This is something that was mentioned to us in an informal chat with a mid-level Pace employee, so don’t take it as confirm, but its beleived that Pace are in-line to manufacturer Freesat boxes, after a recent requested downturn in Sky Digibox manufacture. We have no official confirmation (yet!), nor do we know if an agreement has been signed, but it certainly looks promising.

When quizing our contact further, hints at a PVR digital box being the priority were mentioned, as well as a HD none PVR and even suggestions of a Freesat enabled Pace Multiroom server, similar to this one, PACE Multiroom.

With Humax’ PVR still some months away (confirmed as being late 2008 / early 2009), and Alba Group giving no indication on availability of their PVR model, just maybe we will see Pace capitalising on these delays and launching a model earlier. We’ll keep you posted.

Thanks for that info.

Seems really strange to me that FreeSAT have launched the service without a decent PVR in sight ?!
There must be a race on to produce the first one. Lets just hope its a good un.
