4.5 Started off great - but ..... february1964 | 15/05/2009 | See all february1964's reviews (1) I purchased this as wanted to be able to record from freeview. Very east to use - but I thought I would be able to watch one station while recording another - you can't it doesn't have dual channels, but that ws my fault for not reading it properly. Had great reception when I first used it - bt it seems to be deteriorating - is this my area or the machine?? The DVD-RAM is a great idea to chase back recordings and they aren't that expensive. All in all a good purchase.
