows currently available terrestrial services. Categorisation for Genre/User Profiles and 24hr/7 day event list as in iDTV
Disc Navigator - Lists content of HDD by programme name, indicating un-watched and currently recording content. Also gives the user archiving feature and lock for precious recordings.
Banner Navigation - Program information banner (Now and Next only)
Panasonic's website is dreadful - don't believe a word of it. I'm waiting for the Panasonic because it sounds promising. However, I won't be buying one until someone has confirmed its capabilities in real life.
If you have the time, you could try trawling through the TUCTH100 thread over at the Digital Spy forums. Check out post 912 on page 37 re. simultaneous recording of two channels.
Thanks for that!
