PVR Digital Recorders
Personal video recorders ( PVRs ) are used to record television programmes. Unlike video recorders or DVD Recorders which use removable tapes or discs to record programmes to, a PVR records TV to an internal hard disk. This means that a PVR's storage capacity is huge more than 150 hours of programming is typical, and the largest can store 500 hours worth of TV before the hard drive is full. There are two types of PVR. Standard Definition (SD) and High Definition (HD). If you have a High Definition (HD Ready) TV it is well worth buying a Freeview HD PVR so you can record and play back High Definition programmes after Digital Switch over.
All PVR's have EPG ( Electronic Programming Guide) this makes it easy for you to select the programmes you want to record from a program guide and the simply press the record button to record it. Some PVRs also have a Series Link so so press of a button records the whole series.
