This item is a must have if you have a PS3! It is so much more than a freeview tuner. It adds full recording functionality to your PS3 and allows you to record one channel while watching another. I also read that it will be HD compliant for when terrestrial HD broadcasting starts in the future.
Season passes are set by scheduling a recording to repeat daily or weekly which is not as good as other PVRs or Tivo but for the price paid I can handle that.
The interface is excellent and much better than any freeview box I have used. And with the Bluetooth PS3 remote you can put the whole set up in a cupboard or round behind the plasma/LCD and still operate it happily.
Only thing is that if you have a 40/80GB hard drive you may need to budget for a new hard drive too as the more you record the more space gets used.
