    I've been seaching the web for the following all in one solution:

    DVD player
    Freeview box
    Digital Recorder (HD and DVD-R)

    I found this one company and they have two products(http://www.humaxdigital.com/uk/products/f2-foxt.asp) but it's still not what I'm looking for.

    Surely there must be something out there!

    I'm not 100% on this, but I think a PC is the only way you'll achieve this.

    You'd need: (assuming you have a PC)

    any recent Ati GFX card £50+
    Nebula Pci Freeview card £115 ( comes with top$ VCR software )
    DVD writer £50 max these days

    this would give you much better picture for both DVDs and Digi than you'll get with seperate boxes, but obviously there's the fact that you'll need a PC first.

    best i can do for you matey, I'm strictly a '1-box' man myself and found PC the only way to get good quality at sensible prices.

    If you want any advice just gimme a shout....

    I asked one of the magazine's this the other month (Via a letter that didn't make press. No free speakers, oh well) and they wrote back to me saying that towards the end of the year, this solution will be available from Sony, Pioneer, Sharp, Toshiba, etc.

    Best of luck and hope you find a perfect solution.
