Default Peoples expectations of others.

Yeah a Grundig ( who makes theese now?) TV supposedly has U view but nobody
could get it to do anything.

Be aware never buy second hand tvs any more they are probably obsolete
software wise.

I've been given a Talktalk "Youview" box to fix, or diagnose, or
something, with the fault described as "doesn't work", and I've never

of some sort but I can't go any further because they forgot to include
the remote control. Assuming I'm eventually supplied with this, if
something doesn't make itself obvious very quickly I might just hand
it back marked "no fault found". I should really have learned by now
that life's too short to worry about other people's problems when they
can't even tell you what they are.

Youview boxes are virtually useless without an internet connection.

We have one (with a hard-wired internet connection),but it would work like
any other 1Tb HDD Freeview PVR without the internet.

It might be worth asking if the owner had wired it into his router.

Are there any that have no recording medium? I have seen a TV like that,
but not (yet) a box.
