5.0 out of 5 stars Quality cable, 21 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a well made cable and it has die cast metal plugs on it which make it quite sturdy. There are also plastic end-caps that are fitted and tethered to the cable in case you ever want to store it at some point again.

This is a quality cable, as such it will rather curve around corners than turn a right angle, this is due to the amount of cores and protection inside the cable. You can bend it, so it will fit into tight spaces or around a door, etc but I would leave the large curves in the cable IF YOU CAN to stop any undue stress on its internal structure.

It works a treat, I can watch Sky in my other room now with no loss whatsoever. HD, 3D, Dolby Digital all working.

Definitely worth the money

5.0 out of 5 stars Let me watch Sky+HD/3D in two rooms, 21 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I wanted to be able to watch Sky+HD / 3D in two rooms so I purchased this box.

You plug in one input, the power and your two output cables, one up to my main TV and I bought a 10m lead to run to the TV in the bedroom.

It works perfectly and I am getting a perfect signal on both.

I also have RF connected for Freeview HD on the TVs so used a Sky Magic Eye via the RF lead to allow me to use the remote in the bedroom.

Works a treat and I can watch Sky in both rooms and watch recordings in both rooms.

I am unable to get Multiroom Sky as I am in a flat, so this was the only option and it works well.

Very happy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very reliable, frequent updates, just works., 14 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Out of all the Blu-Ray players, and there have been a few come and gone, the Sony players seem to be the best, i've had Samsung and LG as well and Sony have fewer errors, fewer weirdnesses, regular updates and usefull smart tv features.

They are by no means perfect, but stand out as being better.

The only downside to this box is that its shaped like an off centre diamond, a jewel like cut to the top of the case. This means its not level so nothing can sit on top and be flat.

That aside, it does look wonderful if you can spare it some room.

Useful feature not on all players is the ability to eject discs from the remote, great if a 3D disc doesn't want to be recognised as a 3D disc, which happens rarely but it saves you having to scramble to the player again and you can eject a disc and have it ready to swap by the time you get up which is handy.

If you pause the unit and it goes into standby, hitting play will start it off from where it stopped, not loosing your place.

On some TVs it will even power up/down the TV via the HDMI lead if its compatible (It did this on my Panasonic, imagine it does on a Sony too)

5.0 out of 5 stars Are you free Captain Peacock?, 14 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A true British classic. Do I need to say any more? Probably not.

Every episode a gem, of course the series belongs to Slocombe and Humphries, the more outragous characters on the Ladies and Mens counters at Grace Bros.

Even I remember when they served you out of those glass fronted drawers in stores and i'm not all that old.

How retail has changed in such a few years.

This is back when TV could be big, large studios, even larger than life characters.

There are a few extras in this but not a ton of them. I'd have liked a few more if that were possible.

Its beautifully packaged, one day someone will print out some Grace Bros bags and include them in a boxed set, they will fly out the door! Sadly not today, LOL

Just full of belly laughs and good moments.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic 70s, Classic Avengers, stylish., 14 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
How can you not love this? Its got the ever charming Steed, the delectable Purdey and the karate chopping modern man Gambit.

I've always love this series from the moment it was broadcast.

Some say they don't like the Canadian episodes but I love them too.

Is there anything that Joanna Lumley does that isn't a complete joy to behold?

What can I say, get it, watch it.

I love the so 70s black, white and red packaging, it oozes 70s style as does Gambit's apartment.

Those 70s cars, they may have been awful in real life, always breaking down, but my goodness they look so good!!!! I love me a Rover SD1 screeching to a halt or purdeys MGB or TR7, this is a treasure trove of 70s British cars.

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth ever last penny, brilliant show, well presented, 14 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
More extras than you can shake a stick at and wonderful quality.

The older the shows get and were talking old for recorded TV, they do suffer from audio bleeding into picture and horrible outside broadcast work, but that was the technology as it was back then, once you move into film with the Emma Peel era it gets so high quality.

Engrossing and wonderful to see how the character of Steed develops as well.

Worth every last penny.

Some people have complained about the packaging but if you take care its not going to damage easily, if you've ever seen the new star trek packaging you'll know what back packaging is, trust me and this is very well presented. Also includes an episode guide and a booklet or two (if forget!) as extras.

I had two of these both had faults with them and in the end they were both returned.

That said, when they worked the picture was stunning.

4.0 out of 5 stars Leaks over time, 14 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The ones I received seem to leak over time and you have to re-seal them quite often.

Not what I expected.

They are a large size, larger than I think the picture illustrates.

4.0 out of 5 stars Bit flimsly, but the auto on/off is great, 31 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These appear to be bluetooth or something similar and not infra-red like other makes. This means they can do two way communication, so the tv makes them flicker in time with the 3D image but also the glasses can tell the TV how much battery power they have left and that is displayed on the screen which is a nice feature so you dont run out of power before the movie ends.

The glasses also have a sensor that allows them to auto turn on when you move them and auto turn off when left alone. They don't turn off during a movie as your always moving your head just a little, enough to keep them turned on.

The only downside is that they are very flimsy. the top band is not thick and wobbles when you pick them up, it doesn't inspire confidence that they wont break easily.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great deal, 31 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a great deal but please limit yourself and your friends.

You can only eat so much liquorice before it has serious effects on your health.

Don't buy this to gorge on!

Delicious as they are!
