    Now that I'm going to lose my free viewing of C4, C5, ITV etc via my Sony Sky Digital box, I'm toying with the idea of junking it and and my TIVO and going for a combined Freeview and PVR - IF such a beast exists.
    I think I've seen something like it on these pages but can't remember where....
    Now I know I'm a complete sado, but one of the requirements I have is that it looks "nice" is the "standard" hifi width of 430mm and preferably silver.

    Anyone know of anything?

    Thanks,

    Simon

    There's only the pace twin at the moment but it's a bit crap - EPG is slow and incomplete, and it's buggy in general.

    You'r just going to have to wait... there will be plenty to choose from in the near future i'm sure.

    Pace Twin just needs another update - it is an excellent piece of kit and I couldn't do without it

    Keep an eye on this site which constantly updates with the latest uk pvr developments.

    Looks like the Fusion FVRT100 (not yet available but RRP is £249.99) might be worth looking at.

    The Fusion looks great, I just hope it's 430mm wide - the reason I won't consider the Pace Twin.

    I must say all my "free" channels on Sky digital are still working even though I don't have a Sky subscripion - any idea when they be "turned off" or is this actually mis-information?

    Thanks
