Humax Foxsat-HD Set top box


Very easy set up. -plug in , enter postcode, auto search and hey presto 150 channels found.

2 Scarts, 1 Component, 1 HDMI

Can watch TV and simultaneously output via scart connector or component to recording device, (but won't get HD, some material is copyrighted)

High Definition images loook amazing, excellent detail and good colours and virtually none of the artifacting/fussinesss of Standard Definition images.

(In fact can be a bit grizzly at times when it comes to seeing hot sweaty chefs with 5 o'clock shadows!)

Detailed and useful printed manual

Canon PowerShot A1100 IS Digital Camera - Silver (&hellip by Canon
3.0 out of 5 stars Canon A1100 IS, 30 Oct 2010
I purchased this recently from Amazon as a replacement for my elderly 2.1MP Kodak DC280 Zoom, which died on me.I have to say I am very dissapointed with picture quality, it is noticeably inferior to the Kodak. Photos look washed-out and lack clarity and detail.

I have tried tweeking all the available settings but it makes little or no difference. It just goes to show that having a high MP rating is no substitute for decent optics. The Kodak DC280 was an exceptional camera , the Canon A1100 clearly is not!

Very impressed so far. Sucks up dirt, dust and fluff with ease, -and with transparent dust canister it is is to see when it needs emptying.

Extension hose extends to an impressive 6'+ and when used with the aluminium lance reaches at least 8'. Has plenty of suction, so much so that the extension hose tries to retract in use -actually have to prise some of the tools of the carpet and use some muscle to move them.

Bad points. Noisy, even though motor rated at only 1400W I find noise is just above comfortable level.

Extension hose and lance form the pushing handle for normal vacuuming. So unless you do your cleaning in the right order you spend a lot of time… Read more
