PROLINE DFV19U

 

Bought this as a cheap set top box. Initially tuned into 23 channels and worked for about 3 minutes. After that is had a life of its own retuning new channels which somehow stopped the original tuned channels from working. I'm planning to return it to...

DFV19U minor design fault!

WORKS VERY WELL

 

it works after it was fitted by a technician, we have had no problems after that, it's quite cute and small

Consumer review by:

I bought this unit as a replacement for a Phillips Freeview Box that had failed after several years of good use. I thought the Proline would be cheap and would last for a couple of years. I plugged it in, tuned it, then discovered the menu system...
