3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed, 31 Dec 2013
Perhaps I expected too much; after all I have been a Fairport fan for over 40 years. The book feels sloppy, doesn't flow. There is no index and the illustrations are poor. Perhaps Nigel should stick to compiling box sets (his labour of love that is "the Life & Times of Richard Thompson" on Free Reed music is great). I much prefer Patrick Humphries books about Fairport and Richard Thompson. The perils of fandom.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dreamy, 4 July 2011
Does the term "Ambient folk music" exist? That's how I would describe the dreamy collaberation between Kenny Anderson & Jon Hopkins. Have never heard anything like it. The blend of Kenny's soft Scottish voice & Jon's clever augmentations is the stuff of dreams, music to lose yourself in.Bought the CD after hearing one track on BBC6 Music.

4.0 out of 5 stars Clever, too clever ?, 16 Nov 2010
Bought this because I wanted to be able to record & watch with one box & to get BBC i-player on TV. I dont want to pay money to Sky for a Plus box.
Eventually, thanks to the scores of reviews on Amazon,I understand how it works.
Just remember:
1. the remote is more complex than the Sky version. If it freezes then press the PVR button & control resumes.
2. Remove the plastic film on the front of the box AND the second piece on top of the buttons inside the flap.The remote then works better,
3. It takes longer to start up than a Sky Box so be patient
4. the manual is not very clear

1. Picture quality is better than Sky for me
