Unpacked the box and plugged it into mt old crt TV and pressed search, I had all the freesat channels within two minutes without problem. This is my third Goodmans Set top box attached to TV's in other rooms and have found it easy to set up and use, which is good for a techonophobe like me.Probably not the most expensive bit of kit on the market but its adequate and reasonably priced doing everything its designed to do.
When the receiver arrived I was surprised at how small neat and tidy the box was, unlike the cheap and nasty Triax box which it was replacing, after nearly setting the house on fire. The set up could have been done by my little boy, it was so simple, and it has proved to be a great little box all around. If I were to have any minor complaints I would say that the menu system could be improved a little and the power cable could do with being a couple of feet longer, but these really are picking hairs.
They say that you get what you pay for, in this case, in my opinion, I got a lot more!
It was very easy to set up and is now working like a dream. I would highly recommend this.
In a few words, good value for money without the cost of other satellite providers
We bought this to replace a box that died of old age. It would not work at all with the scart lead supplied, with the old scart we got to the first screen and no further. Called the Goodman tech support line, who told us that the box was not compatible with a single LNB. This, if true, is not stated anywhere on the product specs. We called out a engineer who told us that's rubbish, that the box is in fact blocked because it won't even re-set. BUT the truly annoying thing is that the box comes with a slip of paper stating 'DO NOT RETURN THIS PRODUCT'. Is that even legal when the product is defective? It is cheap but in this case you can't even say you get what you paid for - we paid for satellite receiver and didn't get one.
A no brainer as far as setup goes - works straight from the box.
