one more question. Does this take it's power from the TV or do you need a separate power supply?

If the scart point is behind the TV is there not a problem with the remote signal getting to the device?

Yeah you'll still need a decent ariel reception to get a good picture with this i'm afraid.

It has a plug in infrared extender you stick to the front of the TV.

Good price, but I've had 2 of these and they're not very good.

Buy a cheap set-top box - I did.

This is a great discreet DVB unit. We are on our second now as its predecessor the DFTA1000 failed.

A word of caution though, these units only have an aerial "in" so if you want to use you normal BBC, ITV or C4/5 etc you cant unless you fit a booster behind the TV to give you 2 UHF outputs, one for the TV and one for this unit. This wont matter if you will only use this freeview unit which you will have to when the analogue transmission is switched off.

I paid £29.97 for this less than 2 weeks ago. HOT

Thats going to stick out a long way from the back of your tv - could be a problem for those without much space at the back of their tv.
In any case, if the IR receiver needs a seperate box anyway then why not put the freeview receiver in that box instead - seems a bit stupid to me to try to cram it all into the scart socket and then have a seperate IR box.

These are rubbish,dont know why but we had 2 and they constantly played up ,turning off,freezing, and one doesnt even work now ......rubbish :x

sim doesnt get you free delivery as well

I guess it depends on how your scart sockets are laid out on your TV. This looks like it would be flush with the back of my TV, hidden from view but not interfering with a wall mount. If the IR receiver is like one I had for my PC then it will be rather small and be inconspicuous stuck onto the edge of a TV.
