We are currently using a Toppy 5800 with a Panasonic Viera TX32LZD80 to receive and record freeview via the aerial.

We are about to move to France and the only way we will be able to receive UK TV is via a satellite decoder and dish tuned to the Astra 2D satellite.

Is there any way to connect the Toppy to the satellite box so that we can use its recording facilities, or do we need to ditch the Toppy and buy a satellite box with recording capability?

If the latter, what would users recommend as the best setup?

In common with all Freeview recorders, the Toppy will ONLY record from its own Freeview signal, not from an external satellite.

Looks like visit required to a good branch of Darty or Fnac Wink
