I don't agree.
There are charity organisations that put stuff together for education etc. You have to ask what is possible given that mindset..

That I certainly agree with.

But Marietjie has made it clear this is not for public discussion, so we can't confirm their thinking. However, they're usually pretty good at doing right with conservation and charity.

Another thought, if they were mostly SD PVRs - MC have been pushing to get those "surrendered" which may explain the stockpiling, photos of that were in a couple of other threads in the last few months.

EDIT: Then again, there's also been a push to get rid of other old decoders.
