    This is probably a really stupid question but ... do LCD televisions have twin tuners and if not, does it matter. Reason for question, just ordered a Samsung LE26R41B after much research and my Dad asks me about twin tuners and being able to record and watch different channels Help :lease:

    If he wants to record an analogue tv then it is not a problem, because the TV has one tuner and then the video records / dvd recorder has one tuner...thus making two!

    Most TV do not have two analogue tuners for instances.

    If a TV offers PIP, it will often have a second tuner. For digital, it is a little more complicated. A second tuner may also need to be acompanied by a second decoder and CAM - for say TUTV. But it only becomes a real problem when recording direct from the TV. To be honest, even if a TV has integrated Freeview, it will still be likely that an external freeview tuner would still be required to record a channel different to that being watched.

    For best results you would want to record digital TV directly on a digital medium.
    I use an external receiver with builtin harddisk recorder so recordings have the same quality as the original broadcast.
