TVonics MDR-240 review


It's rather pricey, but TVonics' latest adapter is the first to meet government standards for Freeview receivers

Novice- friendly ; Good pictures and sound ; Twin Scarts

No favourites lists ; A bit expensive ; No modulator

£40 is bit much to ask for an adapter these days especially when competitors' products are offering USB media playback for the same price. However, build quality, performance and novice friendly software make the MDR-240 a reliable switchover upgrade...

TVonics MDR-240


With the digital switch-over already under progress, the thoughts of many viewers are turning towards the subject of a set-top box to work in conjunction with their existing analogue television set.

TVonics MDR-240


A competant set-top box, easy to install (RF and SCART). The EPG sits on top of the current station, so you can channel surf and keep an eye on your current choice

The EPG text lacks clarity

The best box you can buy


Like most people I have had a number of set top boxes and most I have found to have the same problems namely freezing and having rubbish EPG's. This box is the exception it is brilliant! I promise you for the money you will not get a better. The only...
