Philips DVDR3577H DVD/HDD Recorder


Nice bit of kit, but where's the tuner for the digital switchover?

Despite being an attractive, feature-packed and modestly priced combi, we can't help but wonder how much better the DVDR3577H could have been with a digital tuner on board. As it stands, the analogue tuner will no doubt make many people overlook this...
