UPDATE 10.41am Sogecable’s Spanish DTH platform Digital+ is to launch a digital video recorder. Known as iPlus, the quad-tuner set-top box features twin satellite and DTT tuners and a 160GB hard drive that equates to around 80 hours of stored programming.
iPlus will use the NDS MediaHighway middleware and will be integrated with the existing electronic programme guide and remote control. The regular DVR functionality, such as Pause, Rewind and Series Link is also included.
In addition to being ready for the forthcoming Spanish HD services, the box also contains a separate DTT tuner.
