Andy

I have just got one of these-

http://www.argos.co.uk/static/Produc...2BFreeview.htm

Goodmans 80Gb PVR with freeview.
Doddle to use and will record around 40 hours.
Point and click timer and a real words telling you what you have recorded. No more searching through loads of tapes to find what you want etc.
Added bonus of being able to pause/rewind "live TV"

Does the biz for 120.

Andy, the one we have has Parental Controls - so you could set this up to prevent the missus & kids activating the unit.

It has a hard drive so you can erase what you want. Its just 10 x 4hr VHS tapes in 1 box with an index of what you have recorded.
Its a freeview recorder so the quality is better than you had with the VCR.
Instant access to all recordings, so no more searching through a load of un-named tapes/DVDs. How often do you want to keep a recording for ever?
You can pasword protect recordings, so the missus can not erase important things like Top Gear and the kids cannot watch any "late night" programs.
Another thing I like, is you can watch part of a program and when you want to watch the rest you press the red button and carry on from where you stopped.
Another bonus is a 2 min skip to save fast forwarding through the ads (even if they are some of the best TV around at the moment ).
