    But huh I've never really thought of a freeview box with Internet access, I assume it just connects via ethernet or does it have WiFi capabilities?

    My girlfriend bought one last time they were posted, awesome little box for the money.

    It has an ethernet port for iPlayer, no WiFi and it's a little slow to load the iPlayer GUI but no complaints so far 8)

    I have one of these and the freeview HD channels look very good - better than the built-in HD freeview on my TV!

    Ive got one of these and it is absolutely brilliant the standard tv output is 100x better than the built in on my samsung and the menus are really quick, it even reminds you to switch to the hd channel if the program you're watching is available :)

    Bit of a stupid question - I have a Freeview-enabled TV, but the flat I live in is in a rubbishey area, signal-wise. I have an ariel booster, which when sitting next to an open window, gives me BBC 1, 2, and another two channels.

    Would buying this help the signal issue?

    Probably not no. But some devices are better than others at picking up a signal. Who knows if your TV is good or bad at it. You could compare results with a neighbour perhaps.

    @qwertymz - no. Your signal would be the same. There's a slim chance this would make a better job of getting channels out of your signal level but you'll probably always have bad signal. I've the same trouble (live in a valley) so I had to get a satellite dish.

    I can confirm that it connects via Ethernet. Wish they updated it to include a few more on demand providers. Namely 4od.

    Good find thanks :)

    i had this, yes, it does use ethernet onl,y my only problem with it was the iplayer interface was slow and if you pause for a few minutes the stream would be lost

    Thanks for the replies. Can't get SKY or similar as landlady doesn't want holes in her walls/drilling/etc so that's a shame. (Still, this is a hot deal!)

    have you have the digital switch over in your area yet? if not, signal should get alot better after usually.

    The digital switchover is complete. Teletext drew its last breath a couple of weeks ago in London. Dark days for Peter Kay's best gag.

    London and the UK aren't the same thing...

    Link. Most places are now digital, but there's still some areas not yet switched (including my neck of the woods, which doesn't switch until September this year :( )

    We've switched, but our picture is rubbish. I think there's an aerial in the attic but it doesn't seem to do anything if I plug my TV into the wall-point. Hence the booster aerial. But still - nada.
