A lovely DVD recorder with 160 Gigabytes to play with!

Not a digital conversion kit or a set top box, but a great addition to an existing digital set-up

Good if you don't have Freeview, but better if you already have it with your TV.

  • Excerpt: This is a great recorder if you already have Freeview with your Tv or a set top box. That will make it possible to watch a Freeview channel on your Tv while recording a different Freeview channel on the DVD.

  • Excerpt: I have read through Nibelung's review of this Sony machine and he does make some valid points about it. I also own this DVD recorder/hard drive/freeview tuner and I have to say that it is an absolutely superb piece of kit.

  • Excerpt: I bought this dvd recorder about seven or eight months ago. I'm a bit of a sony fan, and prior to buying this model, I owned a previous model which didn't have a hard disc drive. I thought this would be a cheap alternative to sky plus.

Freeview/Analog Set top box combo with Hard Drive and DVD recorder

Nibelung, Dooyoo
10 December 2007
  • Excerpt: Like it or not, Freeview TV is coming - that's the over-the-air digital TV that bit by bit will see off analogue TV, and in fact the process has started, with the whole country slated to be 'cut over' by 2012.

  • Excerpt: Previously we purchased a similar Samsung unit which, whilst slow to start up and at times fiddly to use was a whole different ballgame from the old world of VHS! Encouraged by this, and lacking Sky or a Freeview box in our bedroom I bought one of these and wow!

  • Excerpt: Ive recently bought a whole string of new Audio and Video kit. This Sony box is by far the best of the lot!! It does everything with relative ease. Picking a program out of the EPG to record is easy, and adding series link isnt much harder either.
