Figured this deserved it's own post as it appears to be the cheapest going at the mo. 2 year warranty as standard.

I must admit after checking this out myself you do get problems with some SD broadcasts, but then again I only use it fo the extre fta and non fta channels and for HD only. For freeview SD your better watching it thru your tv with inbuilt freeview if you can...

make your own judgement either way....

by the way I mainly got it for the extra 12 music channels I get on a fixed dish, couple that to a motorised dish and you get Nat Geigraphic HD too.... :))
by the way I copy straight to external dvd recorder with no problems too, though if you go for a comag hd you can also copy hd direct to a external hard drive with the usb output it has!!

just a thought..
quad lnb on ebay at £9.99, i have fitted ten upto now and not had a problem... just check satellitetv out for more info, and is ITV HD really worth commenting about... I install and believe for about 3 programmes per month its not really worth getting freesat just for that lmao....

A software update can be forced by switching the STB off at the mains, leaving for 30secs and then re-establish power whilst keeping "backup" pressed in on your STB (not on the remote). You might need to hold the backup button down for up to 30secs before the dowload starts.

In saying all of that, I'm not sure if this forces an EPG update? Anyone advise?


You should not force an update, it is normally only done at installation and no it will not get you the new EPG. For info go to Digital Spy, there is a thread with 4000 odd posts on the subject and covers all you will ever need and more...

There is a non-freesat mode that lets you scan for all the FTA channels and there is no limit on the number as there is with the Sky Boxes. There is even an hidden menu that allows you to operate motorised systems for acccess to 1000's of FTA channles from other satellites.

I believe, to record to DVD you would have to copy to an external hard drive first to transfer to a PC or record from the scart output to an input on a DVD recorder.



I think you still have to set up the channel manually and there is rumour of ITV trying to restrict it.
