MMMMM - Must win Freeview PVR

‘Home theatre’ setup consists of an old Samsung 43″ rear projection TV bought from Trademe with bad convergence for $66.  Gave it a tuneup in the service menu and she runs cherry.  Actually accepts a 1080i signal from offbrand FreeviewHD STB (Diginet) purchased from 1-day for $140.  PVR capability via a cast-off 60GB laptop HDD and a USB adapter.  Only one tuner though, so I can only watch a different channel than I’m recording if it’s on the same MUX.  Poor me – would love a dual-tuner PVR so I can record something more interesting than the ’emotionally confused woman doctor’ shows that my wife is interested in.
