Vestel T7650 Freeview+ HD (Project Amber)
Freeview+ The T7650 model will be available in Summer 2012, as a successor to the previous T7300 model. The T7650 is much smaller with an external PSU, just like the T835 compared to the larger earlier models. Like the T7300, it is DVB-T2 equipped Freeview+ HD recorder built around the Broadcom chipset and Sony CXD2820R DVB-T2 demodulators, although is uses some STMicroelectronics auxillary chips unlike the T7300.

Cosmetically, the unit is very similar to the T835 models and the remote control is the same design as the T7300's. The new Project Amber software is very similar to the T7300's Project Breathe software and contains numerous fixes and improvements, such as the welcome return of the infamous "Gemstar" functionality from the pre-T835 days, a sortable timer list, better HDMI colour balance/saturation, corrected 1080p display position and smoother HDMI handshaking. The internet portal of the T7300 which housed the HTML-based BBC iPlayer has been replaced with the MHEG version of the iPlayer.
