Following on from our announcement back in March that Metronic were developing a PVR for launch around mid-2009, we have now been informed that delays will force the launch date to be pushed back to the end of the year at the earliest.
Metronic, who had already done the initial ground work for the development of the PVR are disappointed that approval from Freesat has not happened, due to reasons undisclosed, but hope to revisit approval in around 4 months time.
In the meantime Humax remain the only manufacturer with a PVR on the market, with Panasonic expected to launch their Blu-Ray/DVD versions in June. No further news has come from Alba Group on their rumoured Freesat recorder; nor TechniSat who are expecting to launch a single tuner HD receiver towards the end of this month after their final DTG testing is completed.Enjoyed this post?
