To say this is the best satellite free to air box I have ever brought is a statement I will stand by, you get far more channels via this box than the normal standard Free Sat box or Sky Free Sat box. It does take a bit of tweaking and sorting out what channels you want and in what order you want them but once you have them it's a joy, unlike Free Sat or Sky Free Sat you dont have to key in 101 for BBC1 or 102 for BBC2 you just do what you used todo on old analog TV handsets and press 1 for BBC1 and press 2 for BBC2.I found this satellite receiver a breath of fresh air compared to the other 2 systems I have had in the past which were Goodmans Freesat and a Sky Free Sat Box,ok so it does not upgrade a channel when it moves(which might annoy some people)but hey you can do a simple search with out disturbing your already preset channels.I found quiet a few channels that are not on Free Sat or Sky Free Sat and all seem to have the EPG which on Free Sat if you could get them would not work any way, I checked my brothers Sky box and I had more EPG's that worked on my system than his after adding non-Sky services!!.I'm very impressed with this box and even more pleased with Satellite lists that you search so one is not stuck with just the Astra's main ones, you can add channels from Firebird,Atlanticbird and so many other ones if you like watching TV from out side of UK and dont mind having some on screen sub titles from the networks who broadcast the English language and have their own languange at the bottom of the screen.I found that I could receive all of the listed satellites even though I have what they call a non moveable dish,if the signal is there and the box can pick it up it will if the signal is fairly strong will work.Read more ›

It worked well once we started it up. (Don't forget there is an on/off switch on the back as well as the standby button on the front.) The picture is good, and the default settings were fine for the most part, except that they were set before BBC3 and BBC4 were available on FreeSat, so you will have to search for the stations again.

Be advised that this is "Free-to-Air" not "FreeSat." When you search for stations (possibly both Astra 28.2E and Eurobird 1 to get all channels), they won't all come out at the right places, so you need to move them where you want them. Be advised that you should search for channels in the evening when all stations are broadcasting, otherwise not all appear (BBC3 and BBC4 didn't). We set our channels to match FreeView, except there are certain channels that are free on FreeView, but pay on Sky (like Dave and 5USA, etc.). You do get many more, however, and the CBS stations have similar programming to the missing ones.

The manual is pretty useless, so it takes a while to figure some things out. (You also receive audio leads for non-existent audio outputs.) Make sure that you are showing "All Channels" when you are relocating them, or you will have gaps between them.

Overall, once we had it set up correctly, it's an excellent box for the price. It has worked flawlessly since the initial setup.

I've set up and installed quite a few Freesat boxes for friends and relatives, this box has to be the simplest.

With basic functionality and only standard resolution (For about £40 what more could one expect), this box is not for everyone, but if you want a unit that could be installed by a complete novice, this is the one.

The only very minor criticisms would be that it isn't supplied with batteries for the remote (2 x AAA) or a Scart lead.

Having been with Sky and feeling that I was being ripped off by both Sky and by the BBC licence fee, I decided I was going to at least ditch one.
Now, I am the kind of person who is wary of the overtly technical as it can lead to tears. I know nothing about what dish picks up signals from which satellite so I am looking at areas that are a bit annorak. I can however read so if what I read is accurate then setting up this unit should be straight forward. Oh joy, it was just that. As a bonus I hadn't laid out big bucks. My view of these things is easy and that's to buy something at a price that if it doesn't give me value for money then I get rid of it. Unlike the Sky box it doesn't record and I do miss a couple of channels. But, what I do get is absolutely free and that is like printing money. Okay, I still pay the TV licence grrrr, but that aside I can watch most of my favourite channels. The reason we get things like Sky is because we don't know there is an alternative. We think the guy who fits the dish must be a technical genius. We are sold a package like Sky because we are lazy and think we can't do things like this. If I can, then anyone can.

After wanting another Satellite receiver for a while, I came across this one. For the price it is amazing. The only thing I wish it had was a better programme guide. The one on this box only does a couple of programmes and only for the channel you are looking at. Apart from that I'm very happy with it and once you have sorted all the programmes into the order that you want them there's no more to be done. Not as user friendly as a normal sky receiver box but at least you can move all the unwanted channels out of the way and have the ones you watch available from position 1. A very good buy.
