Having just got my new Pioneer HDE plasma I have been a bit presumptious and asked Pioneer if they plan to develop and offer a digital tuner upgrade for the media box (either as a same box upgrade or a replacement box). Regretfully I have received the response below. This seems a short sighted decision by pioneer as I feel sure that in a few years many HDE owners may be interested in such an upgrade (am I wrong? - I know I would prefer just one box rather than an additional Freeview box). If anyone feels the same maybe you could drop a mail to Pioneer (email@example.com) asking the same question.
