EPG Providers

As reported in other threads, Digifusion Freeview PVRs are no longer being provided with EPG updates, which means they are about to become expensive doorstops.

This means getting, eventually, a new freeview PVR, luckily not a real hardship, but a nuisance nevertheless.

How do I ensure the same thing does not happen again? Where can I find any reviews or forecasts of EPG availability and reliability on the various makes of PVR?

"How do I ensure the same thing does not happen again? - I don't think that you ensure that.
Your link states which ones are getting the updates.

I'm not particularly bothered which ones are getting the updates at the moment - obviously every one which is currently on sale does.

What I'm trying to get get a feel for is which ones will be getting the update, or which will be updateable by a third `party, in six months, or even six years, time.
