Given that Freesat PVRs look to be some way away yet I've started looking at FTA PVRs instead. The Topfield TF77x0HDPVR model looks like it will do for me, but I can't seem to find out what the differences are between the TF7700HDPVR and the TF7710HDPVR. Is it just things like MP3 playback from external sources, for example?

TIA

if you look at-www.topfield.co.kr/eng/product/list.asp?lang=2&cateL=HD&cateM=PVR&img_title=title_hdstb&leftmenu=left_product it says 7700 is for aussies but I know it's available in Europe. Is the HD the same size? my 7710 is only 250gb I see 750 for an adv for the 7700.

The 7700 sure is available in Europe, it's the default in germany for example.
The European web-site of _http://www.topfield-europe.com/de/01_produkte/01_01_20_tf7700hdpvr.php"]Topfield mentions the 7700 as the German verions and the 7710 as the Swiss/BeNeLux version.

The only difference I've come across so far is support. A Dutch official importer describes it as:
- the 7700 is the international version and you're on your own if your subscriptions do not work
- the 7710 is the local version BeNeLux version for which we can give support

And indeed I've seen the description on the area for the 7710 differ depending on who gives the info, so I guess that just as the 7700 has different region codes (i.e. the 3 digit number that is shown at startup, e.g. 232 for the 'german' one), the 7710 has the equivalent.

Rumor has it that there was a 'hardware fix' coming at one time for the 7710 for CanalDigital support and not for the 7700, but nobody's ever seen any product recall or was able to detail what it was all about.
