Newsthump on top form.

We had it for a couple of years for a few things, then realised that we were mostly getting value from the Sky+ box and hardly watched any channels on Sky.

Switched to Freeview PVR - cost about £150. Paid for itself in 6 months.

TS, do you mean a "TiVo"? We use those, Freeview box with hard drive recorder, costs about £180 from memory. The one in the front room is full of movies, time I acquired a fourth one.

Can't you download the movies onto something else?

The Stigler said...


I've not had any need to do so, but apparantly our Humax Freeview box can be plugged into a PC and mounted as an external drive and you can just copy the movies off.

For me, I watch most movies once then delete them. The ones I really like I get on DVD or Blu-Ray.

B, my son's girlfriend puts them on data sticks. But in terms of £ per GB of storage, the Sagecom digi-recorder box is actually cheaper than data sticks.

I've tried downloading stuff to a hard drive but it takes ages and keeps crashing.
