Freesat+/ freeview+ Help Needed

Have cancelled my sky+hd subscription and now need a freesat+HD/freeview HD recorder box. I have today returned the Philips HDT8520 because of freezing and crashing. I am looking to spend about £260ish but everything I look at has crashing, recording or some other issue’s is there any that work ?

Thanks in advance anyone

Can't you use your previous Sky HD box and obtain the Freesat Viewing Card from Sky - rather than purchase another box? That's what I plan to do when my contract is up with them next month.

I thought you lose the recording functionality when going down that route?

What about the Humax 500Gb box, was posted on here a few days ago at Amazon for £231

yes you loose the recording functionality as soon as the subscruption ends, Ive still got the dish so the
humax foxsat hdr 500 might be a contender

Ive got the 320GB Humax and Im very happy with it, Getting BBC i player on its is a big plus
