High Definition Freesat receivers are available along with PVR (personal video recorder) versions which allow you to record one channel whilst watching another. Recordings are stored on a hard-drive on the PVR ready for playback at a convenient time. 

The first 2 receivers detailed below are high-definition but non-recording receivers. The 3rd is Freesat+ which allows you to record one channel whilst watching another. You can even record 2 channels at the same time and watch something you have already recorded! Bear in mind though that for Freesat+ you will need 2 cables from your satellite dish.
