I was, however, told that the Igloo tuner is not/will not be a recorder. I was told, though, that it will have "pause live TV" capability (have to plug in a USB stick). And, although I asked what "free to air" channels Igloo will transmit I did not get an answer. I wished to know whether the free to air channels that Igloo referred to as those it would transmit would be all of the (current) terrestrial Freeview channels - after all they are all free. I just got a speil that directed me to the Freeview site to find out what (Freeview) channels were available.
Have mulled it over. Seems to me that Igloo has to be taken as a supplement to Freeview. And, that is only really necessary if I wish to utilise the extra options (some Sky channels, movies, sports). If I wish to have the ability to record anything then I need a Freeview approved PVR or twin tuner device - I am aware of the options on the market. And, it seems that none of the Igloo transmissions - including the "extras" - will be able to be recorded (save for the pause live TV option - that is not really a recording function as one would presently use it).
So, guess that if I need acess to all the "freebie" digital options I shall have to have an Igloo tuner plus a Freeview tuner/recorder.
Does this sound like a reasonable of my options?
Thanks for any thoughts and comments.
