    Spotted that too. Nice for the US anyway. Just highlights how further we are falling behind though.

    Interesting the comments that the FCC over there requires CableCard support so it will work on any cable system. I guess our cable standards here are closed, so there's be no chance of something similar here and just plugging in a suitable NTL/Telewest card?

    Just cable at present, but I guess they'll update other boxes to Series 3.

    Now if only Sky could be forced to open their format enough so you can just get a box and suitable card, and plug in a Sky card without having to ever use a Sky/Sky+ box...

    but it will never happen :(
