Any reviews?


from the net.

This is quite a new machine (as at may 2006), so I thought I would try it out.
The first problem i had was not all channels were tuned by the installation step, I had to figure out how to search a second time, all channels tuned in ok after that

The box seems to find the signal strength here to be quite poor, however a different £30 freeview box that I tried yesterday here had no problems with signal strength! (Could it just be a storm in the air today?). Consequently the "no signal" window appears every few minutes. This was aggravated by the recording mode which seems to causing further screen "glitches" on channels that have poorer reception
However after installing a signal amplifier, then turning off the box and switching it back on again most of the problems appeared to go away.

The remote control is fairly solid, buttons are terribly placed - you have to actually look at the remote to find buttons. Also you cannot browse channels before viewing them, the browse buttons force you to change channel. The EPG is OK, you can select channels to record effortlessly. A minor gripe is that you cannot resort the list of channels, so E4 or More4 will always be several channels away...
The recording works well in good reception, otherwise it will cause screen glitching. There are no fans in the box, so it is very quiet.

Apart from the initial glitches which really got me worried and appear to have gone away, you get what you pay for and it seems pretty good provided signal strength is good.
31-August-2006. Came home to find the box turned off and it wont power back on at all! Changed the fuse - nothing doing! Will return it to Argos

1-Sep-2006. Took the box to Argos, they immediately replaced it with what appears to be a newer model the GHD 8015F2 although I cannot find it on the internet just yet! Everything is much better designed, all the weaknesses reviewed above have been fixed including the remote controller. The only thing that has been overlooked is the EPG which is only available in one flavour now, and is slightly harder/slower to locate a program you wish to record. Also there is no longer the facility to set the box to automatically switch to a program by setting a timer on it - however this is slightly offset by the fact you can now record a program then play it back a few minutes later if you missed the begining. Overall much better design. With a bit of luck a broadcasted update will resolve the EPG to provide a simpler list view

ok Nothing special for £100, lots appear to be on the market now for less than this. You could have two grade a refurbs for this price ! I bought a refurb same sort of spec from microdirect for £50 works great. There is also one a few posts above a much better deal

Any reviews?

I was getting myself ready to buy one of these on Monday but then took a look at the reviews on Amazon - suggests there are some serious problems with this machine! I'm sure you can make your own minds up though!
#21
The reviews I found put me off, so I won't be buying one. Seems to have a loud fan and some dodgy firmware.
#22
im the sado who has to work a 2pm - 10pm shift at the royal mail 2moro and the reason why im a sado is im staying up all night just to be able to snag one as id normally wake up about 11pm which would prob be too late.

However goodmans is a good name brand there's another offer on this forum which is similar and constantly same price however it seems refurbished.

£45.24 with free postage http://www.ebuyer.com/product/136083

Although alot of people don't know digihome they are quite a good brand new commer it seems, i had 4 freeview boxes in the past all by a company called DIGIFUSION (AVOID) the boxes kept crashing and as for manufacture support good luck lol however i then got a DIGIHOME box which is in argos for £20 and have used it for about a year now without a single problem in addition my brother bought a flatscreen 42" LCD HD TV when he moved back home it had built in freeview and was made by DIGIHOME not bad for £500 and he's never had a problem.

So its a back up solution if you miss out or have any problems, im currently using my digihome box on a indoor tv ariel lol don't ask how tv ariel i had for years that was for signal booster must be a pre-made digital ariel.

Although it does depend on the area you live and the rooftop ariel as my friend moved into an appartment and it wouldn't work with his rooftop ariel and as for his indoor ariel although he thinks its good its just a piece of plastic with no actual ariel connections as it broke and i seen it, prob came out a pound shop

Site is running REEAAALLLLYYYY slow
has anyone got one?
#27
Well there it is at £49 and in stock - I need one. But with those reviews who would really want to risk it especially for an xmas pressy. Perhaps these are all returned stock and they've fixed the problems? Who knows.

YEP the website is performing exactly like this player - not responding muwhahahahaaa
#28

i'm pretty sure they are all still there, but their site can't handle the demand and the basket can't understand that this is now 49.99!!
#32
Been trying since 10:00 and only ever showed as £99
#33
even when i saw it at 49.99 it still added to the basket at 99.99
