    Looks like the only major features are streaming from a PC? Otherwise I wouldn't go near anything like this if it doesn't have a freeview tuner.

    it also has a component input....(never seen before on UK spec kit.....)and the web interface recorder looks ideal for those who miss things being away from home or delayed. I agree a FV tuner and a DVD-R drive would make it the top dog..........cross this with an inverto and an E65 and it would be rocking

    It is not clear whether it includes a tuner or not, on the scan site it says it does, but on the Kiss description it doesn't mention it. Also there is no mention that it could handle twin tuners to enable you to watch one channel and record another. It does look like a nice piece of kit for people who don't like/want or a pc, but for that price I still think a HTPC would be better!

    Still no Digital output though. Can't quite get my head round the fact you can record digital transmissions digitally but still have to view them through analogue unless you've got a HTPC.

    With the weather forecast & shoutcast it Looks and does very similar things to the Xbox Media Centre program. Just a shame the Xbox is such a pig to setup as a PVR.

    Wonder what they will charge for this Kiss?
