Overall a very good receiver,
This review is from: Philips DTR5520 Freeview HD Digital Terrestrial Receiver Zapper (Electronics)
I bought this item recently and have been very impressed with it. Once you overcome a couple of technical difficulties the set performs very well. Firstly it requires a software update before you are able to use it and the download is annoyingly slow. The problem being when you try and select a channel to watch from the program guide well it won't let you but the update fixes that bug. Secondly there was a conflict between the set, my Sony DVD player and my Sony Bravia television using the HDMI cable. The DVD player wouldn't function correctly but this is overcome by turning the controls for HDMI off on both the TV and the DVD player.
Once these problems are overcome the picture is superb on both the standard Freeview channels and the high definition channels. The set is easy to use, the guide uncomplicated and the remote nicely laid out. Sound is a little quiet on the HD channels but I understand that's normal. Overall I would recommend this set to anyone wishing to upgrade to High Definition.... 4 stars.
