Briantist. I was under the impression that the Humax Foxsat HDR which is a Freesat+ box WILL NOT record from the buffer? However I think a Sky+ box will record form the buffer. A critical difference don't you think so. Nigel asked this earlier. It was not clearly answered? I must say though I am a huge fan of the Foxsat. Thanks.

Upgrading from Sky+HD to Freesat+HD | Freesat

Right lads.
I am comparing the Foxsat HDR box with a Sky+HD box. As I said previously a Foxsat will not record from the buffer as a Sky+ box will.
I am fully aware that if you do not change channels on the Foxsat it holds onto the buffer so you can pause and rewind live tv. But say you start watching a show from the start and 15mins in you want to record the whole show from the start on to DISC you cannot on a Foxsat.
This is what I call recording the buffer.
If you just rewind to the start of the show and press record a warning pops up to tell you that Live tv will resume.
A critical difference I think to a Sky+ box which does handle this situation.
