Think you'll find it's because the new STARVIEW-PVR is available from Monday in the UK.

Normal Starviews have been brought down to a realistic price for equipment made in Korea/China.

BTW. Starview PVR will be around £220. Bit much I think!!

I think there is a price war on ebay, the two main companies which sell these are starting to under cut each other.

I think it comes with a 160GB hdd initially but it supports upto 300GB.

You can record Two Channels and watch another as well.

People want to be able to have more control over a box, like Dreamboxes and Dboxes. Starview are built to do one thing and one thing only, where someothers are able to do alot more and are easy upgradable i.e images.

I would put it like this, if you have a starvies and not seen anything else, then you will be happy as it does what it says on the box (free TV)lol but when you have a dreambox and know what it is capable of then a starview look like a nissan micra compared to a BMW M3 lol.

thats the best way i can describe it

"You cant be rich untill you have seen all the riches in the world"
"One mans junk is another mans treasure"

sorry im woffling now i know. lol

Over and out
