Hi Danny,

I stumbled across this product yesterday and was a little overjoyed that Samsung released a dedicated PVR with twin Tuner.
I downloaded the manual from the Samsung website (which doesn't have a product page at the mo) and was dissappointed to learn it didn't explicitly state recording two channels at once.

1)Do you know if Samsung could/might be able to correct this with a future firmware update?
2) Is the Samsung better than the equally priced Sony SVR-HDT500 or Humax recorder?

I was thinking of purchasing the Samsung 37D6100 with this PVR, but I'm not sure now? Seems an oversight bearing in mind Sky/Virgin have offered a feature for over 12 months.

I'm amazed you gave this product such a glowing review. A PVR that cannot record two channels at once is as much use as a chocolate teapot.

Shouldn't we all be waiting for YouView boxes?

A twin tuner that can't record 2 programs at once! I didn't get past the list of cons. Not worth reading the review
