    No sign of this thing launching yet. AV Land also have it listed (notice that they suggest an 80GB spec for the hard disc.) I've also heard a rumour of a digital video out (MPEG-2 over Firewire?) That would be very useful for archiving using a DVD recorder or PC but is probably too good to be true.

    AFAIK, the current Panasonic DTT STB's are fine. They tend not to upgrade them much (the original still has no support for the 7-day EPG) and there were some minor problems with the analogue sound quality but that was about it.

    Personally, I'm hopeful for a launch this side of Christmas. Fingers crossed.

    P.S. More speculation is available in this Digital Spy thread that includes a quote from a Panasonic brochure on page 4.

    AFAIK it is not available anywhere see http://www.pvruk.co.uk/products.cfm
    I have just e-mailed Panny UK noting that retailers have different specs for the TUCTH100 (some say 40 some 80 gigs) and asking when information will be available on their own site. Also asked when it will be available.
    If I find out anything new will post it here.
