dvd recorder & sky
i get sky channels with no subscription. i would like a dvd recorder for late night programmes i miss. im not too bothered about recording a different channel to what im watching. and i dont really think i need a box with built in freeview (cos it would interfere with the free sky that i get?). can anyone tell me what product i need to be looking for?

As futricat said - see if you can afford a DVD recorder with a hard drive. Much easier to use the hard drive and then archive to DVD when you want to. If you only want to record and not archive to DVD, get a Freeview with hard drive (the Freeview won't interfere with your Sky). This would save you some money. Using just a DVD recorder means having DVDs to hand and having the right capacity. If you do use a DVD recorder, try to use rewriteable DVDs to save cost.
gpatto, as wideboy said, I only get the bbc channels, itv channels, the 'five' channels and no movies or sport or mtv. but i found i didnt watch most of the 'pay for' channels anyway, so when i cancelled i really havent missed them, just been saving �17 a month to save for what i now know i need - a dvd hard disc recorder. thanks everyone x
