This looks really good - exactly what I was looking when I built my HTPC on the Mac mini plus Windows Home Server.

I've contacted the Australian distributors to see if we can get a review unit and test with our New Zealand Freeview|HD here.

They are very cool and have had some good reviews in Australia.

I highly doubt that the DVB-T tuner would work, in part because Aussie uses 7MHz vs our 8MHz stepping and secondly they don't list any AAC-LATM audio support.

They look goopd and that 4130 was what i was after but according to the NZ importer http://www.iway.co.nz/products/28/TVIX.html

They still only have the old items that they had last year dispite saying that they would have the 4100 and later ones in February 2008..

i am thinking of importing one from the u s , from here  http://www.tvixbox.com/ i have been been contacted by there sales team r happy to ship one over however they did say they have got ATSC turners (http://www.paradiso-design.net/ATSC_DVB-T_ISDB-T_en.html)  in them which freeview HD  dosent support since they r for the u s market ...importing from Australia might have the dvb-t turner in them even then it still might not work  ...but  dont know about this importing thing never done  it before and looks risky....

Well, Genesys - like many other companies - didn't even bother replying to my query. So I wouldn't recommend buying from them.

In my view companies have the obligation to at least acknowledge they have received a request, if they have a "Contact Us" form in their site.

It appears to use the same Sigma processor as the PCH, or at least sibbling of, so it may also be troubled by a lack of HE-AAC support. Otherwise a good looking box. I would be surprised if it was troubled by our 8MHz channelling, 8MHz is by far the more common in Europe, and pretty much every tuner chipset/module supports 6-8MHz, only some of the very early tuner modules were limited.
