Bush DFTA1

This Bush Freeview box, the DFTA1, is a stylish slimline affair, with rounded corners, a silver exterior and a blue fascia piquing interest. Other than that, it's business as usual

We bought this RCA receiver when we got satellite 16 months ago. Its features were adequate but not intuitive. After 4 months of minimal use as a second-room receiver the unit stopped receiving 2/3 of all channels. Tech support offered very little...

2 Room DIRECTV Receiver

This was much better than the last non Tivo DTV DVR I tried. I tried the last one for 2 months before I had my TIVO repaired. I recorded last years Superbowl on DT HDDVR and on my old 2002 DTV Tivo HDVR2. I watched the game on the SD HDVR2 Tivo because...

I am on my umpteenth replacement box in the last couple of years and have finally given up with this box. It seems to mis-time the starting of programmes which usually means that I end up with 10 minutes chopped off the end of programmes such as Family...

RCA Ultimate TV Satellite System - DS4290RE Digital Video Recording

By I bought one of these from a bricks and boards store and (fortunately) bought a replacement extended warranty. My 4th unit since 12/9/01 has just failed entirely. Don't waste your money. Extended warranty or no, I'm ridding myself of this nuisance.

I bought this unit this week and was some what disappointed with it. First the mickey mouse toy-like remote control which is very light and small, the buttons to choose the channels are tiny, ok for a small child not for an adult. The picture quality...

This thing works great! I've been using it for more than 6 months and couldn't be happier! Make sure you get your 75 Ohm resistors if you're not using every port.
