RBT-2300

This uses a serial Bluetooth connection. I've found it to be very unreliable on several computers. I went as far as trying different Bluetooth adapters and Operating Systems. The few times I was able to connect I throughly documented the procedure....

DVB-T TV Tuner Cable Adapter Adaptor

The mini aerial connector (lower connector in photo example)is inadequate if you have less than a 100% signal quality. I have tested this thoroughly. Wintv tuners have a full sized coaxial socket which give no problems at all (i tested a wintv unit)...

Sagem DTR6480 T

I'm sure THIS box will be as good as my Sony CRT telly which still "does what it said on the tin" after 15 years . HOWEVER I bought a similar 6280T Sagem PVR 3 years ago and in March 2009 discovered it now needed an on-air update which I had apparently...

Viewsat Ultra Satellite TV Receiver Version 2.0

I bought this box about a year ago and it was really good but GUI is simplistic but functional. It lacks PVR support which is found in many boxes nowadays. I suggest getting the Conaxsat Duo. Better unit in my book and cheaper too and which is surprise...

Sky+ HD Digital box drx890 250gb

Input 2 is not working. I was busy with many other home improvement work and therefore took a bit of a time to open and install this box. By the time I realized that the input 2 is not working was too late to return the box. Absolutely waste of money....

SLX 28204R/04

Its small. Its unobtrusive. It works! This is the best Freeeview receiver that I have had. The picture is excellent and the speed of channel change is good. The text facity too is quick as is the EPG. The only downside is that the EPG is only of the...

Kogan Twin Tuner HD Digital Set-top Box with PVR

For the money this is a great buy if you want to record TV programs. I found it easy to use and simple to set up. Have had no problems at all. The EPG makes it really good for setting up to record future dated programs. It is a compact and light unit....

DGTEC DG-HD1609

Unit has a very good EPG and is easy to operate. Only down side is when using a USB recording stick from EPG guide, the recording often ceases half way through, giving you a black screen with no picture or sound, so half movie is lost.

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....

AUDIOVOX XM EXPRESSEZ Plug & Play Satellite Radio

Use this at home, carry it from room-to-room as needed. Not tried it in car (XM built in already) , so I don't know about using the FM modulator but the included instructions show a web site where you can enter your zip code to see where weak/empty FM...

SIRIUS Starmate 4 Radio with Car Kit

To the people that are complaining about the FM transmitter, I found it worked a lot better if you just don't hook up the antenna at all, and it comes in crystal clear... Also, pausing live radio is sooo cool, its like Tivo for your radio.

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,...

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...
