      Twin Tuner Freeview Box ?

      Any idears on a good twin tuner freeview box, needs to be easy to use with a good EPG.
      looking to spend about 120
      it's for the inlaws as a thank you, and i would have got the sky pack for 75, but they do not want the dish or pay for the channels (its mostly the soaps)

      i had a quick look around and found this, but thought i'd ask here for any more idears

      thanks in advance for any help (or not )

      I know its more than your budget but I'd recommend the Humax 9200.
      I had the single tuner version and it was excellent.

      thanks penrhn, i'll have a search

      i have just seen this Thomson box which looks good (has series link) and its only 99


      Edit: just had a look at the Humax and looks really good, but mabey a bit over specced for what the inlaws may use it for (and its 179 which is a bit more than i can budget for)

      Re: Twin Tuner Freeview Box ?

      I've had the Humax for nearly 2 years now, bigger hard drive than my Sky +, but not as reliable for recording (better than most VCR's), and not quite as easy to use. It's not that it's bad, just that Sky + is better. Overlappping programs on Freeview (2 on one channel) doesn't always work, where sky + is flawless. I would however recommend it, picture quality is good, and the box itself is reliable.
