      Is the YouView content worth an extra £50 over the price of the Fox T2 500?

      I would have expected a 1TB option too, maybe that's coming.

      1 TB option will be available, but not at launch obviously.

      Voted No.

      Yes, at Only £50 more I would class it as an absolute Bargain.

      I voted YES but ONLY if the YV box had exactly the same PVR facilities as the FOX T2.

      You and others might be a tad disappointed then.

      All will become clear soon

      Personally I very rarely use vod catch up services. In the rare event that I do, there is now so many sources that it wouldn't be worth it.

      For instance in my setup.

      Laptop connected by hdmi to AV system
      Foxsat-hdr
      Virgin SD Box
      HD FOX T2
      PS3
      Smart TV.

      I'm abstaining on this one.

      I'm unlikely to buy an HD recorder personally in the near future but do advise others on prospective purchases.

      I have all the catchup options I need between my connected Bravia TV, Blu-ray player and my VM Tivo and V+ box, not to mention various sizes and OS's of computers/smartphones.

      I think this is not easy question - YouView has a lot of unrealised potential that can added to this stb by YouView directly (as I understand things) - do you rate now or consider the potential for apps etc and more.
