best free to air box ever
on 26 March 2012
After figuring out that you have to tune for channels in the morning short out the channel list using the hundreds of bbc channels in place of the ones you pick up at night time only then sort out the channel list for a second time is a bit time consuming and annoying at first.
After picking up all the freesat channels as well as some freeview channels and a lot of channels like porn and religious were deleted I have to say that this is by far the best free to air box on the market.I am even considering getting a bigger dish so that I can pick up even more channels as once you have your list made up the way you want it.It is easy to scan the satellites without destroying your list (just search each individual satellite).
The complicated ways to keep your list and the initial setup can put some people off and the fact that this box doesn't work in HD may discourage others but I have never looked at a SD t.v and thought that the picture was so bad that I needed to spend 3x the money for a HD box.
The quality of the box is far better than Skys and with no monthly fees to Ruppert Murdoch this is the perfect box for me.
