Asking for some insight / recommendations for my Father in Law. I've not really got any knowledge as I am fully Sky+ HD at home.
He has two TVs at home. One is on Freeview with a really old failing Humax PVR. In his other room is an old hand me down HD TV on Freesat. (Don't ask me why he's got Freeview in one and Freesat in the other).
The old hand down Humax PVR is failing and needs replacing. As far as I can see the UI is awful and not easy to use, the remote isn't much better. So I'm not a Humax fan.
So F-i-L calls me and says he wants to get rid of the Freeview recorder and get a Freesat recorder instead.
Now I've done a bit of googling and as far as I can tell there is a better selection of Freeview recorders compared to Freesat. I don't mind which I just want to recommend a decent system with a good user experience.
Other options? Maybe get a nice up to date HD TV with built in Freesat - use an external harddrive for recording with the built in tv guide? Experiences?
Any suggestions / recommendations appreciated. I just wanna say 'splash the cash and get Sky HD+'. It's easy and it works (tho expensive). I don't think he can get the PO signed by the Mother in Law
