On seeing the latest Ofcom consultation document on the Digital Switch-over timetable, it seems to me that they have completely overlooked the issue of DVD Recorders still being sold fitted with only Analogue Tuners. With some Areas having Analogue TV switched off in only about a year, the purchase of a DVD Recorder with an Analogue Tuner means that the machine has a life span of only about a year! (Unless you buy another set top box). Ofcom has issued a rule that manufacturers must fit cam slots to integrated Digital TVs so that they van be used as and when, but seems to have overlooked the current fast replacement of the VHS Recorder by the DVD Recorder. If the Government is to acheive its' timetable for the switch-over then surely Ofcom should assist in this by both ensuring that Manufacturers provide the receiving equipment and that the Consumer (YOU & ME) is not being sold built-in redundancy. I have e-mailed my comments to Ofcom, asking them to ensure manufacturers fit Digital Tuners into DVD Recorders. May I suggest that if other Forum Members were to do the same then Ofcom might take action to force manufacturers forward on fitting Digital Tuners. They are currently asking for views.
