    Most Western Digital HDDs are not supported. ??

    ouch. They're pretty common - I wonder what else isn't supported.

    Still, for the money I'm sure plenty of people will roll the dice.

    Mite be a silly question, but does this also tune to analogue channels?

  •  

    I've been using this for a while, the channel changing speed and the epg speed is very good (comparing with my samsung series 5 LCD). The PVR works fine too. I'm happy with it.

    Not much of a deal. I thought it was $39 delivered, but I'm not sure so won't give it a neg.

    I have one, bought for the ridiculously cheap price of $9 delivered during the $30-off-everything fiasco. It works, but you get what you pay for (or in this case, what Kogan paid for!). It has the worst interface known to mankind and a terrible remote. I needed a Y-cable to give my portable HDD enough power because the USB on this doesn't cut it. I'd never use it as a primary tuner or PVR. I only use it to record HD channels because my main PVR only receives SD. Since I hardly ever need to watch or record something on HD, this thing is perfect for the secondary role.

    Get a Dick Smith one for $39 and you will not have any hassles returning it if you have problems. Aldi has one too but supply is not guaranteed. With DSE, they can replace it with what is currently on the shelves.

    Considering the good guys currently have GVA HD STB + PVR for $19 and can be picked up in store.
