    FreeView Hd+ Or FreeSat HD

    Not quite sure about this. Simply want to watch the World Cup in HD and spectulating over these products. Which one is better to get? If its Freesat can i use my Skydish to set it up without hassle contacting sky

    What do you guys think

    Sky dish will work no probs.
    I've got freesat but I'm seriously thinking of going back to sky just because the sky interface is so much better than the rest.

    You will need a twin LNB and an extra cable.

    Or buy a quad LNB and some twin cable then you can keep your sky box connected too.

    Look at ebay no. 200464256740. Everything you will need. £15.95:thumbsup:

    Do comtrends work on any router and not just bt services? Just double checking lol

    So its around £235 for Humax, £15 for wires and £40 for home plugs. Not bad + i could wireless my consoles too

    Your very helpful

    Go to Humax Direct Sales on their own website as they do a 320GB model (Grade A and guaranteed for 12 months) for £215.00 which is cheaper than you would get anywhere else
    If you are seeking larger storage then they have also bought out a 50gb model. I hae jus bought a 1TB version from LE Concepts for £330 which is an approved modified model guarenteed for 2 years
