I will echo an earlier comment, if it can't keep time then how can it time record :(
No new firmware yet but date I was given at time of purchase was 16 :p
"Freeview HD Receiver PVR"
I did not get my free "High Gain Antenna" either but I am guessing he forgot to change auction images, as text did not mention the antenna.
He told us the 15th of Jan on the 2nd. You got the 16th of Jan on the 5th. Between then and a few days ago his website was changed to before Feb 09 http://www.satlinknz.co.nz/extra_terrestrial.html (bottom of the page)
Welcome to our world, and don't hold your breath.
Even that may be overselling - the website actually says "hopeful (sic) by Feb09". Lots of "hopeful" may indeed be required, going by the numerous earlier dates not being met...
