Panasonic’s latest PVR has the benefit of providing a Freeview digital receiver as well as a hard drive recorder. The TU-CTH100 comes with two tuners so you can record two shows at once, or record one and watch another. There’s an 80GB hard drive for saving programmes, which should mean space for up to 45 hours of footage. Time-slip technology is present, allowing you to pause and rewind live television. There’s some nice features, such as the “picture in picture” and “picture and picture” facility that lets you watch two screens simultaneously and the lock option that lets you keep favourite recordings safe from accidental deletion. the TU-CTH100 costs £280.
