Newbie question: ONDigital box for freeview? by Mr Smith
Thanks.... I have a slight problem though and dont know whether it is related to the failure of the box or something else. The Box worked fine until ITV digital went tits up. I packed it away and forgot about it until today. I have taken it out of the box, plugged it in and nothing happens i.e. no lights, no response etc. Ive changed the fuse and still nothing. Im wondering is my box knackered...

Your views? I don't really WANT freeview... I don't get too much time to watch the telly, but, I've just moved into the Midlands, and our terrestrial reception is affected badly by the Malverns. Our neighbours say that Freeivew is a complete lifesaver, so, I've been looking around. The cheapest seems to be the Grundig GDT1500 - 68 from Curry's. I noticed an earlier post (about aerial in...

BBC FTA satellite and Widescreen. by David
I have tuned my digi FTA box into the BBC on the 28deg. satellite and find most of the BBC1 stations auto switch my Tv to wide. But the other BBC stations and the 2 or 3 BBC1's do not, just give a squashed picture and I have to use the Tv aspect button to make it go wide. Seems a strange situation to me. If it did not work on all then I would just think it was my digi box. -- Regards,

PC Based PVR - Is this an ok spec? by Neil Deadman
Since I upgraded my machine I have had a few components lying around that I am going to use to build a second PC anyway.

New Philips DTT box. by Clem Dye
I was having a browse through the new Argos catalogue yesterday and came across a new Philips DTT box, the DTR 1500. It looks a bit like the forthcoming Sony (to me). Unfortunately, it doesn't seem to have digital audio out, so I doubt if I'd bother, but it may be OK on second system. When the likes of Pioneer, Sony & Philips releasing new DTT boxes, it seems to me like Freeview is here to...

Flat Screen Maintenance by Edward Holt
Someone recently told me that maintenance is required for some flat screen TVs every few years. Is that correct or has my friend been misled?

Digital TV Picture Break Up by mlp
Just wondering do all free to air dtv boxes suffer from picture break up regularly. I have an old On Digital Pioneer Box and this seem to exhibit this a lot - the sound is an occasional problem but usually it's just the picture that breaks up. Would this be likely to be solved with a newer freeview box? TIA Marcel

Belmont unwatchable last night by Tim Mitchell
It's probably the weather, but around 10pm last night the signal from Belmont became almost totally unwatchable in Hull, both analogue (very snowy, wavery rolling pictures) and digital (normally 90% signal, box reporting no signal). Curiously the only channel which was still watchable on both analogue and digital was C5, which is normally the worst quality. I gave up and went to read a...
