Bloody marvelous, decided to treat myself to a Fortec Passion+, Maplins are out of stock and only have 'B' grade ones in stock, and I want a silver one, have had a look in the usual places, nothing.
anyone know any where? links appreciated, specially if you have used them

Hi H, let me know how you get on with your new toy.
have checked and called all the ones listed for essex and parts of suffolk and all those listed are B grade units (returned from customers) they can't say when any new stock will arrive, I'll wait if I have to
thanks mate

only got it on a fixed dish 4 astra 28*,got a 350g external HDD plugged in on the front usb slot.No problem recording HD or normal SD programs,only tried 4 a short time just 2 test it out,the files are saved as mpeg ts so no problem converting them 2 put on dvd if you want.
You will need a big drive if recording HD,i only had it recording 4 about 15mins & the file is 1.46gb.

HD is spot on steve,very good infact but only had BBC HD on,i found it easy enough 2 setup on astra but don`t know about setting up on a motorized setup.
Menu`s easy on the eye 2 go through,epg works ok.As i`ve said before very good box 4 the price,can`t fault it as yet.
