Twin channel Freeview box with PVR

I'm a bit of a technophobe and a lot of a tightwad. With that in mind can anyone recommend an easy to set up and use freeview box with PVR that's not going to cost me a fortune?


Also, anyone know if some freeview boxes pick up more channels than others? Can't seem to get 5, 5US, ABC1 on mine but don't know if it's because of my location (rural) or my current cheapo freeview box.

Thanks for looking.

You may want to read the threads on here before buying from Microdirect or buying a Digifusion box.

Pot luck what the Digifusion's condition is. They also tend to be underpowered, and come back with a HOLD message. The Power Supply Units need upgrading.

If you live near Manchester makes it easier to return it to the shop.

Still a lot cheaper than other machines out there - most famous names under £100 with a twin tuner are Sagem (try Argos) or Hitachi.

I have a Digifusion and now a Sony. The Sony has a better signal. On some bands I was getting 60% signal. On the Sony it was up to 65%. So it may be worth reading a few reviews to see which has a better signal strength.

with PVRs you tend to get what you pay for..the cheaper the product the less reliable they are....my advice would be to save up for a Humax 9200 at the least..you can get Currys to price match the PCWORLD online price of £[URL="file://\\3149.99"]149.99[/URL] as it's never in stock at PCWORLD.

Do Currys definitely price match the £149.99 price? I didn't think they would as it's online and out of stock...

Greg, get it in the shop for sure, not on line.

Got a tv from currys online and have to deal with the Tech Guys for repairs.

If you buy something in a shop, you find it better if you have a problem.

Out of interest, have you tried John Lewis, "never knowingly undersold"?

Well I'm only going by what someone posted on HUKD...that they got a price match of £149.99 from Currys...you can only try.

Currys in Canterbury refused to price match PC Word's £149.99 for the old model and refused to price match Dixon's £175 for the new model.

Think I'm going to have to order on line from Dixons....
