Philips DTR220

 

The Philips DTR 220 provides access to Freeview digital TV and radio channels. The box itself measures 199x95x33mm and weighs just 400g. It has two SCART sockets and a built-in PKC (Pulse Killer Chip) to neutralise interference. The good Almost...

Avoid it like the plague!

 

The first one froze up several times a day, requiring me to unplug it & plug it back in again to restart it. After returning it & getting another one, the second one lost BBC1 & BBC2, and put up a message saying "An update on the channel lists was...
