So what do you think of the YouView box Pete?

I find I can pick them up regularly on Gumtree and car boots for next to nothing and they work quite well once you get used to the interface. I have one in the bedroom set to record intellectual stuff from BBC4 and O/U during the night, makes interesting viewing if you suffer from insomnia and need something to get you off to sleep.
I've been buying them mainly for the hard drives recently, if you can pick one up for a tenner with a 500gb 2.5" hard drive in them it's a bargain and very useful for replacing HDs in laptops.
I've never actually used one in the van during a trip but they work fine for playback without a data connection so should be ideal for what you want.

Help someone out when they're in trouble and they'll remember you when they're in trouble again.
