Have you got your eye on any one in particular? The Xtrend ET8000 looks good to me - up to three tuners and reasonably priced, compared to other brands. Mind you, I suppose it depends what you want to do with it - the more expensive ET10000 apparently can do transcoding in hardware, allowing you to stream your recordings over the Internet. For me, an ET8000 with two DVB/T/T2/C and one DVB/S tuners at £195 from World of Satellite looks pretty good. You have to add a hard drive to that, but it takes both 3.5 and 2.5 inch discs so factor in 40 quid for a 1TB from Amazon.I am tempted to try one of these STB's.
I was alerted by someone over at myhumax.org who had tried an FVP-5000T and had various problems with it, returned it and bought one of the later Manhattans; seems to be very pleased with it.Older models than what appears to be on that site now (Plaza I think) seemed to be very crash prone. I replaced them with HD Fox instead. No more crashes!
