Recommend a Freeview Recorder for my sister...

She currently has my old 9200T, but apparently she now wants an upgrade (I dunno why, I haven't asked).
I use a HDR-T2, which has been going well for 5 years or so. Shame they don't do 'em any more.

Anyway, my sister wants a new box. She doesn't have internet, nor is she likely to, so I don't see the point in getting her into FVP.

This will leave just the 1800 and 2000 (only real difference is HDD size).. Humax still sell them directly, and I assume they still cope with the pressures of modern freeview protocols etc. A good choice? I'd probably get her (yes, it's nearly xmas and I'm that generous) a refurb 1800 as they're only £80, and she's by herself so has no need for an extra 180GB in my opinion...

I can vouch for the following, I have two and they work perfectly, not a single power recycle needed, no purple screen when recording, plus media server and remote recording come as standard.
