    What a bargain.
    I have a 42" Plasma at the moment...but when pops moves in with his Fiancee he'll be taking it with him....leaving me without the TV Freeview, SKY etc....so I bought myself the little Freeview box from Tesco for £10.
    Plugged in....set itself up....bingo.
    Not that I watch much TV....but when I'm bored I do.;)

  3. Hope its not like the cheap one I got out of ASDA. It failed twice, each time they gave me a new box. The 2nd time I got my money back and bough a better one

    Lol.... So far so good. I had to change the RGB setting as everything was showing blue.....sussed it out straight away though and using a Scart lead it gives a good pic. So far...faultless. ;)

  10. i used to have freeview, we called it block-o-vision in our house due to the poor signal we had when ever there was high pressure system over the south of england

    Probably made in Turkey, that's where Vestel's factory still is I think. It's possible it was manufactured in Turkey (or elsewhere) and flown in to the UK (or elsewhere) and assembled as happens with their LCD tvs which are then badged as other companies.

    I got a laugh when I saw the picture of the box as it's the same as the digihome box I bought my girlfriend 18 months ago for £27 which went down in price to about £23 before moving onto argos as a SEG at a similar price.
