I'd also be interested in recommendations for a PVR.

Don't have one yet but I've been looking at the Humax PVR-9200T which was
recommended in Feb 2006 issue of PCW Buyer's Guide. Best price I can find
is around 209 inc delivery.
Also considered a Tivo but don't want to pay 10 per month for the EPG
feature (I could probably get Sky+ and Multiroom for that price).

What's the current flavour of the month in the line of freeview PVRs?

I have a Thomson DHD4000 which is a cracking unit and I was thinking of
putting a bigger drive in (standard fitment is 40Gb) but now I'm thinking
passing on to my inlaws (as it's been absolutely stable since I've had it)
and getting something newer.

I'd like something with twin freeview tuners, a bigger hard disc and - if
possible - the ability to pull recordings off onto a PC for writing to a
(whether by USB or by Ethernet). The only thing I didn't like with the
Thomson DHD4000 was that you couldn't start to watch a recording whilst it
was still being recorded so that would be nice. (Anyone know if there are
any units that fit this bill that have integrated DVD writers?)
