However, who wants to ruin their carefully crafted entertainment nook with an unsightly box ill-matched to their current d├ęcor? This tiny box from TVonics is sold on the fact that it can be easily hidden behind a TV with the only thing betraying its existence being a small IR receiver for the remote control. … to review

TVonics DTR-HV250 DVR Register Hardware 1/2010 - The British Freeview box manufacturer TVonics seems to have ignored the allure of HDTV or satellite content, and looks to be quite content with the production of quality-built, user-friendly Freeview and Freeview+ products.
