EchoStar HDS-600RS SlingLoaded TV Anywhere Freesat&hellip by EchoStar Software Ltd

Just a quick update for anyone considering buying one now. I would ignore early reviews as software updates have made them redundant. The latest software is v121R (only available via internet at time of writing as its new).
Important stuff.
1. It has never missed a recording.
2. No harder to use than when you first got your Sky+ (remember?)
3. The remote is fine (although I use "Logitech Harmony 600" for controlling everything).
4. Sling works very well.
5. It will only get better as Echostar release future updates.
6. Unusual design, but looks fine under my TV. (lights can now be dimmed and it can be made silent in standby)
7. Read the manual as most… Read more

The product would get five stars, but I chose to get a customer return from Amazon which was described "as new" to save some money. Turned out the set up mike was missing and it had been registered with Sony, which meant I couldn't use internet services (without going through hoops with Sony). So I returned it got a refund and have now ordered a new one. Just wanted to warn people that "as new" ain't necessarily so!

5.0 out of 5 stars No noise on video, 17 July 2011
A reviewer of the WB700 states that there is a large amount of noise from the zoom during video capture. This is true out of the box, but there is a setting which makes it totally silent. In video mode go to settings/voice and turn "sound alive" ON. This is a clear case of "RTFM", Read The Flipping Manual!
