    Hi there all

    see this one at argos: argos.co.uk/sta…htm

    Its for my gran who still has a VHS but my uncle was planning on buying that one for her as it would be alot easier

    or does anyone have any better recomendations

    thanks

    also can you record freeview channel while watching BBC1 or another freeview channel

    You don't need a Top Up TV card, it will work on the normal free channels, it just has the slot for a card if you want to subscribe to it. (With a card you get 2 weeks epg, without only 1 week)

    It has 2 tuners, you can watch one and record another or record 2 at once and it has series link

    It's OK, I think it's a vestel box but can't find any reviews on AV Forums, cheap price though.

    The reviews on Argos are mainly good (there are some bad ones burried in there) but overall 3.8 out of 5.

    If they can afford it go for the Humax 9150 (about £130 and 2 years warranty) or even a refurb Humax 9200 from Humax direct (about £105 and 1 years warranty)

    Edit

    These are excluded from the 30 day money back guarentee so you can't take it back if they don't like it

    LOL, of course :whistling:

    A quick search on DigitalSpy and it is a Vestel TUTV clone, some of these have a issue with freezing, easily fixed, when it happens unplug the machine for a few minutes or just take it back.

    Have a read through some of the threads ]here

    in fact, just picked up another humax pvr-9150t from pc world for £84.81 delivered!

    just checked and now out of stock so guess I got the last one.

    worth keeping an eye on though
