Its a daewoo SV900 if you want a bit of a google, and yes it does go on
tapes. They are shipping about 2000 over here soon apparently, so I don't
know if you would ever see one... could start other manufacturers releasing
There is also a hard drive type recorder in argos for about £350, and a
pointless DVD player (yes player) with freeview for £200.
£160 sounds a bit steep though - £40 for a decoder, £40 for a video
recorder, and £80 for being able to record off the program guide. ATM
freeview only works on "now and next" program guide content, but there are
plans to make it a full EPG soon, and the recorder would download an update
as and when this happened.
I don't know if I ought to chime in here, but it is said, (and I've no
personal knowledge) that the Setpal tuner from Novopal is superior.
It is only on a few models - I would certainly check it out if I were
buying, but to answer the response to a crack I made earlier, even with
BBC4 and Radio 6 I'm not tempted!
Of course now Murdoch has booted Ch5 off freesky, that could be a reason
for buying if 5 is a problem
You may think they're pointless (and I would agree that I wouldn't have one)
but I can think of some people that would say "you're not having any more
boxes stacked up by the television!" This neatly sidesteps the problem of
adding another function - the manufacturers know thats their market and
price it accordingly.
