I was looking around for a cheap and cheerful Freeview box and came across this. It's tiny...the handset is nearly bigger than the box! Or maybe the handset is huge...
Anyway, cant complain at this price for a decent brand box. Good reviews on there too (though someone mentioned it's sticky???)
Postage is payable...if bought with Super Saver postage (£4.18) comes to a total of £18.16. Still worth it I think!

Electronic Programme Guide 7d
You want to know what programmes are available today and for the next 7 days, so that you can avoid missing your favourite shows by planning your evenings or making pre-scheduled recordings. The data is broadcasted by the programme broadcaster and when this data is available, this product compiles the information and lists it in the menu for your reference. Simply enter the menu, or press the EPG button on the remote control to access the programme guide. The EPG will provide you with an overview, listing the programme information for the following 7 days.
2 SCART connectors
2 SCART sockets allow you to connect to 2 devices at the same time. One for the TV, and the other either to a recording product (e.g. VCR or DVD recorder) for recording of TV programmes, or to a video playback device (e.g. DVD player or Blu-ray player). Simply connect the SCART sockets on the product to the SCART socket on the desired devices, by a SCART cable. Video signals would then pass through onto the other device for viewing or recording.
Pulse Killer Chip
Electrical interferences are neutralised by a built in chip called PKC
New channels are quite often being added to the broadcasting network during the digital switchover. To ensure that you always have access to all available channels, it is important that the product is able to scan and install new channels automatically. A very sensitive tuner in the product is scanning through the broadcasting network for new channels whenever the product is switched off. Whenever a new service is detected, it will be automatically updated and saved onto the channel list.
You want to continue to watch the public broadcasted programmes, and also the new programmes that were made available during the digital switchover. You can also access MHEG services (games, EPG, videotext). No subscription required to receive the most popular TV channels in the UK brought to you in digital quality.
