Hi all, looking for a freesat receiver, just for the free to air channels, plus using the card for channel 5, need to be able to record one channel, while being able to watch another, it needs to be HD, facility to record up to 500Gb on an internal or external hard drive, must be very easy to use, with an excellent epg for all channels for a full 7 days, must have a timer for recording while away from the house, must be ready to use with minimum setup and no need for little tweaking.

Any ideas much appreciated.

Chris.

You don't need a card for channel 5 as it's broadcast fta (as well as ftv). There's only currently one recording freesat pvr the Humax Foxsat-hdr but it's HDD is only 320Gb. It's very easy to upgrade the drive to 1Tb though

Many thanks Graham, it's appreciated.

Here in Spain, (Costa Blanca), Channel 5 is very difficult to pick up, so have been advised to get a fta card for £20 somewhere ? to be able to pick it up ?
