My mate has finally given up on S-y but wants to be able to record F1 so he's in the market for a suitable receiver etc. My satellite receiver is a DrHD D15 which was quite popular when I got mine but I've seen a few disparaging remarks about them since and at £130 + the cost of a hard drive I'm wary of recommending it to a novice. I see Humax Freesat PVRs are not too bad on price but are they sufficiently user friendly in non-Freesat mode?

I know this is very subjective but what would you recommend?

Thanks

any cheap hd stb than can record to hdd via usb should do the trick... look at the ferguson ariva range or maybe a skybox f3s

I just connect my receiver to my DVD recorder, via a scart lead, and record using that, set to AV, on the tuner.

The Technomate 5402 HD M2 CI Super+ is a good easy to use receiver, just plug a portable hard drive or USB stick into it to record.

it is possible record only RTL SD.
RTL HD with CI+ (HD+) module is not possible to record at all.

Thanks for the pointer. SD is better than 'No F1' :)
