Hi all -

My research on this so far, has produced the below item from Argos, which looks 
pretty much what I'm after, but I'm wondering about it's accessibility, so 
anybody seen one or using one? any body got any comments on Sagem as a brand?

Also Elsewhere, I have seen something called the IPLAYER plus that seems to 
have the ability to deliver the audio described signal, it claims to be the 
only top box to do this, is this true does anybody know? And will it record, or 
is it just a receiver? Grateful for any help in this mine field!
