    No PVR can record from an external source...they record from the tuner only.

    I see you have asked a similar question in an Inverto thread. ALL Freeview PVRs can record only Freeview from their own internal tuner, and nothing else.

    If you want a new device, then you need a HDD-DVD recorder. Or the PVR that's proprietary to your cable operator.
