I have a specific requirement for an STB. It must support Freeview Plus, and it must be able to access all the provided catch-up content of all FTA channels. It must have the option of output via red-yellow-white connectors (is that 'composite'?). I would prefer the capacity to record either on internal disk or an external device via USB, but this is not essential. I will not accept downloaded catch-up content in which the audio plays out-of-sync. So if I watch a streaming catch-up program on my computer (over my cable internet connection) in which the audio is in sync, I expect the STB to deliver the same program with the same quality. I have already returned an STB which did not meet this requirement. Is there ANYBODY who can tell me that they have an STB which meets these requirements?
Checkout the latest from Dish network, sure it's paytv but compared to the paltry offerings we get here it's pretty neat.Dish now have their Hopper and Joeys, full pvr and media distribution around the home. it's got some nice features like the fact you can pause what you're watching in the lounge room and start playing it from where you left off in the bedroom, a built in remote finder, a primetime capture where it captures all the main channels in primetime...with a couple of terabyte in the box I suppose they can afford to do that
