    I've just ordered the BDX version of this from ED having got them to (almost) pricematch HomecinemaTV, however having second thoughts about whether the Freeview part is of any value to me. I think I originally assumed that I could extrac the Freeview signal out to a recorder (I happen to use Tivo) however am I right in thinking that that is not possible. In which case I will buy a standalone Freeview box and it seems to me that the Freeview part of the Samsung would be totally redundant.

    Hi Tony
    Yes you can record the freeview signal from the BDX, however the TV needs to be on and you can, obviously, only record what is on the screen, so it is restricted - however I would still get the BDX and another freeview box then you can record and watch another channel on freeview rather than record and only watch channels 1-5 - just my take on it.

    Sure; it has to be a "plus" that you could watch one (extra, freeview, or regular) channel whilst recording any other channel both in their full, widescreen, digital form.

    You could also save the extra for the "freeview model" and buy a twin tuner DVR./PVR. I'm thinking about going down that route.

    Exactly my thinking - lusting after the "Toppy" at the moment :)
    Would there be better picture quality using the inbuilt Freeview given that the connections are internal, or is it really down to the UHF source ?

    By the way I mistakenly said I was buying the LE26, I meant the LE32.
