Sharp to release new Freeview, Freeview HD set-top boxes in UK Sharp will release its first two Freeview HD set-top receivers in the UK over the coming weeks. First though, it will release a new Freeview DVR (standard-definition) receiver that uses USB-connected storage to make it easier to transfer recorded Freeview content to a computer (but unfortunately will not play back content from a computer).
The Sharp TU-T1UR has three USB 2.0 ports on the front of the box for use with external hard driver, flash drives or SD card adapters. It connects to a standard definition television through SCART, Composite cables or through HDMI (even though the box is not HD). It features a typical eight-day programming guide and standard DVR recording and scheduling features.

In late April, Sharp will release the TU-T2, it's first Freeview HD receiver that has an HDMI output for connection to a High-definition television. Just weeks after in early May, Sharp will release its first Freeview HD DVR. The twin-tuner TU-T2HR32 has an internal 320GB hard drive for recording television programming.
