Great little Receiver for price.,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: SCART FREEVIEW, DIGITAL TV RECEIVER RECORDER TUNER SET TOP BOX, USB MEMORY RECORDER, SD CARD READER, HINGED for LCD TVs by Digi-funŽ (Electronics)I ordered this on Saturday afternoon and paid standard delivery as I was in no rush and it was delivered Monday afternoon, great service Digi Fun.
As for the Receiver, it is a compact little unit that hides easily behing your TV, it has an IR extension module that you can site in a more convenient place.
I plugged it in and it went straight into setup mode, found 130+ channels and downloaded the guide.
Picture quality is more than acceptable for the price, and the remote is easy to navigate.
This particular model supports SD cards and External usb devices (micro to usb lead supplied, which is a nice touch) the SD card seems to be just for playing back media (photo's music etc) and you can plug in an external usb drive to record which needs to be formatted as 'fat' but again the receiver does this for you and is easy to work out.
Pressing record gives you a standard .mpg file that is 720*576 25fps (standard PAL resolution) which can be played and edited on any PC, or played back on the Receiver.
The mains power adaptor lead is a little on the short side, and the manual is not the greatest, but if you have navigated a freeview menu before you shouldn't have any problems as it's fairly self explanitary, oh and you will need two AAA batteries for the remote as these are not supplied.
All in all I can highly recommend the Receiver, much nicer than having a box stuck at the side of the television.
