Maybe the chief engineer from the Freeview testing lab, who "coincidentially" happened to give the worst rating to the two boxes that weren't Freeview approved
I don't think that was the case. Their most highly rated terrestrial PVR was the Hyundai AH-3110 at $450, which they state is Not Freeview approved, the EPG only shows the current and next programme, and it has a single tuner. If this is the case, forget programming series links and advance programming.
They state it also has a satellite tuner and the 7 day EPG is "not easy to use"
Oh, and it needs an external hard disk, so of course it's standby power consumption is only 3.61W.
Would anyone here seriously actually buy such a machine instead of a TiVo?
