I thought this deal would already be on here but can't find it. HD Freeview terrestrial box with HDMI lead included. Seems like perhaps it is an old model, main obvious difference being this does not have a display on the front of the unit.

Spotted a big pile in Risca Extra earlier. Freeview in this area is junk with hardly any channels as we are served by a relay transmitter and get few channels - hence why we have a SD freesat box.

This deal includes the STBHDH2010 and STBHDV2010 (thanks to mickemoomoo for the info).

Now available at Tesco Direct (thanks to Team_A for heads up).

http://direct.tesco.com/q/R.209-0458.aspx £50 online (edit: now £30). It could be that the deal is only available at Risca Extra or areas where freeview isn't brilliant.

Apparently has an ethernet and USB connection, not sure if this means iplayer etc are on there.

This is actually the newer one as far as i can tell.
i work on electrical at tesco and these only came in my store end of last week.
the older box is £70 and the new one is £30
loads in Nottingham Homeplus

About a dozen of these in Wishaw, picked up one tonight
#10
Would you be able to record via the USB?
#11
I picked one up from a Nottingham Tesco store (Bulwell) last night as the assistant was building a promotional stand for them.
They had about half a dozen on show.
Looks like they are indeed shifting some of this older stock to make way for a new model.

Thanks for this Anewman, have some heat my friend! :)

You can also get the STBHDV2010 model for same price. Just got one at Tesco Barnsley, they had plenty of both models in stock. Not sure which is the better model, this one I chose only has one scart which doesnt matter to me, but I chose it over the other because it has button controls on front and a channel display lcd.

Installed my STBHDV2010 this afternoon. Very straightforward, auto-tuned and found the HD channels no problems. I only want this to watch the Formula 1 on BBCHD so for £30 i don't expect much. Picture quality is fantastic on my full HD TV & seems to upscale non HD channels, or maybe just better picture quality than my TV receiver (not sure). If you read reviews some comments about slow response times & auto power off, but these can be overcome by changing energy saving settings. Only problem is that if you route your ariel through the freeview box & then to your TV, the signal is lost when you switch the freeview box to standby. I have overcome this by using an arial splitter which I already had. You can buy one on Amazon or Maplin for less than £5. This just means your main arial can be plugged into both the freeview box and your TV so your TV will get a freeview signal even when the box is turned off.

And with Tesco the 28 day refund is no problem even if you just don't like it. And if the box breaks down in the 12 month guarantee the service is excellant.

These are available from Tesco Direct for £30 as well if you can't find one in your local.
#18
yeah lots of different tesco models of these fvhd boxes, even Grundig ones on the tesco direct website, don't know which one is the best/most reliable, lots of reports of these tesco boxes crashing last year, also they don't seem to be able to decode the 5.1 audio broadcasts by bbc etc because of the format, anyone got any infos on this?

Cheers anewman for the heads up.
Got one of these (STBHDV2010) at Tesco North Shields this afternoon (£30). Luckily had a voucher to use up for £3 off £30 as well
They had about 8 out on the shelf, maybe more in storeroom.
They are next to a similar model @ £70.
They were unpriced on the shelf at the time but I reckon they will be by now as a member of staff was looking to do this.

Note: Implies on the box that you need to buy a hdmi cable separately but this model had one inside the box. Also has a scart lead and co-axial lead in box too.
Also, only one scart socket on this model

ordered STBHDH2010 for collection in store via tesco direct for £30 - will give it a go
#21
Can anyone report back on how good the STBHDH2010 is - I cannot find any useful reviews anywhere! Also, what is the USB socket for? Seems good value for £30, but I am wondering whether to hold out for something that can also record (even a single tuner).
#22
anybody tried connecting one of these tesco fvHD boxes to their surround system via optical, and managed to get 5.1 surround from the box when watching HD programs that were broadcast in 5.1? and any crashing(especially the HD channels) after a few days of use? (please state which model number thanks)
#23
Picked up the STBHDH2010 today from the local Tesco.

