tiny and terrific!,
This review is from: TVonics MFR-200 Small Digital Set Top Freeview Box (Electronics)
This is a terrific little gadget. It is just the thing for an old TV without a scart socket. It is so small that it fits on top of the tv using the self-adhesive pads (you can cut to size). The remote is easy to use (the remote that came with it is a large-size remote and not the tiny one pictured. Don't know if this is now standard or just an anomaly!!) .
To set it up you just switch on at mains, then plug the Tv aerial in at the back and use a coaxial lead to go from the unit to the tv. You then find a spare channel on the TV and "tune" it via UHF. The set-up menu appears when you reach the right point and you simply store the channel. The only minor niggle here is that you have to reset the RF default channel via the settings menu as the default (39) causes interference with channel 5 (37). I simply set it to 41 (you can go up or down) and it was fine. The picture is sharp/clear and it has a 7-day EPG which updates itself. (you can switch this function off via the menu if you wish). The menu has nice features such as picture ratio (4:3/4:3 letterbox or widescreen) and timer setting.
Overall a great item for that old (second/third?) tv that you want to add freeview to but don't have a scart socket.
