Which - DVD Recorder (With Freeview and Hardrive)

4 replies
Found 22nd Mar 2008
Looking to buy a DVD recorder which has a hard drive (any size) and freeview. I already have a LCD TV with HD and built in freeview, however I need the DVD recorder to have freeview if I want to be able to record one channel and watch another at the same time (is this correct).

I don't mind buying off ebay, so if there is any good DVD recorders and they generally go cheap on ebay, let me know.

Looking to spend £220 max.

Cheers for your help


I would go for the Sony RDR-HXD870B found at digitaldirect for £179.99 including delivery digitaldirect.co.uk/pro…135. I have the older model which is brilliant.

I have Samsung DVD-SH853M 160GB Hard Drive Multi Format DVD Recorder With Freeview And HDMI, here is the link.


Free postage so it costs £149.99, hope that helps.
