TV with PVR capability

I’m planning to replace our ageing Panny 32” LCD. One feature I really want is a TV – doesn’t matter whether plasma or LCD – that allows you to hook up a high capacity USB disk and use it as a PVR. In other words, the TV itself has a PVR capability but without an internal hard drive. I know they’re about – but I’m struggling to find any. Can someone point me in some right directions?

The reason, by the way, is that right now, we have an external PVR, but we’re sick of messing with two remotes.

Thanks ßeta. Those look a little more than I wanted to pay... :-( Anyone aware of anything around the 37"/£500 mark?

I could name several, however there not in the £500 mark.

Thanks ßeta. It looks like it may be a functionality that's only included in top spec/large screen models, then. I may have to continue with what I've got at present.

Then buy a universal remote. You can program them to replace most remotes.
