Default Please recommend a DTT PVR

Please recommend a PVR. I believe I saw one in Tesco at ~ 130.
Simplicity of use (not masses of features) is paramount.
Thanks.


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
today:

or http://tinyurl.com/jxs45pu

There are several others with a reasonable "Buy it now" price.
