Hi I'm a newbie here but have faffed about with digital video for years. I've got a Panasonic telly that records freeview & freesat to a usb disk, but only one at a time and it locks the tuner. Then if I want to copy off a program to watch on the train, I can't, the USB disk is encrypted and it even disables the analog video during playback. I'm not complaining about the telly, the recordings are good, and I use a virgin TIVO most of the time, but I'm going to get rid of the cable TV so I thought I'd buy a proper PVR instead, rather that go media centre or mythbuntu. Is there a PVR that will just let me copy the recordings off it, so I can reencode to play on whatever device I happen to be carrying? or do they all assume I'm pirating content? Is there one for freeview and freesat combined? Is there one that'll record to my readyNAS (virgin disable this in their tivo). I don't mind tinkering or configuring or cabling or converting, in fact it's kind of my thing. I've never bought a PVR box so I'd appreciate your comments, save me from buying some buttoned-down locked-in idiot-proof thing that I'll regret. Ta.
