3.0 out of 5 stars I am now a bald man having pulled all my hair out in exasperation using this box..., 6 Nov. 2015
I brought this machine to replace a Virgin Media TIVO box as I could'nt justify the monthly cost for the average TV channels on their 'Large' package. It has the potential to be an absolute cracking piece of kit... BUT.... Here are some interface 'screamers' I've discovered.
1. to delete one program once you have watched it takes 17 (YES. SEVENTEEN) button presses through menus to delete it.
2. Listed recorded programs do not display any sort of detailed description of each episode of the same program, the only hint you have got is the date. An example is 'A place in the sun' on channel 4, no info of where the program is looking for property.
3. The button layout on the remote is really poor... You have your navigation arrow buttons around the 'go' button, then in the corners between the navigation buttons you have the 'Return' 'Info' 'Tools' and 'Exit' buttons... If accidentally press 'Return' or 'Exit' you end up right back at the main menu. You may have (For Example) gone from the main menu to YouTube, typed your search in (Having pushing your cursor around on the screen with the navigation arrow buttons 20 times to spell out what you want) got to your subject, combed throught the list of them, chosen your video to watch, and be halfway through enjoying viewing it and want to fast forward a few boring minutes.... AND BINGO!! you are back at the main menu and have to re-enter all this to get back where you were AAAAAARRRRGGGGHHHHH!!!! Here a 'are you sure' prompt would have been well placed instead of in other menus where it is just a pointless extra step in achieving what you want to do.

Believe me this box will drive a sane TV 'Couch Potato' to the point of gibbering!!!! BE WARNED!!!!!!!!

This case is nicely made and is made to last. It protects the tablet really well and when the lid is closed it automatically turns the display off... Cool!!!

3.0 out of 5 stars This book is now obsolete!!!, 23 Nov. 2013

This book covers the google nexus 7 2012 version with Android version 4.1

We are now on Android version 4.4 (Kit-Kat) and the interface is quite different to the 4.1 version.
