Vestel T810 based PVRs first began appearing in Summer 2006, and were a cheap dual tuner PVR, but only able to record one channel at a time (and you couldn't timeshift live tv while a recording was in progress).
The Vestel T810 PVRs were phased out around August 2007.
There were no noticable differences functionality-wise between v3.5 through v5.7 software versions - the newer software versions offer improved stability. All versions suffer from EPG population/retention problems (EPG is usually not fully populated to the full 8-days) and the infamous black line bug (bottom portion of picture is missing / cropped off, which may or not be visible depending on your TV's overscan settings).
Around Christmas 2006 somebody uploaded an unofficial software build (v1.0) that had twin record capability, much like the newer T816. However, although it mostly works fine, due to the T810's lack of DRAM (32Mb) there are problems with EPG population and non-working MHEG / interactivity. More importantly, this software version shares the same issue as earlier versions of the standard software in that it will not work in some areas after digital switchover (on transmitters that are using 8K mode with negative UHF offsets). So, v5.7 must be used instead.
