Can you provide more details such as make of box, what is included, asking price including delivery and payment options. Any pics ebay id etc would be useful too.

I'm considering getting one myself.

Thanks

Im not selling it just checking on value

If theres interest will open a FS thread.

Its either a Thomson or Pace, not sure, its the newest model though as has no component out.

I mainly take bank transfer but can take pp as long as gift payment(i.e no fees)

It comes with Scart and Hdmi leads, power lead, remote, I have the manual still sealed too.

Dont think I got a box with it but can check.

back to crt honestly? ive just shelled out over £2000 for a new pio kuro i didnt think you could even buy crts ugly cumbersome blast from the past retro items mate its 2008 move on how old are you?


Older than you it seems and your snobbish attitude towards crt

Crts are often better looking than LCDS just heavy, and can show SD pictures great.

LCD pictures and some plasmas hurt my eyes and make me feel sick as the sharpness is off and the resolution for sd is ugly.

You can get CRT HD sets but they are rare, which is what I want.

the quality of crt is very good as the lcd/plasma technology reduces the size of a unit considerably but dosent necessarily increase picture quality.

It's probably worth at least £140 plus postage.. I would thing it will be a Thomsom reciever.. Best of your luck with your sale..

A high def image on a high def Plasma, will be considerably better than on a SD CRT. Anyone who thinks differently really needs an eye test.

As for HD CRT.. try find one... and the mortage to purchase. (Monster size machine as well as high costs because no one wants one (Ryouga aside.)

Some might claim that SD is better on CRT. I aint one of them (though I'd agree for LCD)
#11
The sd picture on my Sammy 40" LCD is excellent through a skyHD box but through a aerial its awful. I have got a Sony 26" LCD and the picture is not much better on that through the aerial either..

I think that you may well find that is not yours to sell, I am fairly certain that it only becomes your property after 12 months of paying Sky their outrageous charges.;-)

Your probably right about that inactive... They could probably get away with that but they won't get away with the £10 HD per month sub that will have to be paid for 12 months..

Im not with sky but that was always my impression. After 12months you own the box and so if anything goes wrong you have to pay for their technician to come and fix it. That's why Im with Virgin as its free to fix all the time (obviously you have to retun the box though).

No, it's not like Virgin where it always remains their property. Once you buy the box then it's yours to do with as you wish but as mentioned they will have to pay the extra £10 a month until the end of the 12 months.

Bong. Wrong answer.

The box is yours from day one.

Ryouga - providing your price is right, i'll pay you cash! - I take it you're still in Chester?

Just checked mine.........all it says is a minimum term of 12 months and the box remains the property of me from the date i purchased it. It comes with a 12 month warranty for repairs/replacement and after which time i'm liable for any costs to replace/repair.

Fair enough, they must have changed things.

But what happens if the OP defaults on payments to Sky within the 12 month period?

Bong. Wrong answer number 2....


And if he defaults on his payment then sky will take him to court to recover the money (or similar scenario.) It would have no bearing on the buyer, who has bought a box that has zero to do with sky TV - apart from the fact its used to receive their service - and they manage the warranty.

Just exactly the same as buying and selling a mobile phone. Its yours from day one...... and you are free to sell and the buyer has nothing to worry about in respect of any contract.

Not quite, the Sky receiver still has to be connected to a phone line for 12 months, so that could present problems for the OP.

Good point - though that would just be the OP that had the problem. Having said that, the reality is there would be no problem unless its multi room.
#25
Sky wouldn't know any different if the OP repalced the HD box with a standard sky receiver and connected the phone line... Would they?

My Sky+ box has never been connected to the phone line, well I have plugged it in twice to order pay per view things via the red button.

Your phone line is only connected to order pay per view stuff. (as far as I know)
#27
From Sky Web Site;

" General: Your Sky box(es) must be connected to a fixed telephone line for 12 months. "

The one in my bedroom is a long way from the nearest phone point.........when the engineer came he ran a quick extension as i said i didn't want wires everywhere and then unplugged it and said that they never know anyway. lol

Just shows how much their " engineers " know, Sky certainly do know, they don't always do anything about it tho'.

Ryouga, I have just got the panny th42pz80b and the SD picture blew me away!!! I researched for ages, and had lots of help from the friendly folk on here. Its bigger and better than almost any CRT ice seen, even just through the normal arial from my roof!

Way to put words in my mouth! lol, I dont hate skinny women, just like I dont hate skinny tvs just dont like them as much

If there was a "skinny" CRT hd tv id still go for that over a skinny lcd one.

LCD is great for pcs but it doesnt feel good to watch movies and tv on, but games are fine.

Plasma is fine too but very expensive

I'd agree that Plasma is better than LCD (from personal experience), but if Plasma is too expensive, then you've no chance of an HD CRT.

I seem to recall that Samsung did bring one out, however it was plagued with problems, so probably no longer available.

I agree, Plasma is far better than LCD. ( from my personal experience ).:thumbsup:
