I reckon this will go under £100 on Friday. Was £99.99 in October and £92.99 in July.

Decent price anyway at £104.98
Literally read the post title and looked at the image and had no idea what this was...!
I still don't know what it is but it looks good!
I got one on a previous deal but way too glitchy for me. I sent it back.
I've got one of these.

Not glitchy at all for me.

Only the abomination that is Plex introduces problems if you make the mistake of using the Plex Pass for your DVR needs, it can't even perform the most basic tasks, like time shifting an in progress recording, properly!

Used as a standalone, and from what I gather, another better PVR provider then it works perfectly for me.
These are great pieces of kit. Bought one this time last year, it's been liberating getting rid of subscription TV. Using tvheadend as a backend with various frontends on numerous devices. tvheadend is lightweight and I have run it on a router/raspberry pi 3/4. Takes a while to configure correctly, but it's been worthwhile. The HDHR works well out of the box with the Nvidia shield.

My thinking too, I want one but knowing it went to £93 I definitely want it £95 or less, I'm in no hurry at the moment.

Well I consider myself vaguely computer literate but you’ve lost me there mate!
Channels app goes really nicely with this box

It's a TV tuner, you plug an aerial or two in then it delivers TV to devices over your home network so you'd use an app on a smart TV to see content streamed from the box.
" With our free App download on Android / Windows 10 / Mac - you get Live TV with 24 hours of programme guide, show posters, and brief synopsis of each show. Upgrade to our Annual DVR Service - now you have 14 full days of programme guide"

What a joke! To pay annually for 2-week EPG? That's NO from me. I hate useless subscriptions.
I wish Amazon would release the Fire TV Recast PVR in the UK - only available in the USA sadly

It all depends on what devices you have or would plan to use. The HDHR box will distribute Freeview over your home network. I wouldn't use their software as there are many free alternatives, although it is plug and play. I already had a server/Nas on my network and found tvheadend the best option, not necessarily the easiest.
I’ve had the dual channel one for about 3 years now and it works great. You plug in a tv aerial in the back (my HDHomeRun is in the loft) and boom I can open up the app from all my devices and watch live tv from anywhere in the house over WiFi.

Does tvheadend give you free DVR functionality (including 7-day EPG)?

Yes, it's an open source project. It's highly configurable, but comes with a reasonably steep learning curve. Remember it's a backend so you would generally setup a server, then use a frontend such as Kodi with its PVR functionality as the client.
These are great devices if you want a networked Freeview tuner. I have the 2 Tuner version and it works great with just about every device/computer I have for watching live TV. Freeview HD on my Shield TV box looks just as good as the same channel viewed directly through the TVs own tuner, and I can watch on any of my media boxes or computers around the house.

One thing to watch out for - although it works with AndroidTVs 'Live Channels' feature, for some reason the Live Channels app will hold onto the tuners in the box for quite a while, meaning if you start flicking through channels you get a weird 'signal too weak' message after you flick through a few channels. This is nothing to do with signal strength, it's just that the app is still holding on to the tuners for the old channels. You are best to use the HDHomerun app that is made by Silicondust for the box (free).

Next step will be to set up a suitable DVR on my home server
