gcam032: Thanks! I'm sure we'd all be keen to hear about how the trial box goes.
Just another question. I don't actually have a HD tv, just a CRT tv. The reason I want a Freeview-HD box is to future proof because I know that a TV upgrade is on the horizon. I'm making the assumption that a HD set-top box can punch outut to my tv in nonHD format, correct? i.e. it is possible to receive HD terrestrial and watch on a non-HD tv
If you haven't got a HD TV don't bother at present. Wait for the price to come down and functionalty to go up. I don't see much price movement until after the Olympics..
