Metronic 441816

Do not buy this unless you are in an area with very good reception. It is a very low sensitivity receiver. I had to bin mine and buy the dearer, but much more sensitive and better featured Metronic Eco Zapbox.

Wintal STB1HD

Purchased in 2010 with 3 years factory warranty for $110 from GoodGuys. Has worked far better than any of the others I have used over the years which have all died or given a pretty [censored word removed] reception. Rarely a digital signal hiccup....

Echostar T-101 FTA

Originally, a good product. Since the much publicised NTI split however, this box is now one of those displaying channels such as BBC 1 out of the correct order (800 in this case). So you end up with an odd channel list and no way or sorting it. BBC1,...

SIRIUS STH2 SIRIUS Home kit

The components are easy to assemble and set up. You can use headphones (not included) to listen to the reciever. You can also listen via any AM/FM radio. I had no problems getting the system to work with my knowledge of the Sirius Satelite locations...

Dick Smith GH5944

I didn't mind this STB when I first bought it about 7 months ago, I wasn't too keen on the program format in the guide, it's clunky and not easy to check what's on, you have to click through each channel one by one to see the programs, you don't get a...

Sirius ST5TK1 Starmate 5 Dock & Play Radio for Sirius Satellite Radio

This is a great choice if you're a new Sirius subscriber. The radio with a big screen/LCD type look is a waste of money if you live up north where the cold weather can cause the screen to freeze. The "pause" capability is exactly like a DVR/Tivo in...

Strong SRT 6006

I had previously an FTA by Lemon, which revealed to be really rubbish and died after less that 2 years of very light use. So I bought this Strong; I payed 30 euro for shipment in the continental Europe. The shipment was very fast, but the box was...

Strong SRT 5405 / 5405E

Can't complain - does what it said on the box - probably 2 to 3 years old now, and now drives a 30 year old 14" analogue from the "video out" into a VHF channel 4 converter box. The old Rank Arena set hasn't got UHF (wasn't around in 1982). I have...

Triax TD 88

Bought this item for use touring with caravan in southern France following the demise of the Freesat signal in early 2014. Flimsy construction, plastic locking bracket broke on very first use. LNB holder difficult to remove for travel, Metal edges very...

SatKing DVBS2-800CA

I purchased this unit after my UEC sat. decoder failed after only three years and I can make the following comparisons at least between those two units:: 1. The unit operates on 12V DC and an optional adapter (cigarette lighter) for camping is...

i-Link IS-9100 PVR FTA Receiver

I have this ilink and the 210. This ilink does not freeze with iks, rather it only pixalates and may scramble; so you have to flip back to it. When the server is down and then comes back up later this box is definitely more delayed than the ilink 210,...

DIRECTV SWM 4-Way Splitter

I received a unit that appears to be an equivalent. I paid a bit more for this as I wanted a DirecTv original. I also need it now otherwise I would have sent it back. Feel a bit ripped off! Will send it back if it doesn't perform perfectly.

Openbox S11 Skybox S11 HD PVR

Bought this upon recommendation. The guy that installed my box told me that it was an inferior product and demonstrated to me the difference between the f3 box and his own. And the difference was around 200 channels and less configuration choices. Had...

Digitel HT8300 PVR Standard Definition Digital

This unit was simple to record and easy to playback. Was loving it until 1 mth after warranty it would lose the HDD and have a message saying it has no HDD connected. I'd have to switch off the unit for a while to reset to get the HDD to be seen again....

Alpine CDE-124sxm

The Alpine CDE-124SXM is a great value for those who want to upgrade their car stereo with USB/iPod connectivity while adding very good SiriusXM connectivity.

Emitor Digisat Pro Twin Sat-Messgerät mit LCD-Anzeige

I've had one of these for a few years, it really is just the job for setting up a dish properly. As the first reviewer commented, the instructions leave a bit to be desired, but you soon get the hang of it. Can't imagine anything to do the job as well...

ZeeVee Zv-100NA Digital Set-Top Box Bundle

Well worth a couple hundred $$ but definitely not worth $500 it however was the only thing I could find that would allow me to access the same Media Center content in my whole house without purchasing individual media extenders.

Tiscali TV

The Tiscali TV service must be installed by an engineer for a one-off payment of £30, but is a great option if you intend to watch a lot of on-demand TV.
