Goodmans GFSAT200HD review

 

Straightforward HD-capable Freesat receiver at a decent price

Ease of use ; HDMI picture quality ; Manual tuning mode ; LNB out

Basic user interface ; No RGB output

Provides a hassle-free way of getting subscription-free TV, but the more sophisticated Humax offering pips Goodmans to the post

Goodmans GFSAT200HD HD Freesat Receiver

 

Goodmans joins the Freesat movement with its first HD receiver, the GFSAT200HD.

Also on the rear is an Ethernet port for future broadband IPTV services and advanced interactivity, and an optical digital audio output for sending Dolby Digital audio (which accompanies most HD broadcasts) to an amp with the relevant decoding. Finally...

Goodmans GFSAT200HD review

 

Although the initial set-up is temperamental, this is a solid Freesat all-rounder in a stylish box

Very compact ; sound is fairly balanced ; clean and stable with all pictures, particularly HD

Temperamental first set-up ; slightly soft SD images ; Humax menus are better

Overall, we have the same pros/cons as the Grundig and the Bush, but this is a more stylish box in our eyes

Goodmans GFSAT200HD

 

Set-up was quick and trouble free.

Confusing for my dear old mother to have to find the right button on the TV remote to switch to the free-sat box. Also simple channels like BBC1 and BBC2 need more than pressing 1 or 2 to view, which is counter intuitive.

Goodmans GFSAT200HD

 

Easy to install and so very easy to use with an excellent timing function.

If you preset a channnel, when you switch to it the volume goes on full and you need to turn it down.

Goodmans GFSAT200HD

 

Does what it says on the box,

When flipping through the channels the sound will increase dramatically when a hd channel is found.The volume control on the remote is ineffective in controlling this.(The volume on the T.V. should be used as opposed to the Freesat Box) Apart from this...
