Wanting a recommendation on something under $600, at least 320gb, and no internet connection required for day to day use (firmware updates can be done at my mother in laws, but no internet day to day).
Freeview crippled is fine, and I'd prefer a PVR that would run the latest freeview guide for ease of use, it also has to be incredibly easy to use like the TIVO, which unfortunately requires a permanent internet connection.
Absolutely no need for any computer filetypes to play on it.
A fantastic bonus would be a built in bluray player, as she is also wanting to upgrade the DVD player but struggles with switching aux inputs on the TV and it would be easier to just leave the TV on one channel. However if this isn't possible I'm thinking of pointing her toward a Samsung Anynet bluray player to go with her Samsung TV, so it will auto switch aux when a bluray is inserted.
I've been trying to search, but most of what I can find is from 2008 or 2010.
