Er is it a DVD player, is it a digital terrestrial box? Well, actually it’s both. Goodmans is the latest company to have gone combi crazy with a Freeview box wrapped up inside a DVD player (or is it the other way round).
Whatever, the GDB400DVD features an aerial loopthrough which allows simultaneous recording from Freeview to a separate VCR or DVD recorder while watching a DVD movie. The only minor disappointment is that the EPG for Freeview’s 30 or so channels is only now and next (unlike the Digifusion model we wrote about the other day).
On the plus side, it is very cheap at £199. So if you know anyone who wants to watch digital movies and digital TV this Christmas it might be worth checking out. Goodmans www.goodmans.co.uk
