...or is it PC only. Also are software/firmware updates going to be automatically updated over the air?

Thanks

No, yes.

Check out the FAQ for information about the updates:

Thanks Nigel.

Any possibility of Mac support in the future?

It's not something I've had the opportunity to ask Topfield/Turbosat about.

What I can point out though is that, although the Toppy is well supported on the Mac, none of that support is official Topfield stuff - it's all done through third party utilities, like MPEG Streamclip.

So I suspect it's a question of someone else coding a firmware updater, if they can persuade Topfield to give them the specs.

Nigel.

Thanks. Other than the Mac support would you recommend a Toppy over the other PVRs currently available? I know it's a broad question, my main criteria are reliability and ease of use.
