Bush DFTA1000/TECHNOSONIC SA201

Advantages: Freeview without a set-top box, cheap and cheerful
Disadvantages: Doesn't have the functionality of more expensive solutions

I needed a freeview box. Unfortunately the one I want hasn't been invented yet. The one I want needs to have a hard drive (160GB+). It needs to have twin tuners. It needs an optical output for Dolby 5.1 Surround Sound. It needs to support High Defin ...

Does exactly what it says on the tin

Advantages: All the features you'd expect from a low-spec freeview adapter
Disadvantages: Occasional crashes

I find that reviewing a freeview box is somewhat difficult, as there's not an awful lot of discerning features between low-end boxes. It decodes digital, it has audio and features text. So those aside I'll try and go into a bit more detail... The DFTA1 ...

What A Lovely Box

Advantages: Cheap, easy to use, reliable
Disadvantages: The EPG is a bit of a drag

I’ve pretty much always had Sky (or Virgin) but in 2010, the year the proverbial hit the fan, I decided I needed to cut some costs, first thing out the window was Sky. Towards the end I really never felt like I was watching the channels that cost so much, ...
