    Smaller, quieter and faster, the new BT YouView+ box is a big improvement over the old one and still the same massive bargain

    YouView is brilliant and the BT Vision app adds loads of extra premium on-demand content. It's hard to argue with the amazing value, too

    A competent multi-tuner PVR with the bonus of DLNA media streaming, but its limited format support and basic interface count against it

    HDR-FOX T2
    300

    Packed with features, but still an expensive purchase considering the limited number of HD broadcasts. However, this is the best Freeview HD PVR around, and also has iPlayer built-in.

    Technisat’s HDFV has some nice features including basic PVR capabilities, but poor media playback support lets it down while i-CANN’s Easy HD 2851T is cheaper and has a built-in BBC iPlayer client.

    Great HD quality, but with few other frills currently, the RTI90-320 is an expensive way to get three free HD channels. However, if you must have Freeview HD immediately, it's not a bad choice.
