My review of the IceCrypt T2400 Freeview HD PVR has now been published on Register Hardware. Here I’m going to add a few more bits of information, which couldn’t all be fitted in the space I had over on RH.

There are a couple of key facts that… Read More FreeviewHD sales figures: Waiting for a PVR?
Two more reviews of Freeview HD recorders that I’ve done have been published this week on Register Hardware. The first (though I wrote it second) is of the Humax HDR-Fox T2 – the most capable of the Freeview HD units I’ve played with so far.
