I've just picked up an LG OLED TV (at a knock down price) to convert from my beloved Plasma.
Fantastic picture, gorgeous colour / blacks, upscaling, more Internet TV (Iplayer etc) and 4k / HDR content becoming more generally available through Netflix. And plenty of modern movies "generally available" for watching. Straightforward.
But... (It's tech, there's always a but)
Although the TV has both Freesat & Freeview tuners, I hate the LG Smart TV programme guide (all those figging irrelevant channels), and I'm sceptical about the ability to file recorded programmes.
So, I'm thinking that I should KEEP my Humax Freesat PVR, with its clear programme guide and clear precise listings of old recordings.
I just want to be able to see what's on less than a dozen HD TV Channels. Basically BBC, ITV, 4. And then record them automatically for watching later.
Am I right - is a PVR such as Humax, SKY or Virgin, still the best way to control channels, see upcoming content, schedule recordings, and see past live TV?
"What does the team think?"
