5.0 out of 5 stars Great Unit - limited choice of channels, 25 Aug. 2008
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought this great little box a couple of months ago and it does everything it says. The greens and reds are a bit vivid for me but the picture is faultless and the sound is something else using the HDMI lead (which had to be bought separate). The only problem is your limited to the number of channels you can watch. Its all very well saying there's 91, but most of them are "regional" channels showing the same program. Set-up is simplicity its self with the only question it asks is to enter your postcode. Don't forget to get the "update" after installing it. I have put mine back in its box for now and returned to "normal" SKY but only for more viewing choice.

However, if tempted I don't want to put you of and to help you save money, if you have SKY you don't need a satellite dish, just unplug your SKY unit, pop in your HD unit and connect up, the same satellite sends both signals. There, that's saved you £80 so that's another reason to consider one.. Amazon, delivery as good as ever - five stars for unit and delivery.

All Foxsat's should come with an HDMI cable (as well as SCART, etc) in the box, it is a standard accessory from Humax for the product.

Hi, one question, can you get channel 5 on all Freesat boxes?

can you have sky and freesat in the satellite at the same time with both working?

I am having it done. You usually have to an extra piece of kit to split the signal into more cables on the dish. A satellite installer can do this. I think it works on the same principles as having sky multi-room, but without paying extra.

Not sure why you state the number of channels is 'limited', and you can only get 91. We have this receiver and we can watch over 400 free channels after my husband re-scanned the satellite at 28 degrees east!
