    5.0 out of 5 stars Sagem DSI86HD - highly recommendable! 17 May 2010
    Sagem DSI86 HD Satellite TV Digital Box with Freesat HD

    I bought this Freesat receiver a couple of weeks ago and I have not regretted this purchase at all - the receiver is doing exactly what I expected it to do and it even exceeded my expectations.

    The unit came with an HDMI cable and plenty of useful information in the user leaflets. But I soon found out that there is no urgent need for assistance as the box guided me through the installation
    process with clear instructions. After only 3 minutes my box was set up and the first of over 140 free channels (no more Sky bills!!!) appeared on the screen.

    The menu itself is very straightforward too as most of the functions and settings are arranged in a very logical way. The programme guide allows me to check what is going on in a week's time
    and considering the price of this unit I am more than happy to accept the lack of a hard disk. If I really want to record something I can still use the AUX port to record directly to my DVD recorder.

    Another very interesting function that I was not aware of is the parental control which allows me to create a channel list for my children, with locked or hidden individual channels.

    Coming to the main point, the crisp picture quality:
    I can finally make use of my HD TV as the DSI86HD box receives HD channels. The HD quality is simply amazing, in particular when watching documentaries. And if I change the video settings to a
    higher solution even the standard definition programmes are looking much sharper than with my old box!

    - very easy to use
    - straightforward and quick installation
    - great picture quality
    - parental control function
    - 7 day programme guide

    Overall a very good product that I can only recommend.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Update for BBC iPlayer... 21 Dec 2010
    By stylepuppy TOP 50 REVIEWER
    Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
    The Sagemcom DS186 STB looks and feels quite cheap and plasticky when you first unpack it but once it's installed beneath your TV it's really a non-issue. Luckily the remote control feels more substantial and is comprehensive and clearly laid-out. The onscreen user-interface is also clear and easy to navigate and quite responsive in use.

    When this STB first appeared Sagem had claimed it would be compatible with BBC iPlayer after a future firmware update. The update took some time to arrive but is now available over-the-air or via Sagemcom's website (I'll post the URL in the comments) and can be installed manually by using a USB flash-drive plugged into the port on front of the unit. The update means you can connect your Sagemcom box to your broadband router using the ethernet port on the rear - note that it needs at least a 1Mbps connection. Now you can access BBC iPlayer via a special menu which appears when you press the red button (while watching BBC1) and watch iPlayer content directly on your TV.

    The Sagemcom box isn't the most sophisticated or expensive-looking but it's a great value way to get HD content on your TV and the new BBC iPlayer compatibility make it an even more compelling product. However, if you're thinking of buying one to make use of an old satellite dish then don't do what I did and get the box BEFORE you've checked the cables still work! Luckily Amazon sell good value satellite cabling too...

    5.0 out of 5 stars Digital Box working fine! 30 July 2010
    Verified Purchase
    Living in the Irish Republic and other than the fact I had to enter the UK area code that was in the manual to start installing, everything went fine! Setup worked great! Picture is now HD quality on my HD Samsung TV, so very pleased with this product, works very well! Really like the fact that the best channels are all sorted. The box has a good Program guide and having had an old FTA set top box which pulled in hundreds of channels when you tuned, having to spend an evening deleting them was kind of painful, so all in all this box is well worth the money spent.
    There is an option in the Republic of Ireland to get a combination box that does the Irish and British channels but is quite expensive.

    The instructions are very clear and I found that setting it up was very easy, tuning in was also simple as the step by step guide in the instructions were clear and logical
    The box itself works really well, though it does seem to get a bit warm but this does not affect its performance.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Simple to set up. 11 Mar 2011
    By Mike
    Verified Purchase
    Living in Spain I was not sure the Freesat Box would work,I ordered it anyway, it arrived within the week,usual prompt service by Amazon. Followed the clear instructions in the box and within 2 minutes 140 channels. The HD quality is amazing and I have a few more channels than I had on my old freeview box.My one gripe is that the manual tells you how to set up and arrange your favorite channels and then find you cannot access channels from the list with the remote the list is only for imformation only. Having said that the popular channels ie. BBC1,2,3,4 all the ITVs and 4 and 5 are installed at the beginning of of the channel list when you first install the box.All in all a good product at a sensible price that gives you fantastic pictur quality.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Plug-it and it works 14 Dec 2010
    Verified Purchase
    I bought the freesat receiver about a month ago. I moved recently in a house with no antenna on the roof because reception is very bad in my area. The previous owners had Sky and they left their dish in place when they left.

    My biggest question was: "Will it work out of the box ?"
    Well, it did. I just had to select the right cable out of the 2 coming from the dish, connect the box as show on the quick step guide provided, the provided HDMI cable to the TV, power it on and follow the steps on the screen. It works straight forward. No need for support or helpline what so ever.

    The TV Guide is very nice, Parent control very useful with small children at home and I finally get to enjoy proper HDTV with very good quality image.

    I can only recommend this box, especially considering its price.

    Oh, and since the last upgrade (as straight forward as the installation steps), available on SAGEM website, it gets BBC iPlayer too.
