I really need to upgrade my parents older satBox-ultra S7090PVR (unless if it gets a firmware upgrade which will be excellent).

The S7090PVR has no HbbTV certification (It's also discontinued) so the only way to get this is a product upgrade.

Thanks for the update! I really appreciate your notifications on Geekzone. Otherwise I would miss out on a lot of info. The S8200 is a fully featured device, will there be a minimal feature version coming? Ie; maybe just supporting the usual satellite features and adding only on demand access or similar lowered feature set?

Obviously there are other ways to do this but keeping it all in one box is a feature in some cases : ).

We are always looking at ways to deliver products for all needs and the uptake of streaming media is in a trend at the moment, I'll pass this through to the team.
