For various reasons (mostly as I'm fed up with being subjected to Eastenders at 10pm on BBC3), I'm contemplating a Freesat+ box.
The obvious choice is either a Humax Foxsat HDR or a Samsung SMT7800, both 5 star products.
The less obvious choice is this: http://www.amazon.co.uk/EchoStar-HDS-600RS-SlingLoaded-Anywhere-recorder/dp/B004S9OT92/ref=sr_1_8?ie=UTF8&qid=1330528008&sr=8-8
Now, I've read the review of another slingbox product here but it seemed to be poorly rated (no hdmi etc), but that doesn't seem to be an issue here.
Has the WHF team seen this product in action (or has anyone else). How does it compare on PQ as against the normal (non Harddrive) Humax HD box?
The "sling" function is highly unlikely to get much use (perhaps while on holiday, so it's a "nice to have"). What's the EPG like also?
any input/indepth comments welcome!
