Goodmans GDB9


It was easy to install and use

I have this Freeview box in the bedroom, and I find the red/gold dial a little bright when the lights are turned off, so I put something over it i.e. a sock to dim the brightness.

Pretty good value for it is so cheap!

Mine kept switching to 16:9, even though I had set it to 4:3. Then all channels went black and white..or RED! I have had previous goodmans freview boxes and have been very happy with them, so this may have just been a bad one. Returned it for a refund.

Automatic setup handles absolutely everything. Digital audio output makes watching films on TV even better if you got the right cinema system, and if you got a widescreen TV it can output in 16:9 format in the relatively simple menu.

Only bad point is the fact there's no card slot for the pay-to-view channels.

Cheap, easy to use, all round good product.

Can sometimes fall victim to bad signal. Very short wires eg. scart and ariel.
