While the remote control might be considered large and not easily mislaid, the same can not be said to be true for the supplied Guide Book. This A6 booklet is small enough to be an obvious target for the Borrowers – that noted family of Impish...

Brilliant if you get Welsh by mistake

 

Changed my terrible Ferguson model for this one and wow ! what a difference. It works quickly and the remote is easy to use and very sturdy. One excellent feature is that if you pick up Welsh Channels mixed with you own area it asks which you want to...

So good I bought a second one

 

Simple to set up, simple to use with an excellent remote control, and the manual, unlike many, does not seem to have been translated from Korean into English by someone who speaks neither language - not that you really need the manual as everything is...
