    Come on then, who's going to be the first to get one of these units into the UK and give it a proper testing? :)

    I am having that volume fluctuation that you mentioned... it is very noticeable on ABC1 e.g. when watching the news. Does anybody know what causes this and what the cure is?

    He also revealed the Tivo digital recording device brought to Australia by the Seven Network had been a surprise hit.

    Seven launched Tivo as a direct free-to-air counter to Foxtel's IQ device and gave Harvey Norman exclusive rights to sell the product for the first six weeks.

    Seven is supporting the Tivo with ads in high rotation during the Olympics.

    "We have sold more than three times what I would have expected -- and again, I think the Olympics have been a factor.

    "I didn't think Tivo would be a big seller. Sometimes you just never know."

    More to the point, what's holding TiVo back from bringing this box to the UK market? Come on TiVo!

    Ditch the customer service deal with Sky, team up with BBC/ITV/Freeview instead! Or C4 - ooh, there's a thought...

    If TiVo were to announce a Freeview branded version of this box coming to the UK, I'd ditch Sky+ without second thoughts.

    The UK market is prime for TiVo now. Sky+ has had its own way for too long, even Virgin had to rebrand their box as V+ and Freeview Playback has become Freeview+ - come to think of it, didn't Tiscali change the HomeChoice box name to Tiscali+?

    Freeview+ too many different boxes, horrible remote controls.

    TiVo, one box, one awesome remote control.

    Help us TiVo, you're our only hope...
