You *******!!!

I was really tempted to vote this deal cold, because you have just made me spend £60 on impulse!!!

But actually I can't wait for it to arrive. Even comes with a remote. Only downside, Lithium rechargeable. Wish it took AAAs. But for £60... heat and rep added

Not actually in stock though

I saw the deal in the most recent news letter from saverstore so I would have thought it's a brand new product.

Maybe im wrong but I have one of those Virgin lobster phones that has the DAB radio and TV, isnt DVB-T is being closed down by the end of the year in favour of DVB-H EU standard?

Im maybe geting my DVB's mixed up maybe someone can clarify?
#5
DVB = Digital Video Broadcasting
#6
Hi Bianco, isn't there more than one Digital Video Brodcasting and isnt the 'H' one being adopted as standard by the EU?
#7
Yes there is more than one type of digital broardcasting, but this TV uses the same as any freeview set top box.
#8
BT Movio (the service that Virgin Mobile used) sent video over DAB signals.

As stated above, this device uses DVB-T (Freeview), the EU has recently adopted DVB-H as the European mobile video standard.

DVB-H is more suited to mobile devices as it sends video in bursts rather than a stream (e.g. your device is not always having to receive data), therefore using less battery.

But DVB-H in the UK requires part of the broadcasting spectrum that is currently in use (by analogue TV), so it's a few years off here.

Either way, £60 for this sounds pretty good considering how much Analogue portable TV's were a couple of years back. I'd hold off until there's some more info/reviews (DVB-T is notoriously poor when used on the move, so this is probably best used when you're not moving about).

Also, note that although it receives 'Digital Radio', this is not DAB. It means the radio channels on Freeview.

Thanks for clearing that up.... I wondered whether it meant DAB or just Radio Stations over DVB-T.

Because this is self powered (ie it doesn't require mains electricity to run) then this is..


NOT SUBJECT TO A TV LICENCE

If this is your only TV, you do not need a licence. This will make it even more appealing to students I'm sure.

Not quite true. A portable TV that runs off batteries contained wholly whithin the body of the TV is covered by your house licence, but if you don't have a licence for your house then you still need a licence for a portable.

But a lot easier to slip in your pocket than the 40inch plasma, when the big blue van appears at your door :whistling:

I also read something in Which Magazine donkeys years ago. If you go on holidays in a caravan, and take your portable TV with you (this is pre-casio 1.5 inch days I am talking about), then you are covered by your home licence. However if someone is at home watching TV, you need another licence.

But don't worry if you see one of these outside your place (do they really work? I wonder...)

These days the retailers have to give the names and addresses of people who buy a TV to the Government, so the name and address you gave for delivery will be listed on the database. They won't need a van.

Agree, but then it would have cost a lot more than £60. I would have preferred it to have been widescreen. But hey, by next year, who knows.

It's always been that way - "TV detector vans" were always a myth.

Well I thought so too, as do most of my friends. But when I googled tv detector van earlier I found a load of technical articles - admittedly many by the BBC and TV Licence people - and some technical discussions. An interesting article was this. They say was a rumour, is now a reality, but mainly a deterrent to scare people. So I am not so sure now.

Anyway, I can hardly imagine someone coming up to me in the car with my new toy-to-be, and and asking if I have a TV licence. I will probably say if they are anything to do with the BBC why should I believe a word they say anymore, and drive off.

Great deal - these retailfor £99 most other stockists (maplin, etc).

Darn another gadget on the way :thumbsup:

A TV licence is needed even if you have a PC and monitor. In fact, anything that is capable of picking up a BBC broadcast needs a TV licence.

Urban myth - you only need a TV licence if you're receiving TV broadcasts. Having a monitor connected to a PC, or a TV only used for DVD and hence not tuned in, is fine.

You are wrong. Anything 'capable' of receiving TV requires a licence unless it is a portable TV with batteries housed entirely within the TV and you already have a licence for your main TV. A TV in a caravan or car running of a car or leisure battery needs a separate licence.

One thing you can guarantee if you are caught you will be treated more harshly than a mugger or burglar or even a hit and run driver.

Ho hum all very interesting no doubt but could we just stick to whether the product is any good and worth the money?:?

So what if you got a second hand TV or bought a new one with cash :roll:

So what if you got a second hand TV or bought a new one with cash :roll:


If you buy any equipment capable of decoding a TV signal (TV, VCR, DVD recorder) then the seller is supposed to take your address details. Let's face it, it's not hard to make up an address. I tend to use 22 Acacia Avenue, EH6 6IM and no one has ever queried it yet.

The TV licensing peeps work on the basis that almost all houses have a TV, so they just send letters and knock on the doors of the addresses that don't have one. An ex used to get the letters all the time, until eventually they turned up at the door and were given a tour of the house, which had no TV and no video recorder, and the letters stopped. She now has both, but I doubt they's bother going round again.

You don't need one if you just have a PC and monitor, unless you have a decoder card. There may be changes afoot because of the amount of BBC TV to be made available via iPlayer, but these kind of things need an act of parliament to change and I can't see them bothering given how many people don't have TV licenses.

Cheers

No, you are wrong. You're allowed to own things 'capable' of receiving a TV signal, but if it isn't tuned in and not cabled up, you don't have to pay, since there are plenty of legitimate uses for owning a TV (think: DVDs, games consoles etc etc).

Whatsmore, a TV licensing person can't come into your home without a search warrant, which they generally don't get since they're both costly and a lot of work.

Even TV licensing admit it, although they claim you need to contact them to prove it (you don't, since the onus of proof is on them).

I thought 480x234 was widescreen

Savastore have now corrected this error, it now reads:[INDENT]

:-(Still waiting for mine...

Received mine today.:) In my opinion the screen is of poor quality.:-( I'm sending it back. It also comes with a two pin European plug charger.:x

I bought a 9.2" portable divvx/ freeview /mp3 and comes with jotstick to play the 300 retro games (big kid at heart) its also region free .
I paid £137 but think its was worth it considering the extra benifits to it

They became aware of that problem and sent out adapters the next day. I agree the screen is not so brilliant, a bit like those early laptops that had a narrow field of view. However it suits me as only I watch it, and for £60 I cant find anything better.

It also recevies widescreen broadcasts, they appear as letterbox. You can't switch between letterbox and pan and scan, but I am happy with the letterbox view.

TV out also works OK, so you can use this as a freeview box for a hotel / caravan / portable TV.

The remote works fine, and the menus are good.

It comes with an adapter for 5 x AA batteries as well. I tried with rechargeables, it works OK but you do get false low battery warnings. A minor irritation, but at least it can be used with AAs. I presume it would be fine with Alkalines.

By the way ebuyer have just started selling then for £54.99, AND with free shipping on supersaver deliveries (5 working days). See http://www.ebuyer.com/UK/product/131827 :w00t:

Just received mine but can't get a signal with the built in aerial. In the trouble shooting guide it says that I should connect an external aerial. I may be being a bit thick!! but how do you connect an external aerial to it???
