    It doesn't seem to have a DVB tuner, though, so it will be quite useless
    in a couple of years. (Or at least awkward to use as it will require an
    external DVB set-top-box to complement it, which in turn will make it
    wasteful, as the external DVB tuner/decoder can't provide it with the
    original, uncompressed MPEG-2 data "as is": needless MPEG-2
    decompression, digital-to-analog conversion, analog-to-digital
    conversion and recompression cycles will ensue.)

    For example, up here in Finland, the analog switch-off will happen in
    August 2007.
