MikeB: Hi there.
My main TV is a four years old Flat Screen Samsung, with Built in HD Freeview.
I actually use two Humax Freesat receivers both connected to the TV via separate HDMI: A Foxsat sockets; a Foxsat-HDMR, with 320gb hard drive, and a new receiver with 500gb hard drive and "Freetime", Humax/Freesat's on demand EPG.
In some ways I prefer the older Foxsat, because it more easily allows the viewing & storing of the 300+ non-Freesat other channels (adult, and at the moment the "Talking Pictures" vintage film channel)
There is very little on Freeview, the terrestrial service, that isn't on Freesat, so I don't it much.
Basically, if you've a Sky satellite dish, keep your aerial plugged in for Freeview, and plug a Freesat DVR in the Sky satellite connection.

**And I can watch Freeview while recording to Freesat HDD, both of the receivers has twin tuners, which have two LNB inputs from the Satellite dish.
Or watch one satellite channel while recording another,

**Sorry about the missing words in the last two posts;
the sentence wrapping is odd, and doesn't suit my Tablet.
