5.0 out of 5 stars Goodmans GDR11 Digital TV Receiver 14 May 2012
Verified Purchase
I'm delighted with this SD set-top box. I have a perfectly good, old-style TV and a Freeview HD/DVD recorder. Before the analogue signal was switched off I could record any freview digital channel while watching a different channel with the TV's analogue tuner. After digital switchover, I wanted to be able to do the same so I searched reviews of set-top boxes. I didn't need an HD set-top box for my old TV and when I finally buy a new TV it will have a digital tuner.

The GDR11 is small and smart-looking. It has two scart sockets and comes with a scart cable and an RF cable. It was very easy to set up. The quick-start guide and detailed user guide are very clear and easy to follow - Crystal Mark approved by the Plain English Campaign.

The remote is straightforward, well-designed and comfortable to hold. It has a 'swap' button button to toggle between current channel and previous channel and a 'home' button which takes you direct to BBC 1. It has a 'radio/tv' button to help navigation selection. The programme guide is fine, giving now and next immediately but 7-day information after a longer wait.

A very clear and simple guide: 'How to set up your universal remote control' was included for programming the remote to operate many different makes of TV also. This one-time operation was very easy to do and the one remote now controls the TV on/off/volume+/volume-/mute in addition to on/off/guide/channels etc for the GDR11.

One reviewer commented on a suspected malfunction - going into standby by itself. Another reviewer helfully stated that this is an 'auto-standby' feature that can be turned off as described on page 71 of the user guide. This information is correct.

Summary: an excellent product and very good value for money.

By P. Kent

No indication of how it will last, however it worked straight out of the box. I'm not a techi but it was easy to set up.
I ordered a seperate scart lead because the description was not clear. In the box you get: 1.Digital TV receiver. 2. Remote control. 3. Two batteries. 4. RF cable. 5. 3 different guides.6. Scart cable.

1.0 out of 5 stars Be warned. 5 Oct 2012
Bought one of these GDR11 boxes. Installation was a doddle and it had a useful feature in that a signal strength meter allowed me to give a tweak to the aerial. On my previous box, I could check out what was on other channels without leaving the channel I was on. This one you have to flick through all the channels. (Dumb or what?) Was working fine for two months and then it died, got a replacement, and now that one has died within a couple of weeks. I would not touch this product with a barge pole.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good for the price 5 Jun 2012
Verified Purchase
I had a certain amount of problem at first - couldn't get a consistent signal. To cut a long story short I eventually found that a touch type table lamp cable was somehow interferring with the box's power cable and affecting the signal (keeping a hand on the box's (unearthed) power cable would improve signal and vice versa). Finally I moved the table lamp and now everything works fine.

I Now consider this a very good box for the money - it only loses a star for the problem.

-Firstly, and important for me, it can be connected to the TV's AERIAL socket - so useful for extending the life of older TV (no scart) or, for newer TV's, easier than feeding a thick/unwieldy scart cable some distance to the telly. [NOTE: Such boxes are not easy to find. In my quest I thought that "RF Out" was all I needed But then I discovered that on many boxes which have an "RF Out" that this is actually a simple by-pass loop and would only send raw, unprocessed signals to the TV. You need to double check that "RF Out" is an an RF/UHF Modulator.]

-Secondly, set-up is easy - once plugged in and all connected, hit OK on the remote and off it goes.

-Thirdly, it has all the features you need, Channel list, Favourite lists, simple but effective 7-day program guide, good Remote which can also control your TV on/off and volume.

-Fourthly, in "standby" it will continually search and add new channels automatically and tell you the next time you switch on.

Overall you cannot fault it for the price. Does the job - does it well.

UPDATE:
So pleased with this box I have now installed a second box for another TV (in another room) but came across a new problem. Basically could not get any signal at all.

5.0 out of 5 stars A very good buy indeed 10 Aug 2012
Verified Purchase
Over the past 10 or so years I've bought several Freeview boxes - I do find they only last a few years - for my 2 television sets. This is one of the best. All the previous ones I've had had their own little foibles, but this one seems fault free, and this is after a few weeks' trial. The only tiny quibble I have is that I haven't so far found a way to delete unwanted shopping etc. channels, but this is a small price to pay for all the good features.
