Freeview recorders, what to look for?

My MIL is after a freeview recorder as she is fed up of for paying for sky. Basically neither of us have a clue what is good or not. She isn't bothered about HDD and idealy wants to spend no more than £100, £120 max. Even better if it is a bit of a bargain!!
Can anyone give me any advice on what to look for or any links to any cheap deals?
Thanks

Get one with a duel receiver so you can watch one channel while recording another

I have a Humax. There are cheaper ones, but I have read some dire reviews on here about them failing. Go for a good brand.

I have this one, ]http//ww…tml tis sweet.

Look for whether the connections on the box and whether suit your connnection needs/ future needs.

you can find it cheaper now, but I have used/had the Thomson and Humax ones which are cheap but they played up something chronic had 2 replacements of each before settling on this one.
