Sagem DSI86 HD review


Sagem finally produces its first Freesat zapper – but it's not all that it could have been

Easy setup ; Upscaling works well ; Good HDMI pictures

Scart pictures could be better ; Multimedia features not enabled ; Limited non-Freesat support

The DSI86 HD is not a bad receiver but, with Metronic's SAT HD 100 currently going for a tenner less in some stores and throwing multimedia playback into the mix, it's hard to get enthused about it. Even with multimedia features enabled it would still...

Old product?


I read a lot of reviews for this before I bought it. I thought it was going to be an improvement on the satellite signal we are getting from the 'straight through' set up on our Panasonic TV. Disappointing generally.

Sagemcom Freesat Box


Wow, what a great box. Simple to connect to the sat dish cables and the TV then a few minutes with on screen set-up and I was ready. Loads of TV channels and a long list of radio stations, but best of all HD channels. They look great and it makes a big...
