It looks like things are starting to move on the PVR with TelstraClear. Planned for Feb 2010 and a set of testers wanted for this year. more information http://www.telstraclear.co.nz/sub-sites/homemedia/index.htm
I have signed up for the testing.
Behodar: You will most likely need TCL's TV service.
Internet is my backyard...
Please read the Geekzone's FUG
chiefie: This is promising, so perhaps this time round (with TelstraClear) Now's Good??
jpollock: You still need tuners on the cable network. :) They've just DVB-C(able) instead of DVB-T(errestrial) or sky's DVB-S(attelite).
Although, the 3 tuners are an indication that it isn't a network PVR, they wouldn't need more than one tuner if it was.