There is no need for a aerial splitter as this works perfectly fine, i have mine passing through a pvr recorder with no problems recording other channels etc. So dont know why the other poster has of problems with his?

The HD is good when available.

For £30 its about right, its a freeview box with 4 extra chanels that sometimes provide proper hd content. Just glad i did not spend £100 pound on this tech 6 month ago :D

What kind of pvr recorder do you have? I can't seem to find one which will record from a HDMI source? I'm looking for a modern day equivalent to a vcr which records anything connected to it. I used to have a dvd recorder but that stopped working a few months ago and I haven't replaced it yet.

The pvr wont record the hd channels i was just stating the signal from the aerial does not need splitting on this to be able to use both at the same time and record different channels on the pvr at the same time.

The STBHDH2010 may be going back soon as it is locking up more than i would like, whether its a duff one or not i dont know but i have had to pull the power source a few times since yesterday and hardly used it tbh :(

True Technika build quality shining through :D

You get what you pay for i guess.

so it seems they've not fixed the crashing bug by firmware updates? suprised not more people who bought this box from tesco report crashing/lockup problem here?

I can't seem to tune in the HD channels. My box froze once today already!

If the HD channels don't tune in, you are either in an area that doesnt have HD available or your signal isn't strong enough, due to your arial type / quality.

It should find them unless your in a really bad reception area? As a guide mine was showing 90% signal strength when setting it up.

As for it locking up its a bit random it behaved last night but the remote is slow to do anything even turn the thing on !!! Tbh its what i expected given the brand and the fact they are knocking it out for £30 at a profit. Even the sticker on the front of the remote was lifting off today, which is only cosmetic but still in just one DAY!!
#31
Cheers Guys, I'm going to buy a booster from argos tomorrow to see if that helps, if not, I'm going to have to return the box. Might consider FreeSat.
#32
picked one up yesterday to try - has frozen a couple of times already (STBHD2010)
painfully slow response to the remote
will see what the MotoGP looks like in HD this weekend and decide if it's worth £30 for the 4 HD channels

thanks for the updates, not looking good so far from the feedback :(

why don't they release some sort of firmware update to sort out these basic operational problems!
#34
What functionality do the ethernet and USB ports provide?
#35
Interesting...
#36
I bought one about 2 hours ago, and I'm returning it. I got the BHDV2010. It hasn't got a usb slot on it, its got hdmi and a ethernet port.

Keeps hanging, can't get any of the hd channels but I am using a booster aerial in a blackspot of a bedroom, so probably just me
#37
was in my local last night and they had all 3 models, got the STBHDH2010, with the silver strip on the front, which imo is the best looking one out of the 3 models, also their carboard boxes feels the freshest/newest out of the 3 so probably newer model/stock? even though it doesn't have front display, don't really mind that as both my sky+ & +HD boxes don't have "proper" channel displays either but no problems.

just got it setup today, pretty easy, scanned in all the freeview lite channels(relay) in my area including the HD channels fine, although as I've only got a portable indoor aerial in my bedroom, the signal for 1 of the mux is poor, the HD mux signal is just ok, but if I walk about in the room it breaks up a little, and so far (only been a few hours) no freezes, and the remote is ok'ish I suppose, not super responsive like the sky+hd and my tv remotes, but still acceptable.

will keep it for a few days to see if it freezes/hangs etc, if not I'll just keep it, decent value for £30.
#38
STBHDH2010 is a different kettle of fish and apparently has problems
#39
I ordered an STBHDH last night thought the usb port in the back would be more useful to me then the display. Plus think they look a bit more pleasing on the eye than the others. See how this one fairs.

Can't find any reviews, but the £70 version was taking a panning on tesco's reviews so hope this one has some updates on it.

Just thought I'd buy it now to see if there's a big difference when they switch off the analogue signal next week, and increase the digital signal.

Are there any firmware updates???????? there's the usb socket in the back.

Sounds like product rebadged, and doesn't get great reviews either: http://www.avforums.com/forums/freeview/1422635-full-hd-tv-freeview-but-how-see-hd.html
