Would not bother with one of these waste of time :w00t:

reviews are not that great!
seems like there has been lot of faulty ones about.
good price, i will stay clear of this one. better off buying a better make for few more £.
just wondering you just replace sky box with this one as simple as that??

is this really HD?

is this really HD?


Yes, but only one part time BBC HD channel and a rare HD broadcast on ITV.

Lot's of reported problems with these receivers as well.
#7
Good price considering cheapest Humax is around £116. Compared to Sky prices it's a bargain alternative. Voted Hot.
#8
Reviews are either really good or really bad. It appaers that a bad batch spoilt what was a good unit. Hopefully, these will be ok and they will have improved the firmware. Very tempted to try one esp if coverd by Argos 14 day money back protection.

cant believe this isnt getting more heat?

nice looking small box, intuitive remote, and easy on screen menus

gotta be worth the money for HD tv access, especially when champions league starts again later in the year,

the pictue quality on bbc hd is awesome on my 42" panny plasma 1080i

Hi moggith,
do you need anything other than just exiting sky sat dish connected up in order to receive HD channels?

it comes with a hdmi cable - which are worth a few quid on their own

Just got mine back home and it is scanning the channels as I type.
Looks well made, far better than my Chinese Dreambox 500.
Mine also came with a HDMI cable - the PSU is external so the box should run a lot cooler than some and presumably last longer as it is the heat that kills them off (cooks the caps).

Now it's upgrading the software ...

Thanks to the OP - this is a bargain!

yes cheaper than sky but as there is little hd content for free kind of defeats the object of viewing in hd,if you want to use your hd tv no other viable option at the moment other than sky
#24
Voted hot, I bought the Grundig one reduced to 69 quid at Currys on here a couple of weeks back, really pleased with it with the new firmware updated. These all have the same internals just different styling Grundig/Bush/Goodmans. These are ideal for those that struggle to or cannot get Freeview/and/or want (albeit a limited) free HD broadcasts now rather than in 2 to 3 years time, perfect for the World Cup next year.
#25
ok so being daft!
Would i just unplug the sky box and fit the dish, and away we go? or do i need to repostion my sky dish?
#26
No record functionality? Well, that sucks. I'm not voting either way because we're a Freeview household so this deal isn't for me anyway. But I couldn't be without my DVR, even if it's not HD.

Doesn't defeat the object whereby there is no other cheaper alternative, Freeview HD doesnt even roll out until the end of this year and then only in a couple of locations in the country, then by the time the government drag their feet in this stupid switchover to full digital being completed by 2012 at least those of us that choose freesat (viewable nationwide now) can receive the limited HD content (which can only increase) and get to watch sporting events in HD now...not in a few years.

The UK is very, very behind (as usual) in HD, Freesat currently is the only free option.

The cheapest freesat recorder currently is the humax at 250 quid. For the tech savvy this is still a good deal as you can program the epg and hook it up to a DVD recorder/HD.

Would you even expect there to be a freeview DVR for this price?!
#29
just wondering guys can you pick up E4 HD on this
#30
I got the Humax one last year and it cost nearly £200 so this is a bargain. There are only 3 HD channels at present though; BBC HD, some ITV HD programs and Luxe TV which is *****.

bit thick today to many beers last nite

Not daft question, not everyone knows, yes, your sky dish is pointing at astra 28E this is the same satellite that Freesat broadcasts from and is the strongest receiving satellite in the UK positioned 28 degrees east of south on your compass.

You can literally take out the LNB connector from your sky box, plug it into this and providing you have a signal strength over 50%, put in your postcode (so the box can regionalise bbc, itv etc) and it will download and store the channels for you automatically.

no they are in contract with sky, so not available.

just BBC HD, ITV (sometimes) and LUXE HD (not much on there, but looks stunning)

You can only get normal terrestrial tv on these boxes, not paid subscription football so no live premiership..for that you would need either a sky sports subscription or a satellite dish that picks up foreign channels with either a subscription viewing card or emulation software.

You're welcome, these will still be great though when the world cup rolls around next year, with both BBC and ITV showing in High Def.

Also watching Wimbledon in HD is fantastic, so much more clarity.

Will wait to buy when theres at least 10 channels and by that time these boxes will be like all others. Around 40-45.
