i am thinking of getting a samsung 32" idtv with freeview, i have a hard drive/dvd recorder that only has an analogue tuner installed.am i going to be stuck with the same problem i have at the moment with sky, in that i can only record the channel i leave the tv tuned into. is it possible to be able to go away for a week and programme the recorder to copy to hard drive say 2 different programmes on 2 different days.
with more people getting digital tv's with integrated freeview surely someone must come up with a fix to the problem for all the people who rushed out and got hard drive recorders with an analogue tuner? cheers tatmac.

Freeview signals are digital, as you will be aware.

They are converted back to analogue if you have an analogue TV - otherwise you wouldn't be able to watch them.

On a genuine digital TV this is not necessary.
