Not to be confused with TechniSat HDFV which is a good Freeview Receiver at £39.
I've had this for 4 months now, and the addition of the record functionality is great. The tuner works well and seems clear enough on my SD TV. I can't vouch for HD content, though it does allow me to watch BBC HD on my SD TV.
The File sharing option uses SMB (windows networking) and works fine with my Linux shares, even including username and password authentication on shares not set-up for guest access. Unfortunately though it only supports MPEG movies and does not support files over 4 GB, so most direct rips of films from DVD cannot be fully viewd from your NAS/Media server! - it lists the files, but gives an incorrect film length (usually not more than 30 minutes!) and will only play up to that point.
Having said that it's great for my ripped TV show episodes, which are invariably less than 4GB.
All in all, it's pretty good, though the 4GB file issue is a pain.
do they do a twin tuner?
Single tuner only - as detailed in the tech specs:

The Note 8.0 might have been a great tablet once, but now it looks outclassed and outdated
A classic example of style over substance. Given tweaks to the sound it could be far better, but that’s not to be for now
All style and little substance – the Pill isn’t talented enough to compete with more accomplished class rivals
