Retiring the VCR

I am now the proud owner of a Humax YouView PVR; I got last year's model at a discount. No more fluffing around with VHS tapes for me. I think I was the last person in the country still using them.

It's about time my telly had the chance to display an HD picture (480p from the Wii doesn't count). And yes, it looks markedly better than standard-def Freeview, even on my small-by-today's-standards 26" screen.

The ability to pause any TV show is going to be really useful when I'm trying to make tea during the adverts, but the show comes back on sooner than I expected.
