    For that price I'd want:

    * Dual-tuner or at least single DVB-T2
    * Multicast support (not that home networks really support it)
    * Access to the full transport stream
    * Oh and of course for MythTV to support it, which I can't see being a problem provided there's nothing proprietary in how it transports the video stream over the network.

    20quid dual tuner card for each PC, job done.

    Agreed, this is a waste!

    Especially as all you really have to do is take the data coming out of the decoder and spit it out onto the network. If you use the right tuners they'll even hardware demux for you, so I'm pretty sure a cheap-ish FPGA could get the job done.

    Still I'd be interested to see what they've got inside there.

    Wow at first i was thinking 'genius' but you could probably build a atom system which does the function of this box and a lot more for around the same if not cheaper.

    Good idea, but prohibitively expensive.

    There cant be alot of cutting edge hardware in there to justify that price - for £229 I could build an entire HTPC!

    Ouch at the price tag - that should be sub £100 really.

    Not that it needs someone else to say it, but £229? really?

    divide by 3 at least in my view before it becomes vaguely sensible.
