    looks nice, but I'm not a fan of any sort of subscription, and the tenner a month to the bbc and the £40 I spent on my freeview box is enough for me ;P

    Maybe it should read:

    "The website has a startling lack of Hi-Res Images, but it looks like this, unfortunately."

    Although design aside anything that can compete with the corporate monster that is BSkyb can't be bad in my books. Three tuners sounds great, personally I slways felt two arn't enough for Sky+. Just wondering what a 160GB capacity drive would do with HD content as far as storage hours go. I'm happy with my 40Gb original Sky+ box but can imagine it getting filled very quickly with HD content.

    Great advice I'm sure. I'm not a fan of paying for DVDs, music or programs for that matter.

    At a rough estimate of 20 Mbit/sec for HD content, 160 GB would give you just under 18 hours of storage, by my reckoning. Enough to timeshift a few shows, but you're not going to get much of an archive on there.

    My missus has sky+ and there is HD content/channels on her set but she has no HDTV to test and it costs more to get those channels

    Yeah mate, the HD channels may show up, but she'd need a special Sky+ HD box (not yet released) to be able to view them, as well as a HDTV.

    I would much rather go with a KiSS player for looks TBH.

    I know my DP1000 is the best looking thing on my shelf, well maybe apart from Natalie Portman on the cover of Garden state, but hardware wise it is tops!
