Hi,
Would anyone recommend a PVR that's compatable with Netflix?
Im also after a PVR that can wifi to a keyboard and mouse so I can web browse

Ive been a long suffering mysky user, have had enough, but a bit out of touch with the latest hardware out there.

Would appreciate some advice
Thanks
Geoff

So you want smething that can record Freeview (dvb-s or dvb-t?) and play Netflix? Unless some of the Freeview revirders can Do it say Skye of the Panasonic ones, your best bet might be to build one....or buy a media player and sat/dvbt tuner separately.

I have a Panasomic BWT-840GZ PVR (their most expensive model in March when I bought it) and it doesn't even have Netflix. The online apps are horrible and I don't think you can hook up a keyboard. I'm not sure you'll find a PVR with a good browser. Personally I think you'd be better either getting a cheaper PVR and a little Windows TV box like a Minix Neo Z64 (which I have and love) or go with the suggestion above for a full HTPC solution that can receive and record Freeview.
