Record Freeview HD and burn it to Blu-ray

Extensive feature set, picture quality, operating system, twin tuners

This slimline beauty can not only play DVDs and Blu-ray discs, but also records them. Thanks to DVB-T2 technology, HD and SD digital TV programmes alike can be captured by the 250GB HDD. There are two such tuners, and so you can record two different...

Very expensive, unintuitive remote control, and adverts on the EPG(!)

Looks good, easy to use, my previous dvd recorder was Panasonic and the instructions for use are similar. Only had it for a short time so can only comment on basic record and playback, havn't recorded onto disc yet but from past experience Panasonic...

Case is a bit plastic and the layout of TV guide and recorded programes not so easy on the eye as my older machine but maybe there is a choice of layout
