The TV says you can record the freeview yes you can, but you can't record it and watch another chanel, so essentially you are watching the programme you are wanting to watch later the worst part is that you can't even switch the source say onto HDMI or it'll cancel the recording.
The record function is beyond hidious, I bought a cheap 15 pounds freeview recorder and non that you can record two things and still watch another chanel.
The sound quality is terribe, next to no bass in output, the colors are dull despite being a samsung screen.
The only redeming feature is the 32" screen where the average price for that size of TV is around 254 pounds, but does not justify the other issues.
I would not recomend, what so ever.
