Your TV Link Eyes (what you called a dongle) will still work and now with both new decoders, so no need to get up.

Don't start confusing rumours Luke :p
The SD PVR is not yet retired.
The UEC 4 tuner will go long before the Pace 4 tuner does ;)

I think the idea may be that you can use a SD PVR trade in deal for the best Explora option, then still get a 2nd and maybe 3rd Explora at a fair discount.
