    Add in a 1TB internal HDD takes it over £389. Then add in Freesat's cut for their "branding" and you are likely into £400+. Unless there was significant volume allowing a price cut I reckon that would kill it in the UK market. Interesting to see what ARRIS come up with and at what price.

    You can buy it in Germany for £319.00. Although it's call 4-Tune it only appears to have two tuners. The Arris needs at least 3 - 4 to match the FVP-5000T recording capability.

    I might well be in the minority but I don't record enough TV to warrant more than 2 tuners. With BBC "watch from start" and all the OD players, plus streaming services, I'm more than catered for. I would settle for an ARRIS box which is well designed, a very good intuitive to use UI, reliable and bug-free. OH and don't launch it at £300 and then a year later cut the price substantially. In short, not the HDR1000S.

    It's also available here at £389.90 if you want the OPTIONAL internal or external hard-disk:

    Somehow I missed that!
    Interesting that the disk can be internal or external.
