I'm looking to buy a freeview box that can record two channels or more at the same time, can also record a complete program series and also has pause and rewind live TV.
Any make or model number would be appreciated. Thanks.

This question has come up loads of times and there's really only one company making what you require. (OK, I suspect that you might find some obscure Chinese brands on Amazon or eBay but there's only one well-known brand). That's Humax. Here's their 'base' model, which will do everything you want...

An extra fifty quid gets you a few more 'bells and whistles' (but the cheaper version would be fine for you as long as there's enough recording time for your needs):

If you actually need 500 hours recording time, the next model in the range is this one:

. . . or if you really need 1000 hours recording time (allowing you view recorded programmes for around 6 weeks solid, without getting any sleep, 24 hours per day!), there's this model:

Thank you so much Buenchico, a perfect reply to my question
and it's down to my local Curry's showroom tomorrow.
Personally, I'd avoid Currys like the plague and buy from Richer Sounds (the Which? Retailer of the Year 2019)...

I’ve got a Humax box and it’s brilliant. I can record four channels at a time, and sometimes need it at 9.00.
