Brilliant hd, poor sd!

  • Summary: I bought this for £50 from Amazon (its now over £100) and am pleased with it. I previously bought the grundig and sharp hd receivers but both kept crashing and the grundig kept skipping on the hd channels. Both were sent back.

Really only for HD tv sets

Iain Hunneybell ".../Iain", Amazon
16 September 2011
  • Summary: Smart unit and good quality picture, however, it is designed to 'drive' an HD rather than standard tv.

Freeview the way it should always have been!

  • Summary: Brilliant product. I don't know if it's just because Freeview boxes have come on a long way since I last bought one about 4 years ago, but this doesn't have any of the laggy interface or hard to use TV guides that I've learnt to associate freeview with. Quick, snappy operation.

Overall a very good receiver

If they get the sound right, it will be *****

Andrew J. Stanley "Tight Wad", Amazon
13 June 2010
  • Summary: Excellent picture quality in both HD and SD, better than the Humax I returned because of the sound reverting to LL every time a channel was changed. If you have an AV amp, sound is DD2.0 via the coax digital (Dr Who is 5.1) but webpage promises a software update to fix.
