    They seem to be common in the rest of the world but we have no program guide in America so I guess an FTA DVR would be less useful here. Im sure you could order one from overseas if you really wanted one.
    I think I saw one adverised that could record 5 different shows at the same time while you watched a 6th channel from a max of two different transponders.

    - Concurrent working of PVR and DVR in perfect
    - MPEG-2 TS stream Recording format

    - Instant-Recording for Efficient HDD Saving
    - Camcorder
    - Digital Camera

    I think if someone gets to the point that they are recording 6 shows at once they might need to go outside, get some fresh air and maybe read a book. :)

    I'd hate to see the pricetag on that one.

    Did you click that link? The Pansat 6000 HXC is displayed there.

    Another tactic is to add a FTA card to a computer.

    dreambox makes some nice fta dvr's, the 500 can be found for around $330cdn, uses a network fileshare for recording. no blind scan though :( I use my coolsat for that, read the channel list and upload it to my dreambox.

    I would say just use a reglar fta reciever and just buy a regular dvr at your local electronic store with dvd burner. I am sure if you wana pay $300 for a dvd recorder and a dvr thats totally separate from fta. Can be used for alot of different things. This is just a suggestion or an alternative.

    And this is the cheapest tactic, provided you have a computer already:) :
    Starbox sells for $70 - 80 . I try to record with it and ProgDVB - works fine, but USB2 is recommended.
