As mentioned in Decembers Tone magazine, Sky look set to go with their PVR. Comes with:
-160Gb HDD ( 80 Hours of recording )
-2 Scart connectors
-Audio out
-Digital Audio out
-Optical Audio out
-S-Video out
-Video out
-2 RF out
-USB Connector
-RS-232 connector
-RF In
-2 Dish IN
Uses sky's EPG for guide data, can record two channels at once, whilst watching pre-recorded shows. All looks very NICE. I'm sure the price will be equally NICE.

Anyone seen any more on this, in particular who make the box, from the article, and the picture it's devoid of any sort of markings indicating who makes it.
