Re: aerial or not?

~ £200 is for a 1TB HD Humax recorder. as a direct compare to a 1TB Tivo. 500gb is cheaper but fills faster.

 we used to use TVonics but they went bust and used ones became hard to find

 the cheap makes get terrible reviews and a PVR that cannot be trusted to record is a waste of money

 we used to use TVonics but they went bust and used ones became hard to find, and after 3 had died we switched to Humax, via ebay

Re: aerial or not?

my 3 dead tvonics was over, like 10 years. they are/are pretty good for the price.  but sooner or later, all hard drives die,

 the issues with the cheap makes, say reviews, is bad software / firmware leading to lost recordings. 

Tivo has its weak points but forgetting to record stuff is not one of them

Re: aerial or not?

You will need a FREEVIEW PLAY Recorder now if you want to Record Freeview channels through an aerial,
this will also future-proof you to some extent when things change
like moving from DVD-T to DVB-T2 Transmission standards
Boxes are available all over the place including Amazon
Disk Sizes are 500GB - you cannot record much on this box if you are/wanting to record lots of things
1TB - Medium range, enough for heavy users
2TB - Superior available through the Humax Direct website
Colours for Humax Boxes 500GB/1TB Cappuccino - White
Mocha Brown
2TB - Nero - Blackish
Panasonic box - Black
