Hi there,

Since subscribing to Netflix I've decided to give Mysky HDi the boot If I can find a freeview DVB-T Pvr as good.

Is there a freeview HD product as good as a mysky hd box? Something that can record three channels at once.

A few years ago I tried a JC Matthew myfreeview it was terrible!!!! JC Matthew offered nothing in the way of support either.

I've got a Magic TV pvr and from my, admittedly, limited use of Mysky it seems to do everything as well.

The Panasonic DVD recorders are good in my experience. The XW390 seems to be on run-out pricing at the moment (as a new model has come out) so could potentially be a real bargain. However, it will only record two channels at once, not three as you are after.

Can't beat a Panasonic (except the PWT models which have no external AV inputs).
The BWT835 is now under $600.
I doubt you'll find any terrestrial recorder that will record 3 channels at once though as most have two tuners max. You'd either need two recorders or two Tuner cards in your PC.
