Does it support TAPs?

Nope; this is just an STB, albeit one with the potential to record to external media, or playback from it.

It looks interesting. Did you check the caps? Wink

Also, I know it's only theoretical at the moment, but the potential for recording to external drives intrigues me. Does this include HD material, and would they then be accessible by editing software? I suspect however that you are unable to give answers yet on the hypothetical file type.

Does it have an ethernet connector, which could be used for playing back from networked storage?

CPC have it in their latest Highlights flyer at 135 (+vat), as well as lots of other Icecrypt Freeview and satellite receivers and accessories.

Order code is AV1984206 but it is not yet recognised on the CPC website.

It says that CPC are the main authorised agent for Icecrypt products.

I've commented on the blog about that - essentially I think it's "a main..." rather than "the main..." in much the same way as a garage may be a "main dealer"

Annoyingly, the courier didn't arrive today, though he should have done. Hopefully tomorrow....

So near, and yet so far. For want of two transposed numbers in the address (and I've yet to find out if it was the courier or the person who wrote the label), the box was refused by "Miss Anna" some twenty doors along the street.

Grrr. Still, at least she didn't keep it.

Is Miss Anna offering services of the night your other occupation? Laughing

Did the courier not have your phone number to use for just such an eventuality?

I presume they just went to the address they thought it was, got told the package wasn't wanted, and couldn't be bothered to do anything else.

Turned up today (same charming delivery man who got clamped outside my flat a few weeks ago).

Photos and screens on the blog, for those who are curious about it.

Nice bit of design with the USB flap fouling the channel buttons on the front panel.
