    Oooh

    News I have been wating for. I will have to give this a go when I get home tonight.

    I wonder how the Mrs will feel about ethernet cables streached across the living room floor?

    It worked, but not that great. The UI was rather slow and clunky. Picture quality was about the same as a VHS recording, definitely less than normal standard def broadcast TV, but not that bad. OK from the sofa, but not a good idea to stand to close to the set.

    The show I was watching was due to finish at about quarter past nine. At nine PM I discovered that you can't record two shows while watching a third via the iPlayer (you can from a hard disc recording).

    My cable was quite a trip hazard, but I will be buying a longer one so I scan string it up neatly.
