I've just revamped my entertainment system with a new Sony home theatre receiver, and this encouraged me to purchase a Sony DVD recorder. All of this gear goes extremely well, so now I'm looking at upgrading my satellite equipment.
The SKY guy will be here tomorrow to check out the decoder, but I think I need a Freeview unit also, as we can't get channels 2 and 3 here in Arrowtown on our regular aerial, and 1 isn't much better.
My question: I notice that the Freeview shop has a fairly large selection of receivers; which one should I buy?
The Hills HSM075 seems to get good raps, but there are other, cheaper units that may be just as good for all I know. Also, I notice that the Hills comes with a splitter, while other units seem to have an inbuilt looping system.
As I said, we have a SKY dish and reception is good, but I would like to be able to get 1,2,3 independently to allow more recording flexibility.
Advice would be appreciated.
