The box is a Freeview Play device (uses a terrestrial aerial) and is a replacement for the FVP-4000T boxes. It's not a satellite box. Freesat have announced a 3rd generation Freesat box is planned for 2018. No other details but no prizes for guessing who might be making it.Oooh, that looks tempting. I like the idea of the extra tuner support. That said, it doesn't sound like that this is provided by an extra LNB connection. Being able to connect to a Humax Smart Hub is another plus point for me too. My only worry is the early adopter pain that Humax puts its customers through when they release new kit. Still, a positive endorsement for Freesat.
@Mark: will you be reviewing the new box when it surfaces?
