is there anyway of telling if the tuner unit in the tv is good spec because the standalone units have a wide quality range or would i be better off buying a good quality standalone unit all advice appreciated. Thanks
The Freesat tuner will operate a single channel. That is tune to a channel and watch it If you need to record another- then you need not only another tuner/box but a mod to the LNB[ the bit in the dish] I discovered with when having ordered a HumaxBox' then swapped it within days for box and recorder, the install guys had also to 'mod' the dish bit.
So on that score get the Freesat TV by all means you will still need a box/recorder to record other than the station being watched. A typical Freesat/recorder box has two tuners each connected by its own line to the dual LNB set up in the dish.
