I think this must be a new product from Freecom. I know Alba or some company like that did a similar thing to this but the Freecom looks better executed. As it's hinged it should fit into the back of your telly quite discreetly. Should be great for adding to analogue LCD TV's.

If you know of anywhere selling them cheaper please let me know. I posted really to let people know it's available.

That one doesn't appear to support UK teletext.

You might be better off getting the bush version - its cheaper too at £44.99 inc postage (maybe available even cheaper if you do a search)

Edit: the other common problem with these scart adaptors is that they often don't have RF loopthrough so you can't switch back to analogue without either scrambling round the back of the set and moving the plugs about or splitting the signal in the first place which is not recommended if you want a decent reception

Horses for courses. If you want all the connectivity of a freeview box get a freeview box. This is meant to be compact. Everytime you see people post offers for analogue LCD TV's others moan that it doesn't have integrated freeview. Often freeview LCD TV's are significantly more expensive than their analogue counterparts, much more than the £40 add-on this offers.

As for teletext, doesn't teletext have its own freeview channel. Sorry but I'm on Telewest cable so wouldn't know.

I'm certainly not suggesting that this is perfect but I think it's a good compromise. The Bush one just sticks out the wrong way. This one should still be useable if you want to wall-mount your tv.

Which would be a minimum of £47.68, so more expensive than the OP :?

You're correct, it is horses for courses, but some lcd screens I've seen have the scart socket on the side (but still recessed behind the screen) rather than straight into the back as is usual with CRT TVs.

You are correct that Teletext on ITV, C4 & Sky do have their own channels (100, 104 & 108 ). It would be interesting to know if anyone with this product can access those services - if yes, it's not perfect but a very good work around :) .

I think it's just been released Premier. If that's correct then £42 is probably it's rrp. Hopefully this will mean that prices for it may fall as other shops start selling them.
