Thanks millarcat.
Be aware that although its twin tuner you cannot record two channels at the same time ( so defeats the object of having twin tuners).

The £119 Matsui ( at currys) can record 2 channels at once and seems to be getting really good feedback on digitalspy forums. The digitalspy forums are very good source of information on these Freeview PVRs.

Not being able to record two programmes at the same doesn't 'defeat the object of having twin tuners' - as it allows you to watch one channel whilst recording another.

However, the Matsui is a very feature rich PVR at an excellent price.

Thanks for the excellent link. That's a keeper. Hopefully it gets updated regularly. The feature sets on these PVRs seem to change with every software update.

Looks like they are about £19 delivered:

You might find it easier to search for Techwood PVR80 or PVR160 ( its exactly the same model )
There is one here for £9.95 delivered but it is horrible looking layout ( looks like they use a standard remote for all models and program them).
