Freesat Set Top Box (STB)
We now have several videos online that describe the features of our products and how to use them.
Switched on, immediately it started the set up that only needed 3 clicks and it loaded everything. Software update easy. EPG great.<br/>Like the way it asks if you want HD if you log into an SD channel.<br/>Search for non-freesat (Free-to-Air) easy enough, BUT once downloaded there are about 8 versions of e.g. BBC 1, with nothing to say what the differences are!<br/>Documentation awful, doesn't even have a picture stating what the rear connections are for.<br/>Plugged in an external HDD, recording easy.
Bought three of these to replace outdated FoxSatHDR boxes. First one sits under our Freesat equipped Panasonic Plasma and is just for use as a PVR (added a £30 USB HD) As the TV already has a Sat tuner, we just didn't need a twin tuner unit. The other units are for the study and bedroom, and as these are only for occasional use, again, a twin tuner was overkill. <br/>Can't fault the boxes, work great, and the new menu/guide is excellent. <br/>They really are a single tuner version of the HDR. Perfect
Easy to set up. Menu very intuitive Added a HD for recording but unlike a computer USB output the USB power is removed on timer recording until it is required to record the program. I'm going to buy some more to replace my old Panasonic SAT boxes. Great product, as usual, from Humax. On Demand channels very good but you must remember to register with Freesat.co.uk if you want the full Freesat channels available e.g. Youtube etc.
