I just wish I could cut-and-paste the description that well....


Had the Goodmans badged version of this for a few years now. Initial software was flaky, but has been reasonably usable since update a long time ago now. Occasionally it loses the sound after a HD channel change and/or gets 'stalled' after some iPlayer'ing but a power cable disconnect/re-connect has always solved to date. Nowhere near as nice an interface as the Humax but that's a lot more £. I'd say £25 is a HUKD for this, but more is putting too much money into franky an 'unbranded' box and looking for a cleverer box with USB recording etc w/be more worthwhile.

Two slight problems.

1 It's Grundig - it will pack up in the first few months.
2 You're getting it from Play - they won't help you after 30 days.

You might as well throw the money down the drain.

Yeah I think this is quite expensive for what it is. Got mine for £39 from Tesco awhile ago and the iplayer is kinda slow. Plus, every so often it doesnt detect my ethernet connection, which is rather annoying and the interface is ok but it could be better.
