Which PVR with USB transfer?

Hi, can anyone please recommend a good twin tuner freeview pvr that has a USB connection so that I can transfer recorded shows on to a laptop (quickly)?

I previously owned a Humax PVR9200T which was great but I found the USB transfer slow & the picture quality wasn't great when playing through VLC media player on my laptop. I was about to buy the newer Humax PVR9300T model but then I found out that the USB port isn't functional, is this correct?

Any help/recommendations gratefully appreciated.

Yes the Topfield TF5800PVR

This looks like it will do the trick. I'm going to check it out when my local branch gets some stock. :thumbsup:

Thant looks interesting, if you manage to have a look at one I would be curious to know what format it records the programmes into i.e. MPEG2 or AVI? How noisy the unit is?
I'm assuming it has a single tuner.

I think it's a single tuner, but I've got a Virgin TV box, so that's not a problem.
It should be a good way of archiving programmes and films you want to keep.

I'm fairly certain it will record to MPEG2, which is native Freeview coding.

I can't see any fans, so unless you connect a hard disk to it, it's got no moving parts so it should be silent (totally silent if you use a USB stick)

The stock level is 'pre-order', so it must be a brand new line for Maplin. I'm going to slip down to Maplin when they get some stock.

For an extra tenner, this does all the above but can play back Divx & Xvid movies.

Looks good.

Again, it's not in stock, but I'll check it out when they come in.
