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.
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.
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.
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.Read more ›
The box is easy to set up for an amateur like me, and comes supplied with everything you need including batteries for the remote. There is a scart cable for relatively modern TVs and an RF cable for the sets that don't even have that. As soon as the box is plugged in, tuning is automatic and takes seconds.
The remote control is well-designed, comfortable to hold and easy to understand. It has a home button which takes you direct to BBC 1 and then a toggle button to the other channels. None of it complicated. It has a 'radio/TV' button for easy navigation between the two. The on-screen programme guide is quite adequate, giving now and next day immediately with 7-day information after a longer wait. You can, if you wish, reprogramme this remote control to include your TV as well.
All in all a lovely, well-made product, suitable for any non-digital TV and still working perfectly two years later. Includes parental control lock and subtitle buttons which are easy to find and use. Includes an automatic 'stand-by' function which kicks in after three hours if you've changed nothing. Very useful if you have a family member who falls asleep in front of the TV, but can be switched off. The box, instructions and especially the remote are suitable for the visually impaired and the audio-describer facility, which adds comments such as 'she munches an apple' is awesome.
