    Hi there,

    I'm looking at buying a pvr but would appreciate a little advice from you AV gurus before I purchace. The boxes I'm looking at all include an integrated dvd player, they include:

    Daewoo DHD4000D
    JVC XV-DDV1
    Samsung DVD-H40
    Thomson DTH7000U
    Thomson DTH7500

    My question has 2 parts:

    1) Which of these would you recommend and for what reasons (or would you suggest something else?)?

    2) I currently have NTL cable - how would these systems work with it and how can I watch 1 channel and record another?

    I appreciate these are fairly basic questions but if you could shed any light on the above it would really help!!

    Just bought dth7000u. I am relatively pleased with it. Recording in standard mode gives 20hrs which is just about sufficient - but picture quality is fine.

    You can watch a terrestrial channel and record a cable channel - but not watch cable and record a different cable channel - you would need a dual tuner cable box - ~(doesnt exist for ntl?)

    I havent yet managed to control the cable STB from the DTH7000 recorder yet - but i believe it is possible.

    DTH7500 is just a 80Gb version of the dth7000 i think.

    Also bought it from unbeatable at a bargain price of 338+postage
