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:

This is a top-notch surround package for the money. It’s a worthy alternative to the award-winning KEF R100 5.1
A great amp with some notable musical skills, but it loses a star compared with its better-performing, better-specified rivals
Another admirable and attractive soundbar from LG, pipped to that fifth star by fierce competition
