Please recommend a PVR. I believe I saw one in Tesco at ~ £130.
Simplicity of use (not masses of features) is paramount.
Unfortunately some of the newer ones are rather user unfriendly - I
bought a Samsung and disliked it sufficiently to put it to one side and
replace it with a second hand Humax PVR9300T which has a T2 tuner and is
fairly easy to set up and operate.
Mine was bought from ebay as a refurbished unit and has been as good as
gold. You could try there as a starting point. Typically they go for
something between £20 to £60 which is pretty cheap for a PVR.
PS - If you are quick, there is one with an auction ending in at 16:15
There are several others with a reasonable "Buy it now" price.
