    Hi All,

    I'm looking for the ultimate space saving box which combines all
    of the above, my wishlist for this mythical box is:

    Must have built in 5.1 Amp
    Must have MP3/MP4 support
    Must have built in HDD at least 160GB
    Must have HDD out port (Ethernet/USB)
    Must have Multi-Region Support
    Must have DVD Recording
    Must have Dual Freeview Tuners (or one would be nice)
    Nice to have EPG Download
    Nice to have Web/Digital/AM/FM Radio
    Nice to have Hi-Def Output
    Nice to have Wireless (802.11b/g)

    The closest I've come is all of the above except freeview
    tuners - but that's a box that's not out until early next
    year - the Kiss DP-688 and I've heard varying reports
    about them.

    Anyone got any other suggestions?

    Cheers,

    Martin

    Well, unless Kiss eventually come up with anything that does it all, your only choice will be a media centre PC. You can guarantee that if anyone does come up with all of that in one box the quality will be pretty poor - all those electrical signals in a confined space is going to mean signal pollution somewhere.

    Media centre PCs are great if you don't mind the heat, the noise and the expense.

    Yeah, I think I may have to settle for a DVD/HDD PVR
    with freeview and amp - there are lots of DVD+PVRs
    and a few freeview+amps out there - must be both soon....

    Cheers

    Seems like the cloest is the reelbox - just wait for someone
    to get one now and see if it's not vapourware...
