PVRs and Iplayer


Standard Member
hi all,

sorry if this is a repeated question for this section, but I'd like some advice.

I'm currently looking to buy a new TV, My budget is about £300-500, I'm not OVERLY fussed about micro-details of tech specs, lag, colour balace, black index or anything else which the layman (i.e. me and my family) would notice when flicking through the channels.


I've currently got a standard def Freeview+ box, which I use and am very happy with my old, heavy, windup 30" TV.

I don't know if i should get a good/cheap £350 LCD tv and spend the money on a top spec PVR OR buy an exspensive all singing dancing TV

I want...

Record TV, preferably with twin tuners so I can watch and record another channel
Access to iPlayer (and YouTube, 4OD, ITV player etc if possible)

Can anyone offer any advice about TV or TV&PVR and can anyone advise modles?
