TVonics WiFi Adapter (enables iPlayer) £8.99 delivered @ pulse-eight

Found 6th Nov 2012
For anyone who has purchased or is considering purchasing a TVonics DTR-HV250, DTR-Z500HD or DTR-HD500 and wants to enable iPlayer access through the interactive services. I've found WiFi adapters that work with the TVonics boxes especially hard to come by... and it's an especially essential addition to the DTR-HV250 where no wired connection is available. These were originally offered by TVonics for £29.99 a pop, so at £8.99 delivered, it has to be a deal for someone out there.

I know you can pick up cheap USB WiFi adapters elsewhere, but the point is that these are known to work with the TVonics boxes... if anyone knows of alternatives that are known to work with these boxes, please post links in the comments.

Not that I'm aware.

Silly question, but does this plug into the front of my TVonics DTR-Z500HD or the USB port on my TV??

Looks great and am almost certainly going to invest! Thanks!

Good find - I have been looking for one of these for a while. The instructions that came with the box tell you what to do. It plugs into either of the two USB ports on the TVonics box (front or rear)

Thanks to the o/p, but they are available cheaper...

You can get these from a well known auction site (see trader freshdeals4u) for £4.95 delivered - I know this as I bought one for my TVonics HD box and it works. There are two variants of the above adaptor - one is for B&G networks (correct model!), the other for B/G/N (will not work - different chipset) - They look identical apart from the addition of the 'N' designation.

If in doubt, check with the seller before purchasing that it is for B&G networks ONLY! (_;)

Thanks Getafix... I'll look into that.

I too would recommend what Getafix said, I have bought 20 from that same trader with no problems what so ever... Even gave me some extra for free!

Don't forget you can also connect by LAN cable!

Due to how many people were buying them, we went back to find out how much they cost to purchase and we have amended the price accordingly so that we can purchase more as they are selling so quickly!

Well, 8.99 still seems reasonable to me, I've amended the original post accordingly, don't know if that's the right thing to do?
