    Hi,

    A friend is looking to upgrade his DVD/Video Recorder to a HDMI/DVD/HDD/Freeview box.

    He really like the Samsung unit however it doesnt have Freeview! Is there a model coming out soon that features freeview or another unit that is already out but doesnt look like some old betamax video recorder (see the panasonic unit!)

    TIA.

    £400ish..

    He was willing to spend that on the Panasonic unit but he thinks its ugly!

    I presumed it was lower as he was considering Samsung (decent make but they're not Sony or Panasonic).

    I highly recommend a Pioneer 540. It doesn't have HDMI but then with SD content there is little to any difference between HDMI and Progressive Component. It has DivX which I find very useful.
