Technisat HDFS review


Technisat launches its first Freesat HD receiver with multimedia and streaming thrown into the mix. Is it a Humax-beater?

HD pictures/sound ; Multimedia playback/streaming ; Good multi-satellite support

A little pricey ; No LNB loopthrough ; Interface a bit too grey

With the Metronic Sat HD 100 offering similar multimedia functionality, albeit without streaming, a question mark hangs over the price (it does come with a three-year warranty). However, particularly if you demand more from a Freesat box than just...

It might have only one tuner and no hard drive, but this versatile bargain Freeview HD box is a force to be reckoned with

Superb for the spondoolicks. If TechniSat ever makes a twin-tuner version, the big boys would really start to sweat

A superb solution for its price – if TechniSat ever produces a twin-tuner PVR version, Humax would have serious competition

High-quality picture and sound ; excellent feature set ; stylish build ; good usability

It' ; s only a single-tuner design

It is good for freesat.


It is a good freesat box. Easy to tune in. Fantastic quality picture and sound. The only minor point is that you can not watch or receive channels/satellites while it is on freesat mode freesat channels only. Once you switched over to Technisat mode...

Review of Technisat


Bloody fantastic piece of kit - cant fault it, would be five stars if it saved to LAN HD, so you could watch it elsewhere with another box, the transfer rate is just to slow though. That is the only fault, and it is probably me being too picky.

Technisat HDFS


A versatile freesat and general free to air receiver

The USB recorder function is clearly an afterthought and is not integrated particularly well. Has only a single tuner
