I bought this item because of the digital switch over. The reason i choose this one in particular was the recording facility. I really liked the idea of being able to record on memory stick and then watching it on my Playstation, X-Box 360, MacBook or PC.
I would also like to mention that you will need a stick larger than 1GB. I tried to record Doctor Who (50Minutes long) and it would not record on a 1GB stick. I ended up recording it in a Play.com 8GB stick with no problems.
I would really recommend this Box for 29.99 to anybody
