Mine's a UK PVR and it's designed for viewing/recording Freeview (digital OTA SDTV in the UK) and has a 160GB hard disc - I'm not totally sure but I don't think there's a USA version - though I'm not too sure. There are newer models out.
Okay. I look forward to seeing it next time I cross the pond. (I also want to see how Eurka147, and DVB-T is working when I get to see some friendson the continent.
The reason for my original question is, I've been wanting to obtain a stand-alone replacement for my old VCR. Everything I've heard of so far either requires a subscription and/or connection to CATV/Satellite/Internet or requires a computer with a tunercard. I'm needing something with a built-in tuner that is simply connected to an antenna, and the TV (and the electrical mains, of course); nothing else.
Should hear of such (on either side of the pond) I'd like to know. Even though our modulations scheme here is different, many of the products made in UK (and in Australia) are made from a multi-national perspective.
