    Hi guys, can anyone answer me this question please?

    Is there a Freeview PVR out there that allows recording from another source other than the freeview channels? :confused:

    I have a motorised satallite system (Technomate TM5000 DAPCI) and would like to be able to record from it, whilst watching a freeview channel.

    I have tried serching but can not seem to find an answer to this question.

    Thanks in advance

    Simon

    AFAIK all of the Freeview integrated recorders can only record from their internal tuners.
    I think your only real options are a DVD recorder - perhaps with a HDD although this is not a PVR. Or you could go for a TiVo which could be connected to both a Freeview box and your satallite box.

    Ok, thanks for that Mark, at least I know now.

    That being the case, which is the best one to get? The Humax 8000T, the Fusion FVRT100 (twin tuners) or any others you would recommend?

    Thanks

    Panny have a new one out and there should be some DVD-R machines with FV tuners out before the end of the year.
