I'm looking into getting my first good DVR/PVR/whatever and I think have found that the Panasonic DMR-BWT835GZ does everything I want, but I also see the there is an 840 and since it's has 5 more GZs on it I wonder if it might be better. Does anyone know the useful differences between the two models? And can anyone recommend any other devices that can do the following:
- Twin HD Freeview Tuners
- MyFreeview (i.e. it can record a whole season of something and deal with the broadcaster shifting the start time by 5 minutes each week)
- Stream recorded TV via standard DLNA so I don't require proprietary apps on iOS or Android to view the content from another room
Final question for now: Since I am not in an immediate rush do DVR manufacturers operate on any sort of pattern with regard to releasing new devices? I could wait until the new year if there is likely to be a new round of hardware coming out then, even if it doesn't do anything new it might bring down the prices of the current hardware.
