High definition PC Freeview adapters - not in UK

Like if this guide is helpful
There are a number of devices available which will allow you to watch or record Freeview. Some of these are advertised as being "High Definition". Whilst it may be true that the hardware or software is capable of handling high definition images, and possibly will receive HD broadcasts in other countries, at the time of writing (October 2009) it is very unlikely that they will handle the forthcoming High Definition Freeview broadcasts in the UK.

The standard to look for is DVB-T2. In addition, again at the time of writing, the standards for Digital Rights Management (DRM) have not yet been confirmed, so even a DVB-T2 receiver may not be able to handle UK Freeview.
