I'm looking at moving to Telstra from Optus internet/Fetch TV and looking at Telstra TV/broadband bundle but seems like the gap is how to record TV. Has anyone got any suggestions on what would be the best stand alone recording device to utilise alongside Telstra TV so we can record shows without having to go down the Foxtel route? And whether this could integrate into the Telstra TV remote so effectively one system that does it all?

The Telstra-TV, unlike the Telstra T-Box (which has been discontinued) doesn't recieve TV signals, so it cannot record anything. It is purely a streaming device, only for Internet delivered content such as STAN Netflix and Presto.
Your best option would to be to buy a TEAC set-top box or one of the commercially available FTA set-top boxes.
Telstra no longer has a solution that competes with Fetch-TV in that space.
I have a Samsung BluRay PVR which I use to watch/record TV, catchup services, Netflix...
Completely eliminates the need for Telstra TV as the PVR does everything the Telstra TV unit can do plus a whole lot more.
Also means I only need one remote.
G'day @Wanglese, mines a couple of years old now, the BD-H6500A, but the current model is the BD-H8500A.
Never skipped a beat since I bought it. Has built-in Wifi, but I have mine connected by CAT6 cable.
Thanks. I'm off to The Goodguys this week to check one out. Online - the specs are good.
