Rimax 5.8GHz AVS Additional Receiver

This is a fabulous idea. Much cheaper than getting another Sky box. It is easy to set up (and I am hopeless with technology). The only reason I am not giving 5 stars is because the picture quality is a little variable at times but is good overall. I...

Hitachi Freeview HD Digital Box

Two HD boxes have failed. The first one after a few hours viewing (kept switching off) etc. The replacement set lasted longer but now the HD channels keep pixelating and it swithes off after a few hours. When working the picture quality was very good....

Philips DTR5520

Common Interface slot for adding subscription channels would be very welcome, though its ability to create Dolby Digital is a useful – and unique – feature that could see the DTR5520 do well in a home cinema set-up.

Psylins Electronic Satellite Finder

Having set the elevation and azimuth by compass and inclinometer, the Satellite finder guided me both visually and audibly to the precise focus required to secure the best reception. The unit is well made, small enough to go in a jacket pocket, and...

Dion Digital Freeview Set Top Box With Twin Scart

I have had five set top boxes and this is the best. Twice the quality of others costing twice as much, twice as simple to set up and twice as easy to use via menus.

DIRECTV Black Satellite Off-Air Tuner

I do not recommend the am21. You do not get all the channels available for your area and I have had to reset the am 21 every 2-3 weeks because it loses channels.

Unbeatables Thomson DSI4214 Sky Box Digibox Satellite Digital Receiver...

After plugging it in, the volume control was the only thing that initially did not work which turned out to be because of our old TV, but after looking up Remote Contollers on the internet and re-programming the handset it all worked OK.

Topfield TF5000CI

Topfield has done nearly everything right with the TF5000PVRt. It's beautifully designed, can talk to PCs and is only lacking when it comes to HDTV.

Delphi XM Roady/Roady2 Remote Control

Does the job but the glow in the dark buttons doesn't stay lit for very long, so it's not enough to mention in the description. Also, it came without a battery- the damn battery costs as much as the remote itself! I contacted the seller about that and...

Direct Tv will not let you activate a product that was activated by someone else. They don't own it, they leased it, and it should have gone back to direct TV. Contacted seller and I am expected to pay return shipping - what a rip off
