Thomson Freeview PVR still on hold



Consumer electronics manufacturer Thomson has revealed that its long-awaited PVR - the DHD4000 - is "unfortunately still in development" - and is unable to confirm a launch-date for it. This latest announcement contrasts with the statement in the company's March/April newsletter that the Freeview/Hard drive combi device would appear "soon".

Thomson also says that its DVD/Freeview combi, the DVT1100, will cease production in June. Meanwhile, a twin-tuner device that was originally scheduled for launch in autumn 2003, the DTI2000, also appears to be no longer on the UK roadmap - although it is currently available for sale in Sweden.
