    Hi, Im after some help please.

    I was reading an aricle in a magazine, which stated you can use a PVR device with your free view box.

    I have a starview box, and was wondering if i can use the PVR device with my starview box, for better menu selection and descriptions of whats showing, while also recording etc.

    Would this be possible, if so how would i go about this?

    Thanks in advance for any advice.

    Im not really sure mate, I dont have one.
    I would say its pretty much the same though !
    you could be better off getting a eurovox ( great epg)
    and hooking an external hardrive up to it to record channels ...

    Hi, thanks for the replies, a great help.

    You reckon a Eurovox is the better box then?

    Would you recommend a place that sells it?

    I live on the UK in the "telewest" region.

    Which is the better box, Dreambox or Eurovox?

    I would prefer one with a good TV menu.
