    The topField 5800 really looks neat, but to reduce number of boxes in my stack I wish they fired in a cheap DVD player as well.

    Any others have this facility ?

    I know DVD players are Pennies, but wish I had less boxes :(

    I suppose you could replace each of your boxes with a smaller one - that's what I am slowly doing.

    Anyone know the smallest
    a) freeview box
    b) DVD player or recorder
    c) sky box
    d) VCR (for SWMBO)
    e) good surround sound amp?

    I suppose you could replace a VCR and DVD player with a combo unit.

    If you get a topfield then you've got freeview and a recorder in one so you can get rid of the vid.

    RE: Fewer boxes...

    1) Ditch Sky!

    2) Get a DVD recorder... Convince SWMBO that DVD Recordable is the future...

    Ah! And there my plan falls flat...

    SWMBO...

    AKA The Command Module...

    AKA Mission Control...

    :D I had never seen SWMBO before, but (worryingly) instinctively knew what it meant!
