PVR and DVR reviews


We test six PVRs and DVRs, as well as a couple of TVs that can act as PVRs.

Last updated: 13th July 2015

Never again will you need to choose between an emergency trip to the loo and the bloody climax of a Game of Thrones season finale – not when you can pause, rewind, replay and record your 'can't miss' television shows on your personal video recorder (PVR – also known as a DVR, with the D standing for 'digital').

Tape-free, disc-free and hassle free, we find out which PVR works best in the home. We also look at a couple of the latest TVs we have tested recently, to see how well they perform as a PVR.

Want CHOICE's advice on what to look for, based on our years of experience testing digital goods? See our PVR buying guide for everything you need to know before you hit the shops.
