Didn't mean to mislead you, I;m actually using a Panasonic DVD-Recorder, not a 
Freeview plus hard disk box.

  Hi Darren -

  Thanks for that website, I've looked there, and it's good for info, but of 
course, don't know about accessibility!

  I'm ok when it comes to learning keystrokes, the problem is with menus, and 
knowing where I am starting from, as not all of these kind of things return to 
the same place after recording!

  Wondering what unit you are having some success with?

    Andy, I can recommend the following site as a good jumping-off point for 
info on boxes and their features. 


    As far as being able to set these things up for recording etc, I've always 
had to go down the road of learning a sequence of keystrokes and hoping to luck 
that I've got them right when it comes down to it!

      Hi all -

      My research on this so far, has produced the below item from Argos, which 
looks pretty much what I'm after, but I'm wondering about it's accessibility, 
so anybody seen one or using one? any body got any comments on Sagem as a brand?

      Also Elsewhere, I have seen something called the IPLAYER plus that seems 
to have the ability to deliver the audio described signal, it claims to be the 
only top box to do this, is this true does anybody know? And will it record, or 
is it just a receiver? Grateful for any help in this mine field!
