    Thomson are bringing out a twin digital receiver with HD in September.

    They (and Digital Spy Forum) put me off too!

    Settled for a Thomson DTI1000 DTVA instead.

    I already posted this on the Netgem PVR thread, but in case you didn't see it...

    These are the Fusion machines:

    http://www.idtv.co.uk/_images/FDTR101.JPG

    The two above are the same except cosmetically, and the expected RRP is £250.

    If you hanker after an easy-to-archive system, this one looks tasty for £350:

    Interestingly, Fusion have officially rented some of the digital bandwidth, which they intend to use for a 7-day EPG - making the PVR functionality MUCH more useful.

    Also, Humax announced a twin-tuner PVR recently as well, with upgradeable HDD:

    All are supposedly due for release here in October - I wouldn't hold my breath, but I'm certainly going to break my early-adopter status and hold out for them, as they seem SO much more functional than the Pace twin.

    I think Samsung are also about to release one.
    This timeline shows a rough overview:
