they will not get rte stations after oct 24 on the setup they have now.
They have this box connected to a saorview ready tv so will they still need to get another box in oct or will this new telly automatically pick up rte's??
If the TV is saorview ready, and if they can currently get RTE2 with the HD logo on the screen then they will be fine.
A combo box will allow the use of one remote and one channel list, which is what I think you need. All combo boxes currently for sale have limited record ability. You can only record what you are watching. You also need to buy external hard drive seperately and connect it. -best to buy from same supplier.
If the future we hope better recording boxes will come on the market with similar features to a Sky box.
