This is a Home Cinema system and the technical specs on the Sony website make no mention of recording.

I cant' find anything within your budget, I have one of these which is superb, but a lot more than £170 Perhaps you should consider buying the recorder (which you can get quite cheaply) and then adding the surround sound later?
