Like all major companies, they suffer from corporate arrogance and believe that their bit of equipment will take pride of place in the room, hence the controls on the top, unreachable if the unit is stuck in a nit or rack. :)

Gif borrowed from PDF. ;)

Doesnt ay anything about HD output - I think this one is the design for the new standard digibox - and all manufacturers have to use it.

Very organic-looking. More like something you might put in the oven for Sunday lunch. Leg of lamb anyone?

ok, it's smaller, hardly surprising!

Otherwise, any functional difference?

It will be no good in my household, as it is I had to get an extra thin Sony to fit in my unit, wouldn't consider one of those as it wouldn't fit, what am I going to do? certainly not alter my fireplace.. only option..... do without Sky when my Sony turns up its toes. Looks like they had the Mclaren rear wing designer visiting or doing some moonlighting what a load of doodoo
