    As per title does anyone know of a PVR capable of recording catchup/on demand services from Freeview or Freesat other than Sky HD boxes with sub?

    Possible workaround. Use a digital modulator with a freeview+ pvr tuned to the modulator DVB-T HD output.

    A Custom firmware equipped HDR FOX T2 can record the streamed buffer but only has iplayer.

    I already have a modulator and 2 Panasonic Freeview+ recorders (one bluray/HDD and one DVD/HDD) which I can use for archiving HD recordings (including catchup from all 5 PSB families) from my Sky HD box but was looking to see if there was another easy one box solution not requieing a subscription.
