Last updated: 2nd September 2014

Never again will you need to choose between an emergency trip to the loo and the now-legendary Game of Thrones 'Red Wedding' scene. Not when you can pause, rewind, replay and record your "can't miss" television shows on your personal video recorder (PVR).

Tape-free, disc-free and hassle free, we find out which PVR works best in the home. And help you find the best PVR or DVR for your needs.
