Default Should I buy a CS-505 or a TviX 5130

I just can't decide on whether to buy the Ziova CS-505 or the TviX 5130 (which I now here is delayed until October).

I currently have a Samsung upscaling DVD, a Pinnacle Showcenter, and a Sony VTX Freeview box.

I originally wanted to get rid of the Sony and the Showcenter and use the TviX 5130 as it has a DVB-T tuner (and recording capabilities), but I hear it's not that great and the unit has to reboot into a different mode to use the media center capabilities.

The Ziova seems to have a great interface and is working superb since the lastest firmware release,plus it has the DVD Upscaler.

I just can't decide. Can anyone help me along?

It's switch between recording mode (HDTv) and Video mode, not reboot.
Since most of both players can already be done with what you have why not
live with it a few more months to have wider selection? Seems like the
normal thing to do and you are hungry more for something new instead
of really needing it right now...

In that case, by both
