  1. I just took delivery of Strong's latest model. Very nifty. Twin HD tuners.
    Will actually record 3 channels (provided 2 are linked eg: channel 2 +
    Channel 22) on an internal 500GB hard drive. Accepts a 1TB via a rear panel,
    or front panel USB port. Network connection and all the usual stuff. Very
    nice, readable alpha-numeric display. A fabulous, very non-Chinese-y remote
    control. Appears to be designed by humans for humans. 15 second boot time.

    2 downsides (so far):

    * Does not accept external A/V inputs.
    * In their attempt to lower standby power consumption to 0.67 Watts
    (measured), the antenna passthough doesn't work when the unit is switched

    Highly recommended.

  2. How much would one of those set me back Trevor?

    I am looking at replacing my problem child SRT5390 one day....

  3. **The RRP is $699.00, but no one pays that. Email me and we'll do a deal.
