Needless to say I'm sending it back and buying a different set top box.
The only excuse I can think of as to why this should be so bad is that it doesn't like less than perfect signals. But then again it works some days and doesn't work others so I can't see how it would be the signal.
Don't buy it.
I have freeview on an old Panasonic TV and this standalone box is way better.
The unit freezes constantly, resulting in having to pull out the power cord to reset it.
The sound also fluctuates from quiet to loud without touching the remote.
Do not buy this DVB reciever, it is a complete waste of money.
Philips neeed to fire their designers and employ some from Sony.
I have given it a rating of 1 star, only because there isn't an option for 0 stars!!!
As soon as you plug in and power on, an option appears asking you if you want to run the automatic set up.
Within a couple of minutes - all channels had been found and set, leaving me with the remote and manual in my handing thinking "What? That's it?"
For those of you who have a poor reception on channel 5 - this little machine makes it crystal.
Cannot fault the machine.
