Hi, I have a Technika 23-231BR and I have always had poor reception. It appears that this is the TV tuner's fault, as when I plug in a Philips top box, I get perfect reception. Anyway, I am therefore looking for either a new TV or a PVR, but I am leaning towards a PVR. The USB record function is extremely useful, however, I could record to a HDD, as long as there was the option of transferring them to my PC via USB or some other method. On the same topic, I wouldn't mind being able to record freeview HD, but I understand that there is difficulty transferring these recordings due to encryption. The ability to move these recordings and keep them elsewhere (and watch them on other devices) isn't a neccessity, however, it would be useful if I wanted to save something. I would like to be able to move the SD recordings and watch them on other devices though. I have already looked at the Humax HDR FOX-T2 and quite like it, however, unless I have misunderstood the information in Black Hole's sig, it looks like there may be encryption issues with the HD recordings on the standard firmware. The TV portal looks good to me, but again, this is not something I require. I was just wondering if anyone has any advice about this.
